EXQUISITE PINEAPPLE SHAWL
I thought I’d try .. and am thrilled that it worked.
I worked 3 repeats of 18-21 and then carried on with the pattern from Row 22.
Now the having said that, one will need to remember that instructions from Row 22 (due to the number of increases we have made, if you veer away from the original pattern) need to be calculated yourself.
This is not such a big worry because the designer has done two wonderful things
(a) she has marked / underlined which set are the centre , and
(b) after Row 21, the pattern kind-of changes to start the pineapples, and then it’s just the pineapples till the end.
