Garns shawl

Pinterest sent me knitting pins today.  I particularly liked the shawl that someone had pinned from the Garns Studio site.

Arabian Nights by DROPS Design

Knitted DROPS shawl in garter st with stripes in ”Fabel”.

DROPS design: Pattern no fa-266
Yarn group A
Measurements: approx. 100 cm / 39½'' measured along the short side (bind-off edge).

DROPS FABEL from Garnstudio
100 g color no 903, yellow/pink
100 g color no 911, fun lilac.

DROPS CIRCULAR NEEDLE (60 cm / 24'') size 4.5 mm / US 7 – or size needed to get 20 sts x 39 rows in garter st = 4'' x 4'' (10 x 10 cm).

 NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts. Cast on 3 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with yellow/pink and K 2 rows. Switch to fun lilac.
ROW 1: K 1, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO and K 1.
ROW 2: K all sts.
ROW 3: Switch to yellow/pink and K 2 tog (loosely), K until 1 st remains, 1 YO and K 1.
ROW 4: K all sts.
ROW 5: Switch to fun lilac and work until 2 sts remain, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO and K 1.
Repeat rows 2 to 5. Work like this until there are approx. 200 sts on needle or to desired measurements. Make sure to leave enough yarn for bind off, and bind off after 2nd or 4th row. To make an elastic edge, bind off as follows: * bind off 2 sts, make a YO and loosely bind off YO *, repeat from *-* the entire row. Cut the yarn and fasten.
