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.

MEASUREMENTS
All measurements given in pattern are measured at the longest.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.6. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.
When diagram A.6 and A.1b are repeated, there are more and more sts between YO and dec (dec = slip 2 sts as if to K, K 1, pass the 2 slipped sts over) than shown in diagram, note that the dec will repeat vertically over themselves until finished measurements.
----------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
Worked top down, back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts. Cast on 5 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with blue.

STRIPE 1 (stockinette st):
ROW 1 (= WS): * K 1, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* until 1 st remains, K 1 = 9 sts.
ROW 2 (= RS): K all sts.
ROW 3 (= WS): K 2, * 1 YO, K 1 *, repeat from *-* 6 times in total, finish with K 1 = 15 sts.

Then work pattern as follows, beg from RS: Work 2 edge sts in GARTER ST – see explanation above, repeat A.1a 6 times in total but on last repetition do not work last st in diagram (i.e. last repetition = 1 st), finish with 2 edge sts in garter st. Continue pattern like this. Work edge sts in garter st until finished measurements. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When A.1a has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 117 sts on needle (= 19 sts in each of the first 5 repetitions of A.1a and 18 sts in the last repetition). Piece measures approx. 12 cm / 4¾'' - READ MEASUREMENTS.

STRIPE 2 (lace pattern):
Switch color to petrol. Work A.1b over A.1a.

Jo, såg det nu! 😅

Helena Blom 26.07.2019 - 20:16:

Hej! Jag hittar inte diagram A4?

DROPS Design 01.08.2019 kl. 15:36:

Hej Helena, A.4 hittar du till vänster om A.2 och A.3. Lycka till :)

Claire Crespin 16.02.2019 - 12:14:

Bonjour, deuxième question: ensuite, vous dites: "au 1er rang de A.6b répartir 4 diminutions de chaque côté des diminutions de chaque A.6b (= 8 diminutions dans chaque A.6b = 48 diminutions au total sur le châle) " faut-il alors tricoter deux mailles ensemble? Merci Claire

DROPS Design 18.02.2019 kl. 09:17:

Bonjour Mme Crespin, tout à fait, on va diminuer en tricotant 2 m ens à l'end le nombre de fois requis. Bon tricot!

Claire Crespin 16.02.2019 - 12:14:

Bonjour, pour la 3e rayure vous dites: "tricoter et augmenter 6 fois au total comme dans A.6a" de quelles augmentations parle-vous? s'agit-il des jetés du début du motif ou faut-il ajouter ces augmentations entre les motifs? Merci pour votre aide! Claire

DROPS Design 18.02.2019 kl. 09:14:

Bonjour Mme Crespin, vous tricotez les 5 premiers motifs de A.6a en augmentant comme indiqué dans le diagramme, et au dernier motif (au 6ème), vous tricotez le diagramme sans la dernière maille sur l'endroit. On va augmenter de la même façon dans chaque A.6, mais on a toujours 1 m en moins dans le dernier (pour que les côtés du châle soient symétriques). Bon tricot!

Delphine 23.01.2019 - 23:09:

Bonjour quelle erreur ai-je pu faire? je n'ai que 5 figures qui se répètent et pas six à la première rayure. il me semble que c'est au rang 11 que je passe de 6 à 5 figures. y a t'il des augmentations à faire en plus des jetés? merci

DROPS Design 24.01.2019 kl. 10:01:

Bonjour Delphine, au début du châle, quand vous avez 15 m, vous répétez 6 x A.1a ainsi: 2 m point mousse, 5 x A.1a comme dans le diagramme (= 5 x 2 m au 1er rang), 1 x A.1a en omettant la dernière maille (= 1 x 1 m au 1er rang) et 2 m point mousse. Vous avez ainsi bien vos 6 motifs en largeur, le dernier (sur l'endroit) se tricote sans la dernière maille tout du long pour que le châle soit symétrique. Bon tricot!

