DROPS STRAIGHT NEEDLES SIZE 3.5 mm - NOTE! Read about the knitting tension below.

This garment is to be soaked and blocked/stretched to size afterwards so the knitting tension is not that important. But to get a sense of whether you are working too loose/tight, work a test on needle size 3.5 mm in stocking st and get approx. 23 sts x 30 rows = 10 x 10 cm.

Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

PATTERN: See diagram. The diagram shows the pattern from RS.

1st row (RS): Work 7 sts in 1 st as follows: * K 1, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times and finish with K 1 = 7 sts. It is important to work the sts loosely (approx. 1 cm long).
2nd row (WS): P these 7 sts tog. It will be difficult to work the sts from 1st row tog if they are too short and too tight.

NOTE! The shawl can be made bigger or smaller by casting on 24 sts more or 24 sts less. Cast on 103 sts on needle size 3.5 mm with Lace and K 1 row from WS. Work next row as follows: 3 sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above - 8 times diagram M.1, 1 st in stocking st, 3 sts in garter st. Continue like this until diagram M.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, then K 5 rows and P 1 row from WS. Now work diagram M.2 4 times then 1 st in stocking while AT THE SAME TIME continuing with 3 edge sts in garter st in each side. Work diagram M.2 1 time vertically, then K 5 rows and P 1 row from WS. Work next row as follows: 1 time diagram M.3A, 6 times diagram M.3B, and 1 time diagram M.3C with 3 edge sts in garter st in each side. Continue like this until piece measures approx. 75 cm, adjust so that one whole or half repetition of diagram M.3 has been worked vertically. Now K 4 rows over all sts. Put all sts on a stitch holder. Knit another part the same way.

Graft/sew the 2 parts tog st by st.

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.

Au lieu de faire 2 pieces identiques et le grafting , ne puis-je pas tricoter la 2eme piece en sens inverse ?

Bonjour Mme Hélias, on tricote ici en deux parties pour que les extrémités soient identiques, raison pour laquelle on commence par les extrémités et que l'on coud les 2 moitiés entre elles au milieu. Bon tricot!

All of your patterns work up beautifully, but this one is amazing! Thank you.

Warum müssen laceschals zusammenhenäht werden? Kann mann das ganze nicht auch einen Stück stricken? Danke, Zuzana

DROPS Design 10.05.2016 kl. 08:59:

Liebe Zuzana, das macht man, damit die beiden Seiten symmetrisch werden.

Melanie 29.12.2015 - 18:11:

The instructions print but how do you get the diagrams to print? I have had this problem before and drawn the diagrams by hand but this one is a bit complicated!

Dear Melanie, just made a print-test and it worked perfectly, diagrams should be on page 4/6 on the printed pattern. Happy knitting!

Realizzo questo modello in nero x un'amica; appena sarà finito lo pubblicherò su fb

Ik zou deze sjaal dolgraag willen breien, ik heb alleen een vraag over het einde van deel 1. Waarom worden deze steken op een hulpdraad gezet en niet afgekant?

DROPS Design 03.09.2013 kl. 15:07:

Hoi Josien. Je breit de sjaal in twee delen en aan het eind maas je de 2 delen st voor st samen.

Habe gestern das Garn bekommen und gleich angefangen den wunderschönen Schal zu stricken. Er gefällt mir sehr gut und das Muster ist auch sehr leicht nachzustricken.

Er staat 200 gram maar is volgens mij 100 gram nodig

Von der Vorderseite 7 M. in eine M. stricken und danach von der Rückseite alle M. zusammenstricken.

Nicole Ghadir-Mohr 05.01.2012 - 10:59:

Hallo, Leider verstehe ich nicht, wie die Noppen in M2 zu stricken sind :-( Zuerst habe ich diese wie eine normale Noppe gestrickt, also 7M in 1M stricken, sofort wenden, 7M links stricken und dann 6M überziehen. Das sieht nicht wie auf dem Foto aus. Dann habe ich in der Hinreihe 7M aus 1M gestrickt und in der nächsten Reihe die 7M links zusammen gestrickt. Sieht aber auch nicht gut aus. Oder muß ich in der nächsten Reihe die 7M links stricken und dann überziehen??
