Cast on 5 sts and purl 1 row.

Next row: K1, kfb, k1, kfb, k1 = 7 sts (2 sts increased).

Start following the Lace chart I at row 1:

Row 1 (RS): K2, yo, k1, yo, k1 (centre st), yo, k1, yo, k2 = 11 sts.

Row 2: K2, p3, k1 (centre st), p3, k2 = 11 sts.

Row 3: K2, yo, k3, yo, k1 (centre st), yo, k3, yo, k2 = 15 sts.

Row 4: K2, p5, k1 (centre st), p5, k2 = 15 sts.

Keep following Chart I and work rows 5–24. Four stitches are increased on each RS row (1 st at side edges and 1 st at each side of the centre stitch). You have now 55 sts on the needle and one lace pattern repeat on each side of the centre stitch.

Work rows 25–38. You have now 83 sts on the needle and two lace pattern repeats on each side of the centre stitch.

Work rows 39–52. You have now 111 sts on the needle and three lace pattern repeats on each side of the centre stitch.

Keep working in the same way so that 28 sts is increased and one more lace pattern repeat worked on each side of the centre stitch over 14 rows.

After you have worked a total of 122 rows and there are 8 lace pattern repeats on each side of the centre stitch, you have 251 sts on the needle. Continue in the following way:

Row 123: K2, yo, k to centre st, yo, k1 (centre st), yo, k to last 2 sts, yo, k2.

Row 124: K2, p to centre st, k1 (centre st), p to last 2 ts, k2.

Rows 125–126: Repeat rows 123–124 once = 259 sts.

Start following Chart I at row 127:

Row 127 (RS): Following the chart from right to left, work the first 12 sts (11 st + 1 st), repeat the 14 st pattern repeat for 8 times, work 7 sts (6 st + 1 st) before the centre st, k1 (centre st), work 7 sts after the centre st (6 st + 1 st), repeat the 14 st pattern repeat for 8 times, work last 12 sts (11 st + 1 st) = 263 sts.

Work rows 128–142. You have now 291 sts on the needle.

Rows 143–146: Repeat rows 123–126 = 299 sts.

Start following Chart II at row 147:

Row 147 (RS): Following the chart from right to left, work the first 7 sts (6 st + 1 st), repeat the 10 st pattern repeat for 14 times, work 4 sts before the centre st (3 st + 1 st), k1 (centre st), work 5 sts after the centre st (4 st + 1 st), repeat the 10 st pattern repeat for 14 times, work last 6 sts (5 st + 1 st) = 303 sts.

Work rows 148–200. You have now 407 sts on the needle.

Row 201: K2, yo, k to centre st, yo, k1 (centre st), yo, k to last 2 sts, yo, k2 = 411 sts.

After finishing row 201, cast on 26 sts with the working yarn. Turn work.

Next row (WS): P26. Turn work.

Start following the border lace pattern at row 1 of Chart III and work one pattern repeat (26 + 1 st). Turn work.

Row 2 (WS): Work to 1 st before end, p2tog (the last st of the border lace and the first st of the body).

Work rows 3–26 and after that keep repeating rows 1–28. Work p2tog at the end of every 4th row (WS; the last st of the border lace and the first st of the body). One body st will be decreased on every 4th row = every other WS row.

Note When you have decreased altogether 11 body sts, start decreasing on every 2nd row (work p2tog at the end of each WS row). One body st will now be decreased on every WS row.

After you have decreased altogether 191 body sts (11 x 1 st on every 4th row and 180 x 1 st on every 2nd row), decrease 29 x 1 body st on every 4th row, 180 x 1 body st on every 2nd row and 11 x body 1 st on every 4th row. The border lace rows 1–28 are repeated 16½ times on each side of the centre stitch = there will be 33 pattern repeats in total.

When you have completed decreasing the body sts and you have just worked row 28, cast off all sts.

Finishing

Lay the shawl to measurements on a flat surface with the WS facing, wet with a spray bottle and let dry.
