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 diagrams A.1 (= hat) and A.2 (= shawl). Diagrams show pattern from RS.

DECREASE TIP (applies to hat):
Dec 1 st by K 2 sts tog. NOTE: Do not dec on round with holes. Displace if needed dec until round before or after.

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

Cast on 100-108 sts with Karisma on circular needle size 3 mm and work rib = K 2/P 2 for 4 cm. Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm and work PATTERN according to diagram A.1. When piece measures 17-20 cm, insert 10-12 markers in the hat, 10-9 sts apart. On next round, dec 1 st after all markers – READ DECREASE TIP (switch to double pointed needles when needed). Repeat dec every other round 8-7 more times = 10-12 sts remain on needle. On next round K all sts tog 2 by 2. Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. The hat measures approx. 23-25 cm vertically.

The piece is worked back and forth on circular needle because of no of sts.
Cast on 3 sts on circular needle size 5 mm with Karisma. K 6 rows. At the end of 6th row do not turn piece but rotate 90 degrees clockwise, knit up 3 sts along the edge (i.e. 1 st in every ridge (1 ridge = 2 rows in garter st)), rotate piece again, 90 degrees clockwise and knit up 3 sts along cast on edge (i.e. 1 st in every st) = 9 sts on needle. Then work as follows:
Row 1 (= WS): K 3, P 3 and K 3.
Row 2 (= RS): K 3, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 3 = 13 sts on needle.
Row 3 (= WS): K 3, P 2, P YO twisted, P 1, P YO twisted, P 2, K 3.
Row 4 (= RS): K 3, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 3 (= mid sts), 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 3 = 19 sts on needle.
Row 5 (= WS): K 3, P 13 and K 3.

Work next row as follows from RS: K 3, 1 YO, work pattern according to diagram A.2 until the 3 mid sts, 1 YO, K 3, 1 YO, work pattern according to diagram A.2 until 3 sts remain on needle, finish with 1 YO and K 3.
Work as follows from WS: K 3, P YO, work A.2 until YO before mid sts, P YO, P the 3 mid sts, P YO, work A.2 until YO before the 3 last sts on row, P YO and K the 3 last sts. Continue pattern like this, i.e. the 3 outermost sts in each side on shawl are worked K on every row, inc 4 sts on every row from RS by making 1 YO inside the 3 outermost sts in each side and on each side of the 3 mid sts (P YOs on every row from WS), work the 3 mid sts in stocking st and the other sts according to diagram A.2.
When A.2 has been worked 2 times vertically (piece measures approx. 47 cm in knitting direction and approx. 66 cm in the middle), work in garter st over all sts with 4 inc as before (also work mid sts in garter st). Loosely cast off after approx. 6 cm in garter st or when piece measures 75 cm in the middle – NOTE: To avoid the tip from bending in cast off edge, cast off as follows (applies to the 3 mid sts): * Cast off 1 st, make 1 YO on right needle, cast off YO *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, then loosely cast off the remaining sts as before.


= K from RS, P from WS
= P from RS, K from WS
= beg here
= 1 YO between 2 sts
= K 2 tog

This was my first shawl and I loved the design! Simple to follow and easy stitches. My only problem was finding mistakes (I'm relatively new to knitting) near the increases - I got frustrated a few times but managed to tink my way back and now have a lovely piece of work! Thank you!

Kannataisi tarkistaa ohjeessa annetut mitat. On ilmoitettu, että pituus on 75 cm. Kuitenkin ohjeen mukaan neulotaan 6 cm aina oikeaa sen jälkeen, kun neuleen korkeus on n. 47 cm! Kallion laskuopin mukaan siitä kertyy vasta 53 cm, Pitäisikö kenties mallikerta toistaa 3 kertaa vai missä vika? Onneksi olen tottunut neuloja, joten "sävelsin" oman version. Ensikertalainen on ehkä ymmällään.

Nella prima ripetizione del motivo A2 dello scialle, precisamente nel primo ferro con motivo 2 ins e 1 gettato, ho lavorato il get dopo le 3 m a legaccio e quando sono arrivata alle ultime 2 maglie insieme a diritto (prima delle 3 centrali) mi è rimasta una m da lavorare, che è quella del gettato precedente, e le 3 maglie rasate centrali. Come è possibile? Ho sbagliato qualcosa? M potete spiegare meglio questo ferro?

Buongiorno Giulia. Abbiamo chiesto una verifica del grafico e delle spiegazioni. Eventuali correzioni verranno inserite direttamente on line. Buon lavoro!

Hi, I am just starting to knit the hat and noted that the A1 diagram says to knit on the right side and purl on the wrong side, but since the hat is knit in the round which is the right and which is the wrong side? Should I put a stitch marker at the end of a round and then switch to the opposite stitch? Also, the A1 pattern is over 24 stitches but I will be working with 100 stitches, so what do I do with the 2 extra? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks, Lorraine

DROPS Design 02.12.2015 kl. 09:48:

Dear Mrs Anderson, A.1 is worked in the round, but the same symbol are used for A.2 (worked back and forth), when working A.1 only follow the "from RS" - A.1 is worked over 6 sts x 24 rows: repeat 16 times the 6 sts in A.1 and finish with the first 4 sts = 100 sts - read more about diagrams here. Happy knitting!

Bonjour, SVP,Comment fait on pour les augmentations, lorsqu'on change de point et que l'on se retrouve avec plusieurs rangs endroit???

DROPS Design 16.11.2015 kl. 17:58:

Bonjour Mme Le Youdec, tricotez les augmentations comme les mailles des diagrammes (à l'env sur l'env ou à l'end sur l'env). Bon tricot!

Hej! När jag ska börja på varv 23 på sjalen så har jag totalt 63 maskor. När jag gör varv 23 enligt mönstret så får jag en maska över innan de 3 maskorna i mitten. Vad ska jag göra med den? Har jag gjort fel någonstans?

DROPS Design 15.05.2015 kl. 14:09:

Hej Anna, Svårt att gissa, men om du inte vill börja om så kan du bara sticka den rät som de andra. Jag är säker på at det vill bli bra! Lycka till!

Natalie 06.01.2014 - 11:38:
