GARTER ST (back and forth on circular needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

KNITTING TIP:
It is important when changing color in the stripes with 3 ridges light gray purple and 1 ridge gray purple, to lightly pull both the piece and strand of yarn to avoid a tight edge.
----------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
Work piece in 2 parts, i.e. first part is worked as a diagonal edge on shawl. Then pick up along one long side on this part and finish the shawl. READ KNITTING TIP!

1ST PART (= A on chart):
Cast on 3 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with light gray purple.
Row 1 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 2 (= RS): K 1, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 1 = 5 sts.
Row 3 (= WS): K 1, K 1 twisted, K 3 (last YO = hole) = 5 sts.
Row 4 (= RS): K all sts.
Row 5 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 6 (= RS): K 1, 1 YO, K 3, 1 YO, K 1 = 7 sts.
Row 7 (= WS): K 1, K 1 twisted, K 5 (last YO = hole) = 7 sts.
Row 8 (= RS): Switch to gray purple and K all sts.
Row 9 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 10 (= RS): Switch back to light gray purple and K 1, 1 YO, K 5, 1 YO, K 1 = 9 sts.
Row 11 (= WS): K 1, K 1 twisted, K 7 (last YO = hole) = 9 sts.
Repeat rows 4-11 until there are 45 sts on needle (i.e. inc in each side every 4th row AT THE SAME TIME work stripes with 3 ridges light gray purple and 1 ridge gray purple). When there are 45 sts on needle, piece measures approx. 20 cm / 8'' in width (measured along sts). Work 1 ridge more with light gray purple so that there are 2 ridges with light gray purple after 1 ridge with gray purple.

Then work as follows:
Row 1 (= RS and continue with light gray purple): K 1, 1 YO, K until 3 sts remain on row, K 2 tog and K 1 = 45 sts.
Row 2 (= WS): K all sts (YO = hole) = 45 sts.
Row 3 (= RS): Switch to gray purple and K all sts.
Row 4 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 5 (= RS): Switch back to light gray purple and K 1, 1 YO, K until 3 sts remain on needle, K 2 tog and K 1 = 45 sts.
Row 6 (= WS): K all sts (YO = hole) = 45 sts.
Row 7 (= RS): K all sts.
Row 8 (= WS): K all sts.
Repeat rows 1-8, i.e. inc in one side and dec in the other side every 4th row (i.e. every other row from RS) and continue stripes as before with 3 ridges light gray purple and 1 ridge gray purple.
When piece measures approx. 85 cm / 33½'' along right long side (seen from RS) – finish after 2 ridges with light gray purple, insert 1 marker at beg of row from RS. There should now be approx. 95 holes along right long side (seen from RS).

Continue to dec as follows:
Row 1 (= RS and continue with light gray purple): K until 3 sts remain on row, K 2 tog and K 1 = 44 sts.
Row 2 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 3 (= RS): Switch to gray purple and K all sts.
Row 4 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 5 (= RS): Switch back to light gray purple and K until 3 sts remain, K 2 tog, K 1 = 43 sts.
Row 6 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 7 (= RS): K all sts.
Row 8 (= WS): K all sts.
Repeat rows 1-8, i.e. dec 1 st at end of every 4th row (i.e. at the end of every other row from RS) and continue stripes as before with 3 ridges light gray purple and 1 ridge gray purple. When 3 sts remain on row, work as follows: K 1, K 2 tog, turn piece, K 2, turn piece, K 2 tog, cut the yarn and pull it through st.

2ND PART (= B on chart):
Pick up from RS with gray purple as follows: Pick up 1 st in the tip on part A (marked with a star on chart), pick up 1 st through first hole, i.e. insert needle through hole, get the yarn and pull yarn back through hole, * 1 YO on needle, pick up 1 st through next hole (= 2 new sts on needle) *, repeat from *-* along the entire side with hole until marker, so that there are 190 sts on needle (if you need to pick up more sts to get correct no of sts, pick up 1 st between holes evenly).

Then work as follows:
Row 1 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 2 (= RS): K until 3 sts remain on row, K 2 tog and K 1 (= 1 st dec).
Row 3 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 4 (= RS): K 1, 1 YO, K until 4 sts on row, K 3 tog, K 1 (= 1 st inc and 2 sts dec).
Row 5 (= WS): K until 2 sts remain on row, K YO twisted and finish K 1.
Row 6 (= RS): K until 3 sts remain on row, K 2 tog and K 1 (= 1 st dec).
Row 7 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 8 (= RS): Switch to light gray purple and K 1, 1 YO, K until 4 sts remain on needle, K 3 tog and K 1 (= 1 st inc and 2 sts dec).
Row 9 (= WS): K until 2 sts remain on row, K YO twisted and finish K 1.
Row 10 (= RS): Switch back to gray purple and K until 3 sts remain on row, K 2 tog and K 1 (= 1 st dec).
Row 11 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 12 (= RS): K 1, 1 YO, K until 4 sts on row, K 3 tog and K 1 (= 1 st inc and 2 sts dec).
Row 13 (= WS): K until 2 sts remain on row, K YO twisted and finish K 1.
Repeat rows 6-13 until piece measures approx. 15 cm / 6'' from where sts were picked up - finish after 3 ridges with gray purple.

Then work as follows:
Row 1 (= RS): Switch to light gray purple and K until 3 sts remain on row, K 2 tog and K 1 (= 1 st dec).
Row 2 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 3 (= RS): Switch to gray purple and K 1, 1 YO, K until 4 sts remain on needle, K 3 tog and K 1 (= 1 st inc and 2 sts dec).
Row 4 (= WS): K until 2 sts remain on row, K YO twisted and finish K 1.
Repeat rows 1-4 until piece measures approx. 31 cm / 12 1/4'' from where sts were picked up - finish after 1 ridge with light gray purple.

Then work as before but only with gray purple, i.e. dec alternately 1 and 2 sts at the end of every row from RS and inc 1 st at beg of every other row from RS. When all sts have been dec, cut the yarn and weave in all tails.
