See diagram M.1. The diagram shows all rows in the pattern seen from RS.
The shawl is worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts. Cast on 17 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with Delight.
P 1 row from WS while AT THE SAME TIME working STRIPES - see explanation above.
Continue to work as follows (1st row = from RS):
Diagram M.1 is repeated 8 times and finish with 1 st in stocking st (K from RS, P from WS).

Work M.1 as follows:
Row 1 (RS): *K1, yo, K1, yo, place marker *, repeat *-* and end row with 1 st in stocking st. There are now 8 markers, one after each repeat of diagram M.1.
Row 2 and all rows from WS: P all sts and yo's.
Row 3: *K1, yo, K3, yo*, repeat *-* and end row with 1 st in stocking st.
Row 5: * K2 in 1 st, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, K2 tog, K2 in 1 st* repeat *-* and end row with 1 st in stocking st.
Row 7: *K2 in 1 st, yo, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, K2 tog, yo, K2 in 1 st* repeat *-* and end row with 1 st in stocking st.
Continue the 8 repeats of diagram M.1 and 1 st in stocking st at the end of row.

Continue like this until diagram M.1 has been worked 1 time vertically = 129 sts.
Now continue by repeating M.1B vertically.
Continue until piece reaches desired length, finish after a 2nd row in diagram M.1B (i.e. the row with the YOs).
K 1 row from WS.
Cast off with K from RS.
Sew a thread through the 17 sts in the cast on edge, tighten tog and fasten.


= K from RS, P from WS
= 1 YO between 2 sts
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso
= K 2 tog
= K 2 sts in 1 st
