DROPS CIRCULAR NEEDLE (80 cm) SIZE 3.5 mm – NOTE: Read about the knitting tension below.

The shawl is to be soaked and blocked/stretched to size afterwards so the knitting tension is not that important but to get a sense of whether you are working too loose/tight, work a test on needle size 3.5 mm in stocking st and get approx. 23 sts x 30 rows = 10 x 10 cm.

Row 9-12: K from RS, K from WS
Repeat these 12 rows upwards.

All inc are done from RS. Inc 4 sts (1 st in each side, 2 sts in the middle) on every row from RS as follows: 3 sts in garter st, 1 YO, work until st with marker (= mid st), 1 YO, K 1 (= mid st), 1 YO, work until 3 sts remain on row, 1 YO, 3 sts in garter st. On next row (from WS) K all sts incl YOs.

Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts. The shawl is worked from mid back and down.
Cast on 7 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Lace. Insert 1 marker in 4th st (= mid st) and move it upwards in mid st when working. Work 1st row as follows (= RS): 3 sts in GARTER ST - read explanation above, 1 YO, K 1 (= mid st with marker), 1 YO, 3 sts in garter st = 9 sts. Then work LACE PATTERN with 3 sts in garter st each side while AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 sts on every row from RS - Read INCREASE TIP! Continue inc until there are 229 sts on the needle. Piece measures approx. 37 cm measured in knitting direction from cast-on edge to needle. Now work as follows: 3 sts in garter st, A.1, A.2 over the next 108 sts, work until 2 sts remain before mid st, work A.3, 1 st in garter st (= mid st), A.1, A.2 over the next 108 sts until 5 sts remain, work A.3 and 3 sts in garter st. Continue to work according to A.1/A.2/A.3 until diagrams have been worked 4 times in total vertically. Every time A.1/A.2/A.3 have been worked 1 time vertically, there is room for 2 more repetitions of A.2 between A.1 and A.3 on each side of mid st - AT THE SAME TIME on last row of last repetition (= WS) inc 8 sts evenly by working 2 sts in 1 st = 301 sts. Work 2 ridges in garter st over all sts (remember inc as before in each side and in the middle), cast off.

Work back and forth according to A.4, AT THE SAME TIME work edge tog with shawl – beg at the top of shawl and fasten edge along left diagonal side down to tip. Knit edge to shawl as follows - on every row from RS: Pick up the outermost st in front loop from shawl with right needle, work first st from left needle (1st st in A.4), pass the new st over, work the rest of row.
When lace edge has been worked all the way down to tip of shawl, work in garter st over all sts, AT THE SAME TIME cast off 1 st at beg of every row from WS, continue in garter st until all sts have been cast off.

Repeat along the right side of shawl but now work according to A.5. Knit edge to shawl as follows - on every row from WS: Pick up the outermost st in front loop from shawl with right needle, work first st from left needle (1st st in A.5), pass the new st over, work the rest of row.

Place the shawl in lukewarm water until it is soaking wet. Carefully squeeze the water out of the shawl - do not twist the shawl - then roll the shawl in a towel and squeeze to remove more water - the shawl will now only be moist.

Leave shawl to dry like this. Repeat the process when the shawl has been washed.

Und in einer der vorherigen Antworten heißt es, man müsse auf jeder Seite der Mittelmasche 150 M haben, ich habe aber 154 M, denn in den letzten zwei Krausrippen sollte doch auch noch zugenommen werden, oder nicht? Vielen Dank vorab :-)

DROPS Design 05.03.2019 kl. 09:37:

Liebe Lisa, ja genau Maschenanzahl stimmt, Sie wiederholen dann A.4 insegamt 25 Mal und dann bei der letzten Rapport von A.4 wenn alle Maschen vom Tuch zusammen mit der Bordüre gestrickt sind, stricken Sie kraus rechts über alle Maschen, und gleichzeitig ketten Sie 1 M am Anfang jeder Rückreihe ab bis alle Maschen der Bordüre abgekettet sind. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Lisa 04.03.2019 - 16:46:

Vielen Dank für die schnelle Antwort, genau so ist es ja auch in der Anleitung beschrieben, und die verstehe ich eben nicht ;-)... Das Video startet auch leider nicht am Anfang, wo wahrscheinlich mein Denkfehler liegt. Muss ich in der ersten Reihe nur die erste Masche verbinden? An welcher Stelle verbinde ich denn die zweite Masche?

DROPS Design 05.03.2019 kl. 09:32:

Liebe Lisa, am Anfang jeder Hinreihe fassen Sie 1 M vom Tuch auf, und diese Masche wird dann mit der 1. M von der Bordüre abgenommen, und so weiter stricken, dh bei der Rückreihe stricken Sie das Diagram wie gezeigt (links nach rechts) und am Anfang jeder Hinreihe 1 M vom Tuch auffassen und mit der 1. M von der Bordure abnehmen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Lisa 04.03.2019 - 15:56:

Liebes Drops-Team, das ist mein erstes Tuch und ich konnte der Anleitung bis zur Bordüre auch gut folgen, aber an dieser verzweifle ich noch :-( ... Gibt es vielleicht ein Video, in dem man den Anfang sehen kann? Ich verstehe die Anweisung nicht, wie der Rand mit der Bordüre verbunden werden soll.

