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

* 2 rows with pink dream, 2 rows with picnic*, repeat from *-* to finished length.

The outermost stitch along the right-side edge of the shawl (at the beginning of rows from the right side and at the end of rows from the wrong side) is worked with 1 strand of each color (= 2 strands) to finished length.

The piece is worked back and forth on the needle and is worked from one side to the other. The whole shawl is worked in RIDGES and STRIPES – see description above.
Cast on 6 stitches with needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 and pink dream. Insert 1 marker thread after the first 2 stitches on the needle (seen from the right side) and work as follows READ KNITTING TIP and allow the marker thread to follow upwards on the inside of the picot edge:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit.
ROW 3 (= right side): Change color and knit until there are 4 stitches left on the needle, knit 2 together, make 2 yarn overs and then knit 2 stitches in each of the last 2 stitches on the needle (work 2 stitches in the same stitch by knitting both front and back of the same stitch) = 2 stitches increased.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Slip the first stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over, knit 1, pass the rearmost stitch on the right needle over the first stitch (= 2 stitches decreased), knit 1, drop one of the yarn overs, knit the other yarn over and then knit to the end of the needle. Change color on the next row.
Repeat rows 1 to 4.

AT THE SAME TIME on row 9 increase 1 stitch by making a yarn over just before the marker thread. On the next row, knit the yarn over so that there is a hole. Repeat this increase every 6th row upwards – always increase before the marker thread so that there are more and more garter stitches on the right side of the marker thread (seen from the right side). When there is a total of 54 stitches before the marker thread (i.e. in total 58-60 stitches dependent on the picot edge), the piece measures approx. 70 cm / 27½'' along the right-side edge.
Work 8 rows without increases, but on the 5th row, work as follows before the marker thread: Knit 2 together, make 1 yarn over – this is done to maintain the row of holes along the edge even though the increases are not continuing. On the next row from the right side after the 8 rows without increases, decrease 1 stitch before the marker thread as follows: Start 3 stitches before the marker thread, knit 3 together and make 1 yarn over. Repeat the decrease every 6th row until there are only 2 stitches left before the marker thread (seen from the right side). Work 8 rows as before without decreases and then bind off all stitches. The shawl measures approx. 143 cm / 56'' from corner to corner.

Goedenavond, ik wil deze sjaal graag breien maar voordat ik de wol aanschaf heb ik volgende vragen: Is deze wol Drops Fabel warm genoeg voor een wintersjaal en kan ik hem groter maken door eenvoudig meer steken op te zetten of moet ik dan het patroon aanpassen?

Dag Linda,

Of fabel warm genoeg voor jou is, is natuurlijk een beetje persoonlijk. Zelf vind ik fabel wel warm genoeg, maar dan zou ik hem inderdaad wel (veel) groter maken. Je hoeft daarvoor niet meer steken op te zetten, maar je gaat langer door met meerderen, zodat je een langere sjaal krijgt. Je kan er (tegelijkertijd) ook voor kiezen om vaker te meerderen, zodat je een bredere sjaal krijgt.

Je kan ook nog even kijken bij de andere sjaals in fabel, er is ook genoeg keuze voor wintersjaals.

Comment faire les picots lorsque le châle est terminé

DROPS Design 02.05.2018 kl. 10:04:

Bonjour Mme Couturier, la bordure picot se tricote le long du châle, en même temps. Si vous voulez la tricoter séparément, vous pouvez monter 5 mailles par ex. et tricotez la bordure picot puis la coudre le long du châle. Bon tricot!
