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.

See diagram A.1. The diagram show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

To calculate how often dec/inc should be done, use the total no of sts on row (e.g. 108 sts) and divide by no of dec/inc to be done (e.g. 19) = 5.68. I.e. in this example work alternately every 4th and 5th st K tog and every 5th and 6th K st tog (if dec). Or inc after alternately every 5th and 6th st.
NOTE: Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. On next row K YO twisted to avoid holes.

Cast on 108-116-122-130-130-138 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Paris. Work 4 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. AT THE SAME TIME when 1 ridge remains, dec 19-21-21-23-23-25 sts evenly from RS - READ DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 89-95-101-107-107-113 sts. K last row from WS. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and work 2 rows in stockinette st with 2 edge sts in garter st in each side. Work next row as follows from RS: 2 edge sts in garter st, work A.1A (= 3 sts), work pattern according to diagram A.1B until 6 sts remain (= 13-14-15-16-16-17 repetitions of 6 sts), work A.1C (= 4 sts) and finish with 2 edge sts in garter st. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures 5-5-6-7-8-9 cm / 2"-2"-2½"-2 3/4"-3"-3½", cast on 7 new sts for sleeve at the end of the next 2 rows = 103-109-115-121-121-127 sts on needle. Continue A.1 with 3 edge sts in garter st in each side - NOTE: Make sure that the pattern comes above each other onwards - after casting on new sts in each side there is room for 2 repetitions more of A.1B.
When piece measures 51-55-58-61-64-67 cm / 20"-21½"-22 3/4"-24"-25 1/4"-26½", bind off 7 sts at the beg of the next 2 rows = 89-95-101-107-107-113 sts remain on needle. Continue A.1 with 2 edge sts in garter st in each side until piece measures 53-57-61-65-69-73 cm / 21"-22½"-24"-25½"-27"-28 3/4", adjust to have worked the same length as on beg of piece and that next row is worked from RS. Work 2 rows in stockinette st with 2 edge sts in garter st in each side. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 and work 4 ridges back and forth while AT THE SAME TIME inc 19-21-21-23-23-25 sts evenly on 1st row – READ DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 108-116-122-130-130-138 sts. After ridges LOOSELY bind off with K from RS.

Place cast-on edge towards bind-off edge, WS against WS. Sew side and underarm seams in one - see dotted line on chart – NOTE: side seams are sewn edge to edge in outer loops of edge sts to get a flat seam, underarm seams are sewn inside bind-off and cast-on edge.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= K from RS, P from WS
= 1 YO between 2 sts
= K 2 tog
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso

Hej jeg er lidt i tvivl om hvordan jeg skal strikke A1B når vi når til linjen med 2 trekanter da trekanterne overlapper både A1A og A1C?

DROPS Design 24.04.2018 kl. 13:40:

Hei Nanna. På den 7 omgangen strikker du slik: det første kastet i overgangen A.1a/A.1b inngår i A.1a, mens fellingen og kastet på slutten av fellingen inngår i A.1b. Det samme prinsippet gjelder for overgangen mellom rapportene av A.1b, og overgangen mellom A.1b/A.1c. Maskeantallet i de forskellige delene (a,b og c) forblir det samme gjennom hele omgangen. God fornøyelse

Hallo, nachdem ich 7 Maschen auf jeder Seite zugenommen habe geht die erste Musterreihe (Reihe 3) sehr gut auf. In Reihe 5 des Musters habe ich jedoch auf der linken Seite 4 Maschen als Randmaschen übrig statt 3. Auch nach 5 mal wieder anfangen. Können Sie mir weiter helfen? Vielen Dank

DROPS Design 16.06.2017 kl. 08:56:

Liebe Frau Stammkötter, Sie sollen die Maschen so stricken: 3 M kraus rechts, A.1A x 1, A.1B wiederholen bis 7 M übrig sind, und die letzte M so stricken: A.1C (= 4 M), 3 M Kraus rechts. Fadenmarkierer können Sie zwischen jedem Rapport einsetzen, so kann es einfacher das Muster weiterzustricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Bonjour, Je ne comprend pas comment il faut tricoter le rang 7 du diagramme sachant que les mailles glissées sur deux mailles ensembles sont à cheval sur les 3 parties du diagramme. Comment faut-il tricoter A1A / A1B / A1C séparément au rang 7 ? Merci d'avance pour votre réponse . Bonne soirée

