GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K sts on all rows.

KNITTING TIP:
After turning, slip the first st. Tighten yarn and continue as before. This is done to avoid holes when turning.

--------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 60 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Delight.
Work in garter st as follows - beg from RS:
K 1 row until 58 sts remain, turn and K back.
K 1 row until 56 sts remain, turn and K back.
K 2 sts in first st, K until 54 sts remain, turn and K back.
K 1 row until 52 sts remain, turn and work back.
K 1 row until 50 sts remain, turn and K back.
K 2 sts in first st, K until 48 sts remain, turn and K back.
Continue with short rows until 2 sts less remain for every turn until 2 rows have been worked over the last 2 sts, K 2 rows over all sts.
AT THE SAME TIME on every 6th row, K 2 sts in first st on row from RS.
When 1 whole repetition has been worked (= 60 rows), 10 sts have been inc = 70 sts.

Work next repetition as follows from RS:
K 1 row until 68 sts remain, turn and K back.
K 1 row until 66 sts remain, turn and K back.
K 2 sts in first st, K until 64 sts remain, turn and K back.
K 1 row until 62 sts remain, turn and K back.
K 1 row until 60 sts remain, turn and K back.
K 2 sts in first st, K until 58 sts remain, turn and K back.
Continue with short rows until 2 sts less remain for every turn until 2 rows have been worked over the last 2 sts, work 2 rows over all sts.
AT THE SAME TIME on every 6th row, work 2 sts in first st on row from RS.
When 1 whole repetition has been worked (= 70 rows), 12 sts have been inc = 82 sts.
Continue the same way upwards, for every repetition worked there are more and more sts in the repetition and the repetition extends over several rows.

Continue until 8 repetitions have been worked – there are now approx. 206 sts on row.
Bind off.
Tighten tog in the middle by pulling a strand of yarn through the inner sts and tighten tog.

CROCHET EDGE:
Work an edge around the entire shawl on hook size 3 mm / C with Delight as follows: 1 sc, * ch 3, 1 dc in 1st ch, skip approx. 1 cm /1/4”, 1 sc *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
