2. K3, p across, k3
Repeat rows 1 and 2 two more times, then knit across.

You will now begin border. Keep stitches on circular needle. Using the yarn attached to the body of the work, cast on 19 stitches. Using a single straight needle or dpn of the same diameter of the circular needle, knit those 19 stitches. Knit those 19 stitches again. You are now ready to start edging pattern. On each ODD row, you will knit 2 together using the last stitch of edging and the next stitch of the shawl edge, thereby using one stitch of shawl edge for each 2 rows of edging pattern.
Note: If you start edging after row 63, you will have 42 repeats of the edging; if after row 64, you will have 82 repeats of edging..

When you have one stitch of shawl left, use last stitch in knitting 2 rows plain and bind off.
Crochet a row of single crochet along the first 9 stitches to give some firmness to this area and blend into the border. (These 9 stitches can also be folded together and sewn if your yarn thickness does not make this undesirable). Weave in ends.

I was browsing shawls and came across Katy. I love the shape of it! And the pattern. I do have a couple questions before I get started though.

Do you have any pictures of it on someone? If not, can you tell me how it hangs from the shoulders (it looks like it would hardly need a shawl pin)?

How much yardage did you use? I’d like to make it from some light fingering yarn my dad sent me this Yule and I want to make sure there is enough with only one color or if I’ll need to stripe it. I also may do it with some “present to me” cobweb yarn that has 1,125yds. (that yarn is for a shawl that looks just like what yours does, only I didn’t find it until today!)

How long did it turn out?

Thank you so much!

Blessings,
Shannon
