KNITTING GAUGE:
This garment is to be soaked and blocked/stretched to size afterwards so the knitting gauge is not that important. But to get a sense of whether you are working too loose/tight, work a test on needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 in stockinette st and get approx. 23 sts x 30 rows = 10 x 10 cm / 4’’ x 4’’.

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show the pattern from RS.

BOBBLE:
Row 1 (RS): Work 7 sts in 1 st as follows: * K 1, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times and finish with K 1 = 7 sts. It is important to work the sts loosely (approx. 1 cm / 3/8’’ long).
Row 2 (WS): P these 7 sts tog. It will be difficult to work the sts from 1st row tog if they are too short and too tight.
---------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 105 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Lace and K 1 row from WS. Work next row as follows from RS: 3 sts in GARTER ST – see explanation above, A.1AA (= 13 sts), A.1BB over the next 80 sts, A.1CC (= 6 sts), finish with 3 sts in garter st.
When AA, BB and CC have been worked, there are 81 sts on needle. Work next row as follows: 3 sts in GARTER ST – see explanation above, A.1A (= 9 sts), A.1B over the next 60 sts, A.1C (= 6 sts), finish with 3 sts in garter st.
Continue like this until A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically (last row = from WS), then K 5 rows and P 1 row from WS.
Then work as follows from RS: 3 sts in garter st, A.2A (= 5 sts), A.2B over the next 64 sts, A.2C (= 6 sts), finish with 3 sts in garter st.
Continue like this until piece measures approx. 75 cm / 29½, make sure that one complete repetition of A.2 has been worked vertically.
Now K 4 rows over all sts.
Put all sts on a stitch holder. Knit another part the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Graft/sew the 2 parts tog stitch by stitch.

BLOCKING:
Place the shawl in lukewarm water until it is soaking wet. Carefully squeeze the water out of the shawl - do not twist the shawl - then roll the shawl in a towel and squeeze to remove more water - the shawl will now only be moist.
Place the shawl on a carpet or mattress - carefully stretch it out to size and fasten it with pins. Leave to dry. Repeat the process when the garment has been washed.
