Pattern instructions

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.
See diagrams M.1 and M.2. Diagrams show pattern from RS.

It is very important to cast on and cast off loosely so that the edges can be blocked and shaped into small tips when the shawl is finished.

Cast on 87 sts on 2 circular needles size 3.5 mm with Lace. Pull out one of the needles and work first row as follows from RS: Diagram M.1A (= 7 sts), diagram M.1B over the next 70 sts, finish with diagram M.1C (= 10 sts). When diagram M.1 has been worked one time vertically, continue with diagram M.2 (instead of diagram M.1) the same way until piece measures approx. 148 cm (or desired length). Work the last 2 rows in diagram M.2 A, B and C one more time, then cast off very LOOSELY.

Place the shawl in lukewarm water until it is soaking wet. Carefully squeeze the water out of the shawl - do not twist the shawl - then roll the shawl in a towel and squeeze to remove more water - the shawl will now only be moist.
Place the shawl on a carpet or mattress - carefully stretch it out to size and fasten it with pins. NOTE: Insert a pin in every repetition along the short sides where 3 sts were worked tog and 1 pin in each corner (= 10 pins in each side). Lightly pull at every pin so that the edge is shaped into small tips. Leave to dry. Repeat the process when the garment has been washed.
