First: This pattern is NOT for an Intermediate knitter. It is Advanced. Second: There are TWO errors in the pattern, not just the one noted. In Part 10: "Using second needle, with RS facing, using A . . ." A?? There is not color "A." Should be "C1."
Granted, the shawl is gorgeous, but the tedious procedure of knitting it, particularly with a diagram that does not resemble the finished product, and the mistakes, and the fact that no Intermediate knitter would likely continue to try to finish the piece, makes it a "fair" pattern for me.
