SHAWL:
Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts. Cast on 3 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm with off white and K 2 rows. Then work as follows:
ROW 1: Work with off white, P 1, 1 loose YO, P all sts.
ROW 2: Switch to turquoise/blue and K all sts - REMEMBER KNITTING TENSION! Do not tighten yarns when changing colour.
ROW 3: Work with turquoise/blue, K 1, 1 loose YO, K all sts.
ROW 4: Switch to off white and K all sts.
Then repeat rows 1 to 4 the same way = 2 rows in stocking st with off white and 1 ridge in turquoise/blue. Work like this until both balls almost have been used. Finish after ROW 2 (= turquoise/blue), and make sure to have enough yarn left for cast off. Piece measures approx. 80 cm measured along needle/short side. Cast off as follows with turquoise/blue to get an elastic edge: * Cast off 2 sts, make a YO and loosely cast off YO *, repeat from *-* the entire row. Cut and fasten the yarn.

SHAPING:
Place the piece in lukewarm water until it is soaking wet. Carefully squeeze out the water - do not twist. Then roll the piece in a towel and squeeze to remove more water - the piece will now only be moist. Place the piece on a carpet or mattress - carefully stretch it out to measurements. Leave to dry. Repeat the process when the garment has been washed.
