Circular knitting needle size 10 (6 mm), 36 in. (91.5 cm) long
12 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL TO THIS PROJECT. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.
Place markers as instructed on Row 3 to help keep track of your sts.
On following rows, slip markers each time you come to them.
Shawl begins at center back neck and is shaped by working yarn over (yo) increases on every row.
A yarn over creates a new loop on your needle and is worked by wrapping the yarn around your right hand needle.
Do not use an existing st to make a yarn over.
The finished yarn over will leave an open space (like an eyelet) in your knitting-the eyelet is part of this design.
2 sts at the beginning and end of every row are always knit.
Shawl sts increase by 4 sts on every RS row (except Row 1).
A series of yarn overs and k2togs are worked on Row 9 to create the eyelet pattern.
Circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts.
Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
