A MOREHOUSE ORIGINAL PATTERN
about 80" at its widest and 40" deep
(not including fringe)
Sport-weight, 880 yards;
the sample shown is knit with
4 skeins of Morehouse Merino 2-Ply
Circular needle #8 or #9, 29" long
(shawl is knit back and forth,
but circular needle will accommodate
the number of stitches more comfortably)
About 3 stitches = 1 inch
(gauge is not important, but if you knit tight,
you might want to go to a #9 needle)
Cast on 3 stitches and knit 2 rows.
Next row: knit 1, increase 1,
knit 1, increase 1, knit last stitch.
Knit next row. Start with pattern.
Knit first stitch, *yarn over, knit 1;
rep from * to end of row.
Knit first stitch—but donít drop stitch off the needle,
knit it a second time, but this time knit into the back of stitch,
*drop yarn over, knit 1; rep from * to last stitch,
knit last stitch twice (same as first stitch).
Knit first stitch, increase 1 (increase by picking up yarn
between first and second stitch with left needle and knitting
into back of loop on needle), knit to last stitch, increase 1
(repeat increase technique from beginning of row), knit last stitch.
Repeat these four rows until you have 200 stitches. Bind off very,
very loosely (bind-off row should be as elastic and stretchable as shawl).
Fringe: cut pieces of yarn 16Ē long. Fold piece of fringe in half
and insert top of loop through edge of shawl (use crochet hook), then slip
the two ends of fringe through loop and pull down hard to tighten loop.
Insert 1 piece of fringe per garter stitch rib (every 2 rows).
