Gauge: 6 sts x 11 rows on needles size 15 and pattern knitting = 10 x 10 cm.

Shawl: Cast on 3 sts on circular needles size 15 with plum. Knit back and forth up circular needles as follows:

round 1: K 1, yo, K 1, yo, K 1 = 5 sts.

round 2: K 1, P 1, yo, P 2 tog, yo, K 1 = 6 sts.

round 3: K 1, yo, K 2 tog, yo, K 2 tog, yo, K 1 = 7 sts.

round 4: K 1, yo, P 2 tog, yo, P 2 tog, yo, P 1, K 1 = 8 sts.

round 5: K 2, yo, K 2 tog, yo, K 2 tog, yo, 2 sts of garter st = 9 sts.

round 6: K 1, P 1, yo, P 2 tog, yo, P 2 tog, yo, P 2 tog, yo, K 1 = 10 sts.

round 7: K 1, yo, * K 2 tog, yo *, repeat from *-* until 1 st remains on the needles, knit this st as garter st = 11 sts.

round 8: K 1, yo, * P 2 tog, yo *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain on the needles, P 1, K 1 = 12 sts.

round 9: K 2, yo, * K 2 tog, yo *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain on the needles, knit these as garter st = 13 sts.

round 10: K 1, P 1, yo, * P 2 tog, yo *, repeat *-* until 1 st remains on the needles, knit this st as garter st = 14 sts.

Repeat rounds 7 to 10 upwards. With this pattern 1 st is increased every row. When there are 120 sts on the needles (or when the desired measurements have been reached) bind off with double yarn.

Fringes: Attach fringes along both diagonal edges of the shawl with 5-cm intervals. 1 fringe = 2 strands 25 cm in length - pull the doubled strands through 1 edge st and draw the ends through the loop («eye»). Tie a knot outermost in each end of the yarn so that the strands do not divide apart.
