SHAWL:
Worked back and forth, top down. Cast on 6 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with Cotton Merino. Work 3 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above, and inc 4 sts evenly on every row from RS - READ INCREASE TIP = 18 sts. Work next row as follows from RS: Work 3 sts in GARTER ST – see explanation above, insert 1 marker, * A.1 (= 2 sts), insert 1 marker *, repeat from *-* 5 more times, finish with 3 sts in garter st = 7 markers in piece. Move the markers upwards when working. Continue with A.1 and 3 sts in garter st in each side of piece. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 138 sts on needle. Work next row as follows from RS: 3 sts in garter st, A.2 (= 11 sts) until 3 sts remain (= 12 times in width), finish with 3 sts in garter st. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 186 sts on needle. Work next row as follows from RS: 3 sts in garter st, A.3 (= 30 sts) until 3 sts remain (= 6 times in width), finish with 3 sts in garter st. On last row from RS in A.3 inc 1 st with a YO after the 3 sts in garter st at the beg of row. When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 277 sts on needle. Piece measures approx. 38 cm / 15'' on the longest (measured along the middle).

Work next row as follows from RS: 3 sts in garter st, work A.4 (= 3 sts), * A.5 (= 40 sts), A.6 (= 5 sts) *, repeat from *-* 4 more times, work A.5, A.7 (= 3 sts), finish with 3 sts in garter st. Inc in A.4/A.6/A.7 is drawn in A.5 so that the pattern fits. Repeat A.4/A.6/A.7 vertically until A.5 has been worked 1 time vertically. When A.5 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 361 sts on needle. Piece measures approx. 53 cm / 21'' on the longest (measured along the middle).

Work as follows from RS: 3 sts in garter st, 1 st in garter st (this st is worked in garter st when working in garter st in A.8 and in stockinette st when working in stockinette st in A.8), repeat A.8 (= 59 sts) until 3 sts remain (= 6 times in width), finish with 3 sts in garter st. NOTE: Eyelet row in A.8 does not fit in diagram but fits in total on row, first st after 3 sts in garter st should be work in stockinette st from RS.

On last row from RS insert 1 marker thread in the middle of every repetition of A.8, i.e. between: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso, insert 1 marker and K 2 tog. Move the marker threads upwards when working. When A.8 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 397 sts on needle. Piece measures approx. 58 cm / 22 3/4'' on the longest (measured along the middle).

Inc made in A.4/A.6/A.7 are worked in stocking st. Repeat A.4/A.6/A.7 vertically (make sure that A.4/A.6/A.7 are come above itself) until A.9 has been worked 1 time vertically. When A.9 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 433 sts on needle.

Genevieve 17.06.2018 - 06:30:

I'm on row 5 of A5. Started with 3 sts in garter st. Followed by A5 40 stitches and left with on 3 stitches for A6 instead of 5 stitches. Can enlighten what I've done wrong?

DROPS Design 18.06.2018 kl. 08:34:

Dear Genevieve, work A.5 as shown in diagram, ie the decreases in the middle of A.5 should be always worked over the middle sts, on row 4 you see the increases made in the other diagrams - just continue working row 5 as shown staring with K4 before YO (and ending with K4 after last YO) and working the decreases in the middle of repeat as before. Happy knitting!

Genevieve 17.06.2018 - 06:20:

Work next row as follows from RS: 3 sts in garter st, work A.4 (= 3 sts), * A.5 (= 40 sts), A.6 (= 5 sts) *, repeat from *-* 4 more times, work A.5, A.7 (= 3 sts), finish with 3 sts in garter st. Inc in A.4/A.6/A.7 is drawn in A.5 so that the pattern fits. I'm stuck here. Starting this section and can advise where do i do the increase? The pattern chart doesn\'t state any increase.

DROPS Design 18.06.2018 kl. 08:31:

Dear Genevieve, you are increasing in A.4, A.6 and A.7 (= see rows with YOs but without dec = row 3 and 9). These decrease are shown in A.5 - make sure you will always have the correct number of sts in A.4/A.7 (= 3 sts) and A.6 (= 5 sts), and that the YO's in these diagrams will always lined up. Happy knitting!

Lise 07.06.2018 - 12:00:

Je suis dans le modèle 170-12 ,dans la séquence A5 et cela fait trois fois que je détricote le troisième rang. Je comprends qu’il ne faut pas faire les augmentations,mais dans A4, A6 et A7 il y a des mailles glissé et des mailles tricoter ensemble. Donc ma question est les augmentations ont les fait plus mais les diminutions elles oui?

