Clue #4 - Time to add some colour...

In this clue we crochet 20 new rows with lots of exciting techniques, and we will be working our stripes with 3 beautiful colours.

As usual, you will find videos to assist you at the end of the clue. But if you still have questions, you can always leave them using the form at the bottom of the page!

First a little information

PATTERN:
In clue #4 we are working with diagram A.4a and A.4b. A.4a shows how row begins. NOTE: The beginning of rows is drawn above each other in the same diagram even though they are worked alternately the right and left side of the shawl and not above each other.

STRIPES:
Cut thread after each row, unless the next row has the same colour. Fasten the threads in the side when you have finished.
ROWS 1-3: powder (colour a)
ROW 4: mustard (colour b)
ROWS 5-7: beige (colour e)
ROWS 8-9: powder (colour a)
ROWS 10-12: beige (colour e)
ROW 13: mustard (colour b)
ROWS 14-15: powder (colour a)
ROWS 16-18: beige (colour e)
ROW 19: mustard (colour b)
ROW 20: powder (colour a)

COLOUR CHANGE:
When switching colours, work as follows: Work last stitch on row with the first colour, but wait with last yarn over and pull through, switch to next colour and work the last yarn over and pull through on the last stitch with this colour, then work next row.

CROCHET INFO:
Information between two * are repeated every time it says *-* in the pattern.

If you are experienced, follow the brief description and diagrams A.4a+b which you will find under. If you need more help to get started continue to read the clue below.

Brief version

Continue working STRIPES – see explanation above, and pattern A.4b (A.4a shows how every row begins and are worked in addition to the stitches in A.4b). Read COLOUR CHANGE! NOTE: To get a better overview of which row to work in the pattern and stripes, put a mark in the piece here and the next row is counted as row 1. Meaning first row in A.4b = Row 1 in stripes.

Diagram for Clue #4

= 1 chain stitch
= 1 treble crochet around chain stitch/chain stitch space
= From right side: 1 treble crochet into back loop of stitch. From wrong side: 1 treble crochet into front loop of stitch
= From right side: 1 double crochet into back of stitch. From wrong side: 1 double crochet into front of stitch
= increase (with the same stitch shown in the chart) on each side of the marking threads on row with arrow.
= Work 3 chain stitches on beginning of row
= Work 1 chain stitch on beginning of row
= start here

Need help to get started?

Here’s a more detailed description of how to start with Clue #4. We have marked where we are working in the diagram with red.

ROW 1 (= right side): Work 3 chain stitches (A.4a), then work A.4b as follows: * 2 treble crochets around first/next chain stitch space, 3 treble crochets around next chain stitch space *, work from *-* entire row = 120 treble crochets.


Without working, add 12 marking threads in piece as follows: add 1 marking thread after the first 5 stitches, then add the next 11 marking threads with 10 stitches between each marking thread, there are now 5 treble crochet left on row after the last marking thread. The marking thread follows along while working the piece and will almost have the same stitch numbers on each side.


Turn work and work row 2, 3 and 4 according to diagram, A.4a and A.4b, - read COLOUR CHANGE.


Turn work, work Row 5 (ARROW 1) and increase as follows: Increase 1 treble crochet on each side of the marking threads by working 1 treble crochet extra around the chain stitch space (=24 stitches increased) = 144 treble crochets on row.


Turn work and work rows 6-10. Continue following stripes – see above and increase on row 7 (ARROW 2, increase as follows: increase 1 double crochet on each side of the marking threads by working 2 double crochets in the same stitch = 24 stitches increased) = 168 double crochets on row and on row 10 (ARROW 3, increase as follows: increase 1 treble crochet on each side of the marking threads by working 2 treble crochets in 1 stitch = 24 stitches increased) = 192 treble crochets on row.


Turn work, and work rows 11-15. Continue following stripes – see above and increase on row 12 (ARROW 4 and increase as follows: increase 1 double crochet on each side of the marking threads by working 2 double crochets in 1 stitch = 24 stitches increased) = 216 double crochets on row.


