5 balls Estelle Watercolours
12 mm needles
Finished size: approximately 90 cm (36 inches) deep and 150 cm (60 inches) across top edge not including fringe.
Gauge: approximately 8 sts per 10 cm (4 inches) using two strands of Watercolours held together – gauge is not critical for this project.
Cast on 2 stitches.
Row 1: k1, yo, knit to end of row. (Each row will be one stitch longer than the previous row.)
Repeat row 1 until you have used four balls of Watercolours or until desired length is achieved. Cast off very loosely.
Make fringe: Using the fifth ball, cut lengths of Watercolours approximately 35 cm (14 inches) long. You can wind the yarn around a small paperback book, lengthwise, and cut along one end to make the pieces. Knot four fringes through each yarnover hole at the edge of the shawl.
YO – yarnover increase – bring yarn between needle points to front, then take across the top of the needle before knitting the next stitch. This makes a decorative increase.
