NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
Knitting gauge: 13 sts x 24 rows on needles size 6 mm / US 10 1 thread of each quality in seed sts = 10 x 10 cm / 4'' x 4''.

Seed sts: 1st row: K1, P1. 2nd row: *K over P and P over K*. Repeat the 2nd row.

Increasing tips-1: Inc. at the end of each row as follows: K 2 sts into the last sts, incorporate new sts into the pattern.

Increasing tips-2: Inc. inside 3 garter sts as follows:
Make a yo, on returning row twist and K the yo (to twist the st, knit into back part of st instead of the front part)

Measurement tips: Because of the weight of the yarn, all measurements should be made whilst the garment is hanging.

Garter sts back and forth: K on all rows.

Cast on 7 sts on needle size 6 mm / US 10 with 1 strand of each quality.
Work in seed sts at the same time inc. 1 st at the end of each row – read increasing tips 1 - until the piece measures approx. 66 cm / 26'' – see measurement tips.
The width at the top of the shawl in now approx. 127 cm / 50''.
Bind off loosely.

Crochet an edge with hook size 5mm/ H/8 with 1 strand of each quality down along one side as follows: 1 sc in the first st at the top of one side, *2 ch, skip over 2 sts and 1 sc in the following st*, repeat from *-* = 39-41 ( divisible with 2 + 1) ch–spaces – make sure to finish with a sc at the bottom corner of the casting on edge.
Continue to crochet on the casting on edge as follows: *2 ch, skip 1 st, 1 sc in the following st*, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times = 3 ch spaces along the casting on edge. Continue to crochet up along the other side as done for the first side – making sure to finish with 1 sc at the top corner = 39-41 ( divisible with 2+1) ch spaces.
Continue to crochet on the binding off edge as follows: *2 ch, skip 2 sts, 1 sc*, repeat from *-* and finish with a sl st in the sc from beg. of round.

Knit along both of the sides with circular needle size 5.5 mm / US 9 and 1 strand of each quality.
Pick up 3 sts each ch space as follows: 1 st, 1 yo, 1 st = 243 – 261 sts (divisible with 6 + 3).
Now please read all of the next section:
Continue the next row as follows (seen from the RS):
3 garter sts – see explanation above, *K3, P3*, repeat from *-* and finish with K3 and 3 garter sts. At the same time inc. 1 st each side inside the 3 garter sts – read increasing tips 2. Incorporate new sts into the rib as you proceed.
When the edge measures 5 cm / 2'' inc. 1 st each side - in each of the 3 bottom Purl sections, repeat this inc. when the rib measures 9 cm / 3½'' = 5 P sts in each of the 3 bottom purl sections.
Bind off loosely when the Rib border measures 12 cm / 4¾''.

I skriver nok å flot, at man blot kan bruge omregneren til at finde alternativt garn. Dette er ikke korrekt. Omregneren kan ikke finde ud af det, når der er tale om to forskellige slags garn. Selvom man angiver at det er to tråde af Vivaldi, kan den ikke finde et alternativ. I bedes derfor angive alternativt garn, tak.

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 11:22:

Hei Anni. Når du skal finne alternativer for 2 garn, må du skrive dem inn hver for deg. Vivaldi tilhører garngruppe C og kan derfor byttes med andre garn i den gruppen (feks Air), men det som gir likest resultat er Brushed Alpaca Silk. Cotton Merino tilhører garngruppe A, og kan byttes med et hvilket som helst garn i denne gruppen, men om du vil ha et bomullsgarn kan du bruke Safran. Du finner en overiskt over garngruppene her. Vi har nå testet begge disse garnene i garnkalkulatoren og det gikk fint- men de må som sagt puttes inn individuelt. God fornøyelse

Diana 16.09.2018 - 20:27:

Hi, as both yarns are not available any more I'd like to knit the shawl with just one yarn. Would you be able to let me know what options there are and how many grams I would need?

DROPS Design 17.09.2018 kl. 09:32:

Dear Diana, you can use our yarn converter to find an alternative for each yarn - read more about alternatives here. Happy knitting!

