Knitting tension: 20 sts x 26 rows on needles size 4.5mm in stocking stitch = 10x10cm,
Pattern: See diagram M.1 and M.2, the diagram shows the pattern from the right side. 1st row in M.1A and M.1B = 20 sts. Begin at arrow in bottom right hand corner after 1 edge st and finish at arrow in bottom left hand corner before 1 edge st.


Read the entire pattern before knitting it!

Shawl: Due to number of sts, knit shawl back and forth on a circular needle. Start at the top and knit down and out. Cast on 6 sts on needle size 4.5mm and knit 1 row – NB: knit first and last st (edge sts) on each row in garter stitch and the middle 2 sts on needle in stocking sts until finished measurements. Continue as follows:
1st row (= right side): 1 edge st, increase 1 st by picking up thread between sts and knit this into back of st, knit 1, yarn over needle, knit 2 (middle 2 sts), yarn over needle, knit 1, increase 1 st by picking up thread between sts and knit this into back of st, 1 edge st.
2nd row (= wrong side): Knit, but purl the middle 2 sts (stocking stitch)
3rd row: 1 edge st, increase1 st as described under 1st row, knit and make a yo just before the middle 2 sts, knit these, yo, knit until 1 edge st left on needle, increase 1 st as before, knit edge st.
4th row: as 2nd row
Repeat row 3 and 4 until there are 38 sts on needle. NB: When there’re 38 sts on needle, purl the row from the wrong side. Now purl 1 row from the right side, knit 1 row from wrong side, knit 1 row from right side, at the same time knitting edge sts and middle 2 sts as before and making increases as before = 46 sts.
Now knit M.1 (berry pattern) as follows:
1st row (= wrong side): 1 edge st, M.1A over the next 20 sts, purl 4, M.1B over the next 20 sts, 1 edge st.
Continue like this following M.1A and M.1B, at the same time increasing on each side of the middle 2 sts as before (the increases at edges are incorporated into M.1).
NB: purl the increased sts on each side of the middle 2 sts from the right side and knit them from the wrong side until the sts fit into the pattern, i.e. increase 5 sts on each side before incorporating these into the pattern.

Continue in pattern until shawl measures approx 48 cm mid back. Now knit M.2 once (first row = wrong side), at the same time knitting edge sts as before and increasing each side of the 2 middle sts as before. Additionally, increase 1 st eiach side within the edge sts on every other row by picking up thread between sts and knit this into back of st. After M.2, continue in leaf pattern as follows (knit edge sts as before and make increases each side of the 2 middle sts as before):
1st row (= wrong side): (remember edge st), *K9, P5*, repeat from *-* until the middle 2 sts as long as number of sts are dividable by 14 (when, due to increased sts, there isn’t room for a whole report, K the remaining sts), P the 2 middle sts, and knit leaf pattern mirrored, i.e. equal amount of knitted sts on each side of the 2 middle sts before purling 5. Finish pattern with K9 before edge st.
2nd row (= right side): (remember edge st and increases): Purl until 5 sts before the first 5 sts in stocking stitch, now *yon, K1, yo, P4, K5, P4*, repeat from *-* towards the middle but finish the report with yo, K1, yo after the last P4, and purl until the middle 2 sts (remember increases). After the 2 middle sts, knit pattern mirrored.
3rd row: K over K and P over P (purl yo’s in leaf pattern)
4th row: P until first leaf (leaf = 3 K sts), then *K1, yo, K1, yo, K1, P4, slip 1 st as if to knit, K1, psso, K1, K2 tog, P4*, repeat from *-* towards the middle and finish with K1, yo, K1, yo, K1. Now purl after the last leaf to middle sts. After the 2 middle sts, knit pattern mirrored.
5th row: As 3rd row
6th row: P until first leaf (leaf = 5 K sts), then *K2, yo, K1, yo, K2, P4, slip 1 st as if to knit, K2 tog, psso, P4*, repeat from *-* towards the middle and finish with K2, yo, K1, yo, K2. Nnow purl after the last leaf to middle sts. After the 2 middle sts, knit pattern mirrored.
7th row: K until first leaf, then *P7, K9*, *, repeat from *-* towards the middle. After the 2 middle sts, knit pattern mirrored.
8th row: K over K, P over P
9th row: As 3rd row
10th row: Purl until 5 sts before the outer most leaf (leaf is in stocking sts), *yo, K1, yo, P4, slip 1 st as if to knit, K1, psso, K3, K2 tog, P4*, repeat from *-* towards the middle and finish with yo, K1, yo. Now purl to middle sts. After the 2 middle sts, knit pattern mirrored.
11th row: As 3rd row

Repeat from 4th (inclusive) to 11th (inclusive) row another 3 times. Then knit from 4th (inclusive) to 9th (inclusive) row 1 time. Now finish leaf pattern as follows (from the right side):

1st row: P until outer most leaf, then *slip 1 st as if to knit, K1, psso, K3, K2 tog, P9*, repeat from *-* towards the middle. Purl after the decreases in the last leaf towards the middle. After the 2 middle sts, knit pattern mirrored.
2nd row: K over K and P over P, but inc. as follows in the 9 knitted sts between each leaf: K2, inc. 1 st, K5, inc. 1 st, K2.
3rd row: Knit over all sts, but cast off at each side in each leaf as done for the 4th row in pattern.
4th row: P the 3 leaf sts, K all other sts, but inc. between each leaf as follows: K2, inc. 1 st, K7, inc. 1 st, K2.
5th row: Knit all sts and cast of the 3 leaf sts as done for the 6th row.

Knit 1 row from the wrong side (knit 2 middle sts as before). Knit 1 row from the right side with inc. at sides and in middle as before and then K 1 row form the wrong side (P 2 middle sts). Cast off loosely. To ensure the edge doesn’t become too tight, make a yo after approx every 5th st whilst casting off (cast off yo’s as well).
