Pattern: See diagram M.1 to M.5 and X.1 to X.4. The diagram is seen from the RS.

Garter st, back and forth on needle: K all rows

Increasing tip: Make all inc from RS. Inc 4 sts on every other row as follows:
Inc at beg of row: Work 3 garter sts, K1, 1 YO, K1. On return row from WS work these sts as follows: P3, 3 garter sts.
Inc as follows mid back: Beg 2 sts before marking thread (= MT), K1, 1 YO, K1 (= st with MT), 1 YO, K1. On return row from WS P these 5 sts.
Inc as follows at the end of row: beg 5 sts before the end of row: K1, 1 YO, K1, 3 garter sts. On return row from WS work these sts as follows: 3 garter sts, P3.

Leaf pattern:
Row 1(= WS): *K5, P5*, repeat from *-* and finish with K5
Row 2: (= RS): P2, * 1YO, K1, 1 YO, P2, K5, P2*, repeat from *-* until 3 sts left on row, work these as follows: 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, P2.
Row 3-5-8-9-11-13-16 and 17: Work K over K and P over P. P all YO.
Row 4: P2, *K1, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K1, P2, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, K1, K2 tog, P2*, repeat from *-* until 5 sts left on row, work these as follows: K1, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K1, P2
Row 6: P2, *K2, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K2, P2, slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso, P2*, repeat from *-* until 7 sts left on row, work these as follows: K2, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K2, P2
Row 7: K2, *P7, K5*, repeat from *-* until 9 sts left on row, work these as follows: P7, K2.
Row 10: P2, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, P2, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, K3, K2 tog, P2, *1 YO, K1, 1YO, P2, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, K3, K2 tog, P2*, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, P2.
Row 12: P2, K1, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K1, P2, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, K1, K2 tog, P2, *K1, 1 YO, K1, 1YO, K1, P2, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, K1, K2 tog, P2*, repeat from *-* and finish with K1, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K1, P2.

Row 15: K5, *P7, K5*, repeat from *-*
Row 18: P5, *slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, K3, K2 tog, P5*, repeat from *-*.
Row 19: Work K over K and P over P. At the same time inc 2 sts between each leaf, i.e. in the 5 K sts as follows (inc by picking up st from previous row): K1, inc 1 st, K3, inc 1 st, K1.
Row 20: Work sts on each leaf as follows: slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, K1, K2 tog. P all other sts.
Row 21: P the 3 sts on each leaf, K remaining sts, at the same time inc as follows between each leaf: K1, inc 1 st, K5, Inc 1 st, K1.
Row 22: Work 3 sts on leaf as follows: slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso, P all other sts.

