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.
MEASURING TIP:
Always measure from the first ch worked and down along the tip of shawl.

CROCHET INFO:
Replace first dc at beg of every dc row with 3 ch.
Replace first tr at beg of every tr row with 4 ch.
At beg of every row with dtr replace first dtr with 5 ch + 1 ch (to avoid a tight edge) = 6 ch.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1-A.5.

INC dc-GROUP:
Work 2 dc in first dc, 1 ch (= tip), skip ch 1, 2 dc in next dc = 2 dc inc in tip. NOTE: On 3rd row in A.2, inc with double dc instead of dc!

INCREASE TIP:
On every row with dc (and A.2) inc with 2 dc in first and last st on every row and work a inc dc-group in the tip of shawl (= 4 dc inc on row). NOTE: On 3rd row in A.2, inc with double dc instead of dc!
----------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
Worked back and forth.

ROW 1 (= from WS): Work according to diagram A.1 as follows: Work 7 ch (= 1 dtr + 1 ch) - READ CROCHET INFO with BabyAlpaca Silk on hook size 3.5 mm/E/4. Work ch 1, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in first ch on row, work ch 2, insert a marker (= tip of shawl) - move it upwards until finished measurements, ch 2, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in first ch on row, ch 1, 1 dtr in first ch.
ROW 2: Work 8 ch, 7 tr around next ch-space, ch 2, 1 tr around next ch-space (= tip), ch 2, 7 tr around ch-space, ch 2, 1 dtr in 6th ch on previous row.
ROW 3: Work 8 ch, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in last ch from previous row, ch 2, 1 tr in each of the middle 3 tr, ch 2, skip next ch-space, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in the middle tr from previous row, 4 ch (= tip), (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in same tr, ch 2, 1 tr in each of the middle 3 tr, ch 2, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in 6th ch from previous row, ch 2, 1 dtr in 6th ch on previous row.
ROW 4: Work A.Z like this: 8 ch, skip 1 ch-space, 7 tr around next ch-space, 2 ch. Work A.1a as follows: 1 tr in the middle of the 3 tr, ch 2, skip 1 ch-space, 7 tr around next ch-space, 2 ch. Work 1 tr around next ch-space (= tip). Therafter work A.1b as follows: ch 2, 7 tr around next ch-space, ch 2, 1 tr in the middle of the next 3 tr. Work A:X as follows: ch 2, skip 1 ch-space, 7 tr around next ch-space, ch 2, 1 dtr in 6th ch on previous row. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROW 5: Work A.X as follows: 8 ch, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in last ch from previous row, ch 2, 1 tr in each of the middle 3 tr, 2 ch. Work A.1b as follows: Skip 1 ch-space, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in next tr, ch 2, 1 tr in each of the middle 3 tr, 2 ch. Skip 1 ch-space (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in the middle tr on shawl, 4 ch (= tip). Work A.1a as follows: (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in same tr, skip 1 ch-space, ch 2, 1 tr in each of the middle 3 tr, ch 2, skip 1 ch-space, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in next tr, skip 1 ch-space. Work A.Z as follows: ch 2, 1 tr in each of the middle 3 tr, ch 2, skip 1 ch-space, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in 6th ch on previous row, ch 2, 1 dtr in 6th ch.
ROWS 6-11: Continue with pattern as explained on 4th and 5th row, AT THE SAME TIME work A.1a and A.1b over the new inc sts in A.x and A.Z. There are now 5 tr groups vertically along tip of shawl and piece measures approx. 24 cm / 9½'' - READ MEASURING TIP.

Now work A.2 as follows: Work 3 ch (= 1 dc), work 1 dc more in last tr from previous row (= 1 dc inc), continue with 1 dc in every tr and 1 dc around every ch until the middle ch-space (= tip), then work 1 dc around ch-space, 2 dc in the first of the two middle ch (= 1 dc inc), ch 1, 2 dc in next ch (= 1 dc inc), 1 dc around same ch-space. Continue with 1 dc in every tr and 1 dc around every ch and work 2 dc in 6th ch at beg of previous row (= 1 dc inc) = 4 dc inc in total and 156 dc on row (= 78 dc on each side of tip).
Then continue from 2nd row in A.2, AT THE SAME TIME continue the same inc - READ INCREASE TIP and work an INC dc-GROUP - see explanation above, beg in dc before ch in the tip of shawl. NOTE: On 3rd work 1 ch before inc dc-group and before the last inc on row so that the pattern is symmetrical. (I.e. 2 extra dc are inc on next row when 1 dc is worked around these 2 extra ch).
When entire A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 174 dc on row. Then work 5 rows of A.2 1 more time vertically the same way (= 22 dc inc) = 198 dc.

