INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

STRIPES:
SECTION-1: * 1 ridge with off white, 1 ridge with turquoise *, work from *-*.
SECTION-3: * 1 ridge with purple, 1 ridge with off white *, work from *-*.
SECTION-5: * 1 ridge with pink, 1 ridge with off white *, work from *-*.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.
A.2 shows the position of A.1 when decreasing on the one side of the piece and increasing on the other side.
A.X is always repeated in the same way in height, but there will be room for 1 more repeat of A.1 in width every time A.X is repeated in height.
----------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
The piece is worked diagonally from corner to corner in sections with garter stitch and lace pattern.
So that you have enough room for all the stitches, work back and forth with circular needle.

Cast on 3 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm and off white. Work 1 RIDGE – see description above. Then work garter stitch and STRIPES – see description above AT THE SAME TIME as you work as follows:

SECTION-1 (garter stitch in stripes off white/turquoise):
Row 1 (right side): Slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit until there is 1 stitch left on the row, work 2 stitches in the last stitch (= 1 stitch increased).
Row 2 (wrong side): Knit 2, knit twisted the loop before the next stitch on the left needle, knit until there are 2 stitches left on the row, knit 2 stitches twisted together (= 1 stitch increased and 1 stitch decreased).
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you have worked a total of 44 ridges. There are now 46 stitches on the needle. Change to off white and work section-2 as described below.

SECTION-2 (lace pattern in stocking stitch with off white):
Row 1 (right side): Slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit until there is 1 stitch left on row, work 2 stitches in the last stitch (= 1 stitch increased and 47 stitches on row).
Row 2 (wrong side): Knit 2, knit twisted the loop before the next stitch on the left needle, purl until there are 2 stitches left on the row, knit 2 stitches twisted together (= 1 stitch increased and 1 stitch decreased).

Then work A.1 AT THE SAME TIME as you continue decreasing in the one side of the piece and increasing in the other – read PATTERN and work as follows:
Row 1 (right side): Slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit 1, work A.1 until there are 3 stitches left on the row (= 7 repeats of 6 stitches), knit 2, then work 2 stitches in the last stitch (= 1 stitch increased).
Row 2 (wrong side): Knit 2, knit twisted the loop before the next stitch on the left needle, purl until there are 2 stitches left on the row, knit 2 stitches twisted together (= 1 stitch increased and 1 stitch decreased).
Continue A.1 as shown in A.2, decreasing on the one side of the piece and increasing on the other in the same way as before. When A.1 has been worked a total of 8 times in height (i.e. A.X a total of 4 times in height) there are 71 stitches on the needle. Change to purple and work section-3 as described below.

SECTION-3 (garter stitch in stripes with purple/off white):
Row 1 (right side): Slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit until there is 1 stitch left on the row, work 2 stitches in the last stitch (= 1 stitch increased and 72 stitches on the needle).
Row 2 (wrong side): Knit 2, knit twisted the loop before the next stitch on the left needle, knit until there are 2 stitches left on the row, knit 2 stitches twisted together (= 1 stitch increased and 1 stitch decreased).
Repeat rows 1 and 2 in stripes until you have worked 41 ridges. AT THE SAME TIME on the last row from the right side in ridge 41 increase 6 stitches evenly on row (in addition to the usual increase at the end of the row) = 118 stitches on needle. Change to off white and work section-4 as described below.

SECTION-4 (lace pattern in stocking stitch with off white):
Row 1 (right side): Slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit until there is 1 stitch left on the row, work 2 stitches in the last stitch (= 1 stitch increased and 119 stitches on the needle).
Row 2 (wrong side): Knit 2, knit twisted the loop before the next stitch on the left needle, purl until there are 2 stitches left on the row, knit 2 stitches twisted together (= 1 stitch increased and 1 stitch decreased).

Then work A.1 in the same way as in section-2 with decrease on the one side of the piece and increase on the other side, in other words work as follows:
Row 1 (right side): Slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit 1, work A.1 until there are 3 stitches left on the row (= 19 repeats of 6 stitches), knit 2, then work 2 stitches in the last stitch (= 1 stitch increased).
Row 2 (wrong side): Knit 1, knit twisted the loop before the next stitch on the left needle, purl until there are 2 stitches left on the row, knit 2 stitches twisted together (= 1 stitch increased and 1 stitch decreased).
Continue A.1 in the same way as shown in A.2 (but with more repeats in width) – AT THE SAME TIME, continue to increase on the one side of the piece and decrease on the other side as before. When A.1 has been worked a total of 8 times in height (i.e. A.X a total of 4 times in height) there are 143 stitches on the needle. Change to pink and work section-5 as described below.

SECTION-5 (garter stitch in stripes pink/off white):
Row 1 (right side): Slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit until there is 1 stitch left on the row, work 2 stitches in the last stitch (= 1 stitch increased and 144 stitches on the needle).
Row 2 (wrong side): Knit 2, knit twisted the loop before the next stitch on the left needle, knit until there are 2 stitches left on the row, knit 2 stitches twisted together (= 1 stitch increased and 1 stitch decreased).
Repeat rows 1 and 2 in stripes until you have worked 41 ridges. AT THE SAME TIME on the last row from the right side in ridge 41, increase 6 stitches evenly on row (in addition to the usual increase at the end of the row). There are now 190 stitches on the needle. Change to off white and work section-6 as described below.

SECTION-6 (lace pattern in stocking stitch with off white):
Row 1 (right side): Slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit until there is 1 stitch left on the row, work 2 stitches in the last stitch (= 1 stitch increased and 191 stitches on the needle).
Row 2 (wrong side): Knit 2, knit twisted the loop before the next stitch on the left needle, purl until there are 2 stitches left on the row, knit 2 stitches twisted together (= 1 stitch increased and 1 stitch decreased).
Continue A.1 in the same way as in section-2 and section-4 (there is now room for 31 repeats in width) - AT THE SAME TIME continue the decrease on the one side of the piece and increase on the other side in the same way as before. When A.1 has been worked a total of 8 times in height (i.e. A.X a total of 4 times in height) there are 215 stitches on the needle. Change to turquoise and work section-7 as described below.

SECTION-7:
Row 1 (right side) with turquoise: Slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit until there is 1 stitch left on the row, work 2 stitches in the last stitch (= 1 stitch increased and 216 stitches on the needle).
Row 2 (wrong side) with turquoise: Knit 2, knit twisted the loop before the next stitch on the left needle, knit until there are 2 stitches left on the row, knit 2 stitches twisted together (= 1 stitch increased and 1 stitch decreased).
Row 3 (= right side) with off white: Slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit until there is 1 stitch left on the row, work 2 stitches in the last stitch (= 1 stitch increased).
Row 4 (wrong side) with off white: Knit 2, knit twisted the loop before the next stitch on the left needle, knit until there are 2 stitches left on the row, knit 2 stitches twisted together (= 1 stitch increased and 1 stitch decreased).
Repeat rows 1-4 one more time. Change to turquoise and repeat rows 1-2 two more times (= 1 ridge turquoise, 1 ridge off white, 1 ridge turquoise, 1 ridge off white, 2 ridges turquoise).
Cast off with knit from the right side as follows: Knit 2 stitches, * insert the left needle into the 2 stitches on the right needle from left to right and knit them together, knit 1 *, work from *-* until there is 1 stitch left on the row. Cut the strand and pull it through the last stitch. Casting off in this way gives an elastic cast-off edge. Fasten all the strands.

Diagram

= knit from right side, purl from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted together stitches
