Pattern instructions

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.
This garment 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.

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

See diagrams A.1 to A.6. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

Inc with YO, YO should not be twisted on next row but should make a hole in the piece.

Worked back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 63 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Lace, insert 2 markers in the piece on each side of the middle 57 sts. Continue in stocking st with 1 edge st in GARTER ST - READ EXPLANATION ABOVE in each side of piece - AT THE SAME TIME inc as follows - READ INCREASE TIP ABOVE:
Inc 1 st in each side inside 1 edge st on every row and inc 1 st on each side of the middle 57 sts every other row. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue like this until inc have been done 46 times in total on each side of the 57 sts and 92 times in each side = 339 sts on needle.
NOTE! Adjust so that last row is from RS. On next row from WS inc 1 st inside edge st in each side = 341 sts.
Piece now measures approx. 30 cm mid back.
Then work PATTERN - READ EXPLANATION ABOVE! according to diagrams A.1 to A.3, beg from RS as follows: Work 1 edge st in garter st, A.1 (= 6 sts), A.2 until 4 sts remain on needle, then work diagram A.3 and finish with 1 edge st in garter st. Work diagram 4 times vertically in total. Then work diagrams A.4 to A.6 the same way. After last row in diagram P 1 row from WS before loosely casting off with K from RS. Cast off with a YO for every YO from last row in diagram to make the edge extra elastic and easy to stretch and shape. Piece measures approx. 50 cm vertically.

Place the shawl in lukewarm water until it is soaking wet. Carefully squeeze out the water from the shawl - do not twist. Then roll the shawl in a towel and squeeze to remove more water - the piece will now only be moist. Place the shawl on a carpet or mattress - carefully stretch it out to measurements. On this shawl tips can be made in the bottom edge by stretching a little extra where 2 K sts are (diagram A.5). Also stretch the edge st in each side at the bottom of edge, fasten pins in each tip and along the other edges. Leave shawl to dry. Repeat the process when the garment has been washed.

This pattern has been corrected. .

A.1 (row 2.& 6.) and A.3 (row 6.,8. & 10.)

Jak należy przerobić pierwsze dwa oczka w rzędzie 1 motywu A2? Czy są to dwa narzuty jeden po drugim? Jeśli tak, to w jaki sposób są przerabiane w rzędzie 2 - jako 2 oczka lewe, czy jako jedno oczko? Bardzo dziękuję za wyjaśnienia.

Witaj Iro! Tutaj wykonujesz 1 narzut, oczko prawe, 1 narzut. Pamiętaj, że rząd nie zaczyna się od schematu A.2. Rząd zaczynamy: 1 o. brzeg. ściegiem francuskim, A.1 (= 6 o.), A.2 aż zostaje 4 o., dalej przer. A.3 i zakończyć przerabiając 1 o. brzeg. ściegiem francuskim. Powodzenia!

What are your best tips on preventing the shawl from curling?

Vicki 21.08.2018 - 20:30:

I have a question about "insert 2 markers in the piece on each side of the middle 57 sts". I cast on 63 stitches, on the next row do I put a marker after stitch 4 and then again after stitch 60?

DROPS Design 22.08.2018 kl. 07:25:

Hi Vicki, Yes, that is right. Happy knitting!

Dobrý den, poprosím, šlo by doplnit tuhle větu česky? NB! Avpass slik at siste p er fra retten. På neste p fra vrangen økes det 1 m innenfor kant-m i hver side = 341 m. Aby další měli správný počet ok. Nesouhlasilo mi to se vzorem, tak jsem pátrala :-) Moc děkuji Hano. S pozdravem Monika Opočenská

Je cherche le patron écris au lieu du diagramme. Est-ce disponible?

DROPS Design 26.02.2018 kl. 09:00:

Bonjour Diane, nous n'avons que des diagrammes pour ce modèle, lisez les diagrammes en commençant en bas à droite, de droite à gauche sur l'endroit et de gauche à droite sur l'envers, vous trouverez la légende des diagrammes juste au-dessus. Bon tricot!

Merci+++++pour la vidéo qui explique comment rabattre en ajoutant un jeté! Si je comprends bien, on ne fait pas ces jetés à chaque maille rabattue mais seulement sur les mailles vis à vis les jetés du dernier rang du motif n'est ce pas?

DROPS Design 05.09.2017 kl. 08:47:

Bonjour Christine, faites 1 jeté avant chaque jeté du dernier rang du diagramme, et rabattez-le comme une maille normale (comme montré dans la vidéo). Bon tricot!

Grazie! sempre gentili e rapidi nelle risposte!!

Lelletta 16.03.2017 - 19:20:

Buonasera! Vorrei eseguire questo scialle con safran o cotton viscose perchè mi serve fresco ed elegante. quale mi consigliate?Devo comprare la stessa quantità?

DROPS Design 16.03.2017 kl. 19:34:

Buonasera Lelletta. Può usare il filato che preferisce. Cotton Viscose è un filato lucido. Le ricordiamo anche che Lace è comunque un filato molto leggero, adatto anche per scialli estivi. Per calcolare la quantità di filato necessario quando si lavora con un filato diverso, può fare riferimento alla seguente: pagina. Buon lavoro!
