INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.
----------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
The shawl is worked top down. Work back and forth on circular needle so that you have room for all the stitches.

Cast on 7 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm and peach pink.
Work as follows from the right side: Knit 1 stitch, * 1 yarn over, knit1 stitch *, repeat from *-* a total of 6 times = 13 stitches. Knit 1 row from the wrong side. Now insert 6 marker threads in the piece without working the stitches, the marker threads are inserted in the stitches and follow your work upwards. Insert the marker threads in the following stitches: Stitch 2, stitch 4, stitch 6, stitch 8, stitch 10 and stitch 12.

Then work and increase as follows:
Knit 1 row and increase by making a yarn over before each stitch with a marker thread = 6 yarn overs.
NOTE! All yarn overs are then knitted to leave holes.
Knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side (without increasing) and knit 1 row from the wrong side = 19 stitches.
Knit 1 row and increase by making a yarn over after each stitch with a marker thread = 6 yarn overs.
Knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side (without increasing) and knit 1 row from the wrong side = 25 stitches.
Knit 1 row and increase by making a yarn over before each stitch with a marker thread = 6 yarn overs.
Knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side (without increasing) and knit 1 row from the wrong side = 31 stitches.
Knit 1 row and increase by making a yarn over after each stitch with a marker thread = 6 yarn overs.
Knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side (without increasing) and knit 1 row from the wrong side = 37 stitches.

Continue with the same increases, but in addition, you will work short rows. Work as follows:
ROW 1 with short row (= right side): Knit 2 stitches, 1 yarn over and knit to first stitch with a marker thread on this row, turn and knit back from the wrong side. Then knit 1 row from the right side where you increase before/after the marker thread stitches.
ROW 2 with short row (= wrong side): Knit 2 stitches, 1 yarn over and knit to first stitch with a marker thread on this row, turn and knit back from the right side. Then knit 1 row from the wrong side = a total of 8 stitches increased on rows 1-2.
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Knit.

Continue by repeating rows 1-4 (increase alternately before and after the marker thread stitches as before) until the piece measures approx. 35 cm (rows 1-4 have been worked a total of 30 times) and there are 277 stitches on the needle.

Now work stripes with off white and peach pink as follows: * Change to off white and work rows 1 and 2 (with short rows). Change to peach pink and work rows 3 and 4 *. Repeat from *-* until the piece measures approx. 51 cm (rows 1-4 are worked with stripes a total of 16 times) and there are 405 stitches on the needle.
From here, work with off white to finished length.
Repeat rows 1-2 one more time = 413 stitches on needle.
Work 1 RIDGE - see description above, and increase 10 stitches evenly on the first row of these ridges as follows: Knit 22 stitches, * 1 yarn over, knit 41 stitches *, repeat from *-* a total of 9 times and make 1 yarn over and knit 22 stitches. Knit 1 row where all yarn overs are knitted twisted = 423 stitches (the number of stitches is divisible by 22 + 5 stitches).

Now continue working according to diagram A.1 with off white and stocking stitch. (Row 1 = right side): Work 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, work A.1 over the next 418 stitches (= 19 times in width and there are 3 stitches left on the row), work 1 stitch stocking stitch and 2 edge stitches in garter stitch. Work the diagram like this 1 time in height. The piece measures approx. 63 cm and there are 537 stitches on the needle.

CASTING OFF:
On the next row from the right side, you will cast off with i-cord casting off. It is important that the edge is cast off loosely so that the shawl has a nice shape and hangs neatly. You can use a larger needle size to cast off if necessary and make sure that all stitches are loose.
Work and cast off as follows: * Knit 2 stitches, the next 2 stitches are knitted twisted together. Push the 3 stitches from the right needle back onto the left needle (in the same order) *, repeat from *-* until all stitches on the left needle have been cast off and there are 3 stitches left on the right needle.
Push the stitches onto the left needle and cast them off with knit. Cut the strand and sew together the cast-off from the last 3 stitches so that the end of the shawl is neat. Fasten all loose strands.
