GAVSTRIK SHAWL by Marianne Isager

this is a physical pattern, if you require a digital copy please visit Isager's Ravelry page. 

Marianne Isager, from Danish yarn company designed this stunning shawl which uses clever colour changes and a zig zag pattern throughout. 

The GAVSTRIK Shawl is worked from side to side in a zig zag pattern.  The pattern is worked in stocking stitch stripes, alternating between stocking stitch and reserve stockiing stitch.  On the shawl's first half the upper (straight) side has a three-stitch garter edge and the angular side has an edge which alternates between a three stitch garter edge and a section where new stitches are cast on and on the second half the angular edge alternates between stitches being cast off and a three - stitch garter edge.  The Shawl has no right or wrong side, but to aid the knitting, the first part of the pattern gives right and wrong side rows just as this first part gives row numbers.    

The Shawl can be made in two sizes either 63 x 150cm or 73 x 170 cm