Ana López 08.01.2018 - 18:38:

Beschreibung Stricken 2. Streifen ist nicht korrekt. Wenn ich 117 Maschen habe, kann ich stricken: 2 Re kraus, einmal A.2-A.4 (mit A.3 doppelt)= 19 Maschen, plus 5 mal wiederholen, dann bin ich schon bei 115 Maschen, dann noch die 2 Randmaschen, also die Beschreibung passt nicht....

DROPS Design 09.01.2018 kl. 09:59:

Liebe Frau López, mit 117 M haben Sie genügend Maschen um so zu stricken:2 M kraus rechts (A.2, 2xA.3, A.4)x 5 = 19 M x 5 = 95 M, (A.2, A.3x2, A.4 über nur 2 M) = 18 M, 2 M kraus rechts = 2 + 95 + 18 + 2 = 117 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Theo 23.08.2017 - 20:07:

Goedendag, ik heb de eerste streep gebreid. 117 steken over. Nu moet ik 1b breien maar begrijp niet goed wat er wordt bedoeld met dat er neer steken over zijn en dat die weer geminderd moeten worden. Waar moet ik ze exact minderen? Ik hoop op een spoedig antwoord :-)

DROPS Design 28.08.2017 kl. 12:23:

Hallo Theo, Steeds bij het wisselen van kleur brei je A.1b. Bij streep 2 is de uitleg mbt dat er meer steken zijn nog niet van toepassing maar bij de strepen die erop volgen wel. Het gaat er om dat de minderingen in A.1b steeds boven elkaar komen en die minderingen liggen steeds verder uit elkaar. Het wordt waarschijnlijk wel duidelijk tijdens het breien.

Daisy Van De Peppel 16.08.2017 - 23:24:

Hallo, ik ben nu 3 keer overnieuw begonnen met het patroon maar kom maar niet na a1 op 117 steken uit. Ik begin bij elke rij met 2 kansteken, brei de herhalingen en de laatste maak ik 1 steek van (dan heb ik erna 3 kantsteken). Klopt dit?

DROPS Design 03.11.2017 kl. 11:06:

Hallo Daisy, Op de laatste toer van A.1 heeft A.1 19 steken. Als je A.1 6 keer herhaalt kom je op 114 steken, maar bij de laatste herhaling van A.1 vervalt de laatste steek van A.1. Dus kom je op 113 Steken. Daarnaast brei je aan elke zijkant, dus aan het begin en einde, 2 kantsten. Daarmee kom je op een totaal van 117 steken.

Vera 14.08.2017 - 11:22:

Liebes Drops-Team, ich habe beim 3. Streifen schon nach 1x Muster A6a in die Höhe stricken eine Maschenzahl von 54 (bzw. 53) in jedem Rapport. Wie soll das Muster weitergeführt werden, um nicht noch mehr Maschen zu bekommen? Oder muss man eigentlich direkt jedes Hin-und Rückreihenpaar (2 Reihen) dreimal stricken? Danke!!

DROPS Design 28.08.2017 kl. 11:29:

Liebe Vera, es werden 4 M in A.6a zugenommen - nach A.5b haben Sie 42 M in jedem der ersten 5 Rapporte + 4 M zugenommen x 3 Rapporte A.6a = 42 + (4x3) = 54 M. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Daisy 27.07.2017 - 20:13:

Goedendag, ik zie overal staan dat je op de laatste herhaling de laatste steek niet breit. Geldt dit dan voor elke toer van het patroon of alleen de eerste? En is dit dan een steek afhalen?

DROPS Design 30.07.2017 kl. 20:56:

Hoi Daisy, Dit geldt voor elke toer in het patroon, en alleen voor de laatste herhaling in de breedte. Je hoeft deze steek klaar bent met de 6 herhalingen van A.1 in de breedte, heb je 2 steken over op de naald voor de kantsteken in ribbelsteek.
