How to knit a shawl that looks like a sweater hanging on your shoulders

This shawl is knitted in two halves, and than sewn together in the middle of the back.

It is excellent for working away a none known amount of leftovers. take two matching balls, or both sides of the one ball you have, cast on 4 st with one thread and cast on another 4 st with another thread. Both parts are knitted in the same way thus you knit 2 different parts. So repeat the pattern on both parts even though i will only write it once. Through the whole work i used on both sides a similar thread. Thus both sides are the same but not a 100%. I did not knit the two parts as opposites but knitted both at the same direction.

K 4, turn , k 4 for 3 more rows./ k 3 loop over needle knit 1, knit 5 over 3 more rows./ Repeat this adding a loop every 4th row until both parts are 49 cm long.

Knit the whole row +4 st, turn and knit back, turn knit all st +4 [you now add 4 stitches every second row ] until your parts are 59 cm long . [if the receiver of the shawl is taller you might add more the idea was to cover my my hips] .

Now knit the same stitches/ and every 5-7 cm add a short row = knit 6-10 st from the bottom up turn and knit those same st. down to the bottom again [so the bottom will flare a bit ]/ When you reached the size of half your back. Seam the two parts in any way you like, i have tried several manners and all worked well for me. After seaming the two parts i crocheted around the whole shawl .
