EXPLANATION FOR PATTERN:

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


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

2-COLOURED ENGLISH RIB (back and forth):
ROW 1 from the right side: Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, insert a marker here * knit 1, 1 yarn over and pass the next stitch onto the right needle as if to purl *, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left, insert a marker here, knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit 1. Do not turn the piece; the next row is also worked from the right side (= 2 stitches increased).

ROW 2 from the right side: Knit 3 (the marker sits here), * 1 yarn over, pass the next stitch onto right needle as if to purl, purl next yarn over and stitch together *, work from *-* until there are 3 stitches left (marker is here), knit 3. Turn the piece; the next row is worked from the wrong side.

ROW 3 from the wrong side: Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker sits here), * 1 yarn over, pass next stitch onto right needle as if to purl, purl next yarn over and stitch together*, work from *-* until there are 3 stitches left (marker sits here), knit 2, 1 yarn over and knit 1. Do not turn the piece; the next row is also worked from the wrong side (= 2 stitches increased).

ROW 4 from the wrong side: Knit 4 (marker sits here), * knit the next yarn over and stitch together, 1 yarn over and pass the next stitch onto right needle as if to purl *, work from *-* until there are 4 stitches left (marker sits here), knit 4. Turn the piece; the next row is worked from the right side.

After ROWS 1-4 you have increased a total of 4 stitches (2 stitches on each side). Now these stitches are worked into the English rib.

ROW 5 from the right side: Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1. There are now 2 stitches left before the marker, move the marker here and work the 2 stitches into the English rib as follows: Knit 1, 1 yarn over and pass the next stitch onto the right needle as if to purl. Now the 2 increased stitches have been worked into the English rib. Work as follows over the next stitches: * Knit together the next yarn over and stitch, 1 yarn over and pass the next stitch onto the right needle as if to purl *, work from *-* until there are 4 stitches left (you have worked to the marker). Remove the marker and work the next 2 stitches into the English rib as follows: Knit 1, 1 yarn over and pass the next stitch onto the right needle as if to purl. Now the 2 increased stitches have been worked into the English rib. Insert the marker here. Knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit 1 (= 2 stitches increased).

Then repeat ROWS 2-5 onwards (= 4 stitches increased on each repeat).

SHAPING:
Dampen the shawl and lay out carefully in the right shape. Allow it to dry. Repeat this process after each wash.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SHAWL - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle so that you have room for all the stitches. Due to the different textures in the shawl, you will need to shape it when you have finished – read SHAPING in the explanations above.

SHAWL:
Cast on 13 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm and light old pink. Knit 1 row from the wrong side. The next row is worked as follows:

ROW 48: Knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit to end of row (= 1 stitch increased) = 426 stitches on the needle.

CASTING OFF:
On the next row from the right side, cast off with an i-cord cast off. It is important that the cast-off edge is loose so that the shawl has a good shape and hangs nicely. You can use a size larger needle for casting off; make sure you work loose stitches. 
Work and cast off as follows: * Knit 2 and then knit twisted together the next 2 stitches. Slip the 3 stitches from the right needle back onto the left needle (in the order they are in) *, work from *-* until all stitches on the left needle have been cast off and you have 3 stitches left on the right needle. Slip these 3 stitches onto the left needle and cast them off in knit. Cut and fasten the strand

Diagram

= knit from right side, purl from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over. There will be a hole.
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.
