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

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 with blue.

STRIPE 1 (stocking 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 TENSION 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 - READ MEASUREMENTS.

STRIPE 2 (lace pattern):

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.

Dekepper 02.06.2017 - 17:32:

Bonjour, j'ai déjà fait le motif 6a ,2 fois en hauteur, j'ai bien diminué au même endroit et je me retrouve déjà avec 50 mailles dans chaque motifs il faut que je fasse encore une foi en hauteur ,je vais me retrouver avec plus de 54 mailles que dois je faire ?

DROPS Design 06.06.2017 kl. 08:27:

Bonjour Mme Dekepper, quand on tricote 1 fois A.6a, on augmente 4 m au total, vous devez ainsi avoir dans chacun des 5 premiers motifs: 42 m (après A.5b) + (3 fois A.6a en hauteur x 4 augm) = 42+ 12 = 54 m. Bon tricot!

Dekepper 28.04.2017 - 13:00:

Je comprend bien qu' il faut prendre les jetés sur l'endroit au rang 36, mais au rang 35 il y bien des jetés qu'il faut prendre normal et 1 torse?

DROPS Design 28.04.2017 kl. 13:53:

Bonjour Mme Dekepper, effectivement, un des 3 jetés sera tricoté torse, autant pour moi, les jetés (= ovale simple) se tricotent normalement et les jetés (= ovale noir) se tricotent torse au rang suivant, donc sur ces rangs endroit sur l'envers, ils vont se tricoter torse à l'endroit. Bon tricot!

Dekepper 28.04.2017 - 11:23:

Bonjour, pour le rang de mailles endroit sur l'envers doit on prendre les jetés sur l'endroit où sur l' envers ?

DROPS Design 28.04.2017 kl. 11:53:

Bonjour Mme Dekepper, à la fin de A.1, quand on tricote les 2 rangs à l'endroit sur l'envers, on tricote les jetés également à l'endroit (pas torse pour qu'ils forment des trous). Bon tricot!

Dekepper 21.04.2017 - 18:04:

Bonjour, pouvez vous m'aider après avoir fait mon premier motif A1a je me retrouve avec bien 117 mailles et pourtant la dernière mailles je l'ai tricoté en tant que maille lisière et étant donné que le 6eme motif on ne tricote pas la dernière maille je ne comprend plus!!!

DROPS Design 24.04.2017 kl. 08:42:

Bonjour Mme Dekepper, c'est tout à fait juste ainsi: 2 m lis point mousse, puis 5 x A.1 (= 19 m a dernier rang) puis 1 x A.1 (= 18 m au dernier rang), 2 m lis = 2+ 5x19 + 18 + 2 = 117 m. Bon tricot!

Dekepper 21.04.2017 - 10:25:

Bonjour, pour le premier motif A1.a je me retrouve bien avec 117 mailles en faisant bien à la fin de chaque rangs 1 jeté, 2 mailles lisières.Je comprend pas pour le 6ème motif =1 mailles en moins,car il faut quand même les deux mailles lisières .Pouvez vous m'aider?

DROPS Design 21.04.2017 kl. 10:58:

Bonjour Mme Dekepper, c'est exact, vous tricotez 5 x A.1 (= 2 m au 1er rang, et 19 m au dernier rang) mais au dernier (= 6ème) motif de A.1, vous ne tricotez pas la dernière maille (= 1 m au 1er rang et 18 m au dernier rang), soit: 19x5 + 18 + les m lis soit 2x2 m = 117 m. Bon tricot!
