Myrtle Beach Shawl - by Shandeh
I hope you like my design! I used a Yarnspirations baby blanket pattern as my inspiration.
More colors available from Yarnspirations:
Knitting Needle: Size 11 (8 mm) 24" circular, or size needed to achieve gauge.
Gauge: 12 stitches = 4 inches in stockinette stitch
Shawl measures about 30" wide x 60" long
Note: If you want your shawl to measure 24" wide, cast on 83 stitches.
K = Knit, K2tog = Knit next 2 stitches together, P = Purl, PSSO = Pass slipped stitch over, RS = Right side Sl1 = Slip next stitch knitwise, SSK = Slip next 2 stitches one at a time. Pass them back onto left-hand needle, then knit through the back loops together. St(s) = Stitch(es), WS = Wrong side, YO = Yarn Over
Using Color A, cast on 103 sts. Do not join.
Working back across needle, knit 1 row.
Begin Stitch Pattern:
1st row: With Color A (RS). K1. K2tog. *K8. (K1. yo. K1) in next st. K8. Sl1, K2tog, PSSO.
Repeat from * 3 times more. K8. (K1. YO. K1) in next st. K8. SSK. K1.
2nd row: Knit.
Switch to Color B, dropping Color A for using later.
3rd row: Same as Row 1
4th row: K3, Purl to last 3 stitches, K3
These 4 rows are the Stitch Pattern.
Never cut the yarn. Just drop the unused color, and pick it up again every 2 rows.
Continue in pattern, always working Rows 1 & 2 with Color A, and Rows 3 & 4 with Color B
until work from beginning along side edge measures about 60 inches, ending on a RS row.
With appropriate color, cast off knitwise.
