In supplement to the knitting pattern, you will need the following materials to knit the Octopus Garden shawl:
GAUGE :16 sts = 10 cm in stockinette stitch after blocking.
FINAL SIZE :
About the knitting pattern: The colour change is done every 2 rows (unless otherwise specified). When changing colour, do not cut the thread, leave it on standby at the beginning of the row and take it back two rows higher.
The waved strips are made with short rows based on the "German short row" method. ATTENTION: this technique is explained at the end of the document. I also found a very nice video tutorial by Mimi Kezer on Youtube that you can find HERE.
To lighten the text, there is no mention of slipping the markers when working with the waved strips: when you come across a marker, slip it in and continue as instructed.
Great design and easy prompt service
I haven’t made it yet but hope to soon and was a great pattern
I haven't knitted it yet. Read through the pattern and it looks like it will be easy to follow. It's beautiful, hope I can do it justice.
Good pattern for Noro Ito, fun to watch the colors change. The directions for the wave sections were well written. I appreciated the stitch counts.
As always, this pattern is well written and a pleasure to make. Great way to use up excess stash yarn as well
