Knitting tension: 8 sts on needle size 9 in pattern = width 10 cm

Garter sts: Knit all rows
Pattern: See Diagram M.1.

Shawl: Cast on 39 sts using 2 needles size 9(to ensure the edge becomes elastic). Remove 1 needle and knit 2 rows garter sts. Knit next row as follows: 1 garter st, M.1A (= 5 sts), M.1B twice, M.1C (8 sts), 1 garter st. Continue pattern like this. NB! Note that a blank window in the diagram represents garter sts, i.e. knit garter sts on all rows and not stocking sts. When piece measures approx 110 cm - adjust after a full repeat - knit 2 rows garter sts and cast off loosely (to ensure the edge doesn't become too tight, make a yo every 5th st whilst casting off - knit and cast off yo's as sts.

Crochet border: Using crochet hook size 10 and Vivaldi crochet a border round all edges as follows: 1 dc in first st, *7 ch, skip approx 2 sts/rows, 1 dc in next st*, repeat from *-* and finish with 7 ch and 1 sl st in the first dc from beginning of round.
