The shawl is worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts.
Cast on 17 sts on circular needle size 8 mm with Verdi.
P 1 row from WS.
Continue to work as follows (row 1 = from RS): diagram M.1 is repeated 8 times and finish with 1 stocking st (K from RS, P from WS).

Work M.1 as follows:
Row 1 (RS): *K1, yo, K1, yo, place marker *, repeat *-* and end row with 1 st in stocking st. There are now 8 markers, one after each repeat of M.1.
Row 2 and all rows from WS: P all sts and yo's.
Row 3: *K1, yo, K3, yo*, repeat *-* and end row with 1 st in stocking st.
Row 5: * K2 in 1 st, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, K2 tog, K2 in 1 st* repeat *-* and end row with 1 st in stocking st.
Row 7: *K2 in 1 st, yo, slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso, K2 tog, yo, K2 in 1 st* repeat *-* and end row with 1 st in stocking st.

Now continue by repeating M.1B vertically.
Continue until piece reaches desired length, finish after a second row in M.1B (i.e. the row with the YOs).
K 1 row from WS.
Cast off with K from RS.
Sew a thread through the sts in the cast on edge, tighten and fasten.

Hei, Huomasin myös, että sanallinen ohje ja kuva eivät olleet samanlaiset krs.7.

Tuula Lintusaari 09.10.2018 - 19:30:

Hei, Olen neulonut kuvion M.1 loppuun. Jatkoin sitten M.1B kuviota ensin nurjalla, sitten reikäkerroksella. Huomasin, että työssäni onkin nyt 2 x 8 eli 16 s joka merkkilangan välissä. Kuvio M.1B 4. krs jatkuu kuitenkin 12 silmukalla, joten 4 s jää yli, eikä kuvio enää toistuisi oikealla tavalla. Olenko tehnyt jotain väärin? Miten siis jatkan M.1B kerroksia? Jos jatkan M.1 16. krs:lla, silmukkaluku pitää paikkansa, mutta se ei mene ohjeen mukaisesti. Kiitos vastauksestanne.

Bonjour est il possible de réaliser ce modèle au crochet?

DROPS Design 08.10.2018 kl. 14:24:

Bonjour Mme Bernard, probablement, mais nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir adapter chacun de nos modèles à chaque demande individuelle. N'hésitez pas à contacter un forum de crochet et/ou votre magasin DROPS, même par mail ou téléphone pour toute assistance complémentaire. Bon tricot!

Hi, I would like to ask if I can use Drops Eskimo to make this shawl. I want it to be quite warm :) . Thank you, Shanna

DROPS Design 19.09.2018 kl. 14:38:

Dear Shanna, this shawl has been worked in Verdi, which was yarn group D while Eskimo is yarn group E, ie the tension will be completely different. Read more about the alternatives here or see all our shawls worked with a yarn group E here. Happy knitting!

Liebes Team, ich habe für dieses Modell die als mögliche Ersatzwolle genannte "Alpaca Silk" gewählt. Welche Nadelstärke sollte ich nun verwenden? Nr. 5, wie auf der Wolle steht, oder dicker? Bei "Verdi" sollte normalerweise Nr. 6 verwendet werden, für dieses Modell aber Nr. 8. Grüße von Bettina

DROPS Design 24.04.2018 kl. 08:55:

Liebe Bettina, Das Tuch war hier locker mit Nadeln Nr 8 gestrickt und Verdi war Garngruppe D und Brushed Alpaca Silk ist Garngruppe C, am besten stricken Sie noch ein Garngruppe A dazu (= 2 Fäden A = 1 Faden C / 3 Fäden A (= 1 Faden C + 1 Faden A) = 1 Faden D) - siehe auch hier. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ha.....nu har jeg knækket koden. Når man begynder anden M.1B skal antalle af retmasker øges til 5 (pind 4) og 4 på (pind 6 ), 6 ret (pind 8) og 5 ret (pind 10) osv.

The video shows the first time you do de M1B, that i understand. I wanted to know how to do the second time because this time when i start i have more stiches. Do I center the diagram?

DROPS Design 01.03.2016 kl. 08:52:

Dear Sofia, when you repeat M.1B in height you will then have more sts between the inc at the beg of each repetition + at the end of each repetition and the 2 dec in the middle of repetition. Repeat the inc at beg of repetition as in diagram, work the 2 dec in the middle of repetition as before (they should be lined up), and inc at the end of repetition as shown in diagram. Happy knitting!

Sofia 29.02.2016 - 16:42:

I don`t understand how to repeat the M.1B. I end the first with 16 stiches for each of the 8 repetitions and the starting of the diagram M.1Bhas only 12 stiches for each of the 8 parts. How do i do the other 4 stiches?

DROPS Design 29.02.2016 kl. 17:45:

Dear Sofia, the video below shows how to repeeat M.1B in height - see also here. Happy knitting!

Merci beaucoup pour votre réponse rapide!

Aline 28.10.2015 - 05:48:

J'ai regardé toutes vos vidéos mais aucune ne montrent comment répéter le diagramme m1b, juste, comment le faire. Comment dois-ton augmenter s'il vous plait? Merci!

DROPS Design 28.10.2015 kl. 11:33:

Bonjour Aline, Dans la vidéo du diagramme, il est expliqué comment tricoter M1B: à chaque fois que l'on tricote les rangs 6 et 10 avec 2 x (tricoter 2 fois la même m), on aura 1 m end en plus de chaque côté du milieu du motif (avant la dim et après la dim du milieu du motif). Bon tricot!
