SHAWL:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from the bottom towards the top.
Cast on 19 sts on circular needle size 5 mm with 1 thread Alpaca and 2 threads Kid-Silk.
Continue as follows (first row = RS): M.1, 1 GARTER ST - see above, M.3. On row 3 inc 1 st each side of the garter st in the middle, and repeat the inc on every 4th row a total of 4 times. Inc by making 1 YO, on next row K YO into back of loop to avoid a hole. Work inc sts in garter st. After 1 vertical repeat of M.1/M.3 there are 27 sts on needle. Insert 1 marker after 12 sts and 1 marker after 15 sts (3 sts between markers = the middle of shawl).
Continue as follows (first row = RS):
M.1, M.2, (marker), 3 stocking sts, (marker), M.2 (mirrored), M.3 (= 1 inc st in M.2 towards M.1/M3 on every 6th row).
Work 1 vertical repeat of M.2 like this and now continue as follows from RS: M.1 (continue as before), P sts on row until 22 sts remain before marker, M.2B, (marker), 3 stocking sts as before, (marker), M.2B (mirrored), P sts on row until M.3 remain, M.3 (continue as before).
AT THE SAME TIME continue to inc 1 st towards M.1/M.3 each side on every 6th row as before. Work 2 vertical repeats of M.2B like this. There are now 3 ½ leaves each side with 3 stocking sts in the middle of piece.
Continue as follows:
M.1 (continue as before), P sts on row until 22 sts remain before marker, M.2C, (marker), 3 stocking sts as before, (marker), M.2C (mirrored), P sts on row until M.3 remain, M.3 (continue as before).
AT THE SAME TIME continue to inc 1 st towards M.1/M.3 each side on every 6th row as before.
AT THE SAME TIME when you reach the arrow in M.2C (row with arrow included = from WS) cast off the 3 stocking sts in the middle of piece on next row (from RS) and complete each side separately.

LEFT SIDE:
Continue in M.2C (mirrored) and M.3 at the side, at the same time continue to inc 1 st towards M.3 on every 6th row as before. AT THE SAME TIME cast off 2 sts at the beg of every row from RS. Continue like this until only sts in M.3 remain on needle. Complete M.3 = 9 sts on needle. Cast off.

RIGHT SIDE:
Continue in M.2C (mirrored) and M.1 at the side, at the same time continue to inc 1 st towards M.1 on every 6th row as before. AT THE SAME TIME cast off 2 sts at the beg of every row from WS. Continue like this until only sts in M.1 remain on needle. Complete M.1 = 9 sts on needle. Cast off.

Bonjour au premier rang endroit je tricote M1 1 maille point mousse et je tricote directement M3 où je dois tricoté d'abord M2 merci.

DROPS Design 06.03.2019 kl. 13:54:

Bonjour Mme Lelarge, au tout début du châle tricotez M.1, 1 m point mousse, M.3. Quand M.1 et M.3 seront tricotés 1 fois en hauteur, vous tricoterez ainsi: M.1, M.2, 3 m jersey, M2 (en sens inverse), M.3. Bon tricot!

Natasja 22.01.2018 - 00:09:

Hi there. How do i knit the last row of M1 when i just casted off from previous row and now need to knit the last 9 sts in M1? Best regards Natasja.

DROPS Design 22.01.2018 kl. 00:19:

Dear Natasja, yes, the last 9 stitches should be knitted according to the last row of pattern M.1, which should be a WS row, where you knit 5P and 4K stitch. Happy Knitting!

Joli modèle, Joli point. MAIS EXPLICATIONS VRAIMENT NULLES, INCOMPREHENSIBLES. POURQUOI NE PAS PRODUIRE LE DIAGRAMME EN ENTIER, GENRE GRILLE, PLUTOT QUE DES MORCEAUX..... EN PUZZLE. DECEVANT.

DROPS Design 06.06.2017 kl. 09:17:

Bonjour Mme Paoli, pour toute aide à la réalisation de ce modèle, vous pouvez volontiers poser votre question ici, ou bien vous adresser au magasin où vous avez acheté votre laine ou encore au forum DROPS (inscription requise). Bon tricot!

