Chalisa is a versatile accessory that can be dressed as a shawl or as a kerchief scarf. Chalisa Shawl is worked top-down and back and forth over three sections (one triangle, one center panel and one triangle) with five charts of lace patterning. Both triangles are equal, so the same chart is worked at both triangles. Stitch instructions are both charted and written to make your knitting experience more relaxing and pleasant. Stitch counts are available to keep on track. ***ERRATA: PDF updated Sept 13 / 2012 Chalissa had an error at the Center Chart 1 = instead of the YO increase at the beginning and ending of the rows 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 the correct increase are Kfb (knit the stitch front and back) I sincerely hope that you have not been inconvenienced by this problem with the chart. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit Purl Increase using yo (yarn over) ***Stitch instructions are both charted and written GAUGE 24 stitches & 30 rows in 4 in lace pattern from Chart 2 after blocking SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 65 inches by 25 inches *** measurements after blocking SUGGESTED YARN 720 yards of Lace weight
