SHAWL - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work piece back and forth on circular needle.

SHAWL:
Cast on 5 stitches on circular needle size 3 mm with Alpaca. Work pattern as follows: 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – read explanation above, A.1 over next stitch (= 1 stitch), 1 stitch in garter stitch (= middle stitch), A.1 over next stitch, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Insert a marker thread in the middle stitch on row (= middle stitch and marker thread follow upwards in piece). Continue pattern back and forth like this until A.1 has been worked vertically = 81 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Now work pattern as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.2 over the next 11 stitches, A.3 over the next 18 stitches, A.4 over the next 10 stitches, 1 stitch in garter stitch (= middle stitch), A.2 over the next 11 stitches, A.3 over the next 18 stitches, A.4 over the next 10 stitches, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue back and forth until A.2, A.3 and A.4 have been worked vertically = 153 stitches. Then continue pattern and increase outwards the same way but every time the diagrams have been worked vertically there is room for 2 repetitions more of A.3 between A.2 and A.4 in each side of piece. When piece measures approx. 71 cm measured along middle stitch - adjust to finish after a whole leaf (i.e. finish after 16th row or 32nd row in A.2 to A.4), work an edge as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.5 over the next 29 stitches, A.6 until 28 stitches remain before middle stitch, A.7 over the next 28 stitches, 1 stitch in garter stitch (= middle stitch), A.5 over the next 29 stitches, A.6 until 29 stitches remain on row, A.7 over the next 28 stitches, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. When A.5 to A.7 have been worked vertically, 8 stitches have been increased on row. Piece measures approx. 72 cm along middle stitch. Cast off. Make sure to avoid a tight cast-off edge, cast off with 1 larger needle size if needed.
