KNITTING INFO:
The entire shawl is worked in garter st, i.e. K back and forth on all rows. At the same time work stripes as follows: * K 2 rows with Delight pink/purple, K 2 rows with Fabel sea mist *, repeat from *-* until finished measurements. NOTE: Make sure that the edge with color change is not too tight.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by working 2 sts in the same st (i.e. front and back loop of st).
Inc 6 sts on row as follows: Work 2 sts in 1st st, * work until next marker, work 2 sts in next st (i.e. in st after marker) *, repeat from *-* 1 time, ** work until 1 st before next marker, work 2 sts in this st (i.e. in st before marker) **, repeat from **-** 1 time, work until 1 st remains on row, work 2 sts in last st = 6 inc.

SHAWL:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid back and down. Cast on 3 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with Delight pink/purple - READ KNITTING INFO.
Row 1 (= RS): K 2 sts in every st (i.e. in front and back loop of every st) = 6 sts.
Row 2 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 3: Switch to Fabel sea mist and K 2 sts in every st = 12 sts.
Row 4: K all sts. Insert 1 marker after 2nd st, 1 marker after 4th st, 1 marker before 9th st, 1 marker before 11th st = 4 markers in total with 4 sts in the middle. NOTE! Move the markers upwards when working.
Row 5: Switch Delight pink/purple, K while AT THE SAME TIME inc 6 sts on row - READ INCREASE TIP = 18 sts.
Row 6-8: K all sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE AND COLOR CHANGE EVERY OTHER ROW!
Repeat row 5 to 8 - i.e. inc with 6 sts every 4 rows - until piece measures approx. 40 cm / 15 3/4'' vertically mid back. Loosely bind off all sts.

BLOCKING:
Place the shawl in lukewarm water until it is soaking wet. Gently squeeze the water out - do not twist. 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. Leave to dry.
