Knitting tension: 15 sts x 28 rows in stocking stitch = 10 x 10 cm

Garter stitch: knit all rows

Border: See M.1

Measurement tips (applies to border): measure border against the shawl to make sure it’s the right length.

Shawl: The shawl is knitted in garter stitch. The border is knitted separately and sewn on afterwards.
Loosely cast on 8 sts using needle size 6 and 1 thread of each yarn quality (double thread). Knit 6 rows garter st. Continue in garter st and inc 1 st each side on every other row by making a yo within the 3 outermost sts. When piece measures approx 66 cm – measure flat – knit 2 rows garter st without increasing (there are approx 186 sts on row) and cast off loosely.

Border: Cast on 9 sts using both needles with 1 thread of each yarn quality (double thread). Remove 1 needle and knit M.1. Note that a blank square in diagram = garter st. When border measures approx 2 m – see measurement tips – cast off very loosely.

Assembly: Place shawl flat on table. Attach border with pins, start at the top of both sides and work down towards the point. When approx 10 cm left both sides of the point, insert a drawing thread in border and draw the border together so that it fits round the point. Sew the border to the shawl with small stitches in the outer loops of the outermost sts.
