KNITTING TENSION:

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.
---------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts. Cast on 3 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Lace. Insert a marker in the 2nd st (mid st - marks mid back of shawl).
Work 1 row as follows (= RS): K 1, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 1 = 5 sts. NOTE! On next row K YOs twisted, i.e. work in back loop of YOs instead of front, to avoid holes.

Then K every row while at the same time inc 4 sts on every row from RS as follows: Work 2 sts in the second st and in the next to last st in each side and make 1 YO on each side of st with marker (still work YOs twisted). Continue like this until there are 29 sts on the needle.

Then work as follows from RS:
Diagram X.1, diagram M.1A (= 4 sts), diagram M.1C (= 5 sts) and diagram X.2, 1 st in stocking st (= mid st), diagram X.3, diagram M.1A (= 4 sts), diagram M.1C (= 5 sts) and diagram X.4.
When the repetition has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 45 sts on needle.

Continue to work as follows:
Diagrams X.1, M.1A, then repeat M.1B (= 8 sts) until 6 sts remain before mid st(no of sts varies depending on which row in diagrams X.1-X.4 is being worked), over these last 6 sts work diagram M.1C and X.2, 1 st in stocking st (= mid st), work diagrams X.3, M.1A, repeat M.1B until 9 sts remain on row (no of sts varies depending on which row in diagrams X.1-X.4 is being worked), and work these in diagram M.1C and X.4.

Continue like this until M.1 has been worked a total of 20 times vertically - the inc sts are worked gradually into diagram M.1. There are now 349 sts on needle, 174 sts on each side of mid st.

Work 4 rows in stocking st while AT THE SAME TIME continuing with edge sts each side in garter st and inc on every row from RS as before = 357 sts, 178 sts on each side of mid st.

Now work as follows from RS: 4 edge sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above - 1 YO, K 2, 10 times diagram M.2, K 2 before mid st, 1 YO, 1 st in stocking st (= mid st), 1 YO, K 2, 10 times diagram M.2, K 2, 1 YO, 4 edge sts in garter st. NOTE! The inc sts in the sides and mid back are worked in stocking st until diagram M.2 has been worked. When diagram M.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, K 1 row from WS. Loosely cast off with K sts with 2 threads.

BLOCKING:
Place the shawl in lukewarm water until it is soaking wet. Carefully squeeze the water out of the shawl - do not twist the shawl - then roll the shawl in a towel and squeeze to remove more water - the shawl will now only be moist.
Place the shawl on a carpet or mattress - carefully stretch it out to size and fasten it with pins. Leave to dry. Repeat the process when the garment has been washed.

Danke vielmals!!!!

Christina 16.04.2019 - 11:14:

Hallo, Zwei Fragen: *wenn ich die Umschläge verschränkt anstricke, entstehen ja kaum Löcher, aber das Muster lebt doch von den Löchern! *wenn am Beginn die Rückreihen rechts gestrickt werden, entstehen ja Krausrippen. Am Bild ist das Spitzerl aber glatt....? Freu mich auf die Klärung! Danke!

DROPS Design 23.04.2019 kl. 10:27:

Liebe Christina, am Anfang vom Tuch stricken Sie krausrechts (mit den Umschlägen verschränkt) bis Sie 29 M haben. Dann stricken Sie die Diagramme wie beschrieben (= leeres Kästchen = 1 M glatt rechts, dh das Muster wird dann glatt rechts mit dem Lochmuster gestrickt), mit 3 Maschen kraus rechts auf beiden Seiten (= die 3 ersten Maschen in X.1 + die 3 letzten Maschenb in X.4). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Cinzia 13.04.2019 - 07:43:

Buongiorno. Io vorrei utilizzare il punto M1 per fare una stola dritta (non uno scialle triangolare). Non riesco a capire come si sovrappongono le parti M1.A, M1.B e M1.C per ottenere il disegno corretto. Potete, per piacere, fornire uno schema con solo M1 senza gli X ripetuto in verticale 2 o 3 volte in modo da avere la guida per il disegno? Grazie Cordiali saluti Cinzia

DROPS Design 13.04.2019 kl. 09:09:

Buongiorno Cinzia, le parti di M.1 non si sovrappongono, ma in alcuni punti dello scialle si lavora M.1A poi delle ripetizioni di M.1B e alla fine M.1C. Purtroppo non possiamo soddisfare la sua richiesta riguardo lo schema, non ci è possibile fornire un'assistenza così personalizzata, ma può provare a riprodurlo su un foglio a quadretti. Buon lavoro!

