GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

* Knit 2 rows with Kid-Silk, knit 2 rows with Delight *, repeat from *-* until finished measurements.


Work piece back and forth on circular needle. The entire shawl is worked in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above.
Cast on 4 stitches on circular needle size 4 mm with Delight.
ROW 1 (= wrong side): Knit all stitches.
ROW 2 (= right side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 2, insert 1 marker thread before next stitch and move it upwards when working, 1 yarn over, knit 1 = 6 stitches.
ROW 3 (= wrong side): Knit all stitches, knit yarn overs from previous row twisted to avoid holes.

Then work according to diagram while working STRIPES - see explanation above. Switch to Kid-Silk and begin from right side as follows: Work A.1 over 4 stitches (marker thread is after the last of these 4 stitches), work A.2 over 2 stitches. Continue to work according to diagram A.1 and A.2 and REMEMBER STRIPES. When diagrams have been worked 1 time vertically, 4 stitches have been increased in right hand side of piece = 10 stitches on needle. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION

Continue to work according to diagrams A.1 and A.2 as follows: Work A.1 over 4 stitches, work until marker thread, work A.2 over 2 stitches. Continue to work diagrams like this, every time diagrams have been worked 1 time vertically, 4 stitches have been increased between marker thread and A.1. Work until diagrams has been worked 34 times in total vertically. Then work diagrams one last time vertically and on last row from wrong side cast off all the 146 stitches.
