Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. 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.
The scarf will be soaked and stretched to size afterwards. The knitting gauge is therefore not that important, but to get a sense of whether you are knitting to loose/hard work a test in stockinette stitch on needle size 3 mm / US 2.5. The test should give approx. 24 stitches and 32 rows = 10 cm / 4'' in width and 10 cm / 4'' vertically.

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

When using another yarn from yarn group A, there is no need to stretch to measurements, but place it gently out in shape and leave to dry. Repeat the process when the scarf has been washed.

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

PART 1: Cast on 116 stitches on 2 circular needles size 3 mm / US 2.5 with Lace. Pull out one circular needle (cast-on is done like this to avoid a tight cast-on edge). Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Work next row as follows from the right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, work A.1 over the next 110 stitches (= 5 repetitions of 22 stitches), finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue pattern like this. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 86 stitches on row.
* Work next row as follows from right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, work A.2 over the next 80 stitches (= 5 repetitions of 16 stitches), finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue pattern like this. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.3 the same way. When A.3 has been worked 2 times vertically, work A.4 the same way *. After A.4 repeat from *-* 3 more times (= 4 repetitions in total) but finish last repetition after row marked with arrow in diagram. Work 2 ridges in garter stitch, slip stitches on 1 stitch holder or LOOSELY bind off by knitting from right side.

PART 2: Work as part 1.

Sew the two part tog in the middle with grafting/kitchener stitches (if stitches have been bind off sew together inside bind-off edge).

Place the scarf in lukewarm water until it is soaking wet. Carefully squeeze out the water - do not twist. Roll the scarf in a towel and squeeze to remove more water - the scarf will now only be moist. Place the scarf on a carpet or mattress - carefully stretch it out to size and fasten it with pins. Leave to dry. Repeat the process when the piece has been washed. NOTE: If another yarn in yarn group A has been used - READ SHAPING!


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= no stitch, skip this square
= between 2 stitches make 2 yarn-over on needle, on next row purl one yarn-over and drop the other yarn-over off the needle (= hole)
= between 2 stitches make 3 yarn-over on needle, on next row purl one yarn over, purl the second yarn-over twisted and drop the third yarn-over off the needle (= hole)
= BOBBLE: Knit 1, 1 yarn-over, knit 1, 1 yarn-over, knit 1 in same stitch (= 5 stitches), turn piece. Work 4 rows in stocking stitch over these 5 stitches Then pass second stitch on right needle over first stitch, pass third stitch over first stitch, pass fourth stitch over first stitch and pass fifth stitch over first stitch (= 1 stitch remains).
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked

Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas de quel montage de mailles il s'agit "Monter 116 mailles avec 2 aiguilles circulaires 3 en Lace. Retirer délicatement une des aiguilles circulaires". Pourriez-vous m'apporter des précisions SVP ? D'avance, je vous en remercie.

Bonjour Christiane, la vidéo ci-dessous montre comment monter les mailles sur 2 aiguilles. Avec une aiguille circulaire, on procède de la même façon avec les 2 extrémités de l'aiguille. Bon tricot!

Der Musterbeginn A1 mit Abnahme von 30 M nach dem Bündchen ist mir nicht schlüssig. Soll der Schal dadurch Wellen schlagen?

Liebe Frau Gruber, in jedem A.1 werden 2 Maschen bei der 7., 9. und 11. Reihe abgenommen, dh bei der letzte Reihe in A.1 bleiben 16 M = 5 x 6 Abnahmen in jedem Rapport = 30 Abnahme nach A.1. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Bonjour, je commence le modèle sea hug 177-30 sur le diagramme A.1 il y a des cases noires qui sont indiquées "pas de maille, sauter cette case" je ne comprends pas bien car des mailles il y en a !!! : faut-il passer les mailles sans les tricoler ?? merci pour vos explications

DROPS Design 04.12.2017 kl. 09:14:

Bonjour Mme Le Boedec, au rang 7 de A.1, vous avez diminué 2 mailles, au rang suivant, il restera 2 m en moins, ces mailles diminuées sont marquées par une case noire. Ainsi, au dernier rang de A.1, vous avez diminué 6 m au total, et on retrouve ces 6 cases noires = 6 diminutions. Bon tricot!

Hallo liebes Drops Team, ich habe gerade den ersten Teil des Schals gestrickt. Nun haenge ich aber an der Fertigstellung. Die beiden Teile sollen am Ende ja zusammen genaeht und dann gespannt werden. Aber waere eine Naht (wie auch immer gearbeitet) fuer das Spannen nicht zu unelastisch? Und wuerde es mehr Sinn ergeben, beide Teile separat zu spannen und danach zusammen zu naehen? Vielen Dank fuer Ihre Antwort

DROPS Design 22.11.2017 kl. 09:07:

Liebe Marlen, so können Sie auch es machen. Sonnst passen Sie mal nur auf, daß die Maschen genug locker zusammengenäht sind (entweder im Maschenstich oder mit einer Naht). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Marie Laure 05.06.2017 - 16:17:

Bonjour! J'ai du mal à comprendre les indications entre * et *: Après A1 et A2 faut-il tricoter A3 deux fois en hauteur puis A4 deux fois en hauteur également? Merci.

DROPS Design 05.06.2017 kl. 18:56:

Bonjour Marie Laure. Au debut vous faites une fois A.1. Ensuite, vous faites la partie (toute la sequence) a repeter 4 fois au total: A.2 une fois en hauteur, A.3 deux fois en hauteur et A.4 une fois en hauteur. Bon tricot!
