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

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

Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts. Work from mid back and down in GARTER ST and pattern - see explanation above. Cast on 4 sts on circular needle size 5.5 mm / US 9 with Brushed Alpaca Silk. Work as follows:
Row 1 (= RS): K 2 sts in each st = 8 sts.
Row 2 (= WS): K while AT THE SAME TIME working 2 sts in first and last st = 10 sts.
Row 3: K 1, 1 YO, K 8, 1 YO, K 1 = 12 sts.
Row 4: K all sts.
Row 5: K 1, 1 YO, K 4, 1 YO, K 2 (= middle sts), 1 YO, K 4, 1 YO, K 1 = 16 sts.

Row 7: K 1, 1 YO, work A.1 until 2 mid sts remain, 1 YO, K 2 (= mid sts), 1 YO, work A.2 until 1 st remains, 1 YO and K 1 = 20 sts.
Row 8: K 1, work A.2 until mid sts, K 2 (= mid sts), work A.1 until 1 st remains, K 1. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE
Repeat 7th and 8th row 57 more times (work the inc sts in A.1 and A.2) = 248 sts in total and piece measures approx. 55 cm / 21½'' measured along mid sts.
Work 4 ridges over all sts (continue with 4 inc on every row from RS). Bind off with 2 strands.

Cut 8 lengths Brushed Alpaca Silk of 25 cm / 9 3/4'', place them double. Use a crochet hook and pull the middle of the strands through a st at the bottom of shawl. Pull ends of fringe through and tighten. Fasten fringes along the entire bottom edge of shawl, fasten a fringe in every 3rd st.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Buenas tardes he revisado todas las hileras anteriores a la fila 9 pero me sigue dando el mismo error por favor podría mandarme un vídeo de esa hilera en concreto? Un saludo y muchas gracias

DROPS Design 11.03.2019 kl. 23:28:

Hola Carmen. Fila 9: 1 derecho, 1 hebra, 8 derechos, 1 hebra, 2 derechos, 1 hebra, 8 derechos, 1 hebra, 1 derecho ( = 24 puntos)

Carmen Gómez 09.03.2019 - 11:33:

Buenos días, quisiera saber si en la hilera 9 al final cuando se hace el último punto del A2 es un error porque me falta el último punto del derecho. Un saludo!

DROPS Design 10.03.2019 kl. 20:32:

Hola Carmen. El patrón es correcto. Se repiten las filas 7-8. Comprueba todas las lazadas de las filas anteriores

Siv 07.03.2019 - 20:04:

Hei. Jeg forstår ikke hvorfor hullene skal strikkes ulikt i a1 og a2. Det blir aldri like hull. Kan man ikke like gjerne strikke likt på begge sider av mm?

DROPS Design 08.03.2019 kl. 14:53:

Hei Siv. Det strikkes speilvendt på de 2 siden av midten, altså kast og felling skjer på motsatt side av hverandre på hver sin side av midten. Dette gjøres for at sjalet skal bli mest mulig symmetrisk. God fornøyelse

Nia 17.02.2019 - 15:23:

Er jeres model strikket i 2 tråde? Den ser meget mere tæt og fast ud end den jeg er igang med. Jeg strikker den oven i købet på p 5 og strikkefastheden passer?!

DROPS Design 21.02.2019 kl. 08:35:

Hei Nia. Denne er strikket med kun 1 tråd, hadde det vært strikket med 2 tråder hadde dette vært godt forklart. Strikkefastheten hadde også da blitt en helt annen. Så lenge din strikkefasthet stemmer overens med oppskiften vil sjalet ditt få de riktige målene. Brushed Alpaca Silk er et lett og hårete garn så det vil virke løsere enn garn som ikke er børstet. God fornøyelse

Crocus 10.01.2018 - 18:51:

Bjr si le rg7 correspond au début des diagrammes, il est entièrement à l'endroit et le 8 , à l'envers...si je les répète que devient le motif? je n'y comprends rien du tout !

DROPS Design 11.01.2018 kl. 08:49:

Bonjour Crocus, vous répétez les rangs 7 et 8 tout en suivant les diagrammes, au rang 7 vous tricotez le 1er rang de A.1/A.2 sur l'endroit (= à l'endroit), au rang 8, vous tricotez le 2ème rang de A.1/A.2 sur l'envers, puis en répétant le rang 7 encore une fois, vous tricotez le rang 3 des diagrammes (= point ajouré) et ainsi de suite. Autrement dit, vous augmentez comme au rang 7 tous les rangs sur l'endroit et tous les rangs sur l'envers se tricotent comme le rang 8, en même temps, vous suivez les 2 diagrammes. Bon tricot!

I'm considering using Air yarn in black wanting to take advantage of sale. I love Air over alpaca silk but am having problems ordering yarn on your website. You're out of Air...pardon the pun...how long will it take to reorder? And can I order by phone?? Thanks!

DROPS Design 09.11.2017 kl. 08:57:

Dear Mrs Kern, due to an exceptionnally request, Air is currently out of stock in several DROPS Stores but will be back in stock week 49 - you can find here some DROPS stores shipping to USA that have still some Air in stock. Happy knitting!

Miriam 15.10.2017 - 20:50:

Hola, dónde puedo ver el significado de las abreviaturas del patrón? Gracias

DROPS Design 30.10.2017 kl. 08:36:

Hola Miriam. Dejo el link donde puedes consultar tus dudas: https://www.garnstudio.com/glossary.php?langf=es&langt=en

Haliziaza 05.04.2017 - 20:52:

Hola, En la traducción dice ; 4 surcos ...¿qué quiere decir eso" Aquí no usamos esa expresión , en España... no se a que se refiere. Gracias

DROPS Design 09.04.2017 kl. 19:23:

Hola Haliziaza. 4 surcos = 4 pliegues (1 pliegue = ida y vuelta trabajando de derecho).

Lola Gouffé 28.02.2017 - 23:34:

Bonjour, Je tente de suivre votre patron mais je bloque au rang 9. J'ai 20 mailles (car à la fin du rang 7 j'ai 20 mailles et je n'en ajoute pas pendant le rang 8). Or, si je suis le diagramme, je fais une maille end, un jeté, puis il me reste 8 mailles (et non 9) avant les mailles centrales - or le diagramme fonctionne sur des ensemble de 3 mailles... Où se cache mon erreur ? Cordialement, et merci encore pour le site

DROPS Design 01.03.2017 kl. 08:51:

Bonjour Mme Gouffé, tricotez le diagramme en largeur en répétant le motif ajouré, et tricotez les mailles restantes du rang ajouré à l'endroit quand vous n'en avez pas suffisamment pour tricoter 1 motif ajouré. Bon tricot!

Ana 06.02.2017 - 20:12:

En la hilera 8, cuando se inicia con los esquelas A2 y A!, ¿ se inicia desde la hilera 8 del esquema o desde la primera? Mil gracias por su atención!

DROPS Design 16.02.2017 kl. 11:19:

Hola Ana, el diagrama se empieza a trabajar en la fila 7 de la labor y empezamos desde la 1ª fila del diagrama
