Beg every sc row with 1 ch (replaces first sc).
Beg every dc row with 3 ch (replaces first dc).
Beg every tr row with 4 ch (replaces first tr).

Worked from the middle and outwards.
Work 181-205 ch on hook size 5 mm / H/8 with Nepal. Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (= 2 dc), 1 dc in next ch, * skip ch 1, 1 dc in each of the next 3 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 135-153 dc. Work 1 sc in every dc (= WS) – read CROCHET INFO = 135-153 sc. * Then work as follows: A.4 over the first 4 sc, A.1 over the next 4 sc, A.2 over the next 114-132 sc (= 19-22 times in width), A.3 over the next 9 sc, finish with A.5 over the last 4 sc. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When A.z has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.y over A.z 1-2 times in total. Then work A.x over A.y. When A.x has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.w over A.x 1-2 times in total *, repeat from *-* 1 more time vertically AT THE SAME TIME on last row in A.w inc 2-0 dc evenly (NOTE do not inc over A.4-A.5) = 137-153 dc. Then work as follows: A.6 over A.4, A.7 over the next 128-144 dc (= 8-9 times in width), A.8 over the next dc, finish with A.9 over A.5. Work A.6-A.9 1 time vertically. Fasten off. Then work from ch-row at beg of piece again the same way in opposite direction, i.e. work from WS 1 sc in every dc = 135-153 sc. Then work pattern the same way. Fasten off. Piece measures approx. 126-146 cm / 49½"-57½" in total.

Bonjour, je voudrais savoir comment lire le diagramme. Le rang à l'envers se tricote-t-il avec la deuxième ligne du diagramme de gauche à droite ? merci

DROPS Design 11.05.2016 kl. 13:56:

Bonjour Mme Bernardi, tout à fait, commencez en bas à droite du diagramme et lisez de droite à gauche sur l'endroit et de gauche à droite sur l'envers. Bon crochet!

The note says 'This pattern is written in British English.' But you use American abbreviations, do you?

DROPS Design 30.11.2015 kl. 10:37:

Dear Jenny, change language under the picture into "US-English" to get the american crochet terminology or click here for the pattern in US-English. Happy crocheting!

Magnifique ce plaid, et superbe couleur ! Hélas, dans les alternatives, aucun choix de laine jaune avec un pourcentage important de laine qui passe à la machine :-( (Grosse lacune à mon avis concernant la Big Merino : choix de couleurs trop restreint...)

Bonjour Hélène, vous pouvez également utiliser d'autres alternatives (1 fil groupe C = 2 fils Groupe A - Fabel/Baby Merino sont superwash) - cliquez ici pour voir les groupes et là pour en savoir plus sur les alternatives. Bon crochet!

So beautiful, this will be my next crochet project

Ihana aurinkoinen virkattu peitto. Malli sopii hienosti myös niille, jotka eivät pidä palojen virkkaamisesta ja yhdistelemisestä. Mallikertojen vaihtelu tuo kuitenkin mukavaa zäpinää työn edetessä. Ihan kymppi! Aion toteuttaa!

Ich kann es gar nicht erwarten. Diese Decke möchte ich unbedingt häkeln!

C.p. 28.05.2015 - 20:03:

Tolle Häkeldecke für meinen Sessel!!!

Annelies 28.05.2015 - 09:45:

Heel mooi en eens iets anders dan anders.

Cornelia Sutter 27.05.2015 - 20:46:

Wunderschön! Würde ich gerne in weiss häckeln.
