Shawl knitalong

This is the 4th post of my shawl knitalong, you can find the other 3 herehere, and here.
The pictures are getting harder to make understanable, so you will have to rely more on the pattern.
This week we will continue on the main shawl, and make 2 rosettes.

Starting with the 41 sts from last week.
First row: k1 yo k39 yo k1
next row: p across.
k row: k1 yo k41 yo k1
p row: p across.

Continue working in the pattern until you reach 57 sts on your needle.

purl every purl row, knit 1 more before your kfb every knit row, when you have 10 sts on your needle knit stockinette for 5 rows.
It should look like this right after cast off.
Next row: k1 k2tog k across.

k row: k1 k2tog k across. Repeat k1 k2tog k across every k row, purl across every p row, until you have 2 sts left then cast off.
Leave 3 inch strand of yarn after casting off, use to tie/weave in a spiral until it resembles a rosette.

That is all for this week, I am looking forward to next Friday. Thank you for reading!
