Additional Materials
Circular knitting needle size 9 (5.5 mm), 40 in. (101.5 cm) long
12 1/2 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row). 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.


A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts.

Work back and forth in rows on circular needle as if working on straight needles.

Shawl is worked from lower back point up to top edge.

One st is increased by working a yarn over 1 st in from the beginning of each row.

A yarn over creates a new loop on your needle and is worked by wrapping the yarn around your right needle.

Do not use an existing stitch to make a yarn over.

The finished yarn over will leave an open space (like an eyelet) in your work - that is a part of this design.


Cast on 3 sts.

Row 1: Knit.
Row 2: K1, yarn over, k to end - 4 sts at the end of this row.
Repeat Row 2 until you have 175 sts.
Bind off.

Weave in ends.
