Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.

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

See diagrams A.1 to A.6. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

The shawl is worked back and forth on circular needle. The shawl is worked in stocking stitch with 2 edge stitches in each side in GARTER STITCH – see description above, and lace pattern in the middle.

Cast on 5 stitches with circular needle size 5 mm and one strand Alpaca and one strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands) and work as follows:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit 2, 1 yarn over, purl 1, 1 yarn over, knit 2 = 7 stitches.
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit 2, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 2 = 11 stitches.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Knit 2, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, purl 5, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 2 = 15 stitches.

On the next row work as follows: A.1 (= 4 stitches), A.2 (= 7 stitches), A.3 (= 4 stitches). When A.1, A.2 and A.3 have been completed 1 time in height there are 63 stitches on the needle.

The next row is worked as follows – from the right side: A.4 (= 2 stitches), A.5 until there are 3 stitches left, A.6 (= 3 stitches). When A.4, A.5 and A.6 have been completed one time in height, there are 71 stitches on the row.

Continue working as follows:
A.1, 28 stitches stocking stitch, A.2, 28 stitches stocking stitch, A.3.

When A.1, A.2 and A.3 have been completed 1 time in height, there are 119 stitches on the row. Work A.4, A.5 and A.6 as before = 127 stitches on the row.

Continue with A.1, A.2 and A.3 and A.4, A.5 and A.6 upwards, each time A.1 to A.6 are completed one time in height, you will work 28 more stitches between A.1 and A.2 and A.2 and A.3.

Continue until you have worked a total of 6 repeats of A.1 to A.6 in height. There are now 351 stitches on the row.

Continue working with only 1 strand Kid- Silk, but you now work 1 stitch in each loop from the stitches on the needle (work 1 stitch in the loop with Kid-Silk and 1 stitch in the loop with Alpaca) so that the number of stitches doubles = 702 stitches. Knit 1 row from the right side and 1 row from the wrong side, then cast off with knit from the right side.


= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= purl from the right side, knit from the wrong side
= knit 2 stitches together
= slip 1 stitch, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over, on the next row, purl the yarn overs, there will be holes
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over, on the next row, purl the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.
= slip 1 stitch, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted together stitches
= knit 3 together

Bonjour ,j\'aimerai savoir si les diagrammes A4 A5 et A6 sont tous des rangs impairs et que les rangs pairs (qui ne sont pas mentionnés ) sont tricotés en jersey envers ce qui ferait en tout 16 rangs \r\nmerci d\'avance

DROPS Design 07.05.2018 kl. 08:34:

Bonjour Mme Jolivot, en fonction du rang pair de ces diagrammes, les mailles vont se tricoter soit à l'endroit sur l'envers (= cases avec une croix) soit à l'envers sur l'envers (= case blanche). Bon tricot!

Bonjour ,j'aimerai savoir si les diagrammes A4 A5 et A6 sont des vue de rangs impairs et que les rangs pairs on les tricotent en jersey envers ce qui ferait en tout 16 rangs , Merci de votre réponse

DROPS Design 07.05.2018 kl. 08:32:

Bonjour Mme Jolivot, tous les diagrammes montrent tous les rangs, ceux sur l'endroit aussi bien que ceux sur l'envers. Lisez les diagrammes en commençant en bas à droite et de droite à gauche sur l'endroit, sur l'envers lisez les diagrammes de gauche à droite. Bon tricot!

Per favore vorrei sapere come si inseriscono i i diagrammi 4, 5 e 6. Non riesco a capire come continuare... mi piace molto lo scialle ma senza un aiuto non posso continuare.. Grazie!

DROPS Design 22.11.2017 kl. 20:01:

Buonasera Rossella, alla fine dei diagrammi A.1, A.2 e A.3 ci sono 63 maglie sul ferro; poi prosegue lavorando il diagramma A.4 sulle prime 2 maglie, il diagramma A.5 fino a quando rimangono rimangono 3 maglie, e poi il diagramma A.6 sulle ultime 3 maglie. I diagrammi si leggono dal basso verso l'alto da destra verso sinistra sui ferri di andata e da sinistra a destra sui ferri di ritorno. Ogni quadratino corrisponde a una maglia. Buon lavoro!

Bonjour , j'ai terminé mon essai pour ce chale, par contre je ne comprend pas pourquoi le haut qui doit éventuellement etre droit, ne l'ai pas si je pouvais joindre une photo pour que vous puissiez comprendre. Cordialement zaza

DROPS Design 31.07.2017 kl. 09:54:

Bonjour Zaza, n'hésitez pas à montrer votre châle à votre magasin (en photo, par mail, si besoin), on pourra également vous renseigner et vous assister personnellement. Bon tricot!

Zaza 24.07.2017 - 12:09:

Re bonjour Désolée pour le dérangement Ca y est, j'ai enfin compris, honte à moi, les diagrammes se tricote A4 A5 A6, ensuite pour le rang suivant A6 A5 A4 et ce qui m'a induit en erreur, c'est que les rangs avec le jeté , le rang suivant je le rajoutait en plus, et que le jeté comme indiqué sur le diagramme est en maille endroit alors qu'il faut tricoter le jeté torsé à l'envers. Merci Cordialement zaza

Zaza 24.07.2017 - 10:11:

Bonjour, Votre réponse m'envoie comment lire les diagrammes, Je sais lire les diagrammes, mais ici sur les diagrammes A4 A5 A6, je ne tombe pas juste . J'avoue avoir réessayer plusieurs fois, Ma question était simple , est ce que c'est oui ou non. Merci de votre réponse Cordialement zaza

Zaza 23.07.2017 - 13:13:

Bonjour, C'est en regardant la vidéo du début du chale que je me suis rendu compte que je ne faisais pas dans le bon ordre les diagrammes. Ajouté à cette vidéo les explications des 8 rangs des diagrammes A4 A5 et A6 aurait été super. Ajouté aux explications que les diagrammes A1 A2 A3 devaient se tricoter en alternance : Rang 1 : A1 A2 A3 Rang 2 : A3 A2 A1 Rang 3 : A1 A2 A3..... Et pour les diagrammes A4 A5 A6 pareil. Cordialement zaza

Zaza 23.07.2017 - 13:04:

Bonjour, Est ce que les diagrammes A4 A5 et A6 se tricotent ainsi : Rang 1 : A4 A5 A6, Rang 2 : A6 A5 A4 Rang 3 : A4 A5 A6 Rang 4 : A6 A5 A4 ...... En alternance, car j'ai fais plusieurs essais et je ne trouve pas que c'est bon. Que ce soit dans ce sens ou dans l'autre Merci de votre réponse cordialement zaza
