NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here.

Fasten the threads in Delight continuously.

HEXAGON (worked in the round on double pointed needles):
Cast on 6 sts evenly on 3 double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 (= 2 sts per needle) with Delight.
ROUND 1: P all sts.
ROUND 2: K all sts.
ROUND 3: Work * P 1, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* = 12 sts.
ROUND 4: K all sts, K the YOs twisted (i.e. work in back loop of sts instead of front to avoid holes).
ROUND 5: P all sts.
ROUND 6: K all sts.
Now continue to work on 7 double pointed needles. Distribute sts evenly on 6 double pointed needles so that there are 2 sts per needle.
ROUND 7: Work * P 1, 1 YO, P 1, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* = 24 sts (= 4 sts per needle).
ROUND 8: As 4th round.
ROUND 9: P all sts.
ROUND 10: K all sts.
ROUND 11: Work * P 1, 1 YO, P 3, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* = 36 sts.
ROUND 12: As 4th round.
ROUND 13: P all sts.
ROUND 14: K all sts.
ROUND 15: Work * P 1, 1 YO, P 5, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* = 48 sts.
ROUND 16: As 4th round.
ROUND 17: P all sts.
ROUND 18: K all sts.
ROUND 19: Switch to BabyAlpaca Silk. Work * P 1, 1 YO, P 7, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* = 60 sts.
ROUND 20: LOOSELY bind off with K over all sts. Cut the thread and keep approx. 20 cm / 8'' for assembly.
Fasten the threads in Delight.
Turn the hexagon so that the cast on thread is on the back.

Read KNITTING TIP. Work 130 HEXAGONS in light blue and 129 in beige/blue - see explanation above = 259 in total.

See fig. 1. Place the hexagons as you please. Use the thread in BabyAlpaca Silk to sew the hexagons tog. Sew in outer loop of edge sts to avoid a chunky seam.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Hallo, was ist wenn ich keine 6 Nadeln habe und stattdessen die Maschen nur auf maximal 4 Nadeln verteilen kann oder sogar magic loop verwende? Verziehen sich dann die 6-ecke unwiederbringlich? Danke.

DROPS Design 11.03.2016 kl. 13:14:

Liebe Barbara, nein ich denke nicht, dass es sich verzieht, aber es ist viel einfacher zu stricken, wenn die Maschen jeder Seite auf einer separaten Nadel liegen.

På mönstret står att man ska ha 2*5 stickor a3,5 , men på rad står det att man ska använda 6 stickor nr 7. hur går det ihop

Jeg kan ikke få opskriften til at passe. På pind 7 tages ud fra 12 til 24. På pind 11 skal der tages ud til 36. Det er 12 masker. det passer ikke med *3 vr slå om* men med *2 vr slå om* Og denne uoverensstemmelse fortsætter i de næste udtagninger også!,?? Ligeledes tænker jeg at hvis det skal blive 6kanter skal der kun tages ud x 6?? Be om hjælp! Mette

DROPS Design 29.06.2015 kl. 11:11:

Hej. På p 7 upprepar du *-* 6 gånger. 2 kast per *-* ger då 12 ökade m. På p 11 upprepar du också *-* 6 gånger, 2 kast per *-* ger 12 ökade m. Lycka till!

Eileen Davis Kovar 24.05.2014 - 02:27:

Can this pattern be made on any needles or just double pointed needles?

DROPS Design 26.05.2014 kl. 08:52:

Dear Mrs David Kovar, each hexagon is worked in the round - you can use either double pointed needles or a circular needle (magic loop). You will find relevant videos to help you under the tab "Videos" at the right side of the picture. Happy knitting!

Vad får pläden för mått när den är monterad, ungefär?

Hej! Jag undrar vilken storlek på stickor som verkligen ska användas. Det står lite olika i början och i beskrivningen. Tacksam för klargörande.

DROPS Design 12.03.2013 kl. 10:25:

Sticor 3,5 eller det nr du måste använda för att få 23 m x 46 v rätst på 10x10 cm!
