STITCH EXPLANATION:
ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog - 1 st decreased.
yo (yarn over)
An increase that creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows on a knit row:
1.

Bring yarn to front, between the needles.


2.

Take yarn to back, over the right needle.


On a purl row:
1.

Take yarn to back, over the right needle.


2.

Bring yarn to front, between the needles.


(yo) twice
An increase that creates a larger decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows on a knit row:
1.

Bring yarn to front, between the needles.


2.

Take yarn to back, over the right needle.


3.

Rep steps 1 and 2 to create one more loop on right hand needle.

NOTES:
1. Shawl begins at the center back neck and is shaped by working yarn over (yo) increases on every 4th row.
2. 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.
3. The first and last st of every row are always knit.
4. RS rows of the Shawl can be worked from the written instructions below or by following the chart.

Read all chart rows from right to left.
5. Place markers on Row 5 as instructed in written instructions to help keep track of your sts.

On the following rows, slip markers each time you come to them.
6. A yarn over (yo) creates a new loop on your needle.

Do not use an existing st to make a yo.

The finished yo will leave an open space (like an eyelet) in your knitting - the eyelet is part of this design.

All yarn overs are worked on RS rows.


7. All WS rows are worked as follows: K the first and last sts; p all remaining sts and single yarn overs; for each yo (twice), drop first loop then work p1, k1 into the remaining loop.
8. A crochet hook is used for a decorative bind off.
