KNITTING TENSION:
This garment is to be soaked and blocked/stretched to size afterwards so the knitting tension is not that important. But to get a sense of whether you are working too loose/tight, work a test on needle size 3.5 mm in stocking st and get approx. 23 sts x 30 rows = 10 x 10 cm.

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc with YO, YO should not be twisted on next row but should make a hole in the piece.
----------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 63 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Lace, insert 2 markers in the piece on each side of the middle 57 sts. Continue in stocking st with 1 edge st in GARTER ST - READ EXPLANATION ABOVE in each side of piece - AT THE SAME TIME inc as follows - READ INCREASE TIP ABOVE:
Inc 1 st in each side inside 1 edge st on every row and inc 1 st on each side of the middle 57 sts every other row. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue like this until inc have been done 46 times in total on each side of the 57 sts and 92 times in each side = 339 sts on needle.
NOTE! Adjust so that last row is from RS. On next row from WS inc 1 st inside edge st in each side = 341 sts.
Piece now measures approx. 30 cm mid back.
Then work PATTERN - READ EXPLANATION ABOVE! according to diagrams A.1 to A.3, beg from RS as follows: Work 1 edge st in garter st, A.1 (= 6 sts), A.2 until 4 sts remain on needle, then work diagram A.3 and finish with 1 edge st in garter st. Work diagram 4 times vertically in total. Then work diagrams A.4 to A.6 the same way. After last row in diagram P 1 row from WS before loosely casting off with K from RS. Cast off with a YO for every YO from last row in diagram to make the edge extra elastic and easy to stretch and shape. Piece measures approx. 50 cm vertically.

BLOCKING:
Place the shawl in lukewarm water until it is soaking wet. Carefully squeeze out the water from the shawl - do not twist. Then roll the shawl in a towel and squeeze to remove more water - the piece will now only be moist. Place the shawl on a carpet or mattress - carefully stretch it out to measurements. On this shawl tips can be made in the bottom edge by stretching a little extra where 2 K sts are (diagram A.5). Also stretch the edge st in each side at the bottom of edge, fasten pins in each tip and along the other edges. Leave shawl to dry. Repeat the process when the garment has been washed.
