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.
MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid hole in the middle (instead of ch-ring): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the yarn over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull yarn through loop, work 3 ch, then work 11 tr around the loop. Pull the yarn end to tighten loop. Fasten the yarn end on the back side.

CROCHET INFO:
Replace first tr at beg of every tr round with 3 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1.

STRIPES:
Piece is worked in stripes - READ COLOUR CHANGE.
3 ROUNDS medium grey
2 ROUNDS sapphire
2 ROUNDS off white
2 ROUNDS light grey
2 ROUNDS turquoise
2 ROUNDS sapphire
2 ROUNDS off white
2 ROUNDS light grey
2 ROUNDS medium grey

COLOUR CHANGE:
To get a nice colour change when working, work last tr on round as follows: Make a YO, insert hook in last st, get the yarn and pull it through st, make a YO and pull it through the first 2 sts on hook, then make a YO with the new colour and pull it through the 2 sts on hook.
----------------------------------------------------------

CARPET:
Worked in the round in turquoise before working stripes and zig-zag.

CIRCLE:
Work a MAGIC CIRCLE - see explanation above, with 12 tr - READ CROCHET INFO, on hook size 7 mm with turquoise. Continue to work as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 2 tr in every tr = 24 tr.
ROUND 2: Work * 2 tr in first tr, 1 tr in next tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 tr. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 3: Work * 2 tr in first tr, 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 48 tr.
ROUND 4: Work * 2 tr in first tr, 1 tr in each of the next 3 tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 60 tr.
ROUND 5: Work * 2 tr in first tr, 1 tr in each of the next 4 tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 72 tr.
ROUND 6: Work * 2 tr in first tr, 1 tr in each of the next 3 tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 90 tr. Switch to medium grey - READ COLOUR CHANGE!

ZIG-ZAG:
Then work STRIPES - see explanation above - while AT THE SAME TIME working zig-zag as follows: Work A.1 5 times in total on round (= 10 tips). When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat 3rd round in A.1. Continue until stripes are done. Piece measures approx. 112 cm in diameter (from edge of tips). Fasten off.

Det tok litt tid men jeg skjønte det til slutt. Den første raden i diagrammet er egentlig det som hekles først, staver i ring. Så vi begynner med andre raden i diagrammet og sikk sakk mønster. Håper det hjelper andre til å forstå oppskrifta. Hilsen

Elisa 30.08.2018 - 21:21:

Buonasera, vorrei sapere se è possibile usare questo modello per realizzare una copertina da neonato (filato tipo B). In caso affermativo, cosa consigliate? Grazie mille

DROPS Design 31.08.2018 kl. 07:59:

Buongiorno Elisa, questo tappeto è lavorato con il filato Eskimo che appartiene al gruppo filati E. Una coperta con queste caratteristiche non è adatta a un neonato perchè risulterebbe troppo pesante. In ogni caso provi il nostro convertitore di filati per vedere quale filato potrebbe usare. In alternativa a questo link può trovare moltissimi modelli di coperte per neonati. Buon lavoro!

In navolging op de opmerking van Kim loop ik ook vast bij het begin van de zigzag. Als ik kijk bij het instructie filmpje zie ik een heel ander telpatroon eronder leggen die wel klopt. Ik denk dat jullie eens goed moeten kijken naar jullie telpatroon wat hierbij staat want die klopt niet.

Kim 07.06.2018 - 06:56:

Hallo, Wat een leuk kleed! Ik loop helaas vast bij het begin van de zigzag; de laatste rij in de geschreven uitleg geeft aan *2 stk in eerste stk, 1 stk in elk van de volgende 3 stk*. In het diagram zie ik echter *2 stk in eerste stk, 1 stk in elk van de volgende 7 stk* (elke tweede dubbele stk lijkt er maar 1 te zijn in het diagram; de dieper getekende stk). Kunt u mij uitleggen wat ik verkeerd doe? Met vriendelijke groet, Kim

Dag Kim, In het telpatroon staat bij de eerste toer van stokjes een pijl. Dit is toer 6 van het geschreven patroon. Deze is er in getekent zodat je kunt zien hoe je start met het telpatroon, Je begint gewoon bij toer 1 van het telpatroon.

Trude Grimstad 06.04.2017 - 08:29:

Leser oppskrift og ser både diagram og ser video. Det virker som om hun hekler 2 staver i 1 i stjernemønstret, men det kommer ikke frem i diagram. Og oppskrifta "stopper liksom" etter 6 rad. Dette er forvirrende. Tar jeg feil?

DROPS Design 07.04.2017 kl. 08:59:

Hei Trude. Du tar ikke feil. Denne video skal ikke ligge under denne oppskriften. Videoen er laget til et veldig likt teppe, - DROPS Extra 0-1050, og der skal man hekle 2 staver i 1 stjernemønster. Men om du følger oppskriften og diagrammet til 163-12 skal det være riktig, så skal vi få laget en ny video til dette teppet. I den aktuelle videoen viser vi bare begynnelsen, man må også lese oppskriften. Etter 6. omgang skal det hekles striper (les forklaringen i oppskriften) og 3. omgang i A.1 til teppet er ferdig. God fornøyelse.

Er det mulig å få diagrammet oversatt til tekst istedet?

Hej Hanne, Har du set videoen nederst i opskriften

Antonella 18.11.2015 - 12:20:

E' possibile utilizzare il filato loveyou5 in alternativa? dovrebbe essere più resistente rispetto alla lana, o no?

DROPS Design 18.11.2015 kl. 13:45:

Buongiorno Antonella. Può sostituire il filato Eskimo con il filato loveyou5, usandolo doppio. Otterrà ugualmente un buon risultato, resistente. Buon lavoro!

Anne 18.10.2015 - 12:03:

Hallo. Hoe block je dit kleed. Het is van wol. Kan ik het nat maken en spannen? Bedankt.

DROPS Design 19.10.2015 kl. 16:03:

Hoi Anne. Je kan het ook vochtig maken (sprayen met water) en dan opspannen, dan hoef je niet de kleed helemaal nat te maken.

Gena 14.09.2015 - 22:27:

I need help with this pattern. Cannot find the related videos mentioned. Is there a complete written version? Finding it hard to follow the diagram.

Sandy 07.09.2015 - 22:29:

Ich find eure Anleitungen super,aber mit dieser hier hab ich leichte Schwierigkeiten.Wenn ich dann die 3.Reihe vom Zickzackmuster immer wieder wiederhole,wie verhindere ich,dass sich der Teppich zu kräuseln anfängt?

DROPS Design 08.09.2015 kl. 10:25:

An sich sollte sich da nichts kräuseln, die Abnahmen in den Zacken"tälern" (d.h. das Überspringen von 2 Stb) sollten sich mit den Zunahmen an den Zackenspitzen so ausgleichen, dass sich nichts stärker wellt. Haben Sie die Maschenprobe eingehalten?
