Gauge

16 sts and 32 rows = 4 inches/10cm in garter st. Ex­act gauge is not crit­i­cal to this project.

Spe­cial Ab­bre­vi­a­tion

Wrap & Turn (W&T): Slip next st pwise to RH nee­dle; bring yarn to front be­tween nee­dles; slip same st back to LH nee­dle; turn work, then beg work­ing back in op­po­site di­rec­tion. There is no need to work wrap and st tog in garter st.

Pat­tern Notes

Cir­cu­lar nee­dle is used to ac­com­mo­date large num­ber of stitches. Do not join; work back and forth in rows.

When chang­ing col­ors in striped por­tion of shawl, do not cut yarn; carry yarn that’s not in use loosely along edge.

Slip first stitch of ev­ery row purl­wise with yarn in front, then take yarn to back be­tween tips of nee­dles.

Body of shawl is worked side­ways; then bor­der is picked up and worked in 2 sec­tions, which are shaped by us­ing short rows.
