22 inches x 68 inches without fringe
10 ounces of baby weight yarn – the pattern suggest a light lavender or orchid – it sounds lovely, doesn’t it?
knitting needles size 6 or the size needed to give you the gauge of 6 garter stitches to 1 inch
Cast on 133 stitches (sts) and work in garter st [knit (K) each row] for 1 ¼ inches, then work in pattern as follows:
1st Row: K7, ** yarn over (YO), K1, * yo twice, K1, repeat from * 4 times, yo, K8, repeat from ** across row.
2nd Row: ** K8, drop yo from previous row off needle (all yo’s are dropped without working them), K1, * drop the next 2 yo’s off needle, K1, repeat from * 4 times, drop the next yo off needle, repeat from ** across row ending with K7.
Next 4 Rows: K across each row.
7th Row: K14, ** yo K1, *yo twice, K1, repeat from * 4 times, yo, K8, repeat from ** across row ending last repeat with K15.
8th Row: K15, ** drop yo off needle, K1, * drop the next 2 yo’s off needle, K1, repeat from * 4 times, drop the next yo off needle, K8, repeat from ** across row ending last repeat with K14.
9th through 13th Rows: K across each row.
Repeat last 13 rows 33 times.
Repeat 1st and 2nd rows once. Work even in garter st for 1 ¼ inches, bind off. Block to measurements.
Fringe: Wind yarn over a 10 inch cardboard, cut one end.
Using 5 strands, double in half and knot through center st of last 2 rows at lower edge every 5th st across end.
