A shawl for Freja


Yarn:                 150 - 200 g. Navia Duo (100% pure new wool).

                        

Needle size:       4 mm. circular needle (80 cm.)

You will also need a sewing needle to weave in ends.   

 

The shawl is worked forth and back on a circular needle. The most complicated part of the shawl is the beginning. Once you are over this part, then the rest is easy going.


Let’s start:

  • Cast on 3 stitches.
  • RS: knit 1, yarn over, knit 1, yarn over, knit 1 (= 5 stitches totally)
  • WS: knit 1, purl 3, knit 1
  • RS: knit 1, yarn over, knit 1, yarn over, knit 1, yarn over, knit 1, yarn over, knit 1 (= 9 stitches totally)
  • WS: knit 2, purl 5, knit 2
  • RS: knit 2, yarn over, knit 2, yarn over, knit 1, yarn over, knit 2, yarn over, knit 2 (= 13 stitches totally)
  • WS: knit 3, purl 7, knit 3[1]
  • RS: knit 3, yarn over, knit 3, yarn over, knit 1, yarn over, knit 3, yarn over, knit 3 (= 17 stitches totally)
  • VS: knit 3, purl 11, knit 3
  • RS: knit 3, yarn over, knit 5, yarn over, knit 1, yarn over, knit 5, yarn over, knit 3 (= 21 stitches totally)
  • VS: knit 3, purl 15, knit 3


Keep doing this:

Increase 4 times on each right side row. The increases should be one after the first 3 stitches, one on both side of the middle stitch and one before the last 3 stitches..

On the wrong side keep knitting de first 3 and the last 3 stitches and purl the stitches in between.

When the shawl has the size you want then knit all stitches on the wrong side, knit all stitches on the right side, knit all stitches on the wrong side while binding off.

 

Fringe

 

I use 5 thread of yarn to make a fringe. See my tiktok channel or reels on how to make a fringe.

[1] Extra help: knit 3, place marker, purl 3, place marker, purl 1, place marker, purl 3, place marker ,knit 3.

It will help you to see where to increase with yarn over. On the right side increase after the first two markers and increase before on the two last markers.
