Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

See diagrams A.1 to A.6. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

Worked in 2 parts that are sewn together in the middle.

PART 1: Cast on somewhat loosely 81 stitches on circular needle size 5 mm with Brushed Alpaca Silk. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Work next row as follows from the right side: 4 edge stitches in garter stitch, A.1A (= 13 stitches), A.1B over the next 48 stitches (= 2 repetitions of 24 stitches), A.1C (= 12 stitches) and 4 edge stitches in garter stitch. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 69 stitches on row. Then work A.2 with 4 edge stitches in garter stitch in each side. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 63 stitches on needle and piece measures approx. 25 cm vertically. Work next row as follows from the right side: 4 edge stitches in garter stitch, A.3A (= 7 stitches), A.3B over the next 42 stitches (= 7 repetitions of 6 stitches), A.3C (= 6 stitches) and finish with 4 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue A.3 with 4 edge stitches in garter stitch in each side until piece measures approx. 89 cm from cast-on edge – finish after 1st or 5th row in diagram. Knit 1 row from wrong side and LOOSELY cast off by knitting from right side - NOTE: It is important to avoid a tight cast-off edge - to avoid this make 1 yarn-over after approx. every 7th stitch WHILE casting off (cast off yarn-overs as stitches).
Knit another part the same way. Sew the two parts in the middle - sew inside cast-off edge so that there are 2 ridges in the middle of scarf.


= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= knit from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn-over
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 2 stitches together, pass slipped stitch over stitches worked together
= BOBBLE: Knit 1 in front and back loop of same stitch until there are 4 stitches, turn and purl 1 row from wrong side over these 4 stitches, turn and knit 1 row from right side. Use left needle and pass second stitch on right needle over first stitch, pass third stitch over first stitch and then fourth stitch over first stitch (= 1 stitch remains)

Le schéma A1A-A1B-A1C fonctionne j'usquau rangs 10 mais au rang 11 ca ne fonctionne pas j'aimerais avoir une explication détaillé SVP merci !!!

DROPS Design 09.05.2019 kl. 10:17:

Bonjour Mme Ethier, au 11ème rang, on diminue 1 m dans A.1A (= 11 m), 2 m dans chaque A.1B (= 22 m chaque A.1B) et 1 m dans A.1C (= 11 m), puis à l'avant-dernier rang, on diminue 1 m dans A.1A (= 11 m), 2 m dans chaque A.1B (= 20 m chacun) et 1 m dans A.1C, on a ainsi: 4 m point mousse + 11 + 20x2 + 10 + 4 = 69 m. Bon tricot!

Zijn de 69 steken aan het eind A1 inclusief 8 kantsteken? en dan een vraag over de laatste toer overgang A1B A1C de beginsteken overlappen elkaar hoe fix ik dat en dan nog een vraag over overgang A1/A2 ik zie op de tekening A1 69 steken A2 61 steken wat doe ik met de 8 steken die over zijn of zijn dat de kantsteken A1 dank voor uw reactie (wellicht is dit patroon te moeilijk voor mij als beginneling.....) groetJS

Dag Joyce,

Ja, de 69 steken zijn alle steken die je op dat moment op de naald hebt. Over een na laatste toer van A.1b heb je minder steken over A.1 b, namelijk 22 steken. A.1b begint steeds met 2 samenbreien (althans op een toer met samenbreien en omslagen). En de 69 steken zijn de 61 steken van A.2 plus 4 kantsteken aan beide kanten.

I början på beskrivningen står; sticka 4 RÄTSTICKNING. Vad menas med det, 4 varv eller? Sedan står det ; Nästa v stickas så här från rätsidan: 4 kantmaskor osv. Enligt diagrammet börjas det med 2 v; rätm från räts o avigm från avigsidan (ska inte dessa stickas först?).

DROPS Design 11.10.2018 kl. 10:48:

Hei Anette. Det stemmer: de 4 første omgangene skal strikkes i rettstrikning - vi skal få rettet så dette blir tydeligere i oppskriften. Videre strikker du etter diagrammene som anvist, de omgangene som er kun rettstrikning strikkes som rettstrikning. Men de 4 ytterste maskene i hver side strikkes i rettstrikkning hele veien. God fornøyelse.

Dzień dobry, nie wiem jak wykonać - 4 oczka brzegowe ściegiem francuskim. Czy 4 razy mam przerobić oczko brzegowe i dopiero wtedy zacząć przerabiać właściwy rząd? Z góry dziękuję za odpowiedź Pozdrawiam serdecznie Joanna

DROPS Design 12.03.2018 kl. 15:21:

Witaj Joanno! 4 pierwsze i 4 ostatnie oczka w każdym rzędzie są zawsze wykonywane na prawo (zawsze przerabiamy tam 4 o.p.), schematy (np. A.1, A.2..., zgodnie z tym co jest w opisie) znajdują się między tymi oczkami - jak w ramie. Powodzenia!

Trevet 02.09.2017 - 18:10:

Bonjour je ne comprends pas ce que je dois faire au début du 8eme rang et 12eme rang de A1. est ce que ce sont des diminutions ? dois je faire mes 4 mailles mousse + 2 diminutions a droite+ gauche du 7 et 12 eme rang ? merci

DROPS Design 04.09.2017 kl. 10:10:

Bonjour Mme Trevet, les diminutions se font aux rangs 7 et 11, aux rangs 8 et 12 votre nombre de mailles aura automatiquement diminué car vous avez moins de jetés que de diminutions au rangs 7 et 11. Bon tricot!

Sq1717 15.05.2017 - 14:42:

Welche Länge sollten die Stricknadeln idealerweise haben? Und wäre eine Rundnadel besser?

DROPS Design 15.05.2017 kl. 14:53:

Liebe Sq1717, die Länge ist nicht so wichtig, gerne können Sie auch mit einer Rundnadel hier stricken. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
