KNITTING TENSION:
This garment is to be soaked and 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.
KNITTING TIP 1 (provisional cast on):
Work a row with 26 ch on hook size 3.5 mm in Lace. Cut the thread - do not fasten. Use a new thread to knit up 26 sts in this ch-row with circular needle 3.5 mm – this is the row you will be unraveling afterwards to slip the cast on sts back on needle again.

KNITTING TIP 2:
To make the edge look nice, slip first st as if to P without working it – this is done on all rows (i.e. the outermost st each side is only worked on every other row – i.e. half as many rows vertically over this st).

PATTERN:
See diagram M.1. The diagram shows the pattern from RS.

BOBBLE:
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.
---------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
Beg by working the lace edge on the shawl then knit up sts along this edge and work the shawl - piece is worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts.
The lace edge is worked in 2 parts starting mid back - see Fig. 1. For cast on - follow KNITTING TIP 1 on how to cast on with Lace - and read KNITTING TIP 2 before continuing.
Start by working 1st row from WS as follows:
P 1 row and P the last 2 sts tog = 25 sts. Work 15 repetitions of diagram M.1(= approx. 60 cm = 180 rows have been worked). Then slip these 25 sts on a stitch holder.
Unravel the crochet row at the cast on edge, the cast on sts are then released and are ready to be worked as follows:
Slip the 25 cast on sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm and work 15 repetitions of diagram M.1 in the opposite direction (= approx. 60 cm = 180 rows have been worked). Then slip these 25 sts on a stitch holder.
Now work the shawl itself:
Knit up sts along the lace edge on circular needle size 3.5 mm from RS in front loop of outermost st as follows:
* Pick up 1 st in each of next 3 sts, skip 1 st *, repeat from *-* finish the row = 270 sts on needle - pick up 1 extra sts in last st = 271 sts on needle.
P 1 row from WS. Work next row as follows: * K 2 tog, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* and finish with K 1. P 1 row while at the same time slipping the outermost 116 sts in each side on two stitch holders and keeping the middle 39 sts on the needle.
Now work back and forth in stocking st over the middle 39 sts while AT THE SAME TIME working 3 sts from stitch holder at the end of every row until 24 sts remain on the two stitch holders in each side.
Continue to work back and forth in stocking st over the middle sts while AT THE SAME TIME working 2 sts from stitch holder at the end of every row until 11 sts remain on the two stitch holders in each side.
Continue to work back and forth in stocking st over the middle sts while AT THE SAME TIME working 1 st from stitch holder at the end of every row until all sts from the two stitch holders have been worked. Now slip sts in each side of the lace edge with diagram M.1 back on circular needle = 321 sts.
K 4 rows over all sts with double thread. Loosely cast off.

CROCHET BORDER:
The border is worked along bottom edge of diagram M.1. Use hook size 2.5 mm and Lace. In every edge st work as follows: * 1 dc, 2 ch, 1 tr, 2 ch, 1 dc *, repeat from *-*.

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 each time when the garment has been washed.

Bonjour, lorsqu'on doit tricoter les 116 m, les mettre en attente, ensuite tricotez les 39 m suivantes, est que je dois simplement glissez les 116 dernières mailles avant de les mettre en attente ou les tricoter et les mettre en attentes? Car si je dois les tricoter, je ne comprends pas comment faire pour tourner et poursuive sur les 39 mailles au rang suivant... Merci à l'avance.

DROPS Design 29.05.2019 kl. 08:30:

Bonjour Marie-Ève, tricotez 1 rang envers, glissez les 116 premières mailles de ce rang en attente, tricotez les 39 m suivantes (= les 39 m centrales) et glissez (sans les tricoter) les 116 dernières mailles du rang. Ainsi, votre fil se trouve juste au début des 39 m. Bon tricot!

Pia 15.05.2019 - 08:37:

Jeg undre mig over at der står at sjælen skal strikkes vådt, er det en fejl?

DROPS Design 15.05.2019 kl. 09:37:

Hej Pia, Nej, hvis du strikker sjalet i DROPS Lace, så fugter du sjalet bagefter og strækker det til de rigtige mål. God fornøjelse!

Das Tuch ist wunderschön. Finde die Anleitung aber leider sehr verwirrend.

I would like to use the edging lace pattern on a triangular shawl shape. My plan is to sew the edging onto a completed triangular shawl. Do you have such a design already? I can\\\'t figure out how to create the center V for the point of the triangle within the lace edging.

Dear Mrs Pang, we are unfortunately not able to adjust every pattern to each individual request. You are welcome to contact the store where you bought your yarn - even per mail or telephone - or ask for assistance on a knitting forum. Happy knitting!

Mir gefällt das Schultertuch sehr gut! Wie wird das Tuch vorne gehalten? Ist es lange genug, um es vorne zu binden? Oder: Wie wird es auf den Schultern gehalten, ohne dass es wegrutscht? Gibt es vielleicht noch ein Bild von vorne? Vielen Dank im Voraus für die Antwort.

DROPS Design 31.07.2018 kl. 09:36:

Liebe Frau Storzum, der Schal misst ca 155 cm oben, vorne können Sie beide Enden miteinander verknoten. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Après avoir relevé les m., on a 116+39+116 = 271. On reprend les m. 3 par 3 sur les 116 m. de chaque côté jusqu'à ce qu'il en reste 24. Or, 116 - 24 = 92, ce qui n'est pas divisible par 3. De même, quand on reprend les m. 2 par 2, pour qu'il reste 11 mailles sur les 24, on en reprend 13, ce qui n'est pas divisible par 2 ! On peut bien sur adapter pour tomber juste, mais j'aimerais savoir s'il y a une finesse de tricotage que je n'ai pas comprise.

Katharina 27.12.2017 - 10:59:

Hallo liebes Drops Team. Ich habe eine Frage zu den Aufnahmen an der Lacekante. Durch das Abheben der ersten Masche in jeder Musterreihe habe ja nur 180 Randmaschen, nicht 360. Wie soll ich da 271 Maschen aus dem Rand aufnehmen? Vielen Dank für eine Antwort und viele Grüße

DROPS Design 02.01.2018 kl. 08:48:

Liebe Katharina, es werden je 1 Maschen aus den 3 nächsten M (nicht Musterreihe) aufgefassen, und dann 1 M überspringen = 270 M + 1 M aus der letzten Maschen aufnehmen = 271 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Nicole 07.07.2017 - 19:16:

Bonjour, comment pousuivre le tricot après avoir repris les 271 mailles sur le côté? Dans le rang envers, au moment où l'on met 116 mailles en attente de chaque côté comment faut-il procéder exactement? Faut-il tricoter le rang en entier et faire la répartition des mailles une fois le rang terminé ou faut-il tricoter le rang seulement jusqu'à la fin des 39 mailles centrales et commencer les allers-retours sur ces mailles à ce moment-là? Merci pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 10.07.2017 kl. 09:12:

Bonjour Nicole, tricotez ainsi: 116 m et mettez les en attente, tricotez les 39 m suivantes et glissez les 116 dernières mailles en attente. Tournez, puis tricotez les 39 m en jersey en tricotant 3 m en plus à la fin de chaque rang jusqu'à ce qu'il reste 24 m sur les 2 arrêts de mailles. Bon tricot!

Schöner Kompromiss! Schönes Lace-Muster zur Verzierung und dann ein bissl (langweilige, aber gut zum Mitnehmen und nebenher-stricken) Entspannung. Für mich ein gutes Lace-Einstieger-Modell!
