I fell in love with this chittagong shawl the moment I saw the pics.
I found it more interesting to swing-knit the shawl as a square spiral than knitting the enormous stockinette part.
I started the shawl with the increases from the very beginning:
CO 16 stitches, placing 4 markers after every fourth stitch, increases: 8 stitches every second row with MC in garter (one on each side of the marker - jep, don’t know how to express correctly: one stitch on both sides of the marker is just knitted, the increases take place before and behind this one stitch) until I got 18 stitches between the markers.
2 rows in stockinette while continuing the increases.
And then just swing-knitting.

Well, and something concerning the title of this project:
I am not really good finding titles for projects.
It was manfredovna who suggested to name it after a scandinavian and north german dessert: Rote Grütze. And she added the wikipedia explanation of this northern european speciality for all those who live in other spheres. And the beginning really looks like it. Thanks, Katharina.

Some swing-knitters agreed to make this adventure together with me. This is the link to the diashow
