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.
See diagrams A.1 - A.2. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

Work back and forth and sew tog mid back afterwards.
Work 134 ch on hook size 5 mm with 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk.
ROW 1: Turn and work 1 tr in fourth ch from hook (= 2 tr), work 1 tr in each of the next 4 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 5 ch *, repeat from *-* = 111 tr.
ROW 2: Then work according to diagram A.1 as follows: A.1 A, A.1 B 9 times in total, finish with A.1 C. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.2 upwards.
Continue until piece measures approx. 35 cm - adjust after a whole repetition of A.2, cut the yarn. Sew neck warmer tog mid back.

Hi, in the 4th row of A.2 there are 5 picots for 6 chain spaces, is there maybe a mistake in the explanation for the picot? If this actually goes in the dc from previous row then the design is symmetric (one dc skipped at beginning and end of fan). From the diagram it also looks like the picot should go in the stitch and not around the chain. If I crochet the picot around the chain then the fan is not symmetric anymore. Thank you in advance for the clarification.

Forget my previous question, I get it now!

Salve, nel diagramma a.2 nella riga dei pippiolini, i pippiolini sono 5 e gli archi dove farli 6 e' corretto? grazie mille

Buongiorno Cinzia. Sì l'indicazione del grafico è corretta. Buon lavoro!

Is there a written pattern for this instead of the diagram? I am not good with diagrams.. :(

DROPS Design 25.10.2016 kl. 09:17:

Hi, you will find under diagram text all symbols and the st/group of st they represent. Start reading diagram from the bottom on the right side towards the left from RS (row 1 in A.1) and read from the left towards the right from WS (row 2 in A.1). Work A.1 1 time in width (beg of row), repeat A.1B until 2 sts remain and work A.1C (= 2 sts). Happy crocheting!

Hola! estoy encantada con Vuestros Patrones de Drops Design, me encantan y ya me hice varios, con respecto a este patrón en especial, no puedo entenderlo bien. Hay vídeo del 162-16? paso a paso de como ir haciéndolo, desde ya muchas gracias, y felicitaciones. Sigan alimentándonos con tanta belleza. Espero ansiosa vuestra respuesta, un beso a todo el equipo.

Hola Susana, se trata de un patrón de ganchillo. Entiendo que lo que te cuesta es interpretar el diagrama, las abreviaturas. Puedes consultar éstas en el glosario bajo la pestaña Tips y Ayuda de la página inicial. Lamentablemente no hay un video de este patrón en concreto aunque tienes algunos vídeos de técnicas de ganchillo en la pestaña junto a los materiales.

Jeg har heklet denne shortsen i str S og den er veldig stor i str. Bruker normalt str L men denne var mer enn stor nok. Brukte Drops safran og heklenål nr 2,50 og har normal hekle fasthet.

Leuk voor in het voorjaar en in de zomer.
