Fold the circular needle double (or use 2 circular needles), cast on sts over 2 needles and pull one of the needles out. This is done to make the cast on edge elastic.

DECREASE TIP (applies to dec in mid of shawl):
All dec are done from RS. Dec 2 sts in the mid of shawl every 4th row as follows: Work until 1 st remain before mid st, slip 2 sts as if to K tog, K 1, pass the slipped sts over.

On the double YOs on 2nd and 4th row, P the first YO and slip the second YO off the needle.

Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts. Worked from the top and down to the tip. Cast on 281 sts on needle size 3 mm with Alpaca - read KNITTING TIP 1. P 1 row from WS. AT THE SAME TIME insert a marker in the middle st on needle (= 140 sts on both sides of mid st).

Then work as follows:
1st row (= RS): * K 2 tog, 2 YO *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain before mid st, K 1, dec 2 sts in the middle - read DECREASE TIP, K 1, * 2 YO, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso *, repeat from *-* the rest of row.

2nd row (= WS): P all sts - read KNITTING TIP 2.

3rd row (= RS): Cast off the first 4 sts on needle with K, * K 2 tog, 2 YO *, repeat from *-* until 3 sts remain before mid st, K 7 (marker is in the middle of these 7 sts), * 2 YO, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso *, repeat from *-* the rest of row.

4th row (= WS): Cast off the first 4 sts with P. P the remaining sts.

5th row (= RS): Work as row 1, but start by casting off 4 K sts in the beg of row.

6th row (WS): Cast off the first 4 sts with P. P the remaining sts.

Repeat 3rd-6th row (= 1 repetition), i.e. work lace pattern on both sides of the middle and dec 2 sts in the middle of the shawl on every 4th row.

After a total of 14 repetitions have been worked = 19 sts remain on needle.
Cast off all sts.
