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

See diagrams M.1A and M.1B. The diagrams show all the rows in pattern seen from RS.

The shawl can be knitted larger by working more inches in stockinette st and then more inches in pattern if desired. Proportion on picture is approx. 2/3 stockinette st to 1/3 pattern.

* bind off 3 sts, make 1 YO on right needle, bind off YO *, repeat from *-* the entire row.

Worked back and forth on circular needle, work from mid back of neck and down.
Cast on 3 sts on circular needle size 7 mm / US 10½ with Verdi.
Work as follows:
Row 1 (= RS): K 2 sts in 1st and 2nd st, and K 1 st in 3rd st = 5 sts.
Row 2 (= WS): K all sts.
Row 3: K 1, K 2 sts in next st, K 1 – insert a marker in this st (= mid st), K 2 sts in next st, K 1 = 7 sts.
Row 4: K all sts.
Row 5: 2 sts in GARTER ST (edge st) - see explanation above - 3 sts in stockinette st (i.e. K), 2 sts in garter st (edge st).
Row 6: 2 sts in garter st, 3 sts in stockinette st (i.e. P), 2 sts in garter st.

Now continue with 2 sts in garter st in each side and work in stockinette st over the other sts.
AT THE SAME TIME on every row from RS, inc 4 sts as follows: Work 2 edge sts in garter st, 1 YO, work in stockinette st until mid st, 1 YO before mid st, K mid st, 1 YO, work in stockinette st until 2 edge sts remain, 1 YO, 2 edge sts in garter st.
Read KNITTING TIP above.
When piece measures approx. 40 cm / 15 3/4'' in the middle (adjust so that next row is worked from RS), work 2 edge sts in garter st, 1 YO, diagram M.1A until 1 st remains before mid st, K1, 1 YO, mid st, 1 YO, K1, diagram M.1B until 2 sts remain, 1 YO, 2 edge sts in garter st.
Continue like this with pattern and inc, work inc sts into pattern.
When piece measures approx. 63 cm / 24 3/4'' on the middle, work in garter st over all sts for 2 cm / 3/4''.

Question: After R6m the row with the increases is worked, and then the next row is k2, p across to last 2 st, k2. Continue these two rows until ready to work pattern, correct? Then when you begin working in the pattern after 40cm of stockinette... RS row is worked in the pattern, WS is still k2, purl across to last 2, k2 is that correct? Or is the pattern worked on BOTH sides at this point? Thank you very much in advance!

Dear Christine, after you have worked row 6, continue in pattern as before (= stocking stitch with 2 sts in garter st on each side) while increasing 4 sts every row from RS until piece measures 40 cm (from the cast on edge along the middle stitch). Then continue from RS working diagram (= row 1 in M.1A/B is worked from RS - from WS all sts in diagrams are purled) - continue the 2 edge sts in garter st on each side. Happy knitting!

Liebes Drops-Team, ich habe eine Frage zu der Anleitung.Nach 40 cm mit den glatt rechts gestrickten Partien schließt sich das etwas grobere Lochmuster an. Auf dem Foto sieht es aber so aus, als wenn das glatt gestrickte Dreieck von dem groberen Lochmuster eingerahmt wird.Gem.der Anleitung würde das bei mir dann aber anders aussehen, quasi oben als Abschlusskante?! Vielleicht stehe ich auch nur auf dem Schlauch... ;-) Freue mich auf die "Erleuchtung"!

Liebe Daniela, die Form ergibt sich aus der Art der Zunahmen, Sie nehmen ja in der Mitte (= mittlere, senkrechte Lochreihe) und am Rand zu. Stricken Sie das Tuch einfach nach Anleitung, dann ergibt sich automatisch die Form.

Bonjour, j'aimerai savoir de quel côté il faut démarrer les diagrammes : en bas à droite ou en bas à gauche? Merci

DROPS Design 18.04.2012 kl. 18:17:

Bonjour Fanny, les diagrammes se lisent sur l'endroit à partir du coin en bas à droite vers la gauche, dans le sens du tricot. Bon tricot !

Fanny 26.02.2012 - 08:54:

Bonjour, juste un détail, ce châle se trouve dans la catégorie "crochet" alors qu'il est réalisé aux aiguilles :)

There is M.1A and M.1B for the pattern but for the colors we use a multicolored yarn.

Jessica-Jean 14.12.2011 - 22:43:

Lovely pattern, but I don't see any chart for the pattern itself. I guess I'll make my own.

Hoi Linda. De teltekeningen staan nu erop.

Linda 11.12.2011 - 11:32:
