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

See diagrams A.1 to A.6. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 22 sts on needle size 7 mm with Eskimo. Work 1 ridge in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Then work A.1 (= 22 sts). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION Repeat A.1 until piece measures 14-15-16 cm (adjust so that next row is from RS). Work A.2 over A.1. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 10 sts on needle. Work A.3 1 time vertically. Work A.4 over A.3. Work YOs twisted in pattern. When A.4 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 22 sts on needle. Work A.1 until piece measures 48-50-52 cm. Work 1 ridge. Cast off. Sew tog cast on edge to cast off edge.

Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 72-84 sts on circular needle size 8 mm with Eskimo. Work A.5 (= 12 sts) 6-7 times in width in total. When piece measures 4 cm, work A.6 over A.5. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 20-22 cm, adjust after one whole repetition of A.6, work A.5 over A.6. Cast off when piece measures 24-26 cm.

Working the headband (straight needles) and confused by “missing boxes” in pattern A.2. Row 1, for example, appears to start on 2nd stitch and skip 4th and 5th, 7th (ie boxes missing). How do I interpret the empty spaces? Also not sure how to interpret heavy short diagonal line intermittent across second row. Nothing in diagram key matches exactly. Thabks

DROPS Design 10.01.2019 kl. 10:03:

Dear Sondra, start reading the diagram from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left from RS (and from the left towards the right from WS), working A.2 you will then dec 1 st (= P2 tog) in the middle of A.2, on next row the missing stitch is matching the st you decreased before. Happy knitting!

Buongiorno , Volevo fare un'ultima domanda. Ogni riga di uno schema è un ferro e rappresenta i punti da fare sul diritto del lavoro ,ciò significa che ogni riga è un ferro diritto è un ferro rovescio? Spero di essere stata chiara.Grazie dell'aiuto.

DROPS Design 14.12.2018 kl. 08:29:

Buongiorno Monica. Nel diagramma trova tutti i ferri da lavorare seguendo il motivo stesso. Quindi: primo ferro (dal basso) si lavora sul diritto del lavoro; secondo ferro si lavora sul rovescio del lavoro; terzo ferro sul diritto e così via. Buon lavoro!

Monica Panera 13.12.2018 - 19:05:

Buonasera, non riesco a capire lo schema A3 della fascia per capelli modello Warm Lavender. Non capisco perché devo mettere 5 punti su un ferro ausiliario e come procedere con il lavoro. Ho un buio totale. Grazie per il vostro aiuto. Panera Monica

DROPS Design 13.12.2018 kl. 22:22:

Buonasera Monica, le 5 maglie vengono messe in sospeso per creare la treccia. Deve metterle su un ferro ausiliario sul davanti del lavoro, lavorare 5 maglie a diritto e lavorare le 5 maglie in sospeso a diritto, creando così la treccia. Buon lavoro!

Monica Panera 12.12.2018 - 16:49:

Buongiorno, ho difficoltà a capire lo schema A2 della fascia per capelli che sto facendo Warm Lavender modello:ee-536 Quando nello schema non vi sono quadratini che spiegano il punto da fare ma c'è il vuoto cosa significa? Che il punto è da passare sull'altro ferro senza lavorarlo? Aspetto una vostra gentile risposta.Grazie

DROPS Design 12.12.2018 kl. 17:02:

Buongiorno Monica. Trova un vuoto perchè al ferro precedente è stata diminuita una maglia. Quando incontra il vuoto, deve lavorare la maglia come indicato nel quadratino successivo. Quindi per es., alla riga 6 del diagramma A2 (riga lavorata sul rovescio, quindi si legge da sinistra verso destra), lavora: 3 m rovescio, 3 m diritto, 2 maglie rovescio e così via. Buon lavoro!

Hur många masker ska man lägga upp om man har 4mm stickor och garn till stickorna?

DROPS Design 24.02.2018 kl. 09:34:

Hei Alva. Oppskriften er skrevet til pinne 7 og Eskimo ... et garn som er tykkere og koster ca 15 kr for 50 gr ... kanske du skulle bytte garn - da blir den myk og fin og du kan bruke oppskriften :) Go Fornøyelse.

What is meant by: K YO twisted on next row & P YO twisted on next row?

DROPS Design 26.11.2017 kl. 06:49:

Hi Sandra, To avoid a hole after increasing by making a yarn over (YO) you need to work them twisted. Either this will be knitted twisted or purled twisted depending on the pattern. To work twisted you need to insert the needle in the back loop of the stitch, rather than the front. I hope this helps. Happy knitting!

Sandra 23.11.2017 - 01:03:

Part 2: I am so confused! YouTube person says that when you are reading charts in the round, everything is always read from Right to Left. So what is the right way?

DROPS Design 23.11.2017 kl. 08:35:

Dear Sandra, that's right, diagrams will be read here from the right towards the left every round (= you are working here in the round, ie from RS) starting on the bottom corner on the right side. Read more here. Happy knitting!

Sandra 23.11.2017 - 01:02:

Part 1: A friend of mine read chart A.6 as this: "I'm looking at that exact pattern and this particular chart A6 is just k2tog, yo, k, k. The cable is worked in chart A3. In laments terms this would read: R1: p4, k3, p2, k3 R2: p3, k2, p3, k2tog, yo, k2 R3: p4, k3, p2, k3 R4: p3, k2, p3, k1, k2tog, yo, k1 R5: p4, k3, p2, k3 R6: p3, k2, p3, k2, k2tog, yo R7: p4, k3, p2, k3 R8: p3, k2, p3, k4" Is this correct?

DROPS Design 23.11.2017 kl. 08:33:

Dear Sandra, start reading diag. from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left on every round (from RS), so that on row 3 in A.3 work the cable (previous and next rows are K from RS) and work row 3 in A.6 as follows: P3, K2, P3, K2, K2 tog, YO. When diagrams are done in height, repeat from row 1. Happy knitting!

Sandra 22.11.2017 - 01:33:

Hi again...sorry for bugging you. In chart A6 of the neck warmer pattern - 1 slant from Right to Left over 2 squares then a yarn over is a cable (right?). How does this work? Slip 2 sts onto a cable needle (to the front or back yarn over then yarn over then knit from the cable?

DROPS Design 22.11.2017 kl. 09:10:

Dear Sandra, the symbol used in A.6 with a slant line is 3rd symbol under diagram text, ie Knit 2 stitches together (and then make a YO (= 5th symbol) to compensate this dec). Happy knitting!

Sandra 21.11.2017 - 02:52:

Hi again, Do you have a picture of the finished headband from the back? I've just finished the headband using Drops Andes in Grey Heather (4010). I haven't seamed it yet because I am really not sure what it is supposed to look like since there is a ridge on each end. Should I assume that the rib isn't supposed to line up to do an invisible seam or are you supposed to see the ridge? Please help if you can. Do you have videos on seaming - couldn't find any.

DROPS Design 21.11.2017 kl. 08:42:

Dear Sandra, head band starts and ends with 1 ridge, so that there will be 2 ridges next to each other when sewing cast on and cast off edge. The video below shows how to make such seam. Happy assembly!
