Work entire shawl in GARTER ST - see explanation above, with picot edge along one side. Worked back and forth on circular needle from side to side.

Cast on 6 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Cotton Merino. K 1 row from WS. Insert 1 marker after the first 2 sts on row (seen from RS) = 4 sts after marker for picot edge. Then work as follows:
Row 1 (= RS): K 1, inc 1 st – READ INCREASE TIP, K 1, marker, work PICOT EDGE – see explanation above.
Row 2 (= WS): Work picot edge until marker, K the rest of row (K YO twisted).
Row 3: K until marker, work picot edge.
Row 4: Work picot edge until marker, K the rest of row.
Row 5: K until 1 st remains before marker, inc 1 st, K 1, work picot edge.
Row 6: Work picot edge until marker, K the rest of row (K YO twisted).

* Work SHORT ROWS - see explanation above (= 16 rows in total - NOTE: Continue inc before picot edge as before every 4th row). After short rows work 6 ridges back and forth over all sts with picot edge as before *, repeat from *-* 4 more times. There are now 70 sts on row and piece measures approx. 45 cm / 17 3/4'' (measures at beg of row seen from RS). Insert a marker at beg of row (seen from RS).

Inc are now done. Continue as follows from RS: * Work short rows (= 16 rows in total), work 6 ridges back and forth over all sts with picot edge as before *, repeat from *-* 14 more times, then work 1 repetition more with short rows (= 16 rows). Piece measures 50 cm / 19 3/4'' from marker and approx. 95 cm / 37½'' cast-on edge.

Now dec beg. Work as follows: * Work 6 ridges back and forth over all sts with picot edge as before but now dec 1 st every 4th row (i.e. every other row from RS) – READ DECREASE TIP. After the 6 ridges work short rows (continue dec before picot edge as before every 4th row) *, repeat from *-* 4 more times = 35 sts remain on needle and piece measures approx. 112 cm / 44'' from cast-on edge.

Then work as follows:
Row 1 (= RS): K until 2 st remains before marker, dec 1 st, work picot edge.
Row 2 (= WS): Work picot edge until marker, K the rest of row.
