NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
See diagram A.1. Diagram shows all rows in pattern from RS.

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

When turning mid piece, slip first st. Tighten thread and continue as before. This is done to avoid holes at the turns.

Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 92 sts on circular needle size 7 mm/US 10.75 with Verdi. Work as follows – from RS: diagram A.1 over the first 8 sts, then work in GARTER ST over the other sts - see explanation above.
AT THE SAME TIME work short rows as follows - read KNITTING TIP.
NOTE! Sts in A.1 are always counted as 8 sts: * 1 row over the first 8 sts (= A.1), turn and work back, 1 row over A.1 + 3 sts, turn and work back, 1 row over A.1 + 6 sts, turn and work back, 1 row over A.1 + 9 sts, turn and work back.
Continue with short rows by working 3 sts more on every turn until 2 rows have been worked over all sts *, repeat from *-* until piece measures approx. 205 cm/ 81” around the outer edge of the half circle (approx. 8 repetitions with short rows have been worked). Bind off. Tighten tog in the middle by pulling a thread through the inner sts and tighten tog.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= K
= 1 YO between 2 sts
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso
= bind off one st

Er det for hver retpind der skal øges med 3 masker?

DROPS Design 05.10.2017 kl. 08:52:

Hej igen, nej du tager ikke ud, du strikker bare over 3 masker mere for hver gang, inden du vender. God fornøjelse!

Annie 03.10.2017 - 13:29:

Er det korrekt forstået at jeg tager 3 nye masker med for hver retpind,?en såkan jeg ikke se hvordan sjalet bliver stort nok? Skal man, når alle 92 masker er med, gøre noget?

DROPS Design 05.10.2017 kl. 08:51:

Hej Annie, du strikker 3 masker mere for hver gang du vender midt i arbejdet. Det gør du til du har strikket 2 hele pinde over alle masker. Når du har gjort det, gentager du fra *til* til arbejdet måler ca 205cm langs med yderste kant (den længste kant). God fornøjelse!

Hej! Jag förstår inte vad "drag åt mitt på, genom de innersta maskorna" innebär. Vad är de innersta m. o hur långt? Helena

DROPS Design 13.09.2017 kl. 12:58:

Helene Det är de innersta maskorna, som är uppe i nacken av tjejen på bilden. Lycka till!

Hilde Storbæk 09.07.2017 - 13:07:

Hei! Skal alle 92 maskene strikkes hver gang? Eller skal jeg bare utvide med tre masker og vende og la resten stå? Sjalet er alldeles nydelig, men jeg er redd jeg gjør noe feil slik at det ikke blir 205 cm bredt/langt.... :)

DROPS Design 09.07.2017 kl. 15:31:

Hei Hilde, Ja, du skal utvide med tre masker på enden av hvert rad før du snur, og la de resterende maskene stå. Med vennlig hilsen, Deirdre

This is a lovely shawl! I understand how to add 3 stitches for each row to increase at an angle. However, once the pattern is knit to the full number of cast-on stitches, I don't understand why we go back to the short rows (8, 8 plus 3, 8 plus 6, etc.) to complete the shawl, which appears to be what the pattern indicates. Shouldn't we knit the full number of stitches and then reduce by 3, 6, 9, etc. stitches for the opposite side? Thank you.

DROPS Design 03.05.2017 kl. 08:40:

Dear Nevada Knitter, to get the half-circle shape, you will have to repeat the short rows on the same side, so that you will have more rows on the edge towards outside and few rows on the "tip" of short rows which will be mid on neck. Happy knitting!

HJÆLP! Jeg får A1 til at giv 9 masker. Hvad gør jeg forkert ? Jeg følger denne forklaring: 2r,1oms,tag 1 m løs af p, 1 ret, løft den løse over, 1 oms, tag 1 m løs af p, 1 ret, løft den løse over, 1 oms, 2 ret.

DROPS Design 03.11.2016 kl. 16:17:

Hej Dianna. Ja, det er rigtigt. Du strikker over 8 m, men tager en maske ud i p 1, 3, 5 og 7, saa du har 12 m i pind 8, som du saa lukker af igen til 8 - saa faar du den takkede kant som du ogsaa kan se paa billedet :)

Hej. Hvormeget Drops Melody skal jeg bruge til at strikke dette sjal

DROPS Design 31.10.2016 kl. 15:17:

Hej Mona. 350 gr Verdi = 1225 m, 50 gr. Melody = 140 m. Laes her hvordan du kan beregne det rette antal nögler

Veronique 05.11.2015 - 19:35:

Bonjour, Je voudrais savoir combien il faut commander de laine pour faire ce châle en Melody ? Merci !

DROPS Design 06.11.2015 kl. 14:18:

Bonjour Véronique, il ne fallait pas une pelote complète de Verdi pour réaliser le châle entier et ne pouvons pas être certain de la quantité de Melody, mais au regard des quantités utilisées par d'autres, il devrait vous falloir approximativement 6-7 pelotes. Bon tricot!

Esther 20.09.2015 - 17:15:

Me podrían enviar a mi correo una explicación más clara de cómo realizar el chal???? Es que no lo entiendo muy bien

DROPS Design 23.09.2015 kl. 09:10:

Hello, I am writing to inquire about the yarn used for this shawl. According to one site I came across while searching for the yarn, you have discontinued Verdi. If this is the case, which yarn, or yarns, would you suggest using in it's place? I love the look of this shawl and would like to keep it as close to the original pattern as possible. Thank you for your time and help!

DROPS Design 04.09.2015 kl. 09:59:
