To begin, cast on 64 stitches and prepare to work a flat panel.
In this pattern, the YO is before a k2tog. The YO increases by 1 st while the k2tog decreases by 1 st, to create a beautiful lacy design.
Move the st (where you want the YO) to the peg on the left. Peg on left now has 2 loops and peg adjacent is empty.
As you work the row, do YO (ewrap) on empty peg and work the peg with 2 loops so that it becomes 1 loop. You now have 1 loop on all pegs.
Row 1: k2, *YO, k2tog; rep from * to the last st, k1
Row 2: p1, k62, p1
Row 3: k3, * yo, k2tog; rep from * to the last 2sts, k2
Row 4: p1, k62, p1
Repeat Rows 1-4 until item measures 54 inches (or until you have about 2 yards left of yarn). Bind off with Basic Removal method.
Weave ends in. Steam block lightly to measurements. This will help to set the stitches and achieve the best results.
Spray the knitted piece with water and lay on flat surface. Pin down with rust-proof pins to the measurements listed above. Cover with a damp cotton cloth. Hold a steam iron about two inches from the knitted fabric and steam down the item. Be careful not to touch the fabric with the iron. Allow the item to air dry before removing the pins. You may need to do this shawl in sections or pin to large piece of board lying on floor.
