EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
Knit all rows (1 ridge = 2 knitted rows).

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

HEAD BAND - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work back and forth on needle in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above.

HEAD BAND:
Cast on 20-21-22 stitches on needle size 5 mm with Air. Work in GARTER STITCH until piece measures approx. 47-49-51 cm or desired length. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Cast off all stitches by knitting. Sew cast-on edge together with cast-off edge with neat little stitches but to make twist at the front on head band twist the piece 1 time in the middle before sewing together (half piece with right side outwards and half piece with wrong side outwards). To make the twist stay in place sew a small stitch through all layers mid front. Make sure that the twist is mid front and seam is mid back. Fasten off.

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

SHAWL - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work back and forth, top down on circular needle in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Knit yarn overs to make holes when increasing.

SHAWL:
Cast on 7 stitches on circular needle size 9 mm with Air.
Work in GARTER STITCH and increase as follows:
ROW 1: Knit 1, make 1 yarn over, knit 2, make 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= middle stitch), make 1 yarn over, knit 2, make 1 yarn over and knit 1. Insert 1 marker in the middle stitch, move the marker upwards when working (= 4 stitches increased).

ROW 2: Knit 1, make 1 yarn over, knit until 1 stitch remains on needle, make 1 yarn over and knit 1 (= 2 stitches increased).

ROW 3: Knit 1, make 1 yarn over, knit until middle stitch, make 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= middle stitch), make 1 yarn over and knit until 1 stitch remains, make 1 yarn over and knit 1 (= 4 stitches increased).

Work ROWS 2 and 3. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Work until piece measures approx. 43 cm measured along middle stitch.

CAST-OFF:
On next row cast off with an i-cord cast-off. It is important that the cast-off edge is not too tight. Use a larger needle to cast off if needed and make sure to work loose stitches. 
Work and decrease as follows: * Knit 2, knit the next 2 stitches together. Slide the 3 stitches from right needle back on left needle (in same order they are in) *, work from *-* until all stitches on left needle as cast off and 3 stitches remain on right needle. 
Slide the stitches on to left needle and cast off the 3 stitches by knitting. Cut the yarn and sew in the end.

Hei, det står strikk til arbeidet måler ca 43cm fra midtmasken. Det er vanskelig å måle på rundpinnen, og jeg har prøvd å telle huller på bildet i stedet. Kan dere oppgi antall masker ved felling - eller ev antall hull nedover langs midten i stedet? Takk.

Hei Tove. Det er ca 32 hull langs midten av sjalet. God fornøyelse