Now continue inc as at beg of shawl as follows - see diagram A.3-A.5:
ROW 1: Work 8 ch, * (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in next dc, ch 2, skip 2 dc, 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, ch 2, skip 2 dc *, repeat from *-* 11 more times, skip 1 dc, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in next dc (= first dc of the 2 middle dc), 4 ch (= tip), (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in next dc (= second dc of the middle 2 dc), ** ch 2, skip 2 dc, 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, ch 2, skip 2 dc, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in next dc **, repeat from **-** 11 more times, ch 2, 1 dtr in last dc on row.
ROW 2: Work 8 ch, skip 1 ch-space, * 7 tr around next ch-space, ch 2, 1 tr in the middle of the 3 dc, ch 2, skip 1 ch-space *, repeat from *-* 11 more times, 7 tr around next ch-space, ch 2, 1 tr around next ch-space (= tip), ch 2, 7 tr around next ch-space, ** ch 2, 1 tr in the middle of the next 3 dc, ch 2, skip 1 ch-space, 7 tr around next ch-space **, repeat from **-** 11 more times, ch 2, 1 dtr in 6th ch on previous row.
ROW 3: Work 8 ch, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in last ch from previous row, * ch 2, 1 tr in each of the middle 3 tr, ch 2, skip 1 ch-space, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in next tr, skip 1 ch-space *, repeat from *-* 11 more times, ch 2, 1 tr in each of the middle 3 tr, ch 2, skip 1 ch-space, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in next tr, 4 ch (= tip), (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in same tr, ch 2, 1 tr in each of the middle 3 tr, ch 2, ** skip 1 ch-space, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in next tr, skip 1 ch-space, ch 2, 1 tr in each of the middle 3 tr, 2 ch **, repeat from **-** 11 more times, skip 1 ch-space, (1 tr, ch 4, 1 tr) in 6th ch on previous row, ch 2, 1 dtr in same ch.

Now work A.2 as follows: Work 3 ch (= 1 dc), work 1 dc more in last tr on previous row (= 1 dc inc), continue with 1 dc in every tr and 1 dc around every ch until the middle ch-space on shawl (= tip), then work 1 dc around ch-space, 2 dc in the first of the two middle ch (= 1 dc inc), ch 1, 2 dc in next ch (= 1 dc inc), 1 dc around same ch-space. Continue with 1 dc in every tr and 1 dc around every ch and work 2 dc in 6th ch at beg of previous row (= 1 dc inc) 364 dc on row (= 182 dc on each side of tip).
Then continue from 2nd row in A.2, AT THE SAME TIME continue the same inc and work an INC DC-GROUP - see explanation above, beg in dc before ch in the tip of shawl. NOTE: On 3rd row work 1 ch before inc dc-group and before the last inc on row to make it symmetrical. I.e. inc 2 dc on next row when working 1 dc around these ch 2, AT THE SAME TIME on last row inc 8 dc evenly (i.e. 4 dc on each side of tip) = 390 dc on row.

Now continue from arrow in diagram A.3, A.4 and A.5 the same way as before but now work A.3 24 times in total before A.4 (= inc in tip), and A.5 24 times in width after A.4. When A.3-A.5 has been worked vertically, continue pattern and inc as shown on 2nd-5th row in diagram until piece measures 75 cm / 29½'' in total along tip - adjust to finish on a row which is like 4th row in diagram. Fasten off.

This pattern has been corrected. .

Por favor podrían indicar en que dirección se empieza a tejer, si es de arriba hacia abajo, o de abajo hacia arriba, eso facilitaría mucho, gracias.

Paula 20.04.2018 - 17:51:

I am self taught and by far not an expert but do well. I am just learning to read diagrams and am doing fairly well. I am at the point where the pattern says to work A2 vertically. There is where I become confused and my dc stitch count is way off. So if you could just explain how to read A2 vertically. Up until there my shawl does look gorgeous I must say. So I would really like to finish. PLEASE HELP!!

DROPS Design 23.04.2018 kl. 08:16:

Dear Paula, work row 1 in A.2 as shown in diagram and explained in the written pattern, then continue A.2 as shown in diagram increasing at the same time 1 dc as under INCREASE TIP: with 2 dc in the first and in the last st on row and inc in the middle of shawl as explained under INC dc-GROUP. Happy crocheting!

Åsa 22.06.2017 - 20:56:

Hej jag är på A2 andra gången där många verkar få problem Det står i mösnstret att man ska ha 174 stolpar virka 5 varv öka 22 och få 198 stolpar men 174 + 22 =196. så nu undrar jag ska jag ha 196 eller 198 stolpar för att fortsätta?? Tacksam för hjälp

DROPS Design 22.09.2017 kl. 10:56:

Hej Åsa, tänker du även på de 2 ökningar som förklaras överst i mönstret?

Carolyn 27.01.2017 - 16:20:

Thank you for writing back. I'm asking about the second time through A.2. I did not have to add extra chains, and I am missing the same amount if increases. Don't know what I'm missing. Only allowed so many words, so hard to tell you what I mean. Sorry. No idea how you get 198. I'm low.

