Has anyone written this out in English? I was going to try but have no idea what "no stitch" means? Your time is grealy appreciated!

Sara are you still making this? I'm almost finished. If there's no stitch, just don't mention it when you write it out. But really, should you just try to do it from chart? There's also a knitalong if you search swallowtail shawl on google.

Thanks for taking the time to post. Don't mention the stitch....that makes too much sense :wall: !! I would love to see a picture of your shawl. What yarn did you select....using Size 2 needles. How did the NUPP go?

I used Jagerspun that Calamintha on KH recommended. Enough to make the shawl for $8!!! It's merino and silk. http://theknitter.com/yarn-yagger-spun-zephyr-wool-silk.html Free shipping too!

They recommend size 4 needle actually, but I used 5 (didn't have 4). Re the nupps - I've blogged excessively over them. But all I can say is KNIT THEM LOOSE - LOOSER than you ever thought. And I changed over to my Boye interchangeables and put a 3 on the purl side to make it even easier. I'll post my finished on my blog probably tomorrow. You can click www below to see it.

Have you knit much lace?