DROPS Design 25.08.2016 kl. 10:00:

Bonjour Anne-H, la vidéo ci-dessous montre comment réaliser ce diagramme en entier (pour un autre modèle mais le diagramme est le même): au rang 7, le 1er jeté = dernière m de A.1A qui va se tricoter avec les 2 premières m de A.1B, puis on tricote les 2 dernières m de A.1B avec la 1ère m du A.1B suivant puis avec la 1ère m de A.1C. Bon tricot!

VII. Reihe kann ich gar nicht zusammen bringen. Wo fängt hier Rapport an? Ps: ging nur so mit Fragen, keine lange Kommentare zugelassen)

DROPS Design 23.05.2016 kl. 10:39:

Stricken Sie fortlaufend das im Diagramm dargestellte Muster, ohne sich um den genauen Anfang und Ende des Mustersatzes zu sorgen - das ist nicht nötig und es wird aufgehen. Sie sehen wie das Zusammenstricken im Muster die Spitze des Motivs bildet.

Yuliya 21.05.2016 - 23:21:

Ist das richtig so? III. Reihe: 3 Maschen ( 2 m. zus., Umschlag, 1 m. re.) Rapport ( 2 m. re., Umschlag, 3 m.zus. Überzug, Umschlag, 1 m. re.) Ende der Reihe 4 Maschen ( 2 m. re., Umschlag, 2 m. zus. Überzug) V. Reihe: 3 Maschen ( 1 m. re., Umschlag, 2 m. zus. Überzug) Rapport ( 1m. re., 2 m. zus, Umschlag, 1m.re., Umschlag, 2 m. zus. Überzug) Ende der Reihe ( 1 m. re., 2 m. zus., Umschlag, 1 m. re.)

DROPS Design 23.05.2016 kl. 10:35:

Hallo Yulia, auch hier müssen Sie daran denken, beidseitig je 2 M kraus re zu stricken, ansonsten folgen Sie bitte dem Diagramm.

Yuliya 21.05.2016 - 23:19:

Guten Tag. Ich verstehe nicht so ganz, wo Rapport anfängt und wo endet. I. Reihe: 3 Maschen (1 m. re, 2 m. zus., Umschlag), dann Rapport ( 1 m.re., Umschlag, 2 m. zus. Überschlag, 1m.re, 2 m. zus., Umschlag) Ende der Reihe 4 Maschen ( 1 m. re., Umschlag, 2 m. zus. Überschlag, 1 m.re)

DROPS Design 23.05.2016 kl. 10:34:

Hallo Yulia, im Diagramm haben wir eingezichnet, wo die einzelnen Rapporte beginnen und enden. Denken Sie daran, vor A.1A 2 M kraus rechts zu stricken, dann geht das Muster auf.

Franca 16.05.2016 - 09:55:

Buongiorno ,mi piace molto questo coprispalle ma non so lavorare con i ferri circolari........posso utilizzare i ferri normali dritti???? grazie

DROPS Design 16.05.2016 kl. 10:15:

Buongiorno Franca. Il capo è lavorato avanti e indietro sui ferri, quindi può usare i ferri dritti e seguire le spiegazioni come riportate. Vengono consigliati i ferri circolari per avere più spazio per le m. Buon lavoro!

Sia 27.03.2016 - 20:59:

It's seems to be a problem on the last line of the pattern as A.1A ends after starting 'slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso' and it's hards to know from which stitch to repeat A. 1B. I'm looking forward to your reply as I have just started knitting it. Thank you in advance.

DROPS Design 29.03.2016 kl. 10:07:

Dear Sia, on row 7 in A.1A work the last st in A.1 A tog with the 2 first sts in A.1B, then work the last st in A.1B with the first 2 sts in next A.1B in width, and on last repeat, work the last sts in A.1B tog with the first 2 sts in A.1C. Happy knitting!
