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.
1st row (= RS): * K 1, 2 YO *, repeat from *-* until 1 st remains and finish with K 1.
2nd row (= WS): K while slipping the YOs from previous row off the needle (= long sts). NOTE! Remember the inc.
3rd row: As 1st row.
4th row: As 2nd row.
5th row: As 1st row.
6th row: As 2nd row.
7th to 12th row: K all sts.
Repeat row 1 to 12.

The shawl is worked top down. The shawl is worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts.
Cast on 3 sts on needle size 5 mm / US 8 with Alpaca Bouclé. Insert a marker in the middle st = mid back of shawl. All measurements are done straight down in the middle of the piece. Work 1st row (= WS) as follows: K 1, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 1 = 5 sts. K back over all sts, knit the YOs twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes.
Work next row as follows: (K 1, P 1) in first st, K 1, (K 1, P 1, K 1) in next st, (K 1, P 1) in next st, K 1 = 9 sts. K back over all sts as before. Continue to K back and forth over all sts. AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 sts on every row from WS by working (K 1, P 1) in the first st on row and in the next to last st on row, and by working (K 1, P 1, K 1) in the middle st with marker. Continue like this until there are 57 sts on the needle. Now inc 6 sts on every row from WS by working (K 1, P 1, K 1) in the first st on row, the middle st with marker and the last st on the row AT THE SAME TIME on next row from RS start with PATTERN - see explanation above.
Continue with pattern until piece measures approx. 58 cm / 22 3/4'' measured mid back (finish after 6th row in pattern). Now continue with inc on every row from WS as before while AT THE SAME TIME knitting back and forth over all sts. Continue like this until piece measures 62 cm / 24½'' mid back.
Now bind off as follows: * bind off 3 sts, make 1 YO on right needle, bind off YO *, repeat from *-* the entire row.

Se lavorassi questo modello con Paris, verrebbe troppo pesante da portare? in caso potete consigliarmi un filato di cotone? Lo vorrei usare in estate Grazie

DROPS Design 26.06.2018 kl. 15:34:

Buongiorno Monica. Il Paris, pur essendo dello stesso gruppo filati di Alpaca Bouclé, potrebbe risultare pesante. Sempre dello stesso gruppo di filati potrebbe usare il Bomull Lin, un filato misto lino cotone, che una volta lavato risulta molto leggero e morbido. Per un aiuto più completo può rivolgersi al suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia. Buon lavoro!

Liebes Drops-Team, ich hab´9 Maschen auf der Nadel und beginne mit den regelmäßigen Aufnahmen. Werden diese in jeder R., oder in jeder Rückreihe gemacht? Es ist verwirrend, da Sie schreiben: "bei jeder R. von der Rückseite 4 M aufnehmen". Was meinen Sie damit? Später dann, wenn man 57M auf der Nadel hat, werden in jeder Rückreihe, also jede 2.R., 6M zugenommen. Das ist verständlicher erklärt. Danke für Eure Hilfe. LG Margit

DROPS Design 12.06.2017 kl. 13:08:

Liebe Margit, nachdem Sie 9 M haben, sollen Sie 4 M in jeder Rückreihe zunehmen (= (1 re., 1 li.) in die erste und die letzte M und (1 re., 1 li., 1 re.) in die mittlere M. = 1 M auf beiden Seiten + 2 M in der Mitte ) bis Sie 57 haben. Dann wird es in jeder Rückreihe 6 M zugenomen (= je (1 re., 1 li., 1 re.) in die erste, die mittlere und letzte M. dh 2 M auf beiden Seiten + 2 M in der Mitte), und dann gleichzeitig Muster anfangen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hallo, ik begrijp niet hoe ik moet beginnen aan de omslagdoek. Er staat dat je begint met 3 steken opzetten maar bij naald 1 worden er 5 steken genoemd. Hoe kan dit? & wat wordt er bedoeld met: Brei de volgende naald als volgt (1 st r, 1 st av) in de eerste st. Is hier ook een video van? Alvast dank voor het antwoord.

DROPS Design 23.03.2016 kl. 14:07:

Hoi GV. Je zet 3 st op, en brei je de eerste nld zoals er staat: 1 st r, 1 omsl, 1 st r, 1 omsl, 1 st r = 5 st, heb je 5 st op de nld (je maakt 2 omslagen = 2 nieuwe st)

Absolutely love it, easy and fast to knit and the boucle Alpaca is as it softest and lightest best. Brilliant
