GARTER ST (back and forth):

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

SHAWL:
Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts. Work from tip and up in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Cast on 2 sts on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with light gray. Then work as follows:
ROW 1 (= RS): K 1, 1 YO (= 1 st inc), K the rest of row.
ROW 2 (= WS): K 1, 1 YO (= 1 st inc), K the rest of row.
ROW 3: K 1, 1 YO (= 1 st inc), K 1, 1 YO (= 1 st inc), K the rest of row (= 2 sts inc in total).
ROW 4: K 1, 1 YO (= 1 st inc), K 1, 1 YO (= 1 st inc), K the rest of row (= 2 sts inc in total).

REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE Repeat 1st to 4th row until piece measures 6 cm / 2 3/8'', adjust so that next row is from WS. Now work short rows as follows:

SECTION 1:
Continue to inc as before, but in this section inc only in left side of piece (= in beg of row from WS). Work short rows as follows:
ROW 1 (= WS): K until 6 sts remain, turn piece (these sts are no longer worked).
ROW 2 (= RS): K back.
ROW 3: K until 12 sts remain (includes the first 6 sts), turn piece (these sts are no longer worked).
ROW 4: K back.
Continue like this, i.e. work over 6 sts less every other row and inc as before in left side of piece, until 6 sts remain or less on row (last row is from RS). Work 1 row over all sts from WS and inc as before.

SECTION 2:
Switch color to heather. Continue to inc as before, but in this section inc only in right side of piece (= in beg of row from RS). Work short rows as follows:
ROW 1 (= RS): K the first 6 sts, turn piece.
ROW 2 (= WS): K back.
ROW 3: K over 6 sts more than on 1st row, turn piece (i.e. sts inc on 1st row are not counted).
ROW 4: Work back.
Continue like this, i.e. work 6 more sts every other row until
1 ridge has been worked over all sts (last row is from WS).

SECTION 3:
Switch color to gray. K 1 row from RS. Work as SECTION 1.

SECTION 4:
Switch color to off white. Work as SECTION 2.

SECTION 5:
Switch to light gray. K 1 row from RS. Work as SECTION 1.

SECTION 6:
Switch color to heather. Work as SECTION 2.

SECTION 7:
Switch color to off white. K 1 row from RS. Work as SECTION 1.

SECTION 8:
Switch color to gray. Work as SECTION 2.

Bind off as follows: * bind off 5 sts, 1 YO and bind off YO *, repeat from *-* until all sts have been bound off.
