While knitting this shawl I quit my job, a pandemic happened, and the Lord taught me how to rely on Him.

I supply, declares the Lord. 

Not man
nor rain

Genesis 2:5-6

How you shawl will look after increases and pattern repeats

You will increase after knitting your boarders, increase in the middle and increase before knitting your boarder on the other end.

Repeat this increase pattern until you have 7 stitches between your markers. Than add it to your pattern repeat and add another marker.

Bind off loosely and weave in all ends.
