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.
GARTER ST (back and forth):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3 (= blanket) and diagrams A.4 to A.6 (= pillow). The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

TIP FOR CHANGING YARN:
When switching ball with Polaris, split the old strand in two on the last 15 cm / 6'' – cut off one part, do the same on the new strand. Place the first and last 15 cm / 6'' on top of each other so that the yarn is the normal thickness and continue to work – this is done to make the strand switch invisible in the yarn.
----------------------------------------------------------

BLANKET:

FRINGES:
Fasten fringes in every other st along cast-on and bind-off edge on blanket as follows: Cut 2 strands Polaris of 40 cm / 15 3/4'', fold them double and pull the loop through a st and then pull yarn ends through the loop.
----------------------------------------------------------

REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When pillow measures approx. 36 cm / 14 1/4'' – adjust so that 3 or 5 rows have been worked after a cable row, work pattern according to diagram A.6 = 29 sts on needle *.

Hei, jeg skulle gjerne hatt tips på hvordan jeg kan gjøre det for å lage dette større, ca 120x180?

DROPS Design 29.04.2019 kl. 13:48:

Hei Bente. Du kan feks gjenta deler av diagrammene i bredden. Hele diagram A.2 måler 80 cm i bredden, og du må legge til 40 cm, for å få 120 cm. Dvs du kan legge til tilsvarende en halv rapport til av A.2. Det blir opp til deg hvilke flettekombinasjoner du vil legge til, men feks kan du strikke dobbelt så mange av de små flettene på midten. Når det gjelder lengden er det bare å fortsette flettemønsteret til ferdige mål. Garnforbuket kan du regne ut ved å finne ut hvor mange gram som går med til hver kvadratcm, og gange opp med det nye arealet. God fornøyelse

If I use my 15mm needles would it present any problems that I cant Foresee? I dont want my stitches any looser than they look on my 15mm needle test. I have 30 balls, so Its fine if it uses more yarn and Ill need to add more stitches to make it the same size. Thanks in advance for your advice.

DROPS Design 15.04.2019 kl. 21:33:

Dear Sharon, with needes that are smaler than the suggested, your fabric will be denser, less fleaxible, it will have less drape. The piece will need more yarn, and more stitches as well. However it probably will hold up to time somewhat better. Please do a swatch and determine the necessary changes in the stitch count. Happy Knitting!

Bonjour, j'ai une question concernant la quantité de laine à prévoir pour le coussin. Je pense que la quantité prévue de 600 g est une erreur ? Merci pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 07:30:

Bonjour Corinne! C'est correct. Ce fil appartient au group de fils F, il est donc tres epais. Bon tricot!

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 12:21:

Bonjour Corine, il faut bien 600 g DROPS Polaris, soit 6 pelotes de 100 g sur la base de l'échantillon pour réaliser le coussin. Bon tricot!

Karolina 05.02.2018 - 12:51:

Hi :) I just want to make sure, needles nr 20 means needles size 20mm?

DROPS Design 05.02.2018 kl. 13:21:

Dear Karolina, that's correct, you need here needle size 20 mm. Happy knitting!

Melinda Fülöp 01.08.2017 - 16:02:

Hej Nu har jag stickat de 12 första varven. Men hur fortsätter jag sen?? Jag förstår att jag ska börja om igen, men varven till flätmönstret stämmer inte. Det är 3 varv till man ska göra flätan medan det i början av mönstret är 5 varv till flätan

DROPS Design 02.08.2017 kl. 13:38:

Hej! Du ska upprepa de 12 varven i diagrammet, det blir då alltid 5 varv mellan flätvridningarna.

Melinda Fülöp 12.07.2017 - 19:20:

Förlåt mig men verkar trög. Börjar man varv två från början eller 6 maskor in?

DROPS Design 13.07.2017 kl. 08:23:

Hei Melinda. Du begynner fra begynnelsen av diagrammet. De 6 maskene i hver sidene av diagrammet er de maskene du økte på 1.pinne (kastene). På 1.rad av A.1 har du økt med 12 masker (52 + 12), så når du starter på 2.rad har du 64 masker og starter med 5 masker rett fra vrangsiden. God Fornøyelse!

Melinda Fülöp 12.07.2017 - 09:49:

Hej igen. En ny fråga. Hur stickar jag varv 2 på diagram A1?? Visar diagrammet med de ökade maskorna som man gör i första varvet?? Tack på förhand

DROPS Design 12.07.2017 kl. 17:39:

Ja, de ökade maskorna finns med och du stickar räta och aviga maskor precis som diagrammet visar. Kom ihåg att alla varv ses från rätsidan.

Melinda Fülöp 09.07.2017 - 20:49:

Hej Visst är det så att när man har stickat rätsidan att det på avigsidan bara stickas aviga maskor?

DROPS Design 10.07.2017 kl. 17:19:

Diagrammen visar alla varv sett från rätsidan. Dvs. från avigsidan ska du sticka rm över rm och am över am enligt diagrammet.

Eva 21.09.2016 - 00:38:

Ich habe eine Frage zu Diagramm A2: Wenn ich die letzten 8 R des grossen Zopfes stricke, was passiert dann mit den übrigen Maschen des Musters? Werden sie stillgelegt oder glatt re weitergestrickt?

DROPS Design 21.09.2016 kl. 09:26:

Liebe Eva, wenn Sie die 12 ersten Reihen gestrickt haben, stricken Sie dann von 1. Reihe wieder über die ersten + mittleren + letzte Maschen, gleichzeitig stricken Sie die 2 grossen Zöpfe wie im Diagram, dh diese Zöpfe machen Sie jede 10. Reihe aber die kleineren in der Mitte jede 6. Reihe.
