Switch to 1 strand olive and 1 strand dark olive, repeat 5th-12th ROW 9 times in total = 213 sts.
Switch to 1 strand dark olive and 1 strand green/turquoise, repeat 5th-12th ROW 8 times in total = 309 sts.
Then work pattern A.1-A.5 with 2 strands green/turquoise.

GARTER ST (back and forth on circular needle):
K all rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1-A.5. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

----------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
Cast on 3 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with 2 strands olive. Work STRIPES - see explanation above and work as follows:
ROW 1 (= RS): K all sts.
ROW 2 (= WS): K 1, 1 YO, P 1, 1 YO, K 1 = 5 sts.
ROW 3 (= RS): K 1, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K 1 = 9 sts. Insert 1 marker in the middle st (= mid st).
ROW 4 (= WS): 1 edge sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above, work P until 1 st remains and finish with 1 edge st in garter st.
Continue to work and inc as follows with 1 edge st in garter st in each side:
ROW 5 (= RS): 1 edge st in garter st, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K until mid st, 1 YO, K 1 (mid st), 1 YO, K until 2 sts remain on row, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO and 1 edge st in garter st.
ROW 6 (= WS): 1 edge st in garter st, P 2, P next YO twisted to avoid hole, P until 4 sts remain on row, P first YO twisted, P 2 and finish with 1 edge st in garter st.
ROW 7 (= RS): 1 edge st in garter st, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO, K until mid st, 1 YO, K 1 (= mid st), 1 YO, K until 2 sts remain on row, 1 YO, K 1, 1 YO and 1 edge st in garter st.
ROW 8 (= short row from WS): 1 edge st in garter st, K 2, K 1 twisted (to avoid hole), K 4, turn piece. NOTE: K this row from WS to make a ridge seen from RS.
ROW 9 (= RS): Slip 1st st as if to K, tighten yarn and K 7.
ROW 10 (= WS): 1 edge st in garter st, P until 4 sts remain on row, P first YO twisted (to avoid hole), P 2 and finish with 1 edge st in garter st.
ROW 11 (= short row from RS): 1 edge st in garter st, K 7, turn piece.
ROW 12 (= WS): Slip 1st st as if to K, tighten yarn and K 7. NOTE: K this row from WS to make a ridge seen from RS. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE

Repeat 5th-12th ROW back and forth BUT on every repetition work 2 sts more on short rows until short rows have been worked over 26 sts in total in each side. Then work short rows over only over 26 sts until finished measurements (work the other sts in stockinette st as before). After every repetition 12 new sts inc (inc 5th and 7th ROW).

After last stripe and repetition of 5th-12th ROW there are 309 sts on needle. Switch to 2 strands green/turquoise. K 1 row from RS while inc 10 sts as follows: Inc as before in each side and at mid st (= 6 sts) and inc in addition 4 sts evenly (i.e. 2 sts on each side of middle st, inc these sts with YOs that are worked twisted on next row) = 319 sts on needle. K 1 row from WS (work edge sts in garter st as before).

Then work according to diagram as follows: A.1 over 2 sts, repeat A.2 until 1 st before mid st, work A.3 over the next 3 sts (mid st is in the middle of A.3), repeat A.4 until 2 sts remain and work A.5 over these sts. Then work diagram 1 time in total vertically. Do not cut the yarn but bind off with picot - see explanation below.

BIND-OFF EDGE WITH PICOT:
Loosely bind off with K from RS as follows: K 1, ((** insert right needle in between the first 2 sts on left needle (i.e. between sts on needle, not through sts), make 1 YO on right needle, pull YO forwards between sts and slip YO on left needle **, repeat from **-** 2 more times (= 3 new sts on left needle). * K first st on left needle, pass first st on right needle over last st worked *)), repeat from *-* 6 times in total and repeat from ((-)) along the entire shawl until 1 st remains, cut the yarn and pull it through last st.

Hei, etter første pinne på diagram A1-A5, hvor går veien videre? Skal nå strikke på vrangen tilbake. Forsetter jeg slik at A5 kommer over A5, A4 over A4 osv, eller begynner jeg på A1 igjen? I så fall har jeg da avsluttet retten med diagram A5 og begynner vrangen med A1. A2 kommer da over A4, A3 som før, A4 over A2 og A5 over A1. Hva er riktig? Takker for hjep. :)

DROPS Design 21.08.2018 kl. 11:45:

Hei Mari. Diagrammene viser alle pinnene sett fra rettsiden. Når du skal strikke vra vrangen må du derfor lese diagrammet «baklengs»: altså i motsatt rekkefølge og motsatt vei (dvs fra venstre mot høyre). Du vil på andre omgang begynne på venstre side av diagram A.5: strikke 1 masker rett (vrang fra retten) og videre strikke 3 masker vrang, så strikkes A.4 freme til midten hvor det strikkes A.3 osv. God fornøyelse

When you say " 1 edge sts in garter st " do you mean a knit stitch ? Or an alternate knit right side/ purl wrong side ?

