Garter sts (back and forth on needle): Knit all rows.

Pattern: see diagram M.1 The diagram is seen from the right side.

Increasing tips: Inc from the RS immediately after the knit sts by picking up st from previous row and P into back of st. Make the next inc right before the knit sts to alternate the inc to the left and the right of the P sts.

Cast on 25 sts on needle size 9 mm with Eskimo. Knit 2 rows garter sts (1st row = RS) and continue in M.1 until piece measures approx 52 cm – adjust to 2 rows after a cable. Knit 2 rows garter sts and cast off.

After 3 rows in Rib inc 1 st in each P section (seen from the RS) on every 4th row a total of 3 times, Rib measures 7 cm – see Increasing tips. Cast off loosely in Rib.

Continue in Rib-2 with 1 edge st and K1 each side (seen from the right side) Cast off loosely in Rib when band measures approx 2.5 cm.

Il doit faire 52cm au debut ou avec les bandes de boutonnage.merci

DROPS Design 22.10.2014 kl. 12:41:

Bonjour Mme Bossard, les bordures de boutonnage sont relevées le long du petit côté et mesurent 2.5 cm chacune (cf § "Bande de boutonnage"). Bon tricot!

Bossard 22.10.2014 - 10:47:

Bonjour il fait 52cm de large sans compter les bordures ou avec?les 25M de depart ne mesure pas 52 CM!!!

DROPS Design 22.10.2014 kl. 12:39:

Bonjour Mme Bossard, les 25 m deviennent ensuite la hauteur car on tricote cette partie dans le sens de la longueur, et on tricote pendant 52 cm (tour de cou) sur ces 25 m, puis les mailles de bordures des devants sont relevées sur le côté. Si votre échantillon est conforme, vous devriez avoir le même résultat que sur la photo. Bon tricot!

Bossard 21.10.2014 - 15:44:

Bonjour.combien doit il faire de largeur.Merci

DROPS Design 21.10.2014 kl. 17:13:

Bonjour Mme Bossard, le tour de cou mesure env. 52 cm de largeur autour de cou + la bordure de boutonnage, la bordure du bas, tricotée de haut en bas, est plus large (augmentations). Bon tricot!

Hallo. Ben nu bij de meerdering aan de lange kant, deze moet plaats vinden in elk av. stukje. Houdt dit in dat ik aan het eind van de nld. 8 st. heb gemeerderd, of is het de bedoeling dat ik 3 steken meerder in deze nld. maar dan krijg ik stroken van 4 av. en 3 av. Bij voorbaat mijn vriendelijke dank.

DROPS Design 29.11.2013 kl. 17:33:

Hallo. Je meerdert 1 st in elk gedeelte met 3 av in totaal 3 keer. Dat betekent dat je aan het eind 3 r, 6 av hebt voor de boordsteek

Hello there, I am making this neck warmer, but sadly 100 g of colour no 31 was not enough. I would like to know how much yarn is really needed as I will have to purchase again. Thank you.

DROPS Design 14.10.2013 kl. 09:48:

Dear Mrs Campos, 200 g are required for neck warmer, pattern correction will be made as soon as possible. Thank you. Happy knitting!

Superfint! Gillar verkligen kragen. Känns som det blir mitt nästa projekt om det kommer mönster här på sidan.

Bente Hermansen 28.07.2006 - 20:26:

Smart. Den kunne jeg godt tænke mig at få opskrift på.

27.07.2006 - 14:01:

Anita 17.07.2006 - 16:47:
