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.
* Work 2 rows lilac/green, work 2 rows olive/rust/plum *, repeat from *-* until finished measurements.

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

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

Work back and forth in STRIPES - see explanation above. Cast on 90 sts on needle size 4 mm with lilac/green. Work 3 sts in garter st, A.1 (= 21 sts) 4 times in total in width and finish with 3 sts in garter st. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 74 sts on needle, now work A.2 (= 17 sts) over A.1. Continue pattern and stripes like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 79 cm, adjust so that next stripe is with lilac/green, work 2 ridges over all sts AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row dec 10 sts evenly = 64 sts. Cast off.
Knit another part the same way.

Sew the 2 parts neatly tog along cast-off edges.


= K from RS, P from WS
= K from WS
= K 2 tog
= 1 YO between 2 sts

I am confused, are charts A1 and A2 alternated throughout the scarf ? Or Is chart A1 just the beginning and end? Thank you.

DROPS Design 26.10.2018 kl. 08:55:

Dear Heather, you work A.1 one time in height at the beginning of the first piece, then repeat A.2 in height (with stripes). Then work A.1 one time in height at the beginning of 2nd piece, repeat A.2 in height (with stripes) and sew both pieces together (cast off edges together) so that A.1 = ends of the scarf, and A.2 = "body" of the scarf. Happy knitting!

Hallo, mir erschließt sich nicht, warum ich den Schal in zwei Teilen stricken muss. Wellig wird die zweite Kante doch auch, wenn ich in der letzten Reihe die erste Reihe des Musters stricke. Oder nicht?

DROPS Design 17.10.2018 kl. 07:39:

Liebe Claudia, damit beide Ende genau gleich sind, beginnt man jedes Teil von der Ende und dann werden beide Teilen in der Mitte zusammengenäht. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Gonda 19.09.2018 - 10:22:

Waarom wordt deze sjaal in twee aparte delen gebreid ? Is het niet mogelijk om de sjaal tot op de gewenste lengte te breien ? Moet je dan in de voorlaatste ook 10 steken minderen ?

DROPS Design 19.09.2018 kl. 16:07:

Dag Conda, Dit wordt gedaan om de uiteinden (in A.1 gebreid) gelijk te krijgen.

Jacky 31.08.2018 - 12:57:

I would like to knit this scarf. My main colour would be Delight Sunset Waves or Fabel Emerald City. Please advise which yarn would coordinate with either of these colours. (Colour or texture in yarn group A) Thank you

DROPS Design 03.09.2018 kl. 15:51:

Dear Jacky, Although we do not give advice on choice of colors, you can always pick a solid color in Fabel or in Alpaca to contrast with the gradient color you chose. Feel free to share photos of your scarf in our Ravelry Group! Happy Knitting!

Bonjour, concernant le diagramme A1, faut-il tricoter : - 2 m ens à l'end, 2 m ens à l'end, 13 m end sur l'end (ou env sur l'env), 2 m ens à l'end, 2 m ens à l'end, puis à nouveau à la suite des deux dernières m ens à l'end, recommencer 2 m ens à l'end, 2 m ens à l'end, ce qui fera 4 m ens à l'end à la suite ? Merci pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 19.01.2018 kl. 11:02:

Bonjour Rosy, on répète A.1 en largeur, ainsi on va tricoter (2 m ens, 2 m ens, 13 m end, 2 m ens, 2 m ens), entre 2 A.1 on aura donc 4 x 2 m ens, et 13 m end entre les diminutions. Bon tricot!

Undskyld er lidt nybegynder, forstår det stadig ikke helt:syr man de 2 stykker sammen I bredden, eller? Hvordan lave det i et stykke? Dobbelt antal masker?

DROPS Design 19.10.2017 kl. 09:11:

Hej, du strikker 2 ens stykker ifølge opskriften. Bagefter syr du de to aflukningskanter sammen. God fornøjelse!

Kari Lisbjerg 17.10.2017 - 16:48:

Hej, forstår ikke, hvorfor, der skal strikkes 2 stykker, kan det ikke laves i et stykke? Er det fordi, det er dobbelt I bredde eller tykkelsen?

DROPS Design 18.10.2017 kl. 08:08:

Hei Kari. Det er fordi at bølgemønstret skal vende samme vei når skjerfet "henger" ned. Du kan fint strikke hele skjerfet i et stykke om du ønsker det. God Fornøyelse!

Chrissy Libert 12.06.2017 - 19:43:

Ik begrijp dat ik met A1 moet beginnen met 21 steken en dan doorgaan met A2 met 17 steken. Dus op het eind van A2 heb ik 74 steken, klopt het dat ik dan A1 terug moet beginnen met 74 steken ipv 90? En dus geen verminderingen moet breien?

DROPS Design 13.06.2017 kl. 14:44:

Hoi Chrissy, Je breit na het opzetten 3 steken in ribbelstekek en dan 4 herhalingen in de breedte van A.1 en op het einde van de naald brei je nog 3 steken in ribbelsteek. A.1 heeft 2 naalden en als je klaar bent met A.1 begin je dus op de 3e naald met telpatroon A.2. Van A.2 brei je ook 4 herhalingen in de breedte met aan beide zijkanten weer de ribbelsteken. A2. herhaal je vervolgens steeds in de hoogte tot de gewenste lengte van de sjaal.

Susanna 27.02.2017 - 16:57:

Volgens mij klopt het patroon ook niet. ( zie opmerking Marga Mohlmann 21/11/2016) Totaal aantal steken 74 en het patroon gaat over 17 steken 4 x 17 = 68... Hoe brei ik de resterende 6 steken dan?

DROPS Design 28.02.2017 kl. 15:54:

Hoi Susanna. Lees het antwoord aan Marga Mohlmann. Je breit eerste A.1 (waar je mindert in de tweede nld) daarna heb je 74 st en breit: 3 ribbelst, 4 keer A.2 (17 st per herhaling) en eindig met 3 ribbelst.
