INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 stitch at the end of every purl section (after last purl stitch) by picking up loop between 2 stitches in transition between knit and purl. Purl loop twisted to avoid holes. On next increase, increase after every knit stitch and purl loop twisted

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.
----------------------------------------------------------

BLANKET:
Cast on 287 stitches on circular needle size 3 mm with Alpaca. Purl 1 row from wrong side. On next row from right side work rib as follows: 3 stitches in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above - * knit 1, purl 3 *, repeat from *-* until 4 stitches remain on needle, finish with knit 1 and 3 stitches in garter stitch.
When piece measures 2 cm, decrease all 3 purl (seen from right side) to 2 purl = 217 stitches.
When piece measures 3 cm, decrease every other 2 purl to 1 purl = 182 stitches.
When piece measures 4 cm, decrease the remaining 2 purl to 1 purl = 147 stitches.
When rib measures 6 cm - adjust so that next row is worked from wrong side, switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm.
Work next row as follows from right side: 3 stitches in garter stitch, work A.1 over the next 140 stitches (= 14 repetitions of 10 stitches), 1 stitch in stocking stitch and finish with 3 stitches in garter stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! 
When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.2 over A.1. When piece measures 75 cm (= 6 cm rib, 1 repetition of A.1 and approx. 14 repetitions of A.2 vertically), work A.1 over A.2. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, insert 1 marker in piece. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Switch to circular needle size 3 mm.
On next row from right side work rib as follows: 3 stitches in garter stitch, * knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-* until 4 stitches remain on needle, finish with knit 1 and 3 stitches in garter stitch.
When piece measures 2 cm, increase every other 1 purl to 2 purl - READ INCREASE TIP = 182 stitches.
When piece measures 3 cm, increase the remaining 1 purl to 2 purl = 217 stitches.
When piece measures 4 cm, increase all 2 purl to 3 purl = 287 stitches.
When piece measures 6 cm, purl 1 row from wrong side. Cast off. Piece measures approx. 87 cm in total.

Jeg er lige gået igang med tæppet - jeg synes overhovedet ikke kanten ligner rib (er på række 3) skal jeg på alle pinde strikke 1 R, 3 vr - eller skal jeg gøre det omvendt på vrangsider - altså 1 vr, 3 R ?

Hei Gitte. Ja, når du strikker fra vrangen må du strikke motsatt. Om du tenker at du hele tiden skal strikke rett over rett, og vrang over vrang vil varngborden bli riktig (med unntak av 3 masker retstrikk i hver side). God fornøyelse.

Liebes Team, meine generelle Frage: lese ich die Diagramme immer von rechts nach links (stricke also hier Hinreihe: 1 Ma re, 1 U, 5 Ma re, 1 Ma wie zum Rechtsstricken abheben, 1 Masche rechts, die abgehobene Masche überziehen und in der Rückreihe dann li Ma?

DROPS Design 13.06.2018 kl. 08:16:

Liebe Sabine, die Diagramme werden von den unteren rechten Ecke gelesen, wenn Sie in Hin- und Rück- Reihen stricken lesen Sie die Hinreichen von rechts nach links und die Rückreihen von links nach rechts. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
