A great project for knitting beginners
Learn how to knit a mini version of the famous trendy shawl.
Place the string at the back and start knitting the stitches until you have only one stitch left on the left needle.
We will now make an increase at the end of the row.
The most difficult here is to see which stitch you have to pick.
You will catch it by lifting the string with your left needle. It is the string on the front side between the stitch on the right needle and the stitch on the left needle. See below (5).
Catch the back of the stitch with the right needle (6) and knit it (7). You have one stitch left on your left needle (8).
You then need to bind off your stitches to finish the shawl.
To keep the elasticity of your shawl, a special technique is needed to bind off loosely.
Knit the first two stitches (1 & 2). They are now on your right needle (3).
Insert the left hand needle into the two stitches on the right hand needle, on top of the right needle as shown (4).
