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

See diagrams A.1 to A.4. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

Work mid st in stocking st on all rows with stocking st in diagram, but on rows in diagram that are worked K from WS work mid st also like this.

1 stripe = 2 rows. First row is from RS.
* Work 2 rows with lilac/green, work 2 rows with green/beige *, repeat from *-*.

Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts. The shawl is worked from neckline mid back and down.
Work in STRIPES - see explanation above.
Cast on 7 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with lilac/green. Insert 1 marker in the 4th st (= mid st) and move it upwards when working. Work diagram A.1 as follows: Work 2 edge sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above, A.1 over 1 st, 1 st in stocking st, A.1 over 1 st and 2 edge sts in garter st = 11 sts. Continue with A.1 on each side of mid st (work mid st in stocking st in entire A.1), when diagram has been worked, 1 time vertically, there are 43 sts on row (i.e. 21 sts on each side of mid st). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION
Work according to diagram A.2-A.4 as follows: 2 edge sts in garter st, A.2 over 1 st, A.3 over 17 sts, A.4 over 1 st, K 1 (= MID ST - see explanation above), A.2 over 1 st, A.3 over 17 sts, A.4 over 1 st and 2 edge sts in garter st. When diagrams have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 111 sts on needle (i.e. there are 55 sts on each side of mid st) and there is now room for 1 more repetition of A.3 on each side of A.3 on each side of shawl. Continue to work according to A.2-A.4 until diagrams have been worked 8 times in total vertically. There are now 587 sts on needle (i.e. 293 sts on each side of mid st). Loosely cast off as follows: * Cast off 3 sts, 1 YO, cast off YO *, repeat from *-* the rest of row.


= K from RS, P from WS
= K from WS
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso
= K 2 tog
= 1 double YO between 2 sts, drop one YO off on next row
= 1 YO between 2 sts, work YO twisted on next row
= 1 YO between 2 sts, K YO on next row
