For the shawl I simply cast on five stitches and then worked as follows:
First row: knit one, yarn over, knit one, yarn over, place marker, knit one, place marker, yarn over, knit one, yarn over, knit one. (9 stitches).
Second row and every alternate row: knit all stitches.
Third row: knit one, yarn over, knit three, yarn over, slide marker, knit one, slide marker, yarn over, knit three, yarn over, knit one. (13 stitches, 6 on either side of the marker and one centre stitch).
Continue working yarn over increases after the first stitch, either side of the markers and before the last stitch. I always attach a stitch marker to remind me which side to work the increases! It's a really simple shawl but looks really nice with a centre vein. The blue, grey and silver shawl is one I finished last month and I wear it all the time!
What's on your needles, hook, wheel etc. today?