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 16:22:

Liebe Lisa, in diesem Video wird es gezeigt, wie Sie die Bordüre und dem Tuch zusammenstricken, dh in jeder Hinreihe fassen Sie 1 M vom Tuch auf, die erste M der linken Nadel (Bordüre/A.4) stricken, und die aufgefassene Masche über die gestrickte Maschen überziehen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Christel Zondagh 15.12.2017 - 10:46:

Thanks for the previous answer. I am still battling with the lace edge. Do I have to attach the last stitch of the wrong side row to the edge as well or only the first stitch of the RS row?

DROPS Design 15.12.2017 kl. 11:06:

Dear Mrs Zondagh, when working lace edge together with shawl, at the beginning of RS rows worked on lace edge, pick up 1 st from shawl with right needle, work the first st on left needle (= 1st st in A.4 for the lace edge) and pass the picked up st from shawl over the worked stitch, work remaining sts on row, turn and work WS row. Along right side of shawl, from WS: pick up a stitch from shawl, work 1st st on lace edge (= 1st st in A.5) and pass the picked up st over the worked st, work remaining st on row, turn and work next row from RS. Happy knitting!

Christel 29.10.2017 - 21:01:

Hi, regarding the lace edge: 1.How many "leaves on one side of the shawl? 2. Are there 154 stitches on each side of the shawl? 3. Do you have to attach every row to the edge of the shawl? 4. Is there a tutorial on something similar?

DROPS Design 26.11.2017 kl. 17:21:

Dear Christel, according to the pattern, after the last row of the body of the shawl, you should have 301 stitch on the row, that makes 150 stitch on both side and the middle stitch. Yes, you have to attach the edge to the body by knitting the first stitch of every RS row together a stitch from teh body. I hope this helps. Happy knitting!

Hilde 29.08.2017 - 09:45:

Er staat: Ga verder en brei volgens A.1/A.2/A.3 tot de telpatronen in totaal 4 keer in de hoogte zijn gebreid. houden we nog rekening met de middenste steek? wordt daar nog een omslag gebreid?

DROPS Design 04.11.2017 kl. 16:07:

Hallo Hilde, Jazeker, de middensteek brei je daarnaast ook gewoon verder zoals in de tekst staat.

Christel 25.05.2017 - 21:55:

Hi! 1. I understand that there is an increase of 8 stitches after every A1, A2, A3 repetition. So after 4 times in total, I would have increased it by 32 stitches. And then 8 more before I start the lace edge. But where do the rest come from to get to 301 stitches? 2. When doing A1, A2, A3, must I start every row with 3 sts in garter stitch? Even the pearl rows? Thanks!

DROPS Design 26.05.2017 kl. 11:03:

Dear Christel, you are working A.1, A.2 and A.3 on both sides of the middle st, ie you will inc 8 sts in diagrams on each side = 16 sts inc for every repeat in height. You work diagrams 4times in height x 16 sts inc = 64 sts inc + 229 sts + 8 sts inc evenly on last row from WS = 301 sts. Happy knitting!

Je comprends que ma question à déjà été posée mais je ne sais pas traduire...mon problème concerne le point fantaisie et le rang 8 car je n' ai pas un nombre pair: 3 mousse + 7m +1 m centrale +7m + 3 mousse Merci pour votre aide

DROPS Design 30.05.2016 kl. 09:44:

Bonjour Mme Caillot, vous augmentez 4 m tous les 2 rangs (= tous les rangs sur l'endroit), au rang 8, vous avez augmentez 4 x (rangs 1,3,5 et 7) et vous avez 25 m, tricotez: 3 m end, (*2 m ens à l'end, 1 jeté* répétez de *-* et terminez par 1 m end)), la m centrale, répétez de (à) et 3 m end. Bon tricot!

I sjal nr150-38 skal blonden strikkes sammen meb sjalet. Det står at det skal plukke opp 1m fra høyre og så strikke det sammen med 1 maske fra venstre. Jeg fårstår det, men hva gjør jeg videre??

DROPS Design 01.10.2015 kl. 16:51:

Hej, Jo men så vender du bare og strikker tilbage over blonden. Således strikker du frem og tilbage over blonden og strikker den sammen med kanten på andenhver p. God fornøjelse!

Eva 05.07.2015 - 14:07:

Ich komme mit dem Lochmuster nicht klar. Ich habe 3 M kraus rechts als Rand, dann eine ungerade Zahl M, dann 1 Mittelmasche, wieder eine ungerade Zahl M und dann die 3 M Rand. Wie kann ich da Lochmuster *2 M re zusammen, 1 Umschlag* stricken? Dafür brauche ich doch eine gerade Anzahl M.

DROPS Design 06.07.2015 kl. 11:11:

Sie stricken die M, die übrig bleibt, einfach re. Auf diese Weise erscheint das Muster dann auch jeweils beidseitig symmetrisch.