DROPS Design 30.01.2017 kl. 10:19:

Dear Carolyn, you are increasing 4 sts on each of the 5 rows in A.2 + work 2 more chains on row 3, ie inc 2 more sts on row 4, so that you will have 4 times x 4 sts inc (= row 1, 2, 3, 5) + 1 time x 6 sts inc (= row 4) = 4x4 + 6 = 22 sts inc in A.2. Happy crocheting!

Carolyn 26.01.2017 - 17:34:

Really confused now! Finished second time thru 3rd row (A.2). Did not even have extra chain to put in, so now going to be even more stitches lower than supposed to be. Where do you get 22 increases the second time through? They aren't there. Thanks.

DROPS Design 27.01.2017 kl. 09:28:

Dear Carolyn, you are working the first 4 inc in A.2 to get the 156 sts, then work A.2 from row 2. On 3rd row work 1 ch before inc tr-group and before the last inc on row so that the pattern is symmetrical. (I.e. 2 extra tr are inc on next row when 1 tr is worked around these 2 extra ch). So that you will have 4 sts inc in row 1, 4 sts inc in row 2, 4 sts inc in row 3 (+ 2 more chains), 6 sts inc in row 4 and 4 sts inc in row 5. Happy crocheting!

Carolyn 26.01.2017 - 16:59:

Thank you for your previous help. So why are there 18 increases the first time, and 22 increases the second time through A.2? Unless there is supposed to be a chain between the first and last two triple in the third row (increase)? If it's the exact same, where are the extra increases? Thanks!

DROPS Design 27.01.2017 kl. 08:58:

Dear Carolyn, you also increased 22 sts the first time, the 156 sts are counted after you have worked row 1 in A2. Happy crocheting!

Carolyn Sullivan 25.01.2017 - 22:47:

I don't understand the third row in A2. We are supposed to put two triple crochets to increase at the beginning, then an extra chain right before the two triple crochets at the tip, and then another extra chain at the end before ending with two triple crochets (another increase). If I do this correctly, and count the chains, that gives me 166 stitches. But then, if I follow the pattern, which is four increases in the next two rows, that gives me a final count of 176 stitches, not 174.

DROPS Design 26.01.2017 kl. 09:39:

Dear Mrs Sullivan, on row 2 in A2 inc 4 sts, on row 3 in A2 inc 4 sts (+ crochet 1 more ch on 2 places), on row 4 in A2 inc 4 sts + 2 sts (over ch) = 6 sts inc, on row 5 in A2 inc 4 sts = you have inc a total of 18 sts, there were 156 sts + 18 = 174 sts. Happy crocheting!

Faye 23.01.2017 - 16:26:

I see. If the last row needs to inc 6 on each side, I think you need to update the pattern, because it says "AT THE SAME TIME on last row inc 8 tr evenly (i.e. 4 tr on each side of tip) = 390 tr on row." so it seems to me that the numbers don't match up. But if the inc is 4, 4, 4, 6, 12 I'll go with that.

Faye 22.01.2017 - 13:01:

Hey, I'm wondering about the last time we crochet A.2. I can't make out how it can go from 364 dc on row 1 to 390 on row 5. Could you tell me how many dc are increased on each of the 5 rows, please? I have counted and calculated myself, but I can't make any sense of it. Thanks in advance for your reply. PS: I really love this design! Can't wait to finish it.

DROPS Design 23.01.2017 kl. 10:53:

Dear Faye, you will inc on each side in A.2 as before, ie on row 2: + 2 sts on each side of middle st (4 sts inc in row), on row3: 2 sts (= 4 sts inc on row), on row 4: 3 sts (= 6 sts inc on row), on row 5: 6 sts (= 12 sts inc on row): 13 sts inc on each side of tip = 26 sts inc in total: 364+26=390 sts. Happy crocheting!

Maja 19.01.2017 - 13:57:

Hei, jeg har et problem med A.2 den siste gangen denne skal hekles. Jeg hadde ingen problemer de forrige gangene, men nå ser ikke maskeantallet ut til å gå opp. 1. rad skal ende med 364 m, 2. rad skal ende med 368 m og jeg antar at 3. rad skal ende med 374 m? Men så skjønner jeg ikke hvordan 5. rad skal ende med 388 m, for vil ikke 4. rad ha 378 eller 380 m? Da er det fortsatt masker til overs for å få 388. Hvordan skal jeg få dette til? Håper på svar.

DROPS Design 05.04.2017 kl. 12:16:

Hei Maja, Beklager sent svar men jeg har nettopp begynt å svare på spørsmål. Hvis du fremdeles trenger hjelp, så går maskeantallet opp hvis du inkluderer ØKESTGRUPPE som er forklart på toppen av oppskriften. Denne gruppa gir deg 2 ekstra staver. Håper dette er behjelpelig. Mvh Deirdre
