That's what I did!

Here's my progress so far...



I made the piccy small so you can't see how terrible it is!

DQ...I don't think it looks terrible! I love the color...what kind of yarn and weight are you using?
I'm going tomorrow to pick out some yarn!

Contiknitter, I've a question. When doing the O in KOK do you bring the yarn from the back and over the top of the needle and then make the second K? I've been practivcing this pattern and to start with I was making the O by going over the front to the back. Although, I had no trouble with the second K, it didn't look correct. Which way do you all do it?

Also, is there a way to keep the stitches uniform looking along the edges?
I pull these stitches tight, but some of them still look to large. Thanks!

The yarn is just some acrylic DK I bought in the 1 shop! I just loved the colour of it There's only 2 (fairly big) balls of it though so I don't know how big this shawl is going to be But when I'm finished I can always buy a different yarn and make another!

DQ, it is great!

I can't even start mine, I tried six times last night and just don't get that k, yo, k thing. It looked awful. I got frustrated and put it away. I really want to make this but I am having a serious block with that knit into a stitch thing!!

I know what you mean I did too. i found it helped me to look at the 'bar increase' video in the basic techniques section although it's not quite the same thing I think it's the closest there is.

Debbie, yes, I did. What I did was to look at the previous row when I was knitting row 29, and here's what I came up with instead, and it worked (I don't know why, but it worked! ):

K4, (K, YO, K), K4, *P2, (Sl 2-k1-p2sso), P2, K4, (K, YO, K), K4, repeat from *, end with CO 3 sts.

Try that and see if it works out for you.