DROPS Design 25.07.2018 kl. 08:40:

Dear Virginie, when you work edge sts in garter st, you will K these sts both from RS and from WS - see video below. Happy knitting!

Alexandra Van Rosmalen 01.03.2018 - 13:33:

Deze omslagdoek ziet er prachtig uit en ik wil hem dus gaan breien, maar ik ben in verwarring want ik zie vier kleuren op het plaatje, maar ik zie maar drie kleuren genoemd bij de benodigdheden! Hoeveel gram van hoeveel kleuren wol heb ik nodig? Hartelijke groet, Alexandra

DROPS Design 04.03.2018 kl. 17:25:

Hoi Alexandra, Je hebt maar drie kleuren nodig omdat er steeds met twee draden gebreid wordt. Eerst brei je met 2 draden geel/groen, dan met 1 draad geel/groen en 1 draad donker olijfgroen, dan met 1 draad donker olijfgroen en 1 draad groen/turkoos en tot slot met 2 draden groen/turkoois. Dus door draden van verschillende kleuren te combineren creëer je extra kleuren.

Manon 04.02.2018 - 22:00:

Eindelijk begonnen. Twee rijen dubbele draad groen tussen tweede en derde streep voor mooiere overgang. Alleen. Vind hem toch erg breed en niet zo diep nog. Zou ik bij laatste streep de verkorte toeren achterwege kunnen laten en vier keer meerderen om de rij om zo wat meer richting driehoek weer te gaan of zou dat hele rare vorm geven? Groet manon

DROPS Design 07.02.2018 kl. 21:10:

Hoi Manon, Als je ineens stopt met de verkorte toeren komt er a.h.w. een 'knik' in de bovenrand. Een beter idee is (maar dat is achteraf) om over de hele lengte minder verkorte toeren te maken en ook de meerderingen over de hele omslagdoek te verdelen. Houd er wel rekening mee dat je met het aantal steken uitkomt met de ajourrand onderaan.

Manon 07.11.2017 - 14:10:

Hoi! Wat is het effect van de verkorte rijen op de vorm? wordt sjaal breder/smaller als ik die niet doe? Groet Manon

DROPS Design 08.11.2017 kl. 08:56:

Hoi Manon, De verkorte toeren zorgen ervoor dat de omslagdoek aan de bovenkant over de gehele breedte wat breder wordt, terwijl hij aan de onderkant de vorm van punt van een driehoek blijft houden.

Malene 15.04.2017 - 19:02:

Hei, etter at jeg har oppnådd 26 m på de forkortede pinnene 8 og 11. Skal jeg da fortsette med 26 m på de neste gjentakelsene av de samme pinnene?

DROPS Design 28.04.2017 kl. 08:16:

Hej Malene, Ja når du har nået 26 m i de forkortede pinne, så fortsætter du med forkortede pinne over disse 26 m til ferdig mål. God fornøjelse!

Anita W. Thon 05.02.2017 - 12:55:

Kan ikke legge in under spørsmål. Er nå kommet bra ned til kanten. Har klippet alle diagrammer ut og lagt ved siden av hverandre, men: Dig 1 og 2 passer ikke sammen. Hvis jeg legger A 2 maskene under linjen, passer resten, men vrangsiden kommer sammen med rettsiden og omvendt. skyver jeg A2 oppover, passer toppen ikke samme, men vrang og rettsiden. Hva er galt?

DROPS Design 09.02.2017 kl. 14:45:

Hej Anita. Der er lige mange pinne i A.1 som A.2. Der er 14 p op til "anden" gentagelse af hulmönstret paa A.1 (som er siden) og der er ogsaa 14 p op til "anden" gentagelse i A.2 og A.4, det samme gaelder for A.3 som strikkes i midten. Saa de burde ikke komme forskelligt paa r og vr.

Anita W. Thon 19.01.2017 - 14:53:

Hvorfor kan en under kommentarer ikke klage noe på mønsteroppsett uten å bli stoppet med ignorerende tekst. En kan også gi positive tips til andre til å klare mønsteret. Flytte teksten til skriveprogram og forstørre skriften til 18 eller 20. Kontrollere masketall og striper etter hver 5-12 rad. Etter noen cm kommer kommer mønsteret fram og det blir lettere og følge med. Ikke gi opp!!

Anita W. Thon 16.01.2017 - 17:01:

Dette trekantsjalet må det vil gå an og strikke på et enklere måte. Ingen hjelpestilling heller. Hvorfor oppgis ikke masketallet etter for eks. 12. , 18. osv. Omgang? at en vet det er riktig så langt. Det hele er ekstremt forvirrende. Omgangslinjene burde skilles med mellomrom. Har startet om og om igjen, og komme ikke videre. Her burde det opplyses på mønsteret, at sjalet er meget vanskelig å strikke.👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿

Angela 03.01.2017 - 09:16:

Hallo, im letzten Streifen würde ich den 2ten Umschlag (der verschränkt gestrickt wird) weglassen. Da in jeder 2ten Reihe zugenommen wird, wie in der Mitte , sonst geht es zu weit auseinander, es sieht nicht aus.
