Notes

I’ve been wanting to knit this for years…
Couldn’t resist knitting a life size swatch. Aka casting on ;-)

As a tight knitter (at least in garter stitch) I’ve gone up in needle size.

Increases: kfb into second to last stitch

Carrying the idle colour along the edge during the stripes

When picking p stitches: kyok into the points, straight edge kfb into every 2nd stitch

BO:
slanted side 1 (most slanted) - suspended BO
slanted side 2 (slightly slanted) - 1 stitch suspended BO, one stitch classic BO
‘straight edge’ - 1 stitch suspended BO, one stitch classic BO

shell ‘tassles’ on each side of straight edge, beads on every fourth stitch

Beads are Miyuki Long Magatama 3mm galvanised silver matte

Number four in 2019
Wingspan: 215cm
Depth 73 cm
