KNITTING TIP:
When turning mid piece, slip first st. Tighten thread and continue as before. This is done to avoid holes in the transitions.
--------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 60 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with Delight. Work in garter st as follows - beg from RS: 1 row until 58 sts remain, turn and work back. 1 row until 56 sts remain, turn and work back. Work 2 sts in first st, work until 54 sts remain, turn and work back. 1 row until 52 sts remain, turn and work back. 1 row until 50 sts remain, turn and work back. Work 2 sts in first st, work until 48 sts remain, turn and work back. Continue with short rows until 2 sts less remain on every turn until 2 rows have been worked over the last 2 sts, work 2 rows over all sts. AT THE SAME TIME every 6th row, work 2 sts in first st on row from RS. When 1 whole repetition has been worked (= 60 rows), 10 sts have been inc = 70 sts.

Work next repetition as follows from RS: 1 row until 68 sts remain, turn and work back. 1 row until 66 sts remain, turn and work back. Work 2 sts in first st, work until 64 sts remain, turn and work back. 1 row until 62 sts remain, turn and work back. 1 row until 60 sts remain, turn and work back. Work 2 sts in first st, work until 58 sts remain, turn and work back. Continue with short rows until 2 sts less remain on every turn until 2 rows have been worked over the last 2 sts, work 2 rows over all sts. AT THE SAME TIME every 6th row, work 2 sts in first st on row from RS. When 1 whole repetition has been worked (= 70 rows), 12 sts have been inc = 82 sts.
Continue the same way upwards, for every repetition worked there are more and more sts in the repetition and the repetition extends over several rows.

Continue until 8 repetitions have been worked – there are now approx. 206 sts on row.
Cast off. Tighten tog in the middle by pulling a thread through the inner sts and tighten tog.

CROCHET EDGE:
Work an edge around the entire shawl on hook size 3 mm with Delight as follows: 1 dc, * 3 ch, 1 tr in 1st ch, skip approx. 1 cm, 1 dc *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first dc.

Hei! Mitä tarkoittaa ohjeen lopussa, Neulo 2 krs kaikilla silmukoilla. Neulo SAMALLA joka 6. krs:lla oikean puolen krs:n ensimmäiseen s:aan 2 s. Montako kierrosta neulotaan kaikilla silmukoilla?

In het patroon staat dat je nadat je alle steken weer op de naald hebt deze een toer over moet breien, echter dan krijg je niet alle eindes van de punten in één mooie hoek.

DROPS Design 21.04.2019 kl. 17:47:

Dag Janneke,

Volgens het ontwerp is het wel de bedoeling om deze toer te breien, maar je kan natuurlijk zelf aanpassingen doen om alle delen meer in een punt te laten lopen.

How do you know when to change colours?

DROPS Design 26.10.2018 kl. 09:15:

Dear Mrs Barazzuol, there is no colour change, the colours belong to the yarn, see Shadecard. Happy knitting!

Lisbeth Hansen 09.08.2018 - 11:06:

Har jeg forstået opskriften korrekt - for hver rapport starter man første vende pind med 10 masker mere end den forrige - altså 3. rapport vender jeg når der er 78 masker tilbage?

DROPS Design 15.08.2018 kl. 09:47:

Hej Lisbeth, Når du starter næste rapport har du 82 masker på pinden. Strik til du har 80 masker tilbage og vend, så 78 masker tilbage og vend osv. Du fortsætter med at strikke 2 m i første m fra retsiden på hver 6.pind. God fornøjelse!

Legendre 15.03.2018 - 13:07:

Bonjour combien faudrait-il de pelotes pour réaliser ce modèle en big delight ou en Andes. Merci

DROPS Design 15.03.2018 kl. 13:20:

Bonjour Mme Legendre, ce châle se tricote avec une laine du groupe A (Delight), or Big Delight appartient au groupe C et Andes au groupe E, il apparaît donc difficile d'avoir le même échantillon pour obtenir un châle similaire et donc calculer la quantité. Regardez ou inspirez-vous des modèles de châles en ciblant les laines du groupe C ou celles du groupe E. Bon tricot!

Coleen Gray 29.01.2018 - 20:23:

Re my previous comment, I have done that, I followed the pattern exactly, but it doesn't look anything like the picture, as I said. You can see in the picture where the short rows start, but they work over a large area. Mine are very short, ie 60 stitches, then70, hen 82 and it looks so completely different that I know that something is not right. I am an experienced knitter, so am able to follow a pattern but also able to see when something is not right.

DROPS Design 30.01.2018 kl. 08:29:

Dear Mrs Gray, have you also checked your tension? This pattern has been already made several times successfully (see here for example). You could go to your store and show your project, or send them a picture by mail, so that they could provide you any further assistance. Happy knitting!

Coleen 27.01.2018 - 21:18:

I'm very confused by this pattern, but it is so lovely that I'd really like to complete it. I am on the third repeat , but each of the short row sections is really small compared with how the picture looks. I've worked exactly to the pattern but have completed 3 repetitions and am still on the first ball of wool. I do have the right number of stitches according to the pattern, 82, but it is very small and might make a scarf but not a shawl the size of the one in the picture. Can you help?

DROPS Design 29.01.2018 kl. 09:38:

Dear Coleen, make sure you are working the short rows leaving 2 sts unworked at the end of every other row until you work 2 row over the first 2 sts (increasing at the same time 1 st every 6 rows). First repeat of short rows = 60 rows (= 30 ridges); 2nd repeat of short rows = 70 rows (there are more sts), ie 35 ridges, ie you will have always more sts, so you will work more short rows until 2 sts remain. Happy knitting!

Buona sera.. Io sto eseguendo questo modello.. ma non mi viene l effetto “ondulato”.. come mai? Potrebbe spiegarmi cosa vorrebbe dire: 2 maglie della prima maglia? Saluti

DROPS Design 24.12.2017 kl. 11:06:

Buongiorno Desirèe. Nel video che le alleghiamo viene spiegato come lavorare 2 maglie nella stessa maglia. Buon lavoro!

Desirèe Del Mastro 04.11.2017 - 14:13:

Buonasera,, a me piacerebbe realizzare questo modello, ma avrei qualche lacuna.. Potrei chiedere a voi? Cordiali saluti

Buongiorno Desirèe. Per un aiuto personalizzato può rivolgersi al suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia. Ogni modello è accompagnato dai video che possono aiutarla nella realizzazione. Buon lavoro!

Doreen 11.10.2017 - 17:57:

I am still confused. Knit 1. row until 58 st remain turn and work back (row 1 &2), 1 row until 58 st remains then knit back (row 3&4) knit 2 in first stitch the knit back (row 5+6) that means increase on row 5&11. Then at the same time increase every 6th row??? That's the bit that's confusing me. Is this increase in addition to the increase on row 5&11??

DROPS Design 12.10.2017 kl. 09:03:

Dear Doreen, continue the short rows and increase on every 6th row (after 1st row with inc, ie inc on row 3, 9, 15...). Happy knitting!
