Pattern instructions

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.
See diagram M.1. Diagram shows the pattern from RS.

TIP FOR PICKING UP STS (applies to fig.1): (Yarn used in fig.1-3 is another quality – thicker to make picture clearer). Pick up the long, loose part under st on needle. When picking up tighten st on needle slightly.

Worked in a twisted ring from the middle of piece towards the sides - i.e. piece worked from top down and from bottom up at the same time. All measurements apply to the whole piece (and not from the middle towards the side).
Place circular needle size 5.5 mm / US 9 and 6.5 mm/US 10½ tog and cast on 151-169-187-199-217-235 sts with 1 thread Alpaca + 1 thread Kid-Silk (= 2 threads) – use the 2 needles to make cast on row elastic. Remove 1 needle and slip all sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7, sts on needle are now very loose.
Now pick up 1 new st in bottom edge of each st on needle without knitting the st on needle, but do not pick up in the first and the last st on needle (see fig.1) – NOTE: Move the sts to the end of the circular needle where you don't have the working yarn, pick up st with the other end of circular needle. When pick up is complete the circular needle will sit in a twisted ring - see fig.2 = 300-336-372-396-432-468 sts.
Insert a marker at beg of round (= mid front). Now work M.1 – beg with st sitting on point of needle = first st on cast on row – the st picked up in bottom edge of this st will automatically be at the point of needle later on round. After a couple of rounds the ring will become more evident - see fig.3. AT THE SAME TIME after 1 round in M.1 change to circular needle size 5.5 mm / US 9 and continue in M.1. When piece measures approx 24-24-27-27-30-30 cm / 9½"-9½"-10 5/8"-10 5/8"-11 3/4"-11 3/4" - finish after a full repeat of M.1 – insert a marker 135-153-171-183-201-219 sts after mid front (= marker A) and a marker 30 sts after marker A (= marker B). Work next round as follows: * K1, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K1, P1, 1 YO, P1, 1 YO, P1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 22-25-28-30-33-36 times (3 sts now remain before marker A), K1, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K1, * P3, K3 *, repeat from *-* a total of 5 times (= between A and B), P1, 1 YO, P1, 1 YO, P1, * K1, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K1, P1, 1 YO, P1, 1 YO, P1 *, repeat from *-* a total of 22-25-28-30-33-36 times (= end of round) = 480-540-600-640-700-760 sts. Continue in rib K5/P5, but work P3/K3 on the 30 sts between marker A and B.
When rib measures 4 cm / 1½'' bind off with K over K and P over P – the shawl measures approx 33-33-36-36-39-39 cm / 13"-13"-14 1/4"-14 1/4"-15 1/4"-15 1/4".
Mark the inside of shawl between marker A and B – this is mid back when shawl is worn.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= K
= P

The link isn't working for me. Thank you for replying so promptly. Sarah

Hi Sarah, I edited the link and it should work properly now.

Will this moebius cast on leave a row of holes in the middle of the finished project? I just watched the tutorial video and the cast on left a row of holes, looks like yarn overs, right in the middle. But I don't see the row of holes in the finished project as shown on your website. Thanks, Sarah

DROPS Design 15.12.2017 kl. 08:47:

Dear Sarah, there shouldn't be any holes in the middle, look at this video and read text below to manage to cast on the sts (remember to use the continental cast on technique, and maybe try to avoid too loose sts when casting on). Happy knitting!

Elizabeth, por el momento no está disponible la traducción a español. Sin embargo, absolutamente todos los patrones tienen la versión en inglés, en caso te sea de utilidad.
