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.
When changing ball, divide the old strand in two the last 15 cm / 6'' – cut one part off, do the same on the new thread. Place the first and last 15 cm / 6'' over each other to get normal thickness of yarn and continue working - do this to avoid visible yarn change.

GARTER ST (in the round on circular needle):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

Inc 1 st by working 2 sts in 1 st. I.e. work in back and front loop of st.

Dec 1 st before marker as follows: Work until 2 sts remain before marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
Dec 1 st after marker as follows: K 2 tog.

Worked in the round on circular needle and double pointed needles.

When piece measures 16 cm / 6 1/4'', insert 5 markers in the piece as follows: Insert 1st marker at the beg of the round. Then insert 1 marker for every 18 sts = 5 markers. Then continue in stockinette st while AT THE SAME TIME dec every other round as follows: Dec 1 st on each side of every marker 8 times in total - see DECREASE TIP = 10 sts remain. Pull yarn through the remaining 10 sts, tighten tog and fasten.

I have come into a problem with the beret pattern. It says to add 5 stitch markers and decrease a stitch before and after each marker resulting in 8 sts decreased. If you are including the bor marker in the decreases it would be 10 sts decreased. So I have skipped the bor stitch decreases but now it has one side of the beret all flat with no decrease...help!!!!

DROPS Design 12.03.2019 kl. 10:10:

Dear Katt, you decrease a total of 10 sts on every decrease round (2 sts at each of the 5 markers), and repeat these decreases on every other round a total of 8 times (= a total of 8 rounds with decreases). Happy knitting!

Katt 11.03.2019 - 16:40:

Thank you so much for your fast reply! I am enjoying this set greatly. I have one more question. When knitting the beret...does the 6 1/4 inches before decreases mean from the cast on edge or the stockinette stitches? Thank you again in advance!

DROPS Design 12.03.2019 kl. 09:28:

Dear Katt, the 6 1/4 inches have to be measured from cast on edge. Happy knitting!

Katt 11.03.2019 - 01:57:

While attempting the shawl I have noticed on the starting row( up by the neck) my stitches are very loose and the edge is very unappealing.I'm thinking it's because of the yo s. Is there a way as I add new stitches by yo to make this edge tighter and neater? I've been pulling the first and last stitch tight but to no avail.

DROPS Design 11.03.2019 kl. 07:45:

Dear Katt, he yarnover increases added to the edges so you will be able to block the shawl neatly and the edge will not pull in. It will be neater once you block the shawl (soak and dry pinned into shape). However, if it still bothers you, you can try doing the increases by picking up the yarn betweentwo stitches and knitteng them twisted. Happy Knitting!

Katt 26.02.2019 - 17:18:

In the shawl pattern...what does the (=mid st) mean? I'm confused...does this mean middle stitch? Please help!

DROPS Design 27.02.2019 kl. 06:45:

Hi Katt, Yes mid-st is the middle stitch. Happy knitting!

Theroux 03.01.2019 - 22:33:

Je n'arrive pas a avoir la meme taille que vous, car pour 10 cm = 13 mailles donc pour 54 cm ce doit faire 70 mailles, vous avez du vous tromper ? j'ai du le refaire car 45 mailles cela me fait 35cm , merci de me dire si vous vous etes trompés?

DROPS Design 04.01.2019 kl. 12:26:

Bonjour Mme Theroux, les explications de ce modèle sont justes, on monte moins de mailles que le tour de tête pour que le béret tienne bien en place. Toutefois, vous pouvez tout à fait ajuster à votre taille/à votre goût si vous le souhaitez. Bon tricot!

Anja 15.12.2018 - 23:19:

In der Anleitung für das Tuch steht, zum Schluss soll man nochmal 2 Reihen rechts stricken, sodass eine Krausrippe entsteht. Oben steht ein Krausrippe würde aus 1 Reihe rechts dann eine links gestrickte bestehen. Wie ist das jetzt bei dem Tuch, wie viele Reihen muss ich wie stricken? Danke und Liebe Grüße

DROPS Design 17.12.2018 kl. 10:01:

Liebe Anja, wenn man Krausrechts in Reihen strickt, strickt man 2 Reihen rechts für 1 Krausrippe. Am Ende vom Tuch enden Sie dann mit 1 Hinreihe rechts, dann 1 Rückreihe rechts und Maschen abketten. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Theresa 06.04.2018 - 11:46:

Hallo, wenn ich weniger cm in die Höhe stricke, ist er dann automatisch kleiner? Also ich möchte den für mein Kind stricken. Und ich kann mir im Moment das Verhältnis vorstellen. Liebe Grüße

DROPS Design 06.04.2018 kl. 13:02:

Liebe Theresa, wenn Sie den Tuch weniger cm in der Höhe stricken, wird er kleiner in cm, beachten Sie nur, daß er in der Breite auch passt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Annelene Andersen 27.01.2018 - 22:59:

Jeg er rasende, sidder her med 20 cm garn tilbage, og der mangler at blive strikket 3 cm. Det er altså ikke iorden.

Ile 21.11.2017 - 12:32:

Buongiorno, è possibile lavorare la parte centrale dello scialle senza i "buchi" del gettato? Grazie

DROPS Design 22.11.2017 kl. 10:25:

Buongiorno Ile. Gli aumenti sono necessari per la struttura stessa dello scialle. Per evitare il buco, può lavorare il gettato ritorto, oppure può cambiare tipo di aumento, p.es lavorando la maglia sia nel filo davanti che in quello dietro, oppure sollevando il filo della riga precedente. Le consigliamo di fare un piccolo campione di prova per verificare se il risultato la soddisfa. Buon lavoro!

Dobrý den, pleti baretu​ a není možné jasné jestli se myslí ve výši 16 cm od začátku baretu, včetně těch 6 cm nebo je to myšleno 16 cm od začátku licoveho zerzeje. Děkuji

DROPS Design 23.09.2017 kl. 14:15:

Dobrý den, Magdo, myšlena je celková výše pleteniny, od počáteční, nahozené řady.
