Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
Row 1 (= RS): * K 1, 2 YO *, repeat from *-* until 1 st remains and finish with K 1.
Row 2 (= WS): K while slipping the YOs from previous row off the needle (= dropped sts). NOTE! Remember the inc.
Row 3: As 1st row.
Row 4: As 2nd row.
Row 5: As 1st row.
Row 6: As 2nd row.
Row 7 to 12: K all sts.
Repeat rows 1 to 12.

The shawl is worked top down. The shawl is worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts.
Cast on 3 sts on needle size 5.5 mm / US 9 with Big Delight. Insert 1 marker in the middle st = mid back of shawl. Work as follows (1st row = WS): K 1, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 1 = 5 sts. K back over all sts, K the YOs twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes.
Work next row as follows: (K 1, P 1) in first st, K 1, (K 1, P 1, K 1) in next st, (K 1, P 1) in next st, K 1 = 9 sts. K back over all sts as before. Continue to K back and forth over all sts. AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 sts on every row from WS by working (K 1, P 1) in the first st on row and in the next to last st on row, and by working (K 1, P 1, K 1) in the middle st with marker. Continue like this until there are 57 sts on the needle. Now inc 6 sts on every row from WS by working (K 1, P 1, K 1) in the first st on row, the middle st with marker and the last st on row AT THE SAME TIME on next row from RS start with PATTERN - see explanation above.
Repeat pattern a total of 5 times. Piece measures approx. 58 cm / 22 3/4'' measured in knitting direction, not down the middle, but vertically from cast on and down to needle (finish after 6th row in pattern in the last repetition).
Now continue with inc on every row from WS as before while AT THE SAME TIME knitting back and forth over all sts. Continue like this until piece measures 62 cm / 24½''. Now bind off as follows: * bind off 3 sts, make 1 YO on right needle, bind off YO *, repeat from *-* the entire row.

Place the piece in lukewarm water until it is soaking wet. Carefully squeeze out the water - do not twist. Then roll the piece in a towel and squeeze to remove more water - the piece will now only be moist. This shawl should hang when drying, stretch the piece to measurements and and hang it nicely so that top edge is straight and the tip mid back hangs down. Leave it to dry like this. Repeat the process when the shawl has been washed.

Hej, De två instruktionsvideor med ökning av 2m i 1m samt 3m i 1m som rekommenderas som hjälp till detta mönstret visar räta maskor från rätsidan såvitt jag kan förstå?. I mönstret ska man sticka 1rm, 1av och 1rm, 1av, 1rm i m på avigsidan men jag kan inte hitta någon video på det?

Det er kun de 2 eller 3 maskene i parentes som skal strikkes i samme maske. Du kan absolutt følge videoen men isteden for å strikke nr 2 masken rett så strikker du den vrang (i bakerste maskebue). Legger ved en video av hvordan å øke vrangmasker i en maske. God fornøyelse

Thank you for your prompt reply. The video helped a lot and I can see that I was knitting the stitches too tightly. It's working a lot better now.

I'm having trouble with the pattern section of the Tequila Sunrise shawl. The 1st row of the pattern says k1, 2YO to the end. The second row I drop the Yo's off but they have tightened so much on the needle I am having a lot of trouble getting them off. Do you have any tips please.

DROPS Design 14.03.2017 kl. 09:56:

Dear Mrs Coleman, the video below shows how to work 2 YOs dropped on next row, try to avoid tighting YOs too much when working them. Happy knitting!

Beautiful yarn, fun design to knit. I have been KNITTING each double yarnover which is making the whole project difficult. I was thinking I would need a needle 10 kilometers long as the increases are exponential! It will be a breeze to knit AS WRITTEN! Drops has given me so much joy. Thank you!

Ik begrijp niet hoe ik die 58 cm moet meten, de volgende tekst is mij niet duidelijk: Het werk meet nu ongeveer 58 cm gemeten in de breirichting, dus niet in het midden, maar in de hoogte vanaf de opzet tot de nld .

DROPS Design 22.01.2015 kl. 14:10:

Hoi Gerda. Je meet in de breirichting, dwz, meet vanaf de opzetnaald in de richting van de steken (dus eigenlijk een beetje schuin meten)

Annette Stillhoff 26.07.2014 - 14:10:

I pind 7-12 i mønstret, skal der fortsat tages 6 masker ud på hver vrangpind?

DROPS Design 07.08.2014 kl. 12:31:

Hej Annette. Ja, du skal hele tiden tage ud på vrangen.

Ho eseguito il modello dello scialle per regalarlo a mia cognata che compie 60anni. E' venuto molto bello, spero che le piaccia. Vi farò sapere

Martine 11.02.2014 - 15:20:

Bonjour Je suis étonnée car vous indiquez 4 fois le point fantaisie et que selon la photo, je compte 5 fois. Ne faudrait il pas faire une bordure au crochet ?

DROPS Design 11.02.2014 kl. 21:03:

Bonjour Martine, on répète en fait 5 fois au total le point fantaisie, et on arrête après le rang 6 la 5ème fois (modifications faites). Bon tricot!

Leena 11.01.2014 - 20:42:
