The shawl beg with off white at the top and gradually becomes darker when working.
The piece is worked back and forth on circular needle because of no of sts.
Cast on 7 sts on circular needle size 8 mm / US 11 with 2 strands off white and work tinted stripes with dropped sts - AT THE SAME TIME inc as follows:
Row 1 (= RS): K all sts.
Row 2 (= WS): K 1, * P 1, 1 YO, P 1 *, repeat from *-* 2 times in total and finish with P 1, 1 YO and K 1 = 10 sts.
Row 3 (and every row from RS): K all sts - NOTE: K YOs from previous row twisted to avoid holes.
Row 4 (= WS): K 1, * 1 YO, P 1 *, repeat from *-* 8 times in total and finish with 1 YO and K 1 = 19 sts.
Row 6 (= WS): K 1, P until 1 st remains, K 1.
Row 8 (= WS): K 1, * P 1, 1 YO, P 1 *, repeat from *-* 8 times in total and finish with P 1, 1 YO and K 1 = 28 sts.
