Cast on 3 sts on circular needle size 5.5 mm with Nepal. K 6 rows. After 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), 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.

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

See diagrams A.1 to A.8. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

Worked back and forth on circular needle from the neck and down with 3 sts in garter st in each side. Cast on 9 sts on circular needle size 5.5 mm with Nepal and K 1 row - if a thicker cast on edge is desired - SEE KNITTING TIP ABOVE.
Now work pattern according to diagram A.1, 1st row = WS. After A.1 there are 21 sts on needle.
Then work as follows from RS: 3 sts in garter st, A.2 (= 7 sts), 1 st in stocking (= mid st), A.2 (= 7 sts) and 3 sts in garter st. On every row from WS, P all sts and YOs but work the 3 sts in each side in garter st. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically (= 8 rows), there are 41 sts on needle.
Work next row as follows from RS: 3 sts in garter, A.3 (= 4 sts) and A.4 (= 10 sts) and A.5 (= 3 sts), 1 st in stocking (= mid st), A.3 (= 4 sts) and A.4 (= 10 sts) and A.5 (= 3 sts), finish with 3 sts in garter st. Continue the pattern like this – NOTE: Every time A.3-A.5 is worked 1 time vertically there is 1 repetition more of A.4 on each side of mid st. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Work until piece measures approx. 48 cm measured along mid st - adjust after one whole repetition of A.3/A.4/A.5 vertically but do not work last row on last repetition.
Work next row from WS as follows: 3 sts in garter st, A.8 (= 8 sts) and then A.7 (= 10 sts) until 9 sts remain before mid st, work A.6 (= 9 sts), 1 st in stocking st, A.8 (= 8 sts) and repeat A.7 (= 10 sts) until 12 sts remain, work A.6 (= 9 sts) and finish with 3 sts in garter st.

Then work as follows from RS: 3 sts in garter st, A.6 and then A.7 until 8 sts remain before mid st, work A.8, 1 st in stocking st, A.6 and repeat A.7 until 11 sts remain, work A.8 and finish with 3 sts in garter st. Continue pattern like this until piece measures approx. 66 cm measured along mid st – adjust so that last row is worked from WS. Now K 1 row from RS while AT THE SAME TIME inc with 1 YO inside the 3 sts in garter st and on each side of mid st (= 4 sts inc). K 1 row from WS. Loosely cast off from RS as follows: Cast off the first 3 sts, make 1 YO, cast off YO, cast off all sts until mid st, make 1 YO, cast off YO, cast off mid st, make 1 YO, cast off YO, cast off until 3 sts remain, make 1 YO, cast off YO, cast off the remaining sts.


= K from RS, P from WS
= K from WS
= K 2 tog
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso.
= 1 YO between 2 sts

Si può fare anche con i ferri non circolari?

DROPS Design 11.03.2019 kl. 14:13:

Buongiorno Serena. Si lavora avanti e indietro sui ferri. Vengono però consigliati i ferri circolari perché più comodi per lavorare con un numero elevate di maglie. Buon lavoro!

Après la maille centrale dois-je tricoté le deuxième côté en lisant A5 de gauche à droite ainsi que A4 et terminer par A3 .Merci de la réponse car je suis un peu predue

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 11:48:

Bonjour Mme Lelarge, vous tricotez ainsi: 3 m point mousse, A.3, A.4, A.5, 1 m centrale, A.3, A.4, A.5, 3 m point mousse. Les diagrammes se lisent de droite à gauche tous les rangs sur l'endroit et de gauche à droite tous les rangs sur l'envers. Bon tricot!

Robert Sylviane 10.06.2018 - 00:26:

Le châle est magnifique Mais je suis bloquée à A3 A4 A5 Si on a A4 supplémentaire de chaque côté maille centrale on se retrouve avec dernier m jetée de A5 puis on reprend dur première m jetée de A4 donc 2 jetées de suite Merci de votre réponse

DROPS Design 11.06.2018 kl. 09:15:

Bonjour Mme Robert, A.4 commence par 1 jeté, 1 diminution et se termine par 1 diminution, 1 jeté et 1 m end. Quand vous répétez les diagrammes en hauteur, tricotez A.3 sur les 4 premières mailles, tricotez maintenant 2 fois A.4 et tricotez 1 foix A.5 sur les 4 m suivantes. Quand ces diagrammes ont été tricotés 1 fois en hauteur, vous avez suffisamment de mailles pour un motif de A.4 en plus en largeur entre A.3 et A.5. Bon tricot!

Hallo,ich bin fast fertig mit diesem wunderschönen Tuch.Zum Schluss heißt es in der Anleitung „Nun 1 Hin-R stricken und gleichzeitig 1 Umschlag nach/vor den 3 Kraus re-M auf beiden Seiten des Tuchs machen...“ Stricke ich im Muster weiter und lasse am Anfang, vor und hinter der mittleren Masche und am Ende die zusammen gestrickten Maschen weg, damit ich 4 M zunehme, oder wird alles re gestrickt? Vielen Dank für die Hilfe!

DROPS Design 20.11.2017 kl. 09:35:

Liebe Susanne, diese Hin-Reihe wird rechts mit den 4 Zunahmen gestrickt, dann stricken Sie die Rückreihe rechts. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

To make a larger size than what the model is wearing, how do I know how much yarn to buy?

DROPS Design 21.10.2017 kl. 23:11:

Dear Fran, the given yarn amounts are for the piece in the picture. Actual yardage needed to make a bigger garnment depends on factors like the gauge you are knitting with (whether you knit thighter or looser), and the size you want to achieve. If I would want to make this shawl bigger I would buy about 100-150 grams more yarn, and do more repeats of pattern A.3-A.5. Then, you can still "cheat" with the edging (A.6 -A.8) and knit more or less repeats (doing a slightly wider or narrower edge). Happy Knitting!

Hvor meget garn skal der til opskriften?

DROPS Design 08.09.2017 kl. 14:24:

Hei Lisbeth. Garnmengden til sjalet finner du til høyre for bildet/eller under bildet. God Fornøyelse!

Paola Rotelli 22.01.2017 - 18:47:

Grazie, siete sempre gentilissimi

Paola Rotelli 22.01.2017 - 15:48:

Buonasera, volevo sapere se il primo diagramma A1 mostra sia i ferri dal diritto che quelli dal rovescio. Grazie

DROPS Design 22.01.2017 kl. 16:06:

Buonasera Paola. Sì sono riportati tutti i ferri, sia sul diritto che sul rovescio. La prima riga del diagramma viene lavorata sul rovescio del lavoro. Buon lavoro!

Sikke et smukt sjal i en dejlig varm farve.

Orsi 04.01.2016 - 13:24:

Can somebody help me decide how exactly the A4 section is? I got to the point where I have to start doubling the A4 -s, but can't decide whether it starts with a YO or a decrease. Same goes for the end of the section: does A4 end with a st or a YO? Hope to get an answer soon, and thanks in advance :-)

DROPS Design 04.01.2016 kl. 14:40:

Dear Orsi, A.4 starts with a YO, then dec 1 st and finish with dec 1 st, YO, K1, so that number of sts in A.4 keep constant. Happy knitting!
