Materials and Size

Patons Beehive Pearl-Knit, 2-Ply
or Patons Beehive Lady Betty, 3-Ply

47 ins x 47 ins - 9 balls

Knitting Needles, 1 pair UK No 7/4.5mm/US 7nitting Needles, 1 pair No. 7

Tension

To get these measurements it is absolutely necessary to work at a tension to produce 7 stitches to the inch in width, measured over plain, smooth fabric.

Note

To obtain the most satisfactory edges for joining pieces of shawl together, the following points should be noted.

Casting on: Use the two needle method and do not knit into back of sts on first row.

Side Edges: Keeping wool at front of work, slip the first st purlways on every row, take wool to back of work ready for the second stitch. The last stitch should be knitted on every row.

Casting off: Use the ordinary method but work very loosely. When joining the shawl the chain edges should be drawn together.