Turn work and work rows 16-20. Continue following stripes – see above and increase on row 16 (ARROW 5 and increase as follows: Increase 1 treble crochet on each side of the marking threads by working 2 treble crochets in 1 stitch = 24 stitches increased) = 240 treble crochets on row and on row 18 (ARROW 6 and increase as follows: Increase 1 double crochet by working 2 double crochets in 1 stitch on each side of the marking threads = 24 stitches increased) = 264 double crochets on row.


Finished!

Clue 4 is now finished and the piece measures approx. 39 cm between the chain stitch ring and the middle of the last row worked when all 20 rows have been worked. The picture below shows how piece looks. Now you can look forward to the next clue! Just make sure you don't forget to send pictures of your progress to our Gallery!

Ran out of colour E too early? You can use colour G instead in row 18.

Er der et lige maskeantal ved enden af hver række og dette uden at tælle vendemaske/r med? Jeg har placeret maskemarkører med 10 masker imellem og arbejdet mig op. Nu er jeg så kommet til række 5 og kan overhovedet ikke komme videre. Jeg har 40 V stg i rækken fra række 4 - er dette korrekt? Nu vil jeg starte på række 5 og kan ikke, ligegyldigt hvordan jeg regner mig frem til det, nå til 144 masker på rækken med udt i nogenlunde lige orden?

Por favor en la fila 5, podeis especificar el orden de los arcos en los q van los aumentos?

Hola Beatriz. Los aumentos se trabajan como antes a cada lado del marcapuntos ( o el hilo marcador).

En esta pista tengo problemas al finalizar cada fila. Me hace un salto y.la parte recta del semicirculo del chal hace como escalones. Debo terminar cada fila con algún punto adicional al igual q la empezamos con las cadenetas de subida??

28.05.2018 - 22:36

DROPS Design answered:

Hola Beatriz. Hay que trabajar según el patrón. El último punto de la fila se trabaja en el último punto de la fila anterior. Puedes mirar cómo en los vídeos. No hay escalones en este patrón.

También se puede distribuir así: 3*3*3*3*3*3*4*3*3*3*3*3*3, 40/12=3,33 ya que en las explicaciones pone que casi siempre vamos a tener el mismo número de puntos a cada lado. It can also be distributed like this: 3*3*3*3*3*3*4*3*3*3*3*3*3. 40/12=3,33 In the explanations it says that we will almost always have the same number of points on each side.

María me he confundido, sólo dividía el chal en 12 partes, y son13 partes, así que puedes distribuirlos así: 2*3*3*3*3*4*4*4*3*3*3*3*2. Perdona, éste chal me está volviendo loca

Mar: maar dan gebruik je maar 11 markeerders. /But that are only 11 stitchmarkers in stead of 12 on row 5

DROPS Design answered:

Hallo Yvette, De markeerdraden plaats je gelijk al in de eerste toer van clue 4. Tussen de markeerdraden zitten 10 steken/stokjes en vanaf elke zijkant zitten 5 stokjes. In totaal 12 markeerders. De markeerders neem je mee tijdens het haken in de hoogte. Door het patroon is het niet altijd mogelijk om een gelijk aantal steken tussen de markeerders te houden, maar probeer het aantal steken dat er tussen zit wel goed verdeeld te houden tussen de markeerders. De markeerdraden zijn niet in het telpatroon als symbool aangegeven. De ster in het telpatroon geeft aan waar je moet beginnen. (zie verklaring symbolen)

Hoeveel \../ tussen elke markeerder in rij 5? Volgens video 3 tussen markeerder 1 en 2 maar dan kom ik niet uit. Bij foto's van anderen zitten er soms 3 en soms 4 tussen. Graag opgave van de hele rij. In volgende clue graag duidelijke aanwijzingen tussen welke steken een markeerder komt

DROPS Design answered:

Hoi Yvette, In toer 5 meerder je aan elke kant van elke markeerdraad, dat betekent dat er na toer 5, 12 steken tussen elke markeerdraad zitten en 6 steken voor de eerste en na de laatste markeerdraad.

I\'ve figured out the first increase row, however, I had to pull the thread lines out. Far easier to move the stitch markers as opposed to dealing with 12 bits of hanging thread! I'm experienced with reading charts and this presentation is just too confusing. If it was my first chart, it would be my last one. Hopefully, when and if this pattern is published in full, the whole chart will be presented in a user friendly way.
