Cast on 38 sts on needle size 5 mm with Nepal. K 1 row from RS and K 1 row from WS. Now K 1 row from RS, AT THE SAME TIME inc 12 sts evenly (do not inc on the 2 sts each side) = 50 sts. P 1 row from WS and continue in M.1. After 1 vertical repeat of M.1 K 1 row from RS, AT THE SAME TIME dec 12 sts evenly (do not dec on the 2 sts each side) = 38 sts. K 1 row from WS and K 1 row from RS. Now cast off from WS with K sts.

Cast on 38 sts on needle size 5 mm with Nepal. K 1 row from RS and K 1 row from WS. Now K 1 row from RS, AT THE SAME TIME inc 7 sts evenly (do not inc on the 2 sts each side) = 45 sts. P 1 row from WS and continue in M.2 until square measures approx 1 cm less than square 1. K 1 row from RS, AT THE SAME TIME dec 7 sts evenly (do not dec on the 2 sts each side) = 38 sts. K 1 row from WS and K 1 row from RS. Now cast off from WS with K sts.

SQUARE 3:
Cast on 38 sts on needle size 5 mm with Nepal. K 1 row from RS, K 1 row from WS, K 1 row RS and P 1 row from WS. Now continue in M.3 with 1 garter st each side until square measures approx 1 cm less than square 1 (adjust to a half or full repeat). Now K 1 row from RS, K 1 row from WS, K 1 row RS and cast off from WS in K sts.

SQUARE 4:
Cast on 38 sts on needle size 5 mm with Nepal. K 1 row from RS and K 1 row from WS. Now K 1 row from RS, AT THE SAME TIME inc 18 sts evenly (do not inc on the 2 sts each side) = 56 sts. P 1 row from WS and continue in M.4 until square measures approx 1 cm less than square 1 (adjust to after 3 rows after a cable). K 1 row from RS, AT THE SAME TIME dec 18 sts evenly (do not dec on the 2 sts each side) = 38 sts. K 1 row from WS and K 1 row from RS. Now cast off from WS with K sts.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew tog the squares as shown in Fig.1. Number indicates type of square and the arrow the knitting direction. Sew tog edge to edge in outer loops of sts to avoid a chunky seam.

BORDER:
Worked in garter st, i.e. K all rows. Pick up sts along one short side on circular needle size 5 mm with Nepal. Pick up 1 st in each st (also pick up in transitions between squares). Work garter st back and forth on needle until edge measures approx 4 cm. Cast off.

Knit a similar border along the other short side.

Pick up sts in the same way along the long side, also pick up sts along the 8 cm border on the short side, and work garter st back and forth on needle until border measures approx 4 cm. Cast off.
Repeat along the other long side.

Hallo, kann leider nicht nach schriftlicher und Zeichnung Stricken, hätte gerne die n Namen der Muster für diese schöne Kuscheldecke, Lg

Liebe Warm Hug, wir haben nur Diagram für diese Muster, hier lesen Sie wie man Diagram strickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Claudia 12.03.2019 - 16:27:

Liebes drops Team, werden bei den Vierecken randmaschen oder lt Muster gestrickt! Bei Mustersatz M3 wird anfangs und ende nur eine Masche rechts auf beiden Seiten gestrickt! Danke für die rasche Antwort, liebe Grüße

DROPS Design 13.03.2019 kl. 08:01:

Liebe Claudia, Viereck-3 wird so über die 38 M gestrickt; 1 Randmasche (krausrippe), M.3 wiederholen bis 1 Masche übrig ist (= 4 Mal das gesamte Diagram + einmal die 4 ersten Maschen), 1 Randmasche (krausrippe) = 1 + 8 M x 4.5 + 1. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

I am in love with this blanket and now in the process of knitting my 4th! The one first I made with Aran yarn and the last 3 I have used Chunky. I have done all different variations. The first exactly like the pattern the second and third used just two of the patterns and the third I am using 3 of the patterns. Everyone comments on how lovely they are.

Tina Goertzen 29.01.2019 - 23:32:

On square one, is the first line (on the M1) right side or wrong side? it has to be the wrong because you don't do the twist on the wrong side, so the last row before the M1 is also a wrong side, so I don't understand that. do I read the M1 left to right and then right to left?

DROPS Design 30.01.2019 kl. 07:40:

Dear Mrs Goertzen, row 1 in M.1 is worked from RS, work RS rows right to left from the bottom corner on the right side and read WS rows left to right. Happy knitting!

Hei. Jeg kan ikke se av mønsteret hvor stor hver rute skal være ferdigstrikket?

Odile BASTIEN 24.01.2019 - 13:26:

Merci pour votre réponse. A mon avis je ne dois pas faire le diagramme du motif 1 en entier pour avoir la mesure préconisée je vais l’adapter pour avoir un carré identique aux autres. Exemple : je vais le commencer du 11ème au 99ème rang. Est-ce que j’ai raison ? Bien cordialement.

DROPS Design 24.01.2019 kl. 16:54:

Bonjour Mme Bastien, nous ne sommes pas en mesure de pouvoir ajuster chacun de nos modèles à chaque demande, pour toute assistance, n'hésitez pas à consulter votre magasin, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon tricot!

Odile BASTIEN 24.01.2019 - 12:10:

Modèle magnifique, merci.

Odile BASTIEN 24.01.2019 - 12:09:

Bonjour, combien doit mesurer le motif 1 car si je suis le diagramme entièrement il est plus long que large soit 20cm sur 40cm. Je tricote avec les aiguilles 5 en drops merino extra-fine uni colour Merci pour votre réponse. Bien cordialement. Odile.

DROPS Design 24.01.2019 kl. 12:37:

Bonjour Mme Bastien, un carré doit mesurer environ 22 x 22 cm. Mais la couverture se réalise en Nepal (= groupe B) alors que Merino Extra fine est du groupe B, votre tension doit donc être différente en hauteur et en largeur. Pour un meilleur résultat, utilisez plutôt une laine du groupe C ou 2 fils du groupe A - cliquez sur notre convertisseur pour voir les alternatives possibles. Bon tricot!

Patricia 10.01.2019 - 16:12:

Le problème réside dans l'intérieur de la torsade centrale...si je suis parfaitement le diagramme, cela fait des lignes verticales et non pas un motif type point de blé comme sur la photo...

DROPS Design 11.01.2019 kl. 08:33:

Bonjour Patricia, à l'intérieur de chacune des torsades de M.1, tricotez les mailles au point de riz, c'est le même motif que pour les autres torsades, vous devez avoir du point de riz (comme on le voit dans le diagramme, on alterne 1 m end, 1 m env sur l'endroit et sur l'envers. Bon tricot!

Patricia 10.01.2019 - 15:17:

Quelle est la correction de M1? parce sur le motif central, j'ai tout respecté et il y a des différences...

DROPS Design 10.01.2019 kl. 15:47:

Bonjour Patricia, quelles différences avez-vous entre le diagramme et votre carré? Avez-vous bien tricoté le diagramme en commençant en bas à droite, de droite à gauche sur l'endroit et de gauche à droite sur l'envers?
