 Pattern notes:

 A row counter is useful for keeping track of rows in pattern.

 Three stitches at each edge of shawl are maintained in garter stitch throughout, for borders. If desired, slip the first stitch of every row purlwise for a smoother edge finish.

Special stitches:

 SSK (slip slip knit): Slip 2 sts from left needle to right needle, one at a time, without knitting them, then insert left needle from left to right through those 2 sts and knit them together from this position.

Shell: work 5 double crochet in same stitch.


 CO 30 sts LOOSELY.

 Knit 2 rows.

 Begin pattern:

 Note: if using stitch markers to denote border stitches, place one after the first 3 sts and another before the last 3 sts.  Slip markers every row.

 Row 1 (RS): K3, *K1, yo, ssk, rep from * across to last 3 sts, k3.

 Row 2 (WS): K3, purl across to last 3 sts, k3.
