The piece is worked back and forth top down.
Work 6 chain stitches with hook size 5 mm and 1 strand Baby Merino and 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk (= 2 strands) and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Continue to work according to diagram A.1. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
When A.1 is complete, repeat the last 2 rows (as shown in diagram A.X) continue with increases, in other words, every 2nd row increase 4 triple treble crochet and 3 chain stitches on each side of the piece.

Continue to work in this way until the piece measures approx. 73 cm measured in the middle of the piece, make sure to finish after the last row in A.X. Cut and fasten the strands.

Merci beaucoup pour ce joli modèle, j'ai remplacé la triple bride par une double, c'est moins joli .le prochain sera avec la triple

Jeg er ikke så vant til at hækle efter diagrammer og forstår ikke, hvordan jeg vender efter første række, når jeg kommer til de 2 x 3 luftmasker. Princippet om at hækle oppefra og starte med en luftmaskering samt udtagningerne senere er der styr på, men lige vendingen mellem stangmaskegrupperne og pikotrækkerne kniber det med.

DROPS Design 15.08.2018 kl. 09:32:

Hej Laila, du hækler bare de 6 luftmasker og vender arbejdet. Du ser først mønsteret efter at du har hæklet de første 3-4 rækker. God fornøjelse!

Ik begrijp het patroon niet helemaal: de 3e toer zijn 8 picotjes en 6 lossen, de 4e toer zijn weer drievoudig stokjes, maar waar begint de 4e toer mee? De drievoudige stokjes worden om de lossenboog gehaakt en de lossenboog wordt in de 2e toer gehaakt. Dus ik snap niet waar je mee begint na het picotje van toer 3.

Dag patricia, De toer met picootjes en vasten (dat is toer 2 in het telpatroon) eindig je met 3 lossen en 1 stokje om de lossenboog van de vorige toer. Dan begin je met 6 lossen en dan komt het eerste drievoudig stokje

Bonjour . Je ne comprend pas comment faire les augmentations .. de crocheter en plus 4 triples brides et 3 mailles en l air de chaque cote .

DROPS Design 02.08.2017 kl. 09:03:

Bonjour Mme Benavina, crochetez 1 groupe de triple-brides dans chaque arceau de 3 mailles en l'air = dans le 1er et dans le dernier arceau de 3 ml au début et à la fin de chaque rang et dans chaque arceau de 3 ml et crochetez 2 groupes de triple-brides dans l'arceau de 6 ml au milieu. Bon crochet!

Buona sera, Secondo voi posso fare questo scialle con solo il filato BELLE? grazie e saluti Laura

DROPS Design 24.07.2017 kl. 17:20:

Buonasera Laura, può lavorare questo modello con 2 capi di Belle, che appartiene al gruppo filati B, ottenendo la stessa consistenza di un capo del gruppo filati D, o anche 1 capo del gruppo A più 1 capo del gruppo C. Può vedere qui delle informazioni aggiuntive sui filati. Buon lavoro!

Please help me understand the crochet tension for this pattern. It says "DROPS CROCHET HOOK SIZE 5 MM – or the size needed so that the first 5 rows in A.1 measure approx. 12 cm along the middle chain-space." Does it means the bottom of the triangle is 12 cm where first 6chain ring in the middle ?

DROPS Design 29.03.2017 kl. 10:00:

Dear Mrs Ikuko, this means you should have 12 cm from the ring of chains (bottom of triangle as shown in diagram) vertically towards the tip (where you can read A.1 on diagram). Happy crocheting!
