The end of the Summer Mystery Shawlette, that is.
If you have completed Chart C, your work should look something like this:
Here is the final clue in pdf format, which contains the last chart, Chart D, along with that chart in written out line-by-line form.

I hope you have enjoyed this KAL, and if you did, you will consider buying my upcoming book: Wendy Knits Lace: Essential Techniques and Patterns for Irresistible Everyday Lace, which will be released on August 23, 2011.

My Hitchcock Writing Desk
In the comments “amy1″ mentioned having a writing desk identical to mine. It is a Hitchcock Writing Desk and just for grins, I searched a little to see if I could find one online. Here is a listing with photo for one that was sold at auction. It appears to be identical to mine. I bought mine from Ethan Allen in the mid-1980s. A deciding factor in its purchase was that it matched the Hitchcock chairs I already had — which had been my grandmother’s chairs.
These are “Kling Turtle Back Hitchcock” chairs, and while I’ve seen pictures of many different Hitchcock turtle back chairs, I’ve not found one identical to mine.
Sadly, the Hitchcock company went out of business a few years ago.
My Windsor chair (which I love) is also made by Hitchcock, but is not decorated in their distinctive style.
I love chairs
