Stitches are picked up for front bands and the shawl collar, which is shaped with short rows (explained in detail). Armhole edgings are worked and a front closure is sewn on. Our sample was knit in Size 1. NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting patterns are charted. Recommended for Intermediate lace knitters.
