Special Notes:
• Construct It: a top-down crescent shaped shawl.
• Work It: the Butterfly Dip Stitch (bds) can be worked as a knit or purl, whatever is most comfortable for you! The glossary and photos show it worked as a knit. Consistency is what is important, not methodology.
• Watch It: check out the mini tutorials for 1/1 cables without a cable needle and bds on the Knit Eco Chic blog.
• Navigate It: written directions page 3, charted directions 4-5, Bind Off written and charted directions page 6.
