NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here.

Make 6 YOs on hook, insert hook in 6th ch on beg of previous row, make 1 YO and pull yarn through this st, * 1 YO on hook, pull yarn through the next 2 sts on hook *, repeat from *-* 6 more times = 1 loop on hook.

See diagrams A.1 to A.6.

Worked back and forth, top down.

Beg with hook size 5 mm and Big Delight and work pattern according to diagram A.1. When A.1 has been worked vertically, piece measures approx. 8.5 cm measured along inc in the middle of shawl. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Now continue from row with arrow in diagram A.2-A.6 as follows: Work A.2 (= inc in the side), A.3, work A.4 (= inc in the middle), work A.5 and finish with A.6 (= inc in the side).
When diagram has been worked vertically, repeat repetitions from row with arrow, i.e. there are more and more repetitions of A.3 and A.5 between inc in the middle and in the sides.
Continue pattern like this until piece measures approx. 72 cm measured along inc in the middle of shawl - adjust so that last row worked is a row with dtr groups with 7 dtr.
Fasten off.

Hi sorry for posting again but when I do 6 double trebles in the ring it does not look right. I don't understand what you mean when you said around the 4 chain in both sides. Is there any chance you could post a video of this please?

DROPS Design 11.03.2019 kl. 11:42:

Dear Mrs Vernerova, it looks like the first row in A.1, reading from the left towards theh right = 6 chains, 1 ch, 1 double treble around the chain stitch ring, 4 chains, 1 double treble around the chain stitch ring, 2 chains, 1 double treble around the chain stitch rinb, 4 chains, 1 double treble around the chain stitch ring, 1 chain, 1 six double treble (see at the beg of the pattern). Turn and work row 2 from the right towards the left. Happy crocheting!

Hi I can't figure out the last 6 double trebles in A1 in the first row. I don't know where to insert the hook. If I insert into the ring the whole thing looks weird and I'm sure it's not meant to be like that. Is there any chance of a video for the first row? Otherwise j will never be able to do this shawl and I love it. Thank you

DROPS Design 10.03.2019 kl. 22:16:

Dear Zuzana, the 6 double treble should be done around the 4 chain stitch crocheted in both side. I hope this helps. Happy Crafting!

Bonjour, pouvez vous me dire s'il faut faire le diagramme A2 dans sa globalité et ensuite passer au A3 dans sa globalité aussi et ainsi de suite ou bien si les diagrammes sont à coller les uns aux autres. Je ne comprends pas très bien. D'avance merci pour votre aide.

DROPS Design 04.05.2018 kl. 08:54:

Bonjour Sophie, il faut crocheter chaque rang des diagrammes l'un après l'autre, soit par ex: rang 1 de A.2, A.3, A.4, A.5 et A.6 sur l'endroit, puis au rang suivant sur l'envers: rang 2 de A.6, A.5, A.4, A.3 et A.2 et ainsi de suite. Bon crochet!

Redigering möjlig av placeringen av diagramdelarna så de är lika stora och ligger bredvid varandra i den ordning de ska virkas? Nu är det mycket svåravläst. Utskrift via er utskriftsoptimerade funktion lägger delarna på olika sidor och att försöka pussla ihop det själv i t ex word går inte då A1, A3 och A5 ligger som en gemensam bild och A4 och A6 i en bild. Tänker att fler skulle vara hjälpta av det.

Hej Sofia, vi skickar din önskan vidare, och hoppas vi kan göra det enklare framöver. Lycka till med den fina sjalen!

Anita Koole 08.06.2017 - 17:35:

Ik begrijp niet hoe ik verder moet als ik a1 heb gehaakt. De tekening van a2 laat dit niet zien en laat ook niet zien hoe ik aan de linkerkant daarna weer moet beginnen

DROPS Design 09.06.2017 kl. 08:50:

Hoi Anita, Je begint A.2 bij de pijl (Die staat rechts-onder in de tekening van A.2) A.2 begint dus met 6 lossen. (dan 2 lossen, een dubbel stokje en 2 lossen, waarna je verder gaat met dezelfde toer in A.3, A.4, A5 en A6 zoals aangegeven in de beschrijving) Veel haakplezier!

Kate 13.04.2017 - 10:56:

Hi! I'm a bit confused by the instructions. I've reached the end of the A.2 part and I thought I should continue from the row with arrow again, but then the A.3 part does not fit. Should I just repeat the top row of the diagram A.2 (and A.6) till the end?

DROPS Design 18.04.2017 kl. 08:41:

Dear Kate, when you repeat diagrams in height, work A.2 from arrow, then repeat A.3 to the middle ch-space, work A.4 in the middle ch-space on previous repeat of A.4, then repeat A.5 in width finishing with A.6 in the last st. Work each diagram from the row with the arrow so that diagrams match tog and to the previous rows. Happy crocheting!

Det står i symbolforklaringa at hver rad avsluttes med en6 dobbelt stav.... og i forklaringa i oppskriften forklares en 6 dobbeltstav....men overskriften sier firedobbelstav..... er det 6 dobbel som skal brukes?

DROPS Design 08.12.2016 kl. 13:26:

Hej Tulla. Det skal vaere en 6 dobbeltstav. Jeg skal sörge for at faa det rettet. Tak for meldingen!

Dobrý den, všimla jsem si změny v kreslených schematech - týká se téměř všech nově přidaných háčkovaných šátků - myslím jejich rozdělení do sekvencí, ve kterých se nejsem schopna orientovat ... ráda jsem šátky podle drops návodů háčkovala a změnu bohužel opravdu nevítám ...
