Garter st, back and forth on needle: K all rows

Pattern: See diagram M.1 and M.2 A/B. The diagram shows the pattern from the RS side.

Shawl: Knitted back and forth on circular needle from bottom up. Cast on 3 sts on needle size 3.5 mm with Fabel and work 1 vertical repeat of M.1 (first row = WS) = 15 sts. Now work M.2-A at beg of row and M.2-B at the end of row (work sts in between in garter st). Remember the knitting tension! After 14 vertical repeats of M.2-A/B there are 295 sts on row. Now work 1 vertical repeat of M.2-A/B, but do not work the last 2 rows in diagram = 331 sts. Work 2 rows garter st on all sts. Change to Alpaca and work 4 rows garter st on all sts. Cast off loosely.

Crochet border: Crochet a border along top edge of shawl (casting off row) with crochet hook size 3 mm and Alpaca as follows:
Row 1: 1 dc in corner st, *2 ch (= 1 ch-loop), skip 2 sts, 1 dc in next st*, repeat from *-*.
Round 2: Crochet with double thread Alpaca. 1 dc in first ch-loop, *3 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop*, repeat from *-*. At the same time after approx 27 cm, crochet a buttonhole by crocheting 5 ch instead of 3 ch and repeat after another 8 cm.
Button covers: Crochet 2 covers with crochet hook size 3 mm and Alpaca as follows:
2 ch, then 6 dc in the first ch, finish with 1 sl st in the first dc (= round 1).
Round 2: 2 dc in each dc = 12 dc.
Round 3: *1 dc in first dc, 1 dc in second dc, 2 dc in third dc*, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round = 16 dc.
Round 4, 5 and 6: 1 dc in each dc.
Round 7: 1 dc in every other dc and finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round = 8 dc.

Put buttons inside cover, sew round the edge of cover and tighten thread. Fold shawl double and sew on buttons approx 6 cm from crochet border to fit buttonholes.