Bill Burris 18.02.2018 - 01:16:

The way I understand this, after picking up stitches for the ribbing we begin with 3 knit stitches and end with 3 knit stitches all along so that they are always garter stitching at both ends. Do we increase in the garters starting with the first three knits or knit 3, ribbing, knit 3 with an increase inside the three then increase at the other end on the return trip? Also do we increase in the garters on every round?

DROPS Design 19.02.2018 kl. 09:39:

Dear Mrs Burris, you will increase after the first 3 sts in garter st on row and before the 3 sts in garter st at the end of row. You increase every other row (this will be added in the pattern) to the end. These new sts will be worked in rib. Then after 5 cm and 9 cm increase also in the 3 bottom P-sections. Happy knitting!

Bill 05.12.2017 - 17:11:

Where the instructions say to cast on 7 stitches with 1 strand of each quality, are you knitting with two yarns at the same time?

DROPS Design 06.12.2017 kl. 08:49:

Dear Bill, correct, you will work with 2 yarns at the same time all the way, ie with Cotton Viscose and Vivaldi. Happy knitting!

Athanasia 28.04.2017 - 12:57:

Hello again! Why is it necessary to chrochet the borders? Can I pick up the stiches without the chrochet part? Thank you

DROPS Design 28.04.2017 kl. 13:52:

Dear Athanasia, crocheting the edge first will help you to pick up sts evenly and will also make a nice eyelet row between shawl and ribbing. Happy knitting!

Athanasia 06.04.2017 - 12:47:

Hello, I have two questions to make. 1. The crochet is done to the three sides of the shawl or just the two sides where the pick-up stiches are made. 2. I don't understand the incorporation of the stiches at the rib. At 5 cm it says add 2 st. at the bottom 3 purl. Ok, I understand that. The 3 st become 5 add we add 6 st in total. At 9 cm says add 2st at the bottom 3 purl. Does it mean that the 5 st now becomes 7? Thank you

DROPS Design 06.04.2017 kl. 13:53:

Dear Athanasia, 1) you crochet the ch-spaces around the shawl, ie along the 3 sides. 2) You will have to inc 1 st each of the the bottom 3 P-sections only, so that you will have P4 after 5 cm in these P-sections and P5 after 9 cm in these P-sections (but still P3 in every other P sections, inc are only made at the bottom tip), pattern will be edited. Happy knitting!

Bonjour, Il y a deux choses que je ne comprends pas très bien dans les instructions: 1- quand vous dites "avec 1 fil de chaque qualité" ça veut dire que l'on double le fil? 2 - La bordure, il faut la tricoter à part et l'assembler ensuite? Est-il possible de réaliser ce modèle sans savoir crocheter? Merci de votre aide, Mae

DROPS Design 13.12.2016 kl. 08:47:

Bonjour Mae, le châle se réalise entièrement avec 2 fils: 1 fil Cotton Viscose + 1 fil Vivaldi. La bordure se réalise au tricot, en relevant les mailles le long des 2 diagonales du châle. Bon tricot!

Rebekah 29.04.2016 - 11:35:

I'm having trouble understanding how to pick up the stitches for the rib border - can anyone help?

DROPS Design 29.04.2016 kl. 11:44:

Dear Rebekah, the sts are picked up in the crocheted ch-spaces along the 2 diagonal of the shawl, in each ch-space work as follows; pick up 1 st, YO, pick 1 st (= 3 sts in each ch-space) - make sure your number of sts is divisible with 6 + 3. Happy knitting!

Brigitte 04.01.2015 - 22:23:

Bonsoir, pouvez vous me dire par quel endroit du châle on commence ? faut il utiliser l'aiguille circulaire au début ? merci de vos réponses

DROPS Design 05.01.2015 kl. 09:34:

Bonjour Brigitte, le châle se tricote de bas en haut, en commençant par les 7 m de la pointe (on fait la bordure à la fin). On tricote sur aiguille circulaire en allers et retours pour avoir suffisamment de place pour loger toutes les mailles quand les augm. sont faites, vous pouvez utiliser l'aig. circ. dès le début ou la prendre quand vous avez trop de mailles pour vos aiguilles droites, au choix. Bon tricot!
