EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

-------------------------------------------------------

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6.
The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 185 stitches) and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 18) = 10.27. In this example, increase after approx. every 10th stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next row, work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

SHAWL - SHORT SUMMARY OF THE WORK:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle, top down.

SHAWL:
Cast on 61 stitches with circular needle size 4mm and Nord. Insert 1 marker 4 stitches in from each side (= 53 stitches between the markers). Work as follows:

ROW 1 (= from the right side): Work 3 stitches in GARTER STITCH – read description above, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), work garter stitch to the first marker, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), work 53 stitches in garter stitch (the 2nd marker sits here), 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), work garter stitch until there are 3 stitches left, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), finish with 3 stitches in garter stitch (= a total of 4 stitches increased on the row).
ROW 2 (= from the wrong side): Work garter stitch over all stitches, yarn overs are worked twisted to avoid holes.
Repeat rows 1 and 2. In other words, each row from the right side increases 1 stitch inside the 3 edge stitches in each side and 1 stitch on each side of the 53 middle stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Work a total of 31 ridges (= a total of 62 rows), i.e. you have increased 31 stitches on each side of the middle stitches and 31 stitches inside the 3 edge stitches in each side of the piece (= 124 stitches increased in total) = 185 stitches. Work 1 ridge and increase as usual (= 4 stitches) AT THE SAME TIME as you increase 18 stitches evenly spaced on the row from the right side – read INCREASE TIP = 207 stitches. The piece measures approx. 15 cm, measured in the knitting direction.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Work A.1 over the first 3 stitches, * A.2 (= 9 stitches), A.3 (= 3 stitches) *, work from *-* a total of 16 times, A.2 over the next 9 stitches, A.4 over the last 3 stitches. On the first row you increase 2 stitches in each A.2 = 241 stitches.
It is increased 1 stitch in A.1 and A.4 and 2 stitches in each A.3 on the 13th row, when repeating these diagrams in height there will be an increase every 26th row. You increase 34 stitches on each increase-row. The increased stitches are worked (and drawn) into pattern A.2.
Continue the pattern like this; A.1, A.3 and A.4 are repeated in height. When A.2a has been completed 1 time in height there are 309 stitches on the needle. Work A.2b (= 15 stitches) over A.2a. When A.2b has been worked 1 time in height there are 377 stitches on the needle. The piece measures approx. 53 cm, measured in the middle of the shawl.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Work 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, work A.5 (= 2 stitches) until there are 3 stitches left (= 186 times in width), work A.6 (= 1 stitch) and finish with 2 edge stitches in garter stitch. On the 6th row in A.6 increase 1 stitch as shown in the diagram = 378 stitches. When A.5 and A.6 have been worked 1 time in height, cast off with knit. The shawl measures a total of approx. 55 cm, measured in the middle.
