Pattern for DROPS 131-20


Inc by working the 2 threads from 1 st separately. I.e. 1 st in 2 threads becomes 2 sts in 1 thread (no sts doubles to 90).

Dec 1 st as follows:
Before marker: Work until 2 sts remain before marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
After marker: K 2 tog.

Worked in the round on circular needle and double pointed needles. Cast on 45 sts on circular needle size 6 mm with 2 threads Andes. Work in stocking st until piece measures 6 cm. Switch to 1 thread while AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st in every st - see INCREASE above = 90 sts on needle. Continue in stocking st. When piece measures 16 cm, insert 5 markers in the piece as follows: Insert 1st marker at the beg of the round. Then insert 4 markers 18 sts apart = 5 markers. Then continue in stocking st while AT THE SAME TIME dec on every cm as follows: Dec 1 st on each side of every marker a total of 8 times - see DECREASE TIP = 10 sts remain. Pull thread through the last 10 sts and tighten tog.



To make the edge look nice work as follows: Slip 1st st on every row.

Cast on 3 sts on needle size 8 mm with Andes. Read KNITTING TIP. Work in stocking st while at the same time inc on every other row as follows: 1 st at beg of every row from RS - inc by working 1 YO inside 1 edge st, P YO twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front) on next row to avoid holes. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 75 cm, the shawl is half finished.
Work 2 rows without inc. Now dec in the same side as inc by working the first 3 sts as follows: 1 edge st, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso. Continue like this until 3 sts remain. Cast off.
