Due to number of sts knit back and forth on circular needle.
Using both ends of circular needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 (to make sure the edge becomes elastic) cast on 169 sts with Alpaca. Remove 1 needle and K3 rows (1st row = wrong side).

Work next row as follows (1st row = right side):
Knit the outermost 8 sts each side in garter sts throughout.
When dec/inc evenly on row as explained below, do not dec/inc over the 8 sts each side.
Work chart M.1 (over sts between the 8 sts each side).
When piece measures approx 19 cm / 7½'' – adjust after 1 full repeat of pattern – work M.7, at the same time on the 1st row of M.7, dec 26 sts evenly on row = 143 sts.
After M/7 work M.5 as follows starting from the right side:
M.5A (= 3 sts), M.5B over the next 120 sts and then M.5C (= 4 sts).
Continue the pattern like this until piece measures approx 29 cm / 11½" – stop after 1 full repeat of pattern.
Now work M.7, at the same time inc 3 sts evenly on the last row of M.7 = 146 sts.
After M.7 work M.6.
When piece measures approx 64 cm / 25'' - stop after 1 full repeat of pattern – work M.7 again, at the same time dec 3 sts evenly on 1st row = 143 sts.
After M.7 work M.5 starting from the right side: M.5A (= 3 sts), M.5B over the next 120 sts and M.5C (= 4 sts).
Continue the pattern like this until piece measures approx 84 cm / 33'' - stop after 1 full repeat of pattern.
K 2 rows and then bind off loosely from the wrong side.

Good morning/good afternoon I would like to know if there is a more detailed written version of this pattern as I do not like to knit with graphs. Thanking you

Hi Lynette, I am afraid we do not have a more detailed written version of this pattern at the moment. Kind regards

A follow up to my question on section M5: for rows 3, 5, and 7 of the pattern do you still work the first 3 stitches, then repeat the pattern for the next 6 stitches over 120 stitches, then work the last 4 stitches in the pattern?

DROPS Design 05.10.2018 kl. 11:49:

Dear Mrs Giler, yes you will repeat the pattern every row like this: M.5A over the first 3 sts, then repeat M.5B over the next 120 sts and finish with M.5C over the next 4 sts. On row 7, work the last st in M.5A tog with the first st in M.5B, then work the last st in M.5B tog with the first 2 sts in next M.5B/in M.5C. Happy knitting!

Section M5 is a 13-stitch pattern, but it\'s worked over 127 stitches. After 9 repeats I have 10 stitches left over. Am I just supposed to do the first 10 stitches of the pattern at the end of each row?

DROPS Design 05.10.2018 kl. 07:29:

Dear Mrs Giler, M.5 is worked as follows: M.5A (= 3 sts), repeat M.5 B a total of 20 times (= over the next 120 sts), finish with M.5C (= 4 sts) = 3+120+4 = 127 sts. Happy knitting!

Hilde Harper 18.09.2017 - 08:27:

Would it be possible to get written instructions for each diagram? Many thanks, Hilde

DROPS Design 18.09.2017 kl. 09:32:

Dear Mrs Harper, there are only diagrams to this pattern, you"ll find here a video showing how to knit M1, this will help you to read the remaining diagrams. Read more about diagrams here and do not hesitate to contact your DROPS store for any further assistance with diagrams. Happy knitting!

Hej, Skulle gärna vilja göra denna filt lite bredare. Sitter och klurar på hur många maskor jag ska öka med för att få jämna rapporter, men får inte ihop det riktigt. Tacksam för hjälp! Hälsningar, Ulrika

DROPS Design 18.09.2017 kl. 16:34:

Vill du ha en bredare filt bör du först börja med att lägga upp maskor så maskantalet blir delbart med mönsterrapporten i M.1, dvs du kan lägga upp t.ex. 17 eller 34 maskor mer än det står i beskrivningen. Innan varje nytt diagram bör du sedan öka/minska maskor så att varje mönster går upp. Kom även ihåg att du behöver mera garn till en större filt.

Hei, neulotaanko M5 kohdassa tuo M5A ja M5C (ja niiden väliin tuo M5B) joka kerroksella? Eli ei siis niin, että vain ensimmäisellä kerroksella neulottaisiin nuo M5a ja b.

DROPS Design 17.03.2017 kl. 15:29:

Hei! Kaikki mallineuleen kerrokset neulotaan kuten tuo ensimmäinen selitetty kerros, eli M.5A, M.5B ja M.5C.

Dot 18.08.2016 - 16:14:

Hej! Jeg skal til at strikke M5. I opskriften står der "M5 strikkes således fra vrangen..." Men jeg er på det tidspunkt nået til min retside. Når jeg dobbelt tjekker med papporterne lander jeg også på min retside. Da både M1 og M7 har et lige antal pinde, og starter (efter opskriften) på retsiden, må den også afslutte på vrangsider og derved må M5 starte på retsiden igen. Eller er der noget jeg har overset eller ikke har styr på? Venlig Hilsen DL

DROPS Design 07.09.2016 kl. 14:25:

Hej Dot. Du har ret. Du skal starte fra retten, det er en lille skrivefejl i det danske mönster. Vi skal faa det rettet. Tak.

Ulla 18.08.2016 - 15:38:

Hej Dot! Den danska översättningen är fel, det ska vara rätsidan!

Linda Jamieson 08.06.2016 - 22:47:

Can you write out in words the first row of M1 please.

DROPS Design 09.06.2016 kl. 07:50:

Dear Linda, diagrams have to be read from bottom to top, from right to left, so you've to work the first row of M.1 as follow: K2tog (3 times), (yo, k1) 5 times, yo, k2tog (3 times). Happy knitting!
