Knitting pattern for Dia shawl, a flying, beautiful shawl in the light and luxurious yarns Isager Alpaca 1 and Spinni merino wool. Warm and luscious in dusty colors, with a good fit and plenty of draping options. The increases are like fine rows of holes along vertical lines of highlighted stitches, making the shawl light and airy. The shawl is finished with an i-cord edge. It’s reversible and equally beautiful on both sides. If buttons are placed at two places on the edges, the shawl can be used as a cardigan.

Guiding circular needle size 4½ / US 7 and double pointed needles size 5 / US 8. 12 markers in color 1 = increase = M1. 12 markers in color 2 = decrease = M2.
Gauge: 21 sts and 30 rows on needle size 4½ / US 7 = 10 cm x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches.
Directions: The shawl is started at mid back of the neck and knitted back and forth. Increase on the right side by performing yarn overs that form decorative holes along strings of 4 highlighted stitches. Work these 4 sts alternately on every other row so that on each row you knit 2 sts twisted and slip the other 2 sts. In addition, decreases are made on every 4th row between the increase lines of the highlighted stitches to create a clear wing appearance.
