SHAWL – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle so you have room for all the stitches. The whole piece is worked in GARTER STITCH – read description above.

SHAWL:
Cast on 5 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm = US 2,5 and work as follows:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over and 1 knit 1 (= 4 stitches increased and 9 stitches on needle).
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit all stitches and yarn overs.
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 3, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 3, 1 yarn over and knit 1 (= 4 stitches increased and 13 stitches on needle).
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Knit all stitches and yarn overs.
Insert 1 marker thread in the middle stitch and allow it to follow your work onwards.

Work the next row as follows:
ROW 5 (= right side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit as far as the stitch with marker thread. Make 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= mid-stitch) and 1 yarn over. Knit until there are 2 stitches left on row, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit 1 (= 6 stitches increased and 19 stitches on needle).
ROW 6 (= wrong side): Knit all stitches and yarn overs.

Repeat ROWS 5 and 6 onwards until there are 373 stitches on the needle (rows 5 and 6 have been worked a total of 60 times).

Then work according to diagram A.1-A.7 as follows from the right side: Work A.1 over 8 stitches, A.2 until there are 10 stitches left before the mid-stitch (=12 repeats in width), work A.3 over 10 stitches, A.4 over 1 stitch (= mid-stitch), A.5 over 10 stitches, A.6 until there are 8 stitches left on row (= 12 repeats in width) and work A.7 over 8 stitches. When the diagrams have been completed there are 457 stitches on the needle.

Work the diagrams 1 more time in height as follows: Work A.1 over 8 stitches, A.2 until there are 10 stitches left before the mid-stitch (=15 repeats in width), work A.3 over 10 stitches, A.4 over 1 stitch (= mid-stitch), A.5 over 10 stitches, A.6 until there are 8 stitches left on row (= 15 repeats in width) and work A.7 over 8 stitches.


When the diagrams have been completed there are 541 stitches on the row.
On the next row from the right side work as follows: Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit as far as the mid-stitch, 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= mid-stitch) 1 yarn over. Knit until there are 2 stitches left on row, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit 1 = 547 stitches on needle. Knit 1 row from the wrong side.

BINDING OFF:
So the bind-off edge is not tight you can make yarn overs at the same time as you bind off with knit from the right side as follows: Make 1 yarn over above the yarn overs in the pattern and then bind them off as normal stitches. Make sure the strand is not tight as you bind off. If the edge is still tight, use a larger needle size when casting off. Cut and fasten the strand. When the shawl is finished, it can be dampened and shaped – read SHAPING above.