Shawl: Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 3 sts on needle size 3 mm. Insert a Marking Thread (MT) in the second st (marks the middle of shawl). Work first row (= RS) as follows: K1, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K1 = 5 sts (work YO into back of loop on return row). Continue in garter st, at the same time inc 4 sts on every other row as follows: Work 2 sts in the last but one st each side and make 1 YO on both sides of st with MT. Continue like this until there are 29 sts on row. Now continue as follows:
X.1, M.1A (= 4 sts), M.1C (= 5 sts), X.2, 1 stocking st (= st with MT), X.3, M.1A (= 4 sts), M.1C (= 5 sts), X.4. After 1 vertical repeat of pattern there are 45 sts on row. Continue as follows: X.1, M.1A, M.1B (= 8 sts) repeated until 6 sts (this number of sts varies according to row number in X.2) remain before st with MT, work these sts as follows: M.1C, X,2, then work 1 stocking st (= st with MT), X.3, M.1A, M1.B repeated until 9 sts (this number of sts varies according to row number in X.4) remain, work these sts as follows: M.1C, X.4.
Continue like this until you have worked 18 vertical repeats of M.1 = 317 sts on row. K 1 row from RS and P 1 row from WS. At the same time inc each side and mid back on every other row – see Increasing tip – until finished measurements.
Continue in M.2. After 1 vertical repeat of M.2 there are 333 sts on row. K 1 row from RS, at the same time inc 8 sts evenly (in addition to inc at sides and mid back). P 1 row from WS, P 1 row from RS and K 1 row from WS. There are now 349 sts on row. Work next row as follows: 5 sts at side with inc as before, *K2 tog, 1 YO*, repeat from *-* until 3 sts before mid back, work these with inc as before, 1 YO, repeat from *-* until 7 sts remain, work these K2 tog and 5 sts with inc as before. K 1 row from WS, at the same time inc 2 sts evenly (in addition to inc at sides and mid back) = 355 sts on row. Continue as follows: 5 sts at side with inc as before, M.3 (= 9 sts) repeated on the next 171 sts, 3 sts mid back with inc as before, M.3 on the next 171 sts and 5 sts at side with inc as before. NB! Work inc sts at side and mid back in stocking st until M.3 is completed. After 1 vertical repeat of M.3 there are 379 sts on row. K 1 row from WS, at the same time inc 2 sts evenly (in addition to inc at sides and mid back) = 381 sts. Continue as follows: 5 sts at side with inc as before, * K2 tog, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* until 3 sts mid back, work these with inc as before, 1 YO, repeat from *-* until 7 sts remains, work these: K2 tog and 5 sts with inc as before. K 1 row from WS, P 1 row from RS at the same time inc 14 sts evenly (in addition to inc at sides and mid back) = 403 sts on row. Continue as follows: 5 sts at side with inc as before, Leaf pattern – see above – on the next 195 sts, 3 sts mid back with inc as before, Leaf pattern on the next 195 sts and 5 sts at side with inc as before. Note! Work inc sts at side and mid back in reverse stocking st until row 10 in Leaf pattern.
Now continue as follows: 5 sts at side with inc as before, Leaf pattern from row 10 – see above – on the next 198 sts, 3 sts mid back with inc as before, Leaf pattern on the next 198 sts and 5 sts at side with inc as before. NB! Work inc sts at side and mid back in reverse stocking st. After Leaf pattern is complete (= 22 rows) there are 455 sts on row. K 1 row from WS, at the same time dec 2 sts evenly = 453. P 1 row from RS and K 1 row from WS. There are now 457 sts on row.
Continue as follows: 5 sts at side with inc as before, * K2 tog, 1 YO, repeat from *-* until 3 sts mid back, work these with inc as before, 1 YO, repeat from *-* until 7 sts remains, work these: K2 tog and 5 sts with inc as before. K 1 row from WS, at the same time inc 2 sts evenly (in addition to inc at sides and mid back)= 463 sts on row.
Continue as follows: 5 sts at side with inc as before, M.3 (= 9 sts) repeated on the next 225 sts, 3 sts mid back with inc as before, M.3 on the next 225 sts and 5 sts at side with inc as before. NB! Work inc sts at side and mid back in stocking st until M.3 is completed. After 1 vertical repeat of M.3 there are 487 sts on row. K 1 row from WS, at the same time inc 2 sts evenly (in addition to inc at sides and mid back) = 489 sts.
Continue as follows: 5 sts at side with inc as before, * K2 tog, 1 YO, repeat from *-* until 3 sts mid back, work these with inc as before, 1 YO, repeat from *-* until 7 sts remains, work these: K2 tog and 5 sts with inc as before. K 1 row from WS, K 1 row from RS, P 1 row from WS. There are now 497 sts on row.
Now continue in M.2 (inc at sides and mid back as before). After 1 vertical repeat of M.2 there are 509 sts on row. K 1 row from RS, at the same time inc 10 sts evenly (in addition to inc at sides and mid back) = 523 sts on row. P 1 row from WS.
Continue as follows: 5 sts at side with inc as before, M.4 (= 17 sts) repeated on the next 255 sts, 3 sts mid back with inc as before, M.4 on the next 255 sts and 5 sts at side with inc as before. NB! Work inc sts at side and mid back in stocking st until M.4 is completed. After 1 vertical repeat of M.4 there are 599 sts on row. P 1 row from WS, K 1 row from RS and P 1 row from WS. There are now 603 sts on row.
Continue as follows: 5 sts at side with inc as before, K3, M.5 on the next 289 sts, K3, 3 sts mid back with inc as before, K3, M.5 on the next 289 sts K3 and 5 sts at side with inc as before. NB! Work inc sts at side and mid back in stocking st until M.5 is completed. After 1 vertical repeat of M.5 there are 771 sts on row. K 1 row from WS, K 1 row from RS and cast off loosely.
