Old Shale Shawl

I am really having fun with these Caron Cakes, once I find a pattern that will work with the long color repeats. This one was always intended to be a feather and fan shawl, but my first try was garter stitch based and the fabric was too dense. I'll try that idea again with a lighter yarn. 

 Yarn: Caron Big Cakes, Nightberry
Pattern: Old Shale 

I didn't wind up using a pattern that I can link to, but it's a traditional stitch and very easy, assuming you either keep track of your counting better than I do or use stitch markers.

Cast on 60 stitches, or any multiple of twenty stitches, placing a stitch marker after each twenty stitches

Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Purl
Row 3: Knit one, (knit two together) three times, (yarn over knit one) six times, (knit two together) three times, knit one...which will put you at a stitch marker. Repeat until the end of the row. 
Row 4: Knit

Repeat until the shawl is as long as you want. One skein of Caron Big Cakes gave me a shawl that's about 15" x 60."
