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

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

KNITTING TIP:
Every time piece is turned in the middle of piece, slip first st as if to K, tighten yarn and return, this is done to avoid holes in the transitions.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by making a YO. On next row K YO twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes.
-------------------------------------------------------

NECK WARMER:
Work the piece sideways. Cast on 64-72-80 sts on needle size 3.5 mm with 1 strand medium grey + 1 strand light grey = 2 strands. Work in GARTER ST - see explanation above - for 4 cm (= band).

REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When piece measures approx. 43-45-47 cm at the top in the neck (i.e. the shorter side of piece) – finish after 1 whole repetition with short rows – work in garter st over all sts for 4 cm (= band). When piece measures approx. 47-49-51 cm at the top and approx. 125-131-137 cm measured along the edge at the bottom inside 4 cm (= wave edge).

Work 63-64-67 sts, cut the yarn and turn piece. This is now beg of row (= mid back). Then work in garter st back and forth over all sts from here, i.e. work over previous beg of row = 94-96-100 sts. When piece measures 12 cm, dec 8 sts evenly = 86-88-92 sts. Repeat dec when piece measures 16 cm = 78-80-84 sts. When piece measures 18 cm, dec 10 sts evenly every 2 cm 4 times in total = 38-40-44 sts. When piece measures 25 cm, work all sts tog 2 by 2 = 19-20-22 sts.

Now inc for thumb gusset as follows: Inc 1 st in each side of st with marker - READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc outside the inc sts every 4th row 5-6-7 times in total = 45-49-53 sts. When piece measures 15½-16½-18 cm, slip the 11-13-15 thumb sts on 1 stitch holder. On next row, cast on 1 new st behind thumb sts = 35-37-39 sts remain on needle. Work until piece measures 23-24-26 cm. On next row from RS dec as follows: Dec 3 sts evenly = 32-34-36 sts. K 3 rows. On next row, dec 4 sts evenly = 28-30-32 sts. Repeat dec with 4 sts every other row 4 more times = 12-14-16 sts. K 1 row. On next row, K all sts tog 2 by 2 = 6-7-8 sts. Cut the yarn. Pull yarn through the remaining sts and fasten.

Wieviel Wolle benötige ich für den Kragenschal in Größe L/XL?

DROPS Design 23.01.2019 kl. 08:53:

Liebe Frau Mädler, die Garnangaben finden Sie unter dem Kopfsprung, dh 200 g DROPS Alpaca /50 g das Knaüel Alpaca = 4 Knäuel in jede Farbe (= 8 Knäuel insgesamt). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Petra 03.01.2019 - 09:10:

Liebes Dropsteam, natürlich, das verstehe ich und habe auch für die Mütze noch vorhandenes Garn von Ihnen genutzt:-) Ich werde Ihnen weiterhin treu bleiben! Viele Grüße ins Neue Jahr!

Petra 01.01.2019 - 19:59:

Hallo, kann man die Mütze auch in glatt rechts stricken wie bei einer Beanie? Mit Baby Alpaca 100%? Danke im Voraus!

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 11:44:

Liebe Petra, nach dem Rand mit Krausrippe können Sie glatt rechts stricken, die Abnahmen entstehen in cm von der gesamte Höhe und werden so einfach zu folgen. Wir bitten um Verständnis, dass wir nicht Produkte unserer Konkurrenz empfehlen können und dass der Kauf des Materials uns hilft, weiterhin kostenlose Anleitungen zur Verfügung stellen zu können. Wir können Ihnen dann nur empfehlen, DROPS Alpaca oder eine Alternative (siehe unser Garnumrechner) zu benutzen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas les explications pour la fin du tricot du tour du coup: "A environ 47 cm de hauteur total en haut et environ 125 cm le long du bas du bord ... ?"les explications s'arrêtent là, je ne sais pas quoi faire à partir de la, le tricot est petit pour ressembler à la photo et au dessin patron. Merci de m'apporter votre aide :))) Belle journée. Cécile Rose

DROPS Design 27.11.2017 kl. 10:40:

Bonjour Mme Hubert, cette phrase a été réécrite, il fallait lire: "L'ouvrage mesure environ 47-49-51 cm de hauteur totale en haut (petit côté) et environ 125-131-137 cm le long du bas (long côté), en mesurant à 4 cm du bord (bord ondulé)." Correction faite, merci. Bon tricot!

När jag vänder efter 64 m mitt bak, så är ju halva mössan rätstickad och halva avigstickad.

DROPS Design 05.09.2016 kl. 12:36:

Hej Monika. Nej, du strikker jo riller ikke glat

Aga 04.12.2014 - 10:40:

Beautiful pattern but I do not understand cap .. :( Exactly this passage: Work 63-64-67 sts, cut the yarn and turn piece. This is now beg of row (= mid back). Then work in garter st back and forth over all sts from here, ie work over previous beg of row = 94-96-100 sts. How do I do this? I cut the thread and turn cap but then I got a hole in the middle! Can I after closing those 10 stitches make cap in the round on circular needle? As it is in the pattern 'Bliss'

Dea 09.07.2014 - 16:35:

BEllo!

Natiel 07.07.2014 - 12:59:

C'est vraiment très féminin.j'attends avec impatience les explications.

Pascale 26.06.2014 - 13:30:
