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

See diagrams A.1 to A.11. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

Stitch markers are used to make it easy to see where repetitions in the middle begin and end. In this pattern 2 stitch markers are used, if you want to you can use stitch markers to separate every repetition. Move the markers upwards when working.

Work back and forth on circular needle, work top down.

Cast on 5 stitches with Alpaca on circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5. Work and increase as follows (first row is from right side):
ROW 1: Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit 1 = 9 stitches.
ROW 2: Knit all stitches and yarn overs.

Work according to diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3 as follows from right side:
Work 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above, A.1 over 1 stitch, A.2 over 4 stitches, A.3 over 2 stitches and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. When diagrams have been worked 1 time in height, there are 65 stitches on needle.

Work according to diagrams A.1 to A.7 as follows from right side:
Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.1 over 1 stitch, A.4 over 14 stitches, insert a STITCH MARKER - see explanation above, A.5 over 2 stitches, repeat A.6 over the next 28 stitches (= 2 times in width), A.7 over 2 stitches, insert another stitch marker, A.4 over 14 stitches, A.3 over 2 stitches and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.

When diagrams have been worked 1 time in height, there are 121 stitches on needle.
Continue to work according to diagrams with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side (for each repetition in height there is room for 1 more repetition of A.4 next to A.1 and A.3, and there is room for 2 more repetitions of A.6 between A.5 and A.7). Repeat diagrams in height as follows:
2nd time: A.1, A.4 x 2, A.5, A.6 x 4, A7, A.4 x 2, A.3 = 177 stitches.
3rd time: A.1, A.4 x 3, A.5, A.6 x 6, A.7, A.4 x 3, A.3 = 233 stitches.
4th time: A.1, A.4 x 4, A.5, A.6 x 8, A.7, A.4 x 4, A.3 = 289 stitches.
5th time: A.1, A.4 x 5, A.5, A.6 x 10, A.7, A.4 x 5, A.3 = 345 stitches.
6th time: A.1, A.4 x 6, A5, A.6 x 12, A.7, A.4 x 6, A.3 = 401 stitches.
NOTE: Now work diagrams 1 last time in height but on last row from right side do NOT make the 2 outermost yarn overs in diagrams A.5 and A.7 (see arrow in diagram).
7th time: A.1, A.4 x 7, A5, A.6 x 14, A.7, A.4 x 7, A.3 = 453 stitches.

Work according to diagrams A.8 to A.11 as follows from right side:
Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.8 over 3 stitches, A.9 over 12 stitches, repeat A.10 over the next 98 stitches (over A.4) 7 times in total, here is the stitch marker, continue to repeat A.10 over the next 224 stitches (over A.5, A.6 and A.7) 16 times in total, here is the other stitch marker, continue to repeat A.10 over the next 98 stitches (over all repetitions of A.4) 7 times in total, work A.9 over 12 stitches, work A.11 over 4 stitches and work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. NOTE: There are increases in all diagrams.
Work diagrams 1 time in height (last row is from right side and after this row there is 613 stitches and yarn overs on needle).

To avoid a tight bind-off edge bind off as follows on next row (= wrong side): bind off while purling and make a yarn over after every yarn over from previous row. Bind off yarn overs as stitches.


= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= purl from the right side, knit from the wrong side
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over from wrong side
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 2 stitches together, pass slipped stitch over stitches worked together

Merci pour ce modèle qui change des châles triangulaires et que je suis en train de terminer. C'est mon préféré.

Hallo zusammen! Ich stricke gerade dieses wunderschöne Tuch und habe die 6. Wdh bereits hinter mir. Nun komme ich nicht weiter. Es heißt, man solle bei der letzten Hinreihe im sechsten Durchgang die äußersten Umschläge nicht arbeiten. Befolge ich diesen Schritt, so habe ich bei der siebten Wiederholung nicht genug Maschen für das Muster übrig. Was muss ich tun???

Liebe Mai, nur bei der letzten Wiederholung bzw 7. werden die äußersten Umschläge nicht bearbeitet, nicht beim 6. Mal. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hejsa ! Der er en fejl i symbol forklaringen til mønsteret, hvilket giver ret store problemer når man prøver at strikke sjalet. Symbolet med de små sorte bjælker på tværs står forklaret som " vrang fra retsiden, ret fra vrangen" og dette tror jeg ikke er korrekt -det giver ihvertfald ret store problemer med maskeantallet og mønsteret som sådan : ( Håber I vil kigge på det og få det rettet da det er et meget smukt sjal : ) Med venlig hilsen , Pia Givskud : )

Enfin un nouveau vrai châle bien enveloppant pour mieux nous couvrir et nous emmitoufler dedans et ceci en toutes saisons. Pas toujours des modèles en simple triangle qui ne sont que décoration
