Not sure which size you should choose? Then it might help you to know that the model in the picture is approx. 5 ft 7 in and uses size S or M. If you are making a sweater, cardigan, dress or similar garment, you will find a graphic with the measurements of the finished garment (in cm) at the bottom of the pattern.

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

See diagrams A.1-A.9. Diagrams show all rows in pattern from RS.

All inc are done from RS. Work YOs as sts on next row (not twisted) to make holes. Inc 4 sts on every other row as follows:
Inc 1 st at beg of row as follows: 1 st in garter st, 1 YO.
Inc 2 sts in the middle of piece as follows: 1 YO, 1 st in stockinette st (= st with marker), 1 YO.
Inc 1 st at end of row as follows: 1 YO, 1 st in garter st.

Worked back and worth on circular needle from neck and down with 1 st in GARTER ST - see explanation above - in each side. Cast on 3 sts on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 with Kid-Silk. K 6 rows. After 6th row do not turn piece but rotate 90 degrees clockwise, pick up 3 sts along the edge (i.e. 1 st in every ridge), rotate piece again clockwise and pick up 3 sts along cast-on edge (i.e. 1 st in every st) = 9 sts on needle.
Insert 1 marker in the 5th st (st marks the middle of the shawl).
Then continue in stockinette st with 1 st in garter st in each side while AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 sts on every row from RS - Read INCREASE TIP! Continue like this until there are 29 sts on the needle. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
Then work as follows from RS: 1 st in garter st, A.3 (= 2 sts), A.2 (= 6 sts), A.1 (= 5 sts), 1 st in stockinette st (= mid st, worked in stockinette st until finished measurements), A.3, A.2, A.1 and finish with 1 st in garter st. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically (= 24 rows), there are 101 sts on needle.

Continue pattern like this – NOTE: Every time A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 6 repetitions more of A.2 on each side of mid st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
Work a total of 7 repetitions of A.2 (piece measures approx. 58 cm / 22 3/4’’ measured along mid st) = 533 sts on needle - AT THE SAME TIME on the last row of the A.1, A.2, A.3 (=purl row) increase 6 sts evenly on each side of the mid st (= total of 12 sts) to a totalt of 545 sts.

Work next row from RS as follows: 1 st in garter st, A.9 (= 5 sts) and then A.8 (= 12 sts) until 2 sts remain before mid st, work A.7 (= 2 sts), 1 st in stockinette st, A.6 (= 2 sts), repeat A.5 (= 12 sts) until 6 sts remain, work A.4 (= 5 sts) and finish with 1 st in garter st.
Work 1 repetition of pattern vertically. LOOSELY bind off.


= K from RS, P from WS
= 1 YO between 2 sts
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso.
= K 2 tog
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso
= bobble - work follows from RS: K 1, 1 YO, K 1 in same st (= 3 sts), turn piece, work 4 rows in stockinette st over these 3 sts. Then pass 2nd st on right needle over 1st st and then pass 3rd st over 1st st (= 1 st remains)
