Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here.

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

Make 2 yarn overs. On the next row, drop the first yarn over, knit the next yarn over (there will be holes!) = 1 stitch increased.

Change color on row from the right side.
Work stripes as follows: * knit 2 rows with light beige, knit 2 rows with off white *, repeat from *-* upwards.

The piece is worked back and forth in garter stitch and with circular needle. All measurements are taken along the mid-stitch on the shawl.

Cast on 5 stitches with circular needle size 9 mm / US 13 and off white. Work as follows:
NOTE: Knit all stitches and yarn overs!
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit 2, make 1 DOUBLE YARN OVER – see description above, knit 1 (= mid-stitch), make 1 double yarn over, knit 2, cast on 2 new stitches at the end of the row = 9 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle stitch.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit all stitches, cast on 2 new stitches at the end of the row = 2 stitches increased.
ROW 3: Knit to the mid-stitch, make 1 double yarn over, knit 1 (= mid-stitch), make 1 double yarn over, knit the remaining stitches, cast on 2 new stitches at the end of the row = 4 stitches increased.
REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Repeat rows 2 and 3 until finished length. When the piece measures 21 cm / 8 1/4'' work STRIPES – see description above. When the piece measures approx. 35 cm / 13 3/4'' – adjust so that you have worked 2 rows off white, continue working with light beige. Bind off loosely with double strand when the piece measures approx. 40 cm / 15 3/4'' along the mid-stitch. Fasten the threads.
