RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1.
----------------------------------------------------------

PILLOW:
Is worked in 2 similar parts which are sewn together at the end.
The piece is worked in the round in a circle on double pointed needles. Change to circular needle when the number of stitches is sufficient.

Cast on 8 stitches with 2 strands Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 3 strands) and divide them on 4 double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10 (= 2 stitches on each needle). Continue with 1 strand of each quality (= 2 strands). Work pattern according to diagram A.1 (= 8 repeats of A.1 on the round). When the first 21 rounds of A.1 have been completed, move the start of the round 1 stitch to the left, first on every 2nd round, then on every 4th round – in other words, the start of the round is always just before the first yarn over in the diagram so that it is as invisible as possible. The start of the round will eventually be in the middle of the first repeat of A.1. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When A.1 has been completed once in height, there are 208 stitches on the round. The piece measures approx. 34 cm / 13½'' in diameter.
Insert 8 marker threads in the piece, insert the 1st marker thread in the 1st stitch on the round, then insert 7 marker threads with 25 stitches between them, the marker threads are directly over the points of each leaf. Work GARTER STITCH – see description above, AT THE SAME TIME on the first round, increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker threads. Increase with 1 yarn over on each side of the stitch with the marker thread – on the next round purl the yarn overs to leave holes = 16 stitches increased per round. Repeat the increases every 2nd round until the piece measures 40 cm / 15 3/4'' – or to desired measurement. Bind off, use a needle and baste the hole in the middle of the pillow.
Work another part in the same way – making sure that you have increased the same number of stitches before binding off.

ASSEMBLY:
Lay the 2 parts together with wrong side to wrong side and sew through both layers in the outermost stitch. When you have sewn half the pillow cover place the pillow in the pillow cover before sewing the rest of the opening together. Cut and fasten the strand.

Diagram

All measurements in charts are in cm.

= knit
= purl
= 1 yarn over between 2 stitches. On the next round, purl the yarn overs to leave holes
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 stitches together, pass the slipped stitch over
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 stitch, pass the slipped stitch over
= knit 2 stitches together

Bonjour, merci pour votre réponse. Il n'est donc pas besoin de décaler tous les quatre tours ? (sinon le début du tour ne sera pas calé avec le premier jeté si j'ai bien compris ?) Cdt, Chris

Bonjour Chris, effectivement, décalez simplement le début des tours juste avant le 1er jeté de A.1 jusqu'à la fin pour que le début des tours soit le plus invisible possible. Bon tricot!

Bonjour, pour le passage : "décaler le début du tour d'1 maille à gauche, d'abord ts les 2 tours, , [...] milieu du 1er motif de A.1" Pour décaler le début, on fait passer la première maille sans tricoter (pr qu'elle soit tricotée en dernier) ? A partir de quel tour faut-il décaler ts les 4 tours au lieu de ts les 2 tours ?Je ne comprends pas quand il est dit que le début du tour se fait avant le premier jeté (par ex au tour 22 le jeté est au milieu de la ligne de A1)

DROPS Design 09.04.2018 kl. 16:13:

Bonjour Chris, je pense qu'il faut décaler ici à partir du rang 27 et non du rang 21 (une vérification va être faite), c'est-à-dire lorsque vous tricotez le haut de la feuille, au début du 27ème rang, glissez la 1ère md e A.1 sans la tricoter, puis commencez le tour ici au niveau du jeté: 1 jeté, 1 diminution, etc... ainsi, les tours commencent juste au niveau du jeté de A.1. Bon tricot!

Bonjour, il est spécifié qu\'il faut 75g de kid silk et 200g d\'alpaca. Or, d\'après l\'explication, il semble que tout le long du travail il faudra utiliser au moins un fil kid et et un fil alpaca ensemble. Comment se fait-il alors que les quantités de laine ne soient pas les mêmes ? Cordialement, C

DROPS Design 06.04.2018 kl. 08:17:

Bonjour Claire, ces 2 laines ont un poids/métrage différent, soit 25 g/env. 200 m pour Kid-Silk et 50 g/167 m pour Alpaca, soit 75 g kid-silk= 600 m et 200 g Alpaca = 668 m. Il faudra donc plus de pelotes Alpaca pour avoir une quantité suffisante pour le métrage nécessaire. Bon tricot!
