GARTER ST (back and forth):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.
----------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts. Work from tip and up in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Cast on 2 sts on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with light gray. Then work as follows:
ROW 1 (= RS): K 1, 1 YO (= 1 st inc), K the rest of row.
ROW 2 (= WS): K 1, 1 YO (= 1 st inc), K the rest of row.
ROW 3: K 1, 1 YO (= 1 st inc), K 1, 1 YO (= 1 st inc), K the rest of row (= 2 sts inc in total).
ROW 4: K 1, 1 YO (= 1 st inc), K 1, 1 YO (= 1 st inc), K the rest of row (= 2 sts inc in total).

REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE Repeat 1st to 4th row until piece measures 6 cm / 2 3/8'', adjust so that next row is from WS. Now work short rows as follows:

SECTION 1:
Continue to inc as before, but in this section inc only in left side of piece (= in beg of row from WS). Work short rows as follows:
ROW 1 (= WS): K until 6 sts remain, turn piece (these sts are no longer worked).
ROW 2 (= RS): K back.
ROW 3: K until 12 sts remain (includes the first 6 sts), turn piece (these sts are no longer worked).
ROW 4: K back.
Continue like this, i.e. work over 6 sts less every other row and inc as before in left side of piece, until 6 sts remain or less on row (last row is from RS). Work 1 row over all sts from WS and inc as before.

SECTION 2:
Switch color to heather. Continue to inc as before, but in this section inc only in right side of piece (= in beg of row from RS). Work short rows as follows:
ROW 1 (= RS): K the first 6 sts, turn piece.
ROW 2 (= WS): K back.
ROW 3: K over 6 sts more than on 1st row, turn piece (i.e. sts inc on 1st row are not counted).
ROW 4: Work back.
Continue like this, i.e. work 6 more sts every other row until
1 ridge has been worked over all sts (last row is from WS).

SECTION 3:
Switch color to gray. K 1 row from RS. Work as SECTION 1.

SECTION 4:
Switch color to off white. Work as SECTION 2.

SECTION 5:
Switch to light gray. K 1 row from RS. Work as SECTION 1.

SECTION 6:
Switch color to heather. Work as SECTION 2.

SECTION 7:
Switch color to off white. K 1 row from RS. Work as SECTION 1.

SECTION 8:
Switch color to gray. Work as SECTION 2.

Bind off as follows: * bind off 5 sts, 1 YO and bind off YO *, repeat from *-* until all sts have been bound off.

I'm a little confused.how many times i will knit section 1 and section2 and what do you mean until 6sts remain or less on row?(section1)thank you.

DROPS Design 16.01.2017 kl. 09:09:

Dear Sophia, work short rows in section 1, ie work from WS until 6 sts remain, turn and work last row until you have worked 2 rows over the first 6 sts or less from WS, turn and work return row. Then work 1 row from WS. See also video below. Happy knitting!

Denise Voiss 13.01.2017 - 22:36:

Was I suppose to do a wrap and turn for this? Sorry for the questions, new knitter.

DROPS Design 16.01.2017 kl. 09:04:

See answer below - if you choose to work short rows with wrap & turn, remember to not tighten to keep same tension and texture. Happy knitting!

Denise Voiss 13.01.2017 - 22:30:

Confused and messed up...I have holes! After knitting the 6 stitch short rows across the entire row, (Section 1) Work 1 row over all sts from WS and inc as before.) Do you then knit a row, in the same color, across the row? As this is the point where I get holes. I then go on to Section 2 and knit the first six stitchs (with a YO at the begining), turn it and knit back to the beginning where I knit 1, YO, then knit 12 stitches.How can I avoid the holes?

DROPS Design 16.01.2017 kl. 09:03:

Dear Mrs Voiss, you can tighten the thread when working the first after you have turned in short rows. But remember to keep correct tension, there maybe small holes that will then not be that visible at the end. See also video below. Happy knitting!

I want to convert this to stockinette stitch. How would I prevent it from curling? What edging could I add (4 stitches of seed stitch on each end)? And how would I knit this into the pattern given that there is only a 2 stitch cast on? Thank you!

DROPS Design 11.01.2017 kl. 09:12:

Dear Mrs Voiss, we are not able to adjust each our pattern to every individual request, you are welcome to contact your DROPS store for any further personnal assistance or maybe rather choose another pattern worked in stocking st if you rather. Happy knitting!

I love this scarf, wondered if it's possible to convert it to a crochet pattern?? I haven't tried knitting, not sure I could do it!!

DROPS Design 08.11.2016 kl. 09:52:

Dear Mrs Dunn, this pattern is only knitted one - you will find different videos showing how to knit if you like to learn, see tab "videos" and scrolling down to the bottom of the page. Happy knitting!

Hallo , habe das Drops Tuch fertig gestrickt und genau nach der Anleitung aber leider war das Tuch am Ende nur 39 cm lang . Habe alles nochmal mehrmals durchgelesen aber keinen Fehler gefunden. Hätte man die Wolle doppelt nehmen müssen ? Liebe Grüße Petra Mohr

DROPS Design 28.10.2016 kl. 09:37:

Liebe Frau Mohr, haben Sie auch alle Zunahmen am Anfang jeder 2. Reihe (dh gleichzeitig mit den verkürzte R) gestrickt? Diese Zunahmen geben Breit und Höhe (es gibt immer mehr M. mit den Zunahmen, und damit mehr verkürzten Reihen).

Carmen 19.10.2016 - 07:08:

Cuando se termina la hilera antes de cambiar de color, se tejen los puntos de toda la hilera o sólo los 6 últimos y se cambia de color?

DROPS Design 30.10.2016 kl. 12:24:

Hola Carmen. ¿Puedes concretar la pregunta? ¿A qué fila y qué sección te estás refiriendo.?

Anke Graetz 17.09.2016 - 15:03:

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, ich bin Strickanfängerin. Wieviel Maschen werden ab Abschnitt 1 in jeder Rückreihe zugenommen? Abwechselnd 1M und dann 2M oder immer 2M. Danke im voraus für Ihre Hilfe. MfG Anke Graetz

DROPS Design 19.09.2016 kl. 09:12:

Liebe Frau Graetz, es wird immer abwechselnd 1M und 2 M am Anfang jeder Reihe zugenommen (also bei der Randmaschen, nicht in der mitte wo man die verkürtzte Reihe strickt).

Beatriz Silva 24.06.2016 - 17:01:

O modelo é simples mas tem uma boa combinação de cores, permitindo alterar o colorido, mantendo o esquema

Johanna 10.06.2016 - 12:38:

So simple and beautiful!
