Your knitting will begin (referring to my photo) at the center top of the shawl. You will knit a yarn over at the end of each row and on either side of the center stitch and this will create the triangle. The rows increase by 4 yarn overs on every right side row. Follow the directions literally and I would suggest casting on without having to understand ever step of the journey. Trust the designer (the pattern works very well) and just take it as the pattern is written - start at the "Set Up" and move through the rows as they are numbered 1 - 28.

ETA: you knit a yarn over at the BEGINNING and END of each row as well as on either side of the center stitch to make 4 yarn overs per row. But just follow the directions and the pattern will unfold.

I am using a yarn with mohair and did not want to take it apart. Thank you, Thankyou! I can't wait to get started!

I am an experienced knitter and was completely confused by this....until I started! Just take it as it reads it is simple. Just to clarify things you are starting on the long top edge. This edge is actually the side edges and it opens up like a fan. Also, count your stitches at the end of every right side row, the chart tells you how many you should have. If you don't have the correct number it is much simplier to correct it at this point.

Please help, when do we knit the shell chart? Is this done after we complete the main Body of the shawl?
