SHAWL:
The shawl consists of several fans knitted together along the way. Beg at the bottom of shawl with fan 1 – see diagram A.1. Then work fan 2 as explained below. Then work fan 3 etc.

FAN 1:
Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 61 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Fabel and work as follows:
ROW 1 (= RS): K all sts.
ROW 2 (= WS): K all sts.
ROW 3: K 2 tog, K 9, * slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso, K 6 *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total, K 3, K 2 tog = 49 sts.
ROW 4-7: K all sts.
ROW 8 (= WS): K 1, * 1 YO, P 2 tog *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 49 sts.
ROW 9-10: K all sts.
ROW 11: K 2 tog, K 7, * slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso, K 4 *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total, K 3, K 2 tog = 37 sts.
ROW 12-15: K all sts.
ROW 16 (= WS): K 1, * 1 YO, P 2 tog *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 37 sts.
ROW 17-18: K all sts.
ROW 19: K 2 tog, K 5, * slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso, K 7 *, repeat from *-* 2 times in total, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso, K 5, K 2 tog = 29 sts.
ROW 20-26: K all sts.
ROW 27: K 2 tog, K 3, * slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso, K 5 *, repeat from *-* 2 times in total, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso, K 3, K 2 tog = 21 sts.
ROW 28-29: K all sts.
ROW 30 (= WS): K 1, * 1 YO, P 2 tog *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 21 sts.
ROW 31-34: K all sts.
ROW 35: K 2 tog, K 7, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso, K 7, K 2 tog = 17 sts.
ROW 36-42: K all sts.
ROW 43: K 2 tog, K 5, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso, K 5, K 2 tog = 13 sts.
ROW 44-48: K all sts.
ROW 49: K 2 tog, K 3, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso, K 3, K 2 tog = 9 sts.
ROW 50-54: K all sts.
ROW 55: K 2 tog, K 1, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso, K 1, K 2 tog = 5 sts.
ROW 56-58: K all sts.
ROW 59: K 1, slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso, K 1 = 3 sts.
ROW 60: K all sts.
ROW 61: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso = 1 st.
Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining st and fasten.

FAN 2:
Cast on 30 sts on needle, in addition pick up 31 sts along the right edge on FAN 1 (seen from RS) – i.e. pick up 1 st in every ridge and approx. 1 st in every row with holes = 61 sts on row.
Then work as FAN 1 but from 2nd row (i.e. beg with K from WS).

FAN 3:
Pick up 31 sts along the left edge on FAN 1 (seen from RS), then cast on 30 new sts at the end of row = 61 sts. Then work as FAN 1 but from 2nd row (i.e. beg with K from WS).

FAN 4:
Work as FAN 2.

FAN 5:
Pick up 30 sts along the left edge on FAN 2 (seen from RS), pick up 1 st at the tip at the top on FAN 1 and pick up 30 sts along the right edge on FAN 3 = 61 sts. Then work as FAN 1 but from 2nd row (i.e. beg with K from WS).

FAN 6:
Work as FAN 3.

First, second and third row with fans have been worked. Continue like this upwards - see diagram A.1 for correct order. When a total of 36 fans have been worked, work half circles between every fan so that the edge at the top of shawl is straight.

HALF CIRCLE BETWEEN EVERY FAN:
Pick up from RS 61 sts along the edge between 2 fans – i.e. pick up 1 st in every ridge and approx. 1 st in every row with holes + 1 st between two fans at the tip at the top of fan from the row below.
Then work as follows:

ROW 1 (= WS): K all sts.
ROW 2 (= RS): K all sts.
ROW 3: K all sts.
ROW 4: * K 3, K 2 tog *, repeat from *-* until 1 st remains and finish with K 1 = 49 sts.
ROW 5: K 1, * 1 YO, P 2 tog *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 49 sts.
ROW 6: K all sts.
ROW 7 (= WS): K 1, * 1 YO, P 2 tog *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 49 sts.
ROW 8-14: K all sts.
ROW 15 (= WS): K 1, * 1 YO, P 2 tog *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 49 sts.
ROW 16-17: K all sts.
ROW 18: K all sts tog 2 by 2 until 1 st remains, finish with K 1 = 25 sts.
ROW 19-25: K all sts.
ROW 26: K all sts tog 2 by 2 until 1 st remains, finish with K 1 = 13 sts.
ROW 27: K all sts.
ROW 28: K all sts tog 2 by 2 until 1 st remains, finish with K 1 = 7 sts.
ROW 29: K all sts.
ROW 30: K all sts tog 2 by 2 until 1 st remains, finish with K 1 = 4 sts.
ROW 31: K all sts.
ROW 32: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 3 tog and psso = 1 st.
Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining st, tighten tog and fasten.

HALF CIRCLE ON THE RIGHT EDGE OF SHAWL (seen from RS):
Cast on 30 sts on needle, in addition pick up 31 sts along the right edge on FAN 29 (seen from RS) = 61 sts on row.
Then work HALF CIRCLE BETWEEN EVERY FAN.

HALF CIRCLE ON THE LEFT EDGE OF SHAWL (seen from RS):
Pick up 31 sts along the left edge on FAN 36 (seen from RS), and cast on 30 new sts at the end of row = 61 sts. Then work HALF CIRCLE BETWEEN EVERY FAN.

EDGE IN GARTER ST AT THE TOP OF SHAWL:
Cast on 4 sts on 1 double pointed needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. K 1 row (= RS). Work next row as follows from WS: * Pick up the outermost st in garter ridge in the left side of shawl (with WS towards you), work first st on left needle, pass the new st over, K the rest of row, turn piece, K back over the 4 sts, turn piece *, repeat these 2 rows from *-* until 1 st has been picked up in approx. every st in garter ridges along the entire edge at the top of shawl.
