ROW 1 (= WS): K 1, * 1 YO, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1 *, repeat from *-* the rest of row and finish with K 1.
ROW 2 (= RS): K 2 and * pass the first over the last st worked, work YO and slipped st K tog and pass the second st over the last st worked, K 1 *, repeat from *-* the rest of row and bind off last st.

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas les instructions pour la bordure car il est dit le rang 1 sur l'envers alors que pour le châle c'est indiqué rang 1 endroit. Pourriez vous m'éclairer s'il vous plaît ? Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 05.03.2018 kl. 07:59:

Bonjour Alexandra, le dernier rang du châle doit être fait sur l'endroit pour que le 1er rang de la bordure soit sur l'envers. Bon tricot!

Train Virginie 20.01.2018 - 15:56:

Quelqu'un a t-il une photo du châle puisque la photo ne correspond pas? car je tiens à essayer de le tricoter comme il se voit sur la photo mise sur le site. merci de votre aide mme train

DROPS Design 22.01.2018 kl. 09:10:

Bonjour Mme Train, la photo correspond bien aux explications, n'hésitez pas à montrer votre ouvrage à votre magasin (même par mail) pour lui demander conseil - ou adressez-vous au forum DROPS. Bon tricot!

Virginie Train 14.01.2018 - 12:35:

Bonjour, le modèle photo correspond il bien aux explications car je ne vois que 2 coloris sur la photo et les explications ont l'air de correspondre à un modèle rayé? j'ai de la laine naturel et gris moyen pour réaliser comme sur la photo. Merci de me diriger vers les bonnes explications. mme train

DROPS Design 15.01.2018 kl. 09:36:

Bonjour Mme Train, Ce châle se tricote avec 3 couleurs: en gris perle jusqu'à 36 cm dans le sens du tricot, puis 4 rangs naturel et terminez en gris moyen. Bon tricot!

Camilla 30.12.2017 - 00:24:

Hei hei! Jeg er nå ferdig med de 36 cm i grå og 4 pinner i natur. Skal nå bytte til mellomgrå og her går det litt i stå for meg. Det er jo en farget kant på sjalet. Hvor og når strikkes det, eller når byttes det farge? Skjønner heller ikke helt når jeg skal felle som beskrevet under punktet "KANT OG FELLING" da arbeidet nå utvides til en trekant og det ikke skal bli smalere igjen. Eller?

DROPS Design 03.01.2018 kl. 14:25:

Hei Camilla. Du strikker med den mellomgrå fargen et stykke før du starter med å strikke KANT OG AVFELLING. For å forhindre at kanten skal krølle seg, strikkes det slik det er forklart i oppskriften. Det utvides seg ikke til en trekant, men det blir en løsere og tykkere avfellingskant. God Fornøyelse!

Levy 03.12.2017 - 22:34:

Bonjour Je ne comprends pas comment il faut mesurer les 36cm. "dans le sens du tricot" n'est pas clair pour moi non plus. Le chale se tricote de haut en bas ou de bas en haut? Merci d'avance pour vos reponses.

DROPS Design 04.12.2017 kl. 08:48:

Bonjour, il faut mesurer le long de la maille centrale (la ou se trouvens les trous au milieu). Bon tricot!

Schmidt Manuela 10.09.2017 - 19:04:

Wie kann das sein, dass das Tuch nur 50 cm hat??? Ganz am Anfang steht 85 cm???? Ich verstehe die Anleitung nicht. Was bedeutet 36 cm in Strickrichtung. Am Ende soll das nur cm haben????

DROPS Design 11.09.2017 kl. 09:12:

Liebe Frau Schmidt, die gesamte Höhe ist ca 85 cm in der Mitte, aber wenn man die 50 cm misst, soll man von Maschen auf der Nadeln bis zur Anschlagskante messen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Liane 30.04.2017 - 22:35:

Hallo, Waarom wordt er zoveel garen geadviseerd? Tevens is 36 cm in de brei richting veel te weinig, gelukkig heb ik voldoende ervaring en het patroon zelf aangepast. Drops Air garen is super om te breien en te dragen.

Jette 17.02.2017 - 20:57:

Hej Drops Når jeg har skiftet farve, efter den perlegrå, skal jeg så fortsætte de udtagninger jeg har foretaget det meste af tiden i perlegrå, som pind 5-10. Eller skal det være som pind 1-4? Opskriften er ikke helt klar for mig. Hilsen Jette

DROPS Design 21.02.2017 kl. 16:21:

Hej Jette. Ja, du fortsaetter med udtagning som pind 5-10. Du skal kun skifte farve

Janet Fennings 17.02.2017 - 09:22:

Yes my tension is fine. I think the confusion is the 36cm that I have to knit before changing colour. ' 36cm in knitting direction' isn't clear to me but whichever way I measure it, it's already more than 36 cms so I am carrying on knitting as it clearly is not big enough yet.

DROPS Design 17.02.2017 kl. 10:05:

Dear Mrs Fennings, you have to measure from cast on edge towards sts on needle in knitting direction, ie measure along the sts from the beg of work to sts on needle (not along the mid st). Happy knitting!

Janet Fennings 15.02.2017 - 21:44:

I am knitting the Drops shawl with stripes and I have nearly done the 36cms that the pattern says but I still have at least a ball and a half of the pearl grey wool. I bought 150g of pearl grey as the pattern says so why have I got so much left over?

DROPS Design 16.02.2017 kl. 09:37:

Dear Mrs Fennings, have you checked and kept the correct tension throughout, ie 14 sts x 17 rows in stocking st = 10 x10cm.
