  Materials: 1 ball Diamond Angorissima, 1 marker, 4.25 mm needles, 4.5 mm crochet hook and an approx. 1.5 m strand of a yarn in a similar colour but in Aran weight to cast off all last sts. Note: 1 ball makes a kerchief of the following dimensions: 50 cm height (20") - 2 x 65 cm edges ( 2 x 26") - 85 cm length (33-1/2"). Use 2 balls to make a larger kerchief. Close-up »

Pattern: RS - K2, P2. WS - P2, K2. K edge sts on RS, P edge sts on WS. Instructions: Cast on 6 sts. 1st row: K edge sts, K1, P2, K1, K edge sts. 2nd row: P edge sts, P1, K2, P1, P edge sts. Put marker in the center, between two P sts on RS. Knit 60 rows in pattern increasing 2 stitches every row: Make 2 stitches from the 2nd stitch at the beginning and 2 stitches from the 2nd stitch at the end of the row. Row 61, facing RS: Knit in pattern until you reach 2 center P stitches (a marker is between them). Continue center increase as follows: make 2P sts from the first P stitch, then make K2 using yarn in between, and again make 2P sts from the second P stitch. Continue in pattern. Knit 7 more rows. Do center increase again facing RS, but this time make P2 between two K stitches and double first and second center K stitches. Continue in pattern increasing 1 sts at each end of every row, and do center increase in every 8th row follow the pattern.
When ball of the yarn is fully used, attach a strand of an Aran weight yarn in a similar colour (e.g. Cascade Cantata or similar) and continue in pattern to finish the last RS row. Facing WS and using a 4.5 mm crochet hook - loosely cast off all sts at once. Gently and loosely block kerchief with pins on a piece of fabric for 2-3 days to achieve a correct shape. Note: we would not recommend the use of a shawl blocking frame since angora stretches easily and can be deformed on the frame.

Care: Hand wash in lukewarm water with
woolwash no rinse: do not wring out, make a ball instead and gently squeeze in soapy water. Dry flat in shade, away from heat or direct sunlight. Do not tumble dry. No iron.