DROPS Design 07.06.2018 kl. 13:26:

Bonjour Lise, tricotez les diagrammes comme indiqué: 3 m point mousse, A.4 (= 3 m), *A.5 (= 40 m), A.6 (= 5 m) *, répétez de *-* encore 4 fois, terminez par A.5, A.7 (= 3 m) et 3 m point mousse. Les augmentations vont se faire dans A.4, A.6 et A.7 mais sont reportées au rang suivant sur les diagrammes A.5. Veillez à toujours bien tricoter A.4 et A.7 sur les mêmes 3 mailles et A.6 sur les mêmes 5 mailles (= pour que les jours soient bien alignés). Bon tricot!

Lorraine 19.08.2017 - 04:14:

Autre question 170-12 je suis à la section A.5 première section il me faut 48 mailles et j'en ai que 45 comment j'intègre le A.4 car il me faut 45 mailles pour le A.5A.6 et j'aurai le même problème à la fin pour A.7 merci

DROPS Design 20.08.2017 kl. 17:14:

Bonjour Lorraine. Avant de commencer le diagramme A.5, vous avez 277 m. Vous tricotez le rang suivant ainsi: 3 m point mousse, A.4 1 fois (=3 m), vous répétez A.5 (=40m) + A.6 (=5 m) 5 fois en total, puis A.5 (40 m), A.7 (3m) et enfin 3 m point mousse. En total : 3+3+(40+5)*5+40+3+3= 277 m. Bon tricot.

Lorraine 19.08.2017 - 02:06:

Je fais le modèle 170-12 présentement et je voulais savoir si je comprends bien je suis à la séquence A.5 je pense que l'on exécute A.4 A.5A.6 A.5A.6 A.5A.6 A.5A.6 A.5A.6 A.5 A.7 alors ma question que si je calcule le nombre de mailles je n'arrive pas au même nombre qu'indiqué à la fin ceci doit me donner 361 et j'ai 301 je voudrais savoir ce qui me manque merci.

DROPS Design 20.08.2017 kl. 17:21:

Bonjour Lorraine. Après avoir tricoté le diagramme A.5 1 fois en verticale, vous avez 54 m dans le diagramme A.5. Vous avez pourtant: 3 m point mousse, A.4 (=3 m), A.5 (= 54 m) + A.6 (=5 m) 5 fois en total, A.5 (54 m), A.7 (3m) et enfin 3 m point mousse. En total : 3+3+(54+ 5)*5+54+3+3= 361 m. Bon tricot.

Bonita 11.06.2017 - 00:45:

I am having trouble starting A10 and A11

DROPS Design 12.06.2017 kl. 12:58:

Hi Bonita, A.10 and A.11 are only 2 stitches in width on the first row, knit from right side and purl from wrong side (in A.10 you start with knit from the right side and in A.11 you start with purl from wrong side. To start A.10, work 3 stitches in garter stitch, then A.10, then garter stitch until 2 stitches are left before the marker, decrease as before, garter stitch until 2 stitches before marker, the A.11 (2 stitches) followed by A.10 as you have started on your repeat and so on....Continue like this upwards according to A.10 and A.11. I hope this helps, Kind regards, Deirdre

Eleni Sideri 23.11.2016 - 10:16:

Where we use A5 in this pattern?

DROPS Design 24.11.2016 kl. 18:48:

Hi Eleni, the English version should be corrected. Please see the US language version. When the piece measures approx. 38 cm, you will start A.5. Happy knitting!

Kathy Griffin 04.10.2016 - 18:55:

Thank you for your answers to my questions. They were most helpful. My misunderstanding was to do with the explanation at the beginning of the pattern which states: INCREASE TIP: Inc 1 St by making 1 YO, on next row work YO twisted to avoid holes. I assumed that I should follow this, even when following the charts. I guess that it simply applied to the start of the chart as you increased from 6 St to 18 St.

Kathy Griffin 03.10.2016 - 19:47:

The reason that I asked the previous question is because I am not seeing the holes in my work that make the pattern. Might I be doing something else wrong? Do I always twist the YO on the following row to avoid any holes? Thanks, Kathy from Canada

DROPS Design 04.10.2016 kl. 08:48:

Dear Mrs Griffin, the video below shows how to work the beg of shawl (= A.1) when you are inc with Kfbloop - when you are working a YO (= 6th symbol), do not twist yo on next round it should create a hole. Happy knitting!
