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.
See diagram M.1. No of sts in diagram M.1 will vary from 24 to 28.

There is no difference between RS and WS, the piece is the same on both sides. Start therefore every row as if it is worked from RS.
Cast on 140-150-160-170 sts on needle size 3.5 mm with 2 threads Kid-Silk. Remove one thread and K 1 row over all sts. Insert a marker after 24 sts in from each side (= 92-102-112-122 sts between markers).
Work next row as follows: First row in diagram M.1 (= 24 sts), then K the rest of row. Turn and work as follows: First row in diagram M.1 (= 24 sts), K 92-102-112-122 sts (i.e. sts between markers) and work second row in diagram M.1 over the last 25 sts. Turn and work as follows: Third row in diagram M.1 over the first 25 sts, K the sts between markers and work second row in diagram M.1 over the last 25 sts. Continue to K the sts between markers on all rows and work diagram M.1 over sts in each side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures approx. 30-32-35-38 cm (adjust after 1 whole repetition of diagram M.1 in each side), K 1 row over all sts. Then LOOSELY cast off with 2 threads - it is very important that the cast off edge is not too tight.

Sew tog for sleeves as follows: Place A against B - see chart - and sew cast on edge against cast off edge – start at the outermost edge and sew approx. 10 cm in towards the middle (sew edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam). Sew the same way in the other side by placing C against D.


= K all rows (= garter st)
= 1 YO between 2 sts
= K 2 tog on all rows
= cast off this st

Zuerst meinen allerbesten Dank für Ihre vielen schönen Anleitungen. Ich habe 2 Boleros (Akropolis und Mette) mit Ihrer Baby Merino-Wolle gestrickt, da fand ich die Strickrichtung beschrieben. Jedoch in manch anderen Shrug oder Bolero-Anleitungen rätsle ich, ob von der Seite her oder von unten nach oben oder umgekehrt gestrickt werden soll. Ein Pfeil in der Zeichnung wäre hilfreich - DANKE!

DROPS Design 19.02.2019 kl. 09:07:

Liebe Frau Gruber, die Strickrichtung benutzen wir mehr jetzt in den Maßszkizzen. Dieses Modell wird von unten nach oben gestrickt - das Diagram M.1 wird auf beiden Seiten gestrickt (= Ärmelkante). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

In patroon 136-29 voorlaatste rij van het telpatroon moet je 4steken afkanten moet je die telkens herhalen of wanneer moet je die afkanten ik snap het niet echt

DROPS Design 13.12.2016 kl. 12:06:

Hoi Fillet. Je herhaalt steeds het telpatroon M.1. Door de omslagen meerder je in de eerste 8 nld zodat je aan het begin van de 9e nld 28 st op de nld hebt. In deze nld kant je dan de eerste 4 st af = en je hebt 24 st weer op de nld. Begin opnieuw met het telpatroon.

Is it possible to knit this pattern in garter stitch all over. Will I have enough yarn specified in the pattern for this? Without help I cannot follow the instructions. Thank you

DROPS Design 25.01.2016 kl. 11:37:

Dear Rosemary, altering a pattern can always influence the amount of required yarn - remember you can always get personnal help from your DROPS store - see here for Italy. Happy knitting!

Rosemary 23.01.2016 - 17:14:

Hi. I am also having a similar problem understanding the instructions as Trish Hopkins 25.05.2014 kl. 21:26: I have tried 4 times. Please can you help

DROPS Design 25.01.2016 kl. 14:04:

Dear Rosemary, On first row with pattern work: 1st row in M.1 ( = 24 sts) and work remaining sts on row. On next row, work 1st row in M.1 (= 24 sts) on the first sts on needle, then work 92-122 sts (see size) and work 2nd row in M.1 over the last sts on needle. Turn, work 3rd row in M.1 over the first sts and the 2nd row in M.1 over the last sts and so on. Happy knitting!

Trish Hopkins 25.05.2014 - 21:26:

Can you write out the chart for me, please? Not the symbols, but which rows at beginning/end. For example: seat w row 7, knit 112,follow row 6; turn; k tie 7, knit 112, k row 8; turn. I find your instructions confusing

DROPS Design 26.05.2014 kl. 09:59:

Dear Mrs Hopkins, start reading diagram at the bottom corner on the right side, and start rows reading from the right towards the left, end rows reading pattern from the left towards the right. Happy knitting!

Charlotte 12.05.2014 - 22:19:

Hej på den pind hvor jeg skal starte med at strikke 3 pind i mønster og så retmasker og slutte med anden pind i mønsteret, er det rigtigt og hvad skal jeg så fortsætte med ? 4 pind først så retmasker og slutte med 3 pind??

DROPS Design 13.05.2014 kl. 16:11:

Hej Charlotte. Ja, det er korrekt. Du er hele tiden 1 pind "bagud" i mönstret i den anden side af arbejdet.

Maria 21.08.2013 - 21:39:

Ich bin mit der Aussage "Faden abreissen" etwas unsicher - was soll das bedeuten? Strickt man nun mit einem Faden oder mit zwei doppelt? Was bringt das Anschlagen der Maschen mit 2 Fäden?

DROPS Design 22.08.2013 kl. 08:11:

Liebe Maria, das war auf Deutsch etwas unglücklich formuliert, wir haben das nun überarbeitet: der eine Faden wird abgeschnitten und es wird mit nur 1 Faden weitergstrickt. Lediglich die Anschlag- und Abkettkante wird mit doppeltem Faden gearbeitet, damit sie nicht zu fest wird.

Samanta 26.07.2012 - 00:02:

Ma quando le istruzioni dicono di lavorare il 1 ferro del diagramma m1 significa che devo partire dall'ultimo rigo da destra verso sinistra?

DROPS Design 27.07.2012 kl. 16:46:

Si inizia sempre in basso a destra e si lavora verso sinistra. Buon lavoro!

Ria 12.06.2012 - 21:52:

Ik snap niets van dit patroon en met mij mijn vriendinnen niet. Moet er gemeerderd worden?

DROPS Design 13.06.2012 kl. 10:19:

Bij het breien van M.1 aan de zijkanten komen er automatisch meer steken bij (bekijk de teltekening). Er is in elke 2e nld een extra omslag. In de tweede laatste nld van de teltekening kant u deze extra st weer af.

Bodil 08.04.2012 - 21:55:

Ja du skal fortsette med bare en tråd etter opplegget
