NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
PATTERN: See diagrams M.1, M.2 and M.3.
The diagrams show the pattern from the RS.
Fig-1 shows how to work the beg of the shawl.

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

INCREASING TIP: Make all inc from RS. Inc 4 sts on every other row until finished measurements as follows:
Inc 1 st at beg of row as follows: 3 garter st, 1 double YO. On return row P 1 YO and slip the other YO off needle.
Inc 2 sts mid piece as follows: 1 double YO, 1 stocking st (= st with marker), 1 double YO. On return row P 1 YO and slip the other YO off needle each side of st with marker.
Inc 1 st at the end of row as follows: 1 double YO, 3 garter sts. On return row P 1 YO and slip the other YO off needle.
--------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
To fit in all sts work shawl back and forth on circular needle. The piece is worked from the top down mid back. NOTE: Make sure to start a new ball at the beg of row and not mid piece.
Cast on 7 sts on circular needle size 8 mm with Eskimo. Insert a marker in the 4th st (marks the middle). Work first row as follows (= RS): 3 garter sts, 1 double YO, K1, 1 double YO, 3 garter sts = 9 sts. Continue in stocking st with 3 garter sts each side, AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 sts on every other row (= every row from RS) – SEE INCREASING TIP! Continue like this until there are 17 sts on row. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Now continue as follows from RS: 3 garter sts, 1 double YO, M.1 A (= 3 sts), M.1 C (= 2 sts), 1 double YO, K1 (= middle st), 1 double YO, M.1 A, M.1 C and finish with 1 double YO and 3 garter sts. Continue the inc at the sides and mid back - see Fig 1. After 1 vertical repeat of M.1 (= 37 sts) continue as follows: 3 garter sts, 1 double YO, M.1 A (= 3 sts), M.1 B on the next 10 sts, M.1 C (= 2 sts), 1 double YO, K1 (= middle st), 1 double YO, M.1 A, M.1 B on the next 10 sts, M.1 C, 1 double YO, 3 garter sts. Continue in pattern like this, but for every vertical repeat of M.1 work 1 extra repeat of M.1 B on each side of the middle. When piece measures 70 cm, adjust to a full repeat of M.1, continue in stocking st on all sts until piece measures 75 cm (continue the inc at the sides and mid back), then work M.2 on all sts – incorporate the inc sts in pattern as you go along. Cast off loosely.

CROCHET BORDER:
Crochet a border along cast off row (crochet along one short side towards the point and up along the other short side) as follows with crochet hook size 8 mm: M.3 A, then repeat M.3 B and finish with M.3 C. Make sure to have a full repeat of M.3 B on both sides of point. Cut the thread and fasten.
