Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts.
Loosely cast on 8 sts on circular needle size 5.5 mm / US 9 with Brushed Alpaca Silk. Work pattern according to A.1. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work pattern as before, i.e. inc 1 st inside 1 edge st at beg of every row and work 1 new lace pattern 11 rows apart vertically. For every pattern repetition vertically work 1 more lace pattern in width 14 sts apart (6 sts in on right side of piece and 7 sts in from left side of piece seen from RS).

When piece measures approx. 70 cm / 27½'' (place piece flat when measuring), adjust to finish nicely with pattern, bind off as follows from RS: * bind off 4 sts, 1 YO, bind off YO *, repeat from *-* the entire row.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= K from RS
= K from WS
= 1 YO between 2 sts, K YO on next row to make hole
= K 2 tog

Hello! I would like to knit this shawl with baby alpaca silk. Could you please help me? How many gr of yarn do I have to buy and what size of needles do I have to use? Also, do I have to use two strands at once or it will be too thick? Thanks, Faidra.

Dear Mrs Koukara, you would need to knit with 2 strands Baby Alpaca Silk (= 2 strands yarn group A = 1 strand yarn group C). Please read more here how to calculate new amount of yarn. Happy knitting!

The pattern shows that you knit a yarnover at the beginning of one row and at the end of the next. By doing this all my yarnovers are on only one side of the shawl. what am I doing wrong?

DROPS Design 12.03.2015 kl. 09:15:

Dear Mrs MacMahon, you inc with 1 yo inside 1 st at the beg of each row (in the diagram 1 square = 1 st x 1 row, read more about diagrams here), working that way you will increase both side of the shawl, at the beg of each row. Happy knitting!

Varför är det 7 maskor på ena sidan och 6 på andra. Kan man inte loka gärna ha samma antal på båda sidor?

DROPS Design 26.05.2015 kl. 10:39:

Hej Sigrid, jo men det får du när du ökar i den andra sidan på nästa varv. Lycka till!

Kan ik dit patroon ook met 2 pennen breien?

DROPS Design 02.12.2014 kl. 16:27:

Hoi Joke. Ja, dat is mogelijk als je alle st kwijt kan op de nld.
