lion brand® touch of alpaca® bonus bundle simple knit shawl

Step 1
Project Note: The number of Skeins needed to complete this project is 1 - Lion Brand® Touch of Alpaca® Bonus Bundle Yarn – Dusty Blue 

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: About 22" x 46" (56 x 117 cm) at widest and longest points, after blocking.

GAUGE: 15 sts = about 4" (10 cm) in Garter st (knit every st on every row). Please be sure to check your gauge.
 
STITCH EXPLANATION:
Yo (Yarn Over)
   -  An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
          1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
          2. Take yarn to back, over the right hand needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.
 
NOTES:
1. Shawl is worked in one piece, beginning at center back neck, and is shaped by working yarn over (yo) increases.
2. If you are comfortable working yarn overs, this shawl is easy enough for a beginner!
3. Stitch markers are used to help keep track of your stitches.
4. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth in rows on the circular needle, just as if working on straight needles.
5. A larger needle is used to bind off. This makes a smooth outer edge on the shawl.
6. The edging is designed to roll gently. 
Step 2
SHAWL:
Cast on 5 sts.
 
Row 1: K2, yo, k1, yo, k2 – you will have 7 sts at the end of this row.
