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.
