On your first week it is worth checking to make sure that your motifs aren’t a lot bigger or smaller than the given tension. It doesn’t matter if they are slightly different from this size, but if the motifs are much different from this measurement then change your hook size to make the finished shawl to the given dimensions. You’ll be working in the round, always from the right side, and weave in your ends as you go.