Martina Oswaldbauer 20.01.2019 - 21:29:

Hallo, die Rückreihen (welche meist in den Strickschriften nicht extra aufgeführt wird) ist in dieser Anleitung dabei, oder? Und verstehe ich es richtig, dass beim Zurückstricken (dann quasi auf der Rückseite) jeweils drei rechte Maschen, dann lauter linke Maschen und am Ende der Rückreihe nochmal drei rechte Maschen gestrickt werden müssen? Danke schön mal.

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 12:19:

Liebe Frau Oswaldbauer, die Diagramme zeigen alle Reihen, dh die Hin sowie die Rückreihen. Die Hinreihen lesen Sie rechts nach links und die Rückreihen lesen Sie links nach rechts - wie im diagram gezeigt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Kiitos nopeasta vastauksesta, , tuo auttoi paljon, mutta vielä unohtui yksi kysymys, oikealla välikerroksella, neulotaanko sinnekin neljän aina oikean silmukan jälkeen langankierto, samoin ennen ja jälkeen keskisilmukan, en saa menemään tekemälläkään kuviossa M2 silmukoita tasan? Olen tehnyt langankierron sielläkin, on ilmeisesti väärin?

DROPS Design 09.02.2018 kl. 14:12:

Hei, langankierrot tehdään jokaisella oikean puolen kerroksella reunoissa ja keskisilmukan molemmin puolin kuten aiemmin. Eli piirrokseen M.2 ei tehdä välikerroksella langankiertoja, vaan ne ovat mallikerran ulkopuolella.

Eeva Liisa Salonen 06.02.2018 - 15:23:

Kiitos edellisestä vastauksesta, nyt olen edennyt kuvioon M2, neulotaanko kaksi nurin yhteen silmukat välikerroksilla oikein vai nurin?

DROPS Design 06.02.2018 kl. 18:15:

Nämä silmukat neulotaan seuraavilla kerroksilla oikein oikealta puolelta ja nurin nurjalta puolelta.

Eeva Liisa Salonen 13.01.2018 - 13:04:

Mihin tulevat langankierrot Kerroksella 1 M1 neuleessa A, loppuun, vai B:n alkuun ja toinen B:n loppuun? En tahdo millään päästä mallineuleen alkua pidemmälle.

DROPS Design 15.01.2018 kl. 14:23:

Langankierrot tehdään siten, että 1 langankierto vastaa aina 1 kavennusta. Eli piirroksen A loppuun tulee 1 langankierto, samoin piirroksen B loppuun.

Sabine 09.07.2017 - 22:02:

Liebes Drops-Team, die Strickschrift zu M1 kann nicht stimmen. Ich stricke die Abnahmen genau nach Vorgabe, aber da sie immer in die gleiche Richtung gehen, können es keine "Diamanten" werden. Sieht zwar auch schön aus, ergibt aber keine Rauten. Viele Grüße Sabine

DROPS Design 10.07.2017 kl. 09:57:

Liebe Sabine, M1 stimmt schon, vergessen Sie nicht 1 Kästchen im Diagram = 1 Masche x 1 Reihe - mit M.1A anfangen (= 4 M), dann M1B wiederholen (= 7 M) und mit M1C enden (= 5 M), nach 2 Rapporte in der Höhe werden Sie sicher die "Diamanten" sehen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Barbara Mitchem 13.05.2017 - 23:43:

Hello. After the diamond repeats are completed, it says to work 4 rows in stockinette st ............and inc on every row from RS as before = 357 sts. There are two places where you inc so I am not sure which to do. The inc pattern that is used while working the original 29 sts onto the needle or the inc pattern used in the X.1, X.2, X3, X4 diamond pattern?

DROPS Design 14.05.2017 kl. 11:03:

Dear Barbara, in the 4 rows of stockinett, you should continue with the increase of 4 stitch in every other row, (one at the begining of the row, one at each side of the central stitch and one at the end of the row (In other words knit two stitches to the secont and the last stitch in both side of the shawl.) I hope this helped. Happy Knitting!

Sigrunn Navarne 23.11.2016 - 16:35:

Strikkes det vrangt på vrangen, eller? Står ikke noe sted.

DROPS Design 23.11.2016 kl. 16:50:

Hej Sigrunn. I starten staar der strik r paa hver p mens du öger. Naar du begynder med mönstrene, saa se beskrivelsen af diagram symbolerne nederst. Her staar der hvordan du strikker fra baade ret og vrangen.
