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.

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

See diagrams A.1 to A.8. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.


The shawl is worked back and forth on circular needles and top down. Knit all rows.
Cast on 5 stitches with 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands) on circular needle size 5 mm. Work diagram A.1 over 2 stitches, 1 stitch in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above (= middle stitch) and A.2 over 2 stitches. When diagrams A.1 and A.2 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 21 stitches on row.

Work according to diagrams A.3 to A.6 as follows:
Work A.3 over 1 stitch, A.4 over 9 stitches, 1 stitch in garter stitch (= middle stitch), A.5 over 9 stitches and A.6 over 1 stitch. When diagrams A.3 to A.6 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 101 stitches on needle.

Work according to diagrams A.3 to A.8 as follows:
Work diagram A.3 over 1 stitch, repeat A.7 until 9 stitches remain before middle stitch (= 4 times in width), A.4 over 9 stitch, 1 stitch in garter stitch (= middle stitch), A.5 over 9 stitches, repeat A.8 until 1 stitch remains (= 4 times in width) and A.6 over 1 stitch. Continue to work according to diagrams like this, for every time diagrams are worked vertically, work 4 repetitions more of diagram A.7/A.8 on each side of shawl. Work like this until piece measures approx. 36 cm in knitting direction (approx. 51 cm along middle stitch, adjust so that diagram is finished at one of the rows marked with arrow in diagram A.3). Work 3 rows in garter stitch over all stitches. Now work flounce.

Cut and fasten the yarn with BabyAlpaca Silk. Use 2 strands Kid-Silk and knit 1 row from right side. Remove one of the strands, now work the rest of flounce with 1 strand. On next row (= wrong side) increase and purl. Increase by working each of the 2 strands from every stitch separately, i.e. 1 stitch with 2 strands becomes 2 stitches with 1 strand. On next row (= right side) work as follows: * knit 1, 1 yarn over *, repeat from *-* and finish with knit 1. Purl 1 row from wrong side and knit 1 row from right side. Cast off on next row by knitting from wrong side as follows to avoid a tight edge: * Cast off 1 stitch, make 1 yarn over, cast off yarn over as regular stitch *, repeat from *-* until all stitches have been cast off. Fasten off.


= knit from right side, knit from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over, knit yarn over on next row to make a hole
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch, knit 1 and pass slipped stitch over stitch worked
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 2 together and pass slipped stitch over stitches worked together

Goeiemiddag, Bedankt voor uw reactie. Ja dat is precies wat de uitleg zegt... maar als je op foto kijkt, komen de ruches niet aan de hals (bovenaan) maar wel aan de 2 zijkanten... dus er klopt iets niet... dus er moeten dan toch extra steken aan de zijkanten opgenomen worden, anders kom je der niet. Steken aan de hals moeten afgekant worden, denk ik. Mvg Ingrid

Goeieavond, driehoek is klaar - Ik neem aan dat deze steken mag afhechten na 3 nld ribbelsteek. Worden de steken voor de ruche opgenomen "uit" de meerderingen aan de zijkanten ? (Hoe ruche gebreid wordt, is duidelijk). Kan je eens nazien aub ? Bedankt. Mvg Ingrid

Dag Ingrid,

Als je de driehoek gebreid hebt, kan je niet af maar brei je de ruche over de steken die je op de naald hebt staan. Je breit eerst 1 naald met 2 draden Kid-Silk. Dan ga je verder met 1 draad Kid-Silk en je breit in dan in beide draden van elke steek van de vorige toer zodat het aantal steken zich verdubbelen.

Il est trop beau ce châle. Merci pour les explications. Très bon site et bonnes vacances à vous tous 😉👍

Bonjour Auriez vous une vidéo pour le commencement de ce châle ? Merci

DROPS Design 17.07.2017 kl. 08:32:

Bonjour Patricia, votre demande a bien été enregistrée, en attendant, tricotez A.1 et A.2 ainsi: A.1 = 1 m end, 1 jeté, 1 m end, puis 1 m end (= m centrale), et A.2 = 1 m end, 1 jeté, 1 m end. Au 2ème rang, tricotez: 1 m end, 1 jeté, 2 m end, puis la m centrale à l'end, et A.1 = 2 m end, 1 jeté, 1 m end. Continuez ainsi en augmentant avec 1 jeté sur l'endroit et sur l'envers comme le montre les diagrammes. Bon tricot!
