EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

DECREASE TIP:
All decreases worked from the right side!
Decrease 1 stitch inside the 2 stitches in garter stitch by knitting 2 together. Repeat the decrease alternately every, and every 2nd, row from the right side a total of 26 times in each repeat (there are 5 repeats on the shawl). Each time you start on a new repeat with short rows, start the decreases again; i.e. you decrease 26 stitches on each repeat.

STRIPES:
NOTE: Change of color is at the beginning of a row from the right side (= bottom edge of shawl). Make sure the strand is not tight between changes!
STRIPE-1: * 1 ridge with wooden rose, 1 ridge with off white *, work from *-* until repeat 1 has been completed = 40 ridges.
STRIPE-2: * 1 ridge with wooden rose, 1 ridge with off white *, work from *-* until repeat 2 has been completed = 40 ridges.
STRIPE-3: * 1 ridge with sand, 1 ridge with off white *, work from *-* until repeat 3 has been completed = 40 ridges.
STRIPE-4: * 1 ridge with rose mist, 1 ridge with off white *, work from *-* until repeat 4 has been completed = 40 ridges.
STRIPE-5: * 1 ridge with wooden rose, 1 ridge with off white *, work from *-* until repeat 5 has been completed = 40 ridges.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid holes when turning the piece during short rows, tighten the strand before continuing.
