Rows 6 thru 11 form pattern. Repeat till no more yarn. Color A will end first I used color B for bottom trim as follows:
**RS work Eyelet row (11), purl back, knit back, purl back, then repeat Eyelet row (11) ** repeat edging to end BO.

Keeping this pattern of increase at the edges and center. Alternating colors 4 rows of A change to B for 2 rows. The change happens in the purl side (wrong side).

I just received two skeins of this beautiful yarn from my husband! I thought first about making a hat or/ and mittens. Then I started to think about designing a shawl myself. but when I saw your pattern I decided it (why re-invent the wheel?!). I wear shawls a lot and will be able to enjoy my yarn year round :)
Now I can't wait to start on this :)
Thank you for sharing the pattern.
