The Knitter - - Infinity - Tanja Mur­ray

TANJA MUR­RAY is well known to many of our read­ers through her beau­ti­ful hand-dyed yarns, cre­ated un­der her brand The Knit­ting Swede. Tanja loves to de­sign shawls, too, and this project is worked in two shades of her Charisma 4ply yarn. It is knit­ted from the top down, with a body worked in stock­ing stitch stripes. The lower bor­der fea­tures a beau­ti­ful flo­ral pat­tern cre­ated us­ing nupps and wrapped stitches.

PAT­TERN NOTE

When purl­ing across yo2, knit the first yo and purl the sec­ond yo. For a video on how to do the Turk­ish cast-on, see http://bit.ly/turk­ishco.

SHAWL SET UP

Us­ing 4mm cir­cu­lar nee­dles and yarn A, cast on 10 sts (5 sts/loops on each nee­dle) us­ing the Turk­ish cast-on: hold­ing both nee­dle tips in your left hand, wrap the yarn anti-clock­wise around both 5 times, pull the bot­tom nee­dle out so the cast-on loops wrap the ca­ble on the bot­tom and you can knit. Row 1: K5. Row 2: Hold­ing the strands se­curely, ro­tate the work 180 de­grees, re­po­si­tion the nee­dles as nec­es­sary, and knit the 5 cast-on sts that were on the ca­ble.
