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.
GARTER ST (back and forth):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

INCREASE TIP-1:
Inc 1 st by making 2 YO, on next row K first YO, drop the other YO off the needle to make hole.

INCREASE TIP-2:
Inc 1 st by making 2 YO, on next row P first YO, drop the other YO off the needle to make hole.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.11. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.
----------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts. The shawl is worked from mid back and down. Cast on 3 sts on circular needle size 3 mm with Alpaca. Work first row as follows (from RS): K 2 sts in every st = 6 sts. K 1 row. Work next row as follows: K 2 in every st until 1 st remains, K 1 = 11 sts. Insert a marker in the 6th st = mid st. Then continue in GARTER ST back and forth - see explanation above - AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 sts on every row from RS - READ INCREASE TIP-1, as follows: K 1, 2 YO, K 4, 2 YO, K 1 (= mid st), 2 YO, K 4, 2 YO, K 1 = 15 sts. Continue like this by inc 1 st inside 1 edge st in garter st in each side and on each side of mid st with marker in on every row from RS until finished measurements - READ INCREASE TIP-2. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION

When there are 35 sts on needle in total, work pattern (continue edge st in garter and inc as before) as follows: A.1 (= 8 sts) until mid st, 1 st in stocking st (= mid st), A.1. NOTE: Work the sts in pattern A.1 that do not fit, i.e. after inc at beg of row and after mid st, in stocking st st until there are enough sts for a new repetition of A.1. Continue like this until A.1 has been worked 8 times vertically = 163 sts. Piece measures approx. 23 cm in knitting direction.

Now work A.2 (= 8 sts) inside 1 edge st in garter st and mid st, continue inc as before. NOTE: On 5th row in A.2 K the sts that do not fit the pattern before inc before mid st and at the end of row. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 183 sts on needle.

Now work pattern (continue edge sts and inc as before): * A.3 (= 1 st on 1st row), A.4 (= 8 sts) until 1 st remains before mid st, A.5 (= 1 st on 1st row) *, repeat from *-* after inc on each side of mid st. When enough sts have been inc inside and on each side of mid st, work A.4 over these inc sts (i.e. over every A.3 and A.5).
Continue like this until A.3-A.5 have been worked 5 times vertically = 343 sts on needle.

Now work A.2 inside 1 edge st in garter st and mid st, continue inc as before. NOTE: On 5th row in A.2 K the sts that do not fit the pattern before inc before mid st and at the end of row. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 363 sts on needle. Piece measures approx. 69 cm along mid st.

Now work 1 row in stocking st from RS (continue edge sts and inc as before), AT THE SAME TIME inc 14 sts evenly (i.e. 7 sts on each side of mid st) = 381 sts. P 1 row from WS inside 1 edge st in garter st in each side.

Now work pattern (NOTE: Edge sts in garter st + inc are shown in diagram) as follows: A.6 (= 15 sts), A.7 (= 26 sts) 6 times in width, A.8 (= 19 sts), A.9 (= 20 sts), A.10 (= 26 sts) 6 times in width, A.11 (= 15 sts). Continue like this back and forth until entire diagram has been worked vertically - NOTE: Note the extra YO on each side of every st with arrow in diagram. This is done to get tips along cast-off on edge of shawl. When A.6-A.11 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 497 sts on needle.

Now insert 1 marker in every st with arrow in diagram (= 17 markers). Work 2 rows in stocking st (continue inc as before). Finish with 1 row K from WS AT THE SAME TIME inc with 1 YO on each side of every st with marker (= 34 sts inc). Loosely cast off. Cast off YOs as sts.

Diagram

= K from RS, P from WS
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso
= K 2 tog
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso
= P from RS, K from WS
= 2 YO. On next row work the first of the two YOs P, drop the other YO off the needle

Are the tips created in the last row of increases on either side of the 17 markers, the K on WS? Or do those increases occur in either of the stockinette rows? I need clarification please.

DROPS Design 12.11.2018 kl. 08:55:

Dear Bernadette, the tips are created with the yo's on each side of the stitch with the arrow in diagrams A.7, A.8 and A.9 - + the YO's on each side of the sts with markers when working the last row K from WS before bind off. Happy knitting!

A1 ist nach der mittelmasche gemeint, dass man A1 spiegelverkehrt stricken muss? Also zuerst das zusammen stricken Umschlag Masche rechts Umschlag zusammen stricken 3 rechte Maschen gemeint? Vom Foto kann man es nicht ableiten, es würde aber Sinn machen.

Lieber Loup, so können Sie wahrscheinlich auch stricken, dh spiegelverkehrt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

En ce qui concerne votre modèle châle 0-7718 et plus particulièrement les diagrammes 3,4 et 5 je me trouve dans l'impossibilité de le réaliser car dès la 2ème ligne il manque 2 mailles et ce jusqu'à la fin de ces diagrammes. J'ai testé sur un nombre de maille réduit il s'avère qu'en suivant vos explications le dessin n'a strictement rien à voir avec le modèle. Peut être y a t il une erreur ??? Pourriez vous éclairer ma lanterne ??? A l'avance merci. Michèle

Bonjour Mme Monico, tricotez ainsi les 183 m: 1 m lis, A.3 (= 1 m), 11 x A.4 (= 11 x 8 m), A.5 (= 1 m), 1 m centrale, A.3 (= 1 m), 11 x A.4 (= 11 x 8 m), A.5 (= 1 m), 1 m lis, soit: 1 + 1 + 88 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 88 + 1 + 1 = 183 m. Bon tricot!