De omslagdoek wordt niet begonnen bij de hals middenachter en eindigt niet met de onderrand. Maar wordt begonnen met de punt aan de onderkant en eindig aan de bovenkant. 2 extra steekmarkeerders, tussen midden- en randpatroon is heel handig. Door verkorte naalden te breien ipv 2 steken afkanten, dan nog 1 naald breien op de goede zijde en dan alle steken afkanten, geeft een mooiere kant. Tenslotte heb ik een mooie dichte punt door de 19 opzetsteken samen te naaien.

Druvent 23.09.2015 - 07:39:

Ensuite je dois tricoter M1/M2, 3m jersey, M2/M3 mais comme M 2 contient plus de rangs que M1 ou M3,que faut-il faire à partir du 20 eme rang de M1 ou M3 ?

DROPS Design 23.09.2015 kl. 11:05:

Quand M1 et M3 sont faits, reprenez-les au 1er rang, et continuez M2 en même temps. Bon tricot!

Druvent 23.09.2015 - 07:32:

Bonjour, j'ai encore une question. J'ai tricoté M1 et M3, j'ai 27 mailles avec les marqueurs en position 12 et 15. Premier rang, Je dois donc tricoter M1 et M2, 3 mailles jersey, M2 en sens inverse et M3 (1 augmentation dans M2 côté M1/M3 tous les 6 rangs. Quelle est le type d'augmentation ? Doit-on la faire dès le premier rang ?Où faut-il la placer ? Faut-il tricoter l'augmentation d'une manière particulière sur l'envers? Merci par avance

DROPS Design 23.09.2015 kl. 11:01:

Bonjour Mme Druvent, ces augmentations figurent dans M2 (au début du 3ème rang puis tous les 6 rangs: 1 jeté avant M2 (après M1) et 1 jeté après M2 (avant M3) à tricoter torse à l'envers au rang suivant (sur l'envers). Bon tricot!

Druvent 20.09.2015 - 17:35:

Bonjour, je suis un peu perdue dans les explications sur les augmentations dès le premier rang. Ce que j'ai compris, c'est que les augmentations autour de la maille "mousse" du départ sont des jetés qui sont fait à l'endroit et au retour sur le rang envers, il faut tricoter une maille torse endroit. Ensuite sur les jetés effectués dès le premier rang sur l'endroit, il faut les tricoter au point mousse à l'envers. Est-ce que j'ai bien compris ? D'avance merci

DROPS Design 21.09.2015 kl. 09:17:

Bonjour Mme Druvent, on commence par tricoter M1, 1 m point mousse, M3, et on augmente à partir du 3ème rang 1 m de chaque côté de la m point mousse du milieu (= 2 augm par rang d'augm) (ce jeté se tricote torse à l'end sur l'envers). Les jetés des diagrammes se tricotent à l'envers sur l'envers. Bon tricot!

Joyce 01.08.2015 - 06:19:

Hello again. I just asked the question regarding the border for this pattern. The picture I have is not clear so I wasn't seeing it. I just figured it out. M1 and M3 are leaves that make the border as you knit the shawl. I just answered my own question. Thanks for this lovely pattern. I am excited about making it. I like a challenge, and this pattern, with the grafts, gives me one. It is a little difficult to follow, but I'm figuring it out. Thanks, Joyce

Joyce 31.07.2015 - 20:41:

Hello, I love this shawl and am attempting to make it. One thing i don't see in reading the pattern is directions for the scalloped border. Is there a seperate pattern for the border? Thank you, Joyce

Tracy 06.01.2014 - 09:00:

DROPS Design 06.01.2014 kl. 10:08:

Dear Tracy, there is only diagrams to this pattern. You will find diagram text above diag, 1 square= 1 st x 1 row (all rows are shown, those from RS as well as from WS). Start reading on the bottom corner right towards the left from RS, and from left towards the right from WS. Happy knitting!
