See diagram A.1.

Worked as a square in the round on double pointed needles, switch to circular needle when needed.

Cast on 6 sts with off white on 1 double pointed needle size 3 mm. (Leave approx. 20 cm of yarn at the start, this will be used at the end for assembly.)
ROW 1 (= WS): P all sts.
ROW 2 (= RS): * K 1, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* 4 times, K 1 = 11 sts.
Distribute sts on 4 double pointed needles size 3 mm (= 3 needles with 3 sts and 1 needle with 2 sts) without working the sts. Insert a marker at the beg of the round. Then work in the round. NOTE: K YOs twisted to avoid holes. Now work as follows: * K 1, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* 8 times, K 2 = 20 sts. K 1 round.

Distribute the 20 sts so that there are 5 sts on every double pointed needle and beg of round is in the transition between two double pointed needles. Insert a marker in each of the 4 transitions between every needle. Then work pattern A.1 4 times on round. Markers indicate corners. Now work YOs as shown in diagram. Move the markers when working outwards. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When entire diagram has been worked, cast off with K. Make sure that the cast-off edge is not too tight. Piece measures approx. 26 x 26 cm. Use the yarn end from the start to baste the hole in the middle, cut and fasten off. Work another cloth in each of the remaining colours.

Hallo, das Modell ist als Lappen viel zu schade zum Benutzen. Wir verwenden sie als Deckchen

Si j'assemble plusieurs de ces carrés en largeur et en longueur, pourrais-je en faire un chemin de table?

Bonjour Mme Ethier, vous pouvez tout à fait utiliser le modèle de ces lavettes et le "détourner" pour une toute autre utilisation. Bon tricot!

Ser garnet må handvaskes.. Kan man ikke vaske i maskin? Hvis man bruker en klut , så bør jo dette vaskes i maskin for å få den ren og bakteriefri

Hej Marina. Jeg ville strikke en pröve og vaske den i maskinen. Har din maskine et haandvask eller fintvask program, saa kan du pröve det. Men pröv först med en pröve saa du ved praecis hvordan garnet reagerer i DIN maskine. Jeg har selv vasket min Belle jakke i maskine med succes :)

Hvorfor kommer diagrammet ikke med ud, når man printer opskriften ud?

DROPS Design 23.05.2016 kl. 12:06:

Hej Jeanne. Kan det vaere du har glemt at inkludere det i de side antal du printer? Jeg har lige prövet og faar diagrammet fint med :-)

Jeanne Meisner 23.05.2016 - 11:50:

Når man printer denne opskrift ud, kommer diagrammet ikke med.

Ook leuk; blokjes maken in verschillende kleuren en aan elkaar naaien tot deken.
