Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here.

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

Work entire shawl in stripes. Work 1 ridge with green/beige and 1 ridge olive/rust/plum *, repeat from *-* the entire piece. Do not cut the yarn between every stripe. Let the strands move up along the side of piece but make sure that they are not too tight.

Work piece back and forth on circular needle. The entire shawl is worked in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above.
Cast on 3 stitches on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with green/beige and knit 1 row. Now continue to work with increases, decreases and STRIPES - see explanation above. Work as follows:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit 1 = 5 stitches.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit all stitches and yarn overs. Switch to olive/rust/plum.
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit 2 together (loosely), knit until 1 stitch remains, 1 yarn over and knit 1.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Knit all stitches and yarn overs. Switch to green/beige.
ROW 5 (= right side): Knit until 2 stitches remain, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit 1. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
Then repeat ROWS 2 to 5 until there are approx. 221 stitches on needle or work to desired length (make sure to have enough yarn for bind-off).
To make an elastic edge, bind off as follows: * bind off 2 stitches, make 1 yarn over and bind off yarn over as regular stitch *, repeat from *-* until all stitches have been bind off. Cut the yarns and weave in ends.

Please can you suggest another colour combination from your Delight range? I've already made one version in colours shown, received by a very happy god-daughter - hard to tell which colours would work well together from online photos and can't afford to buy wrong colour pairing. Suggestions accompanied by picture of a little bit of knitting would be very gratefully received! Best wishes and Thank You to DROPS Design for a lovely free pattern - Mezry, Glasgow, Scotland

Dear Mezry, for any help choosing a colour, please contact your DROPS store even per mail or telephone, they will suggest you the best matching colors matching your wishes. Happy knitting!

Hola! El chal debe quedar simétrico? Esque me queda un lado más largo.... Gracias!

DROPS Design 01.12.2018 kl. 17:05:

Hola Neus. El chal se trabaja desde una esquina y tiene forma triangular. Llamamos a los lados cortos del chal A ( forman las filas en punto musgo) y B ( forman los puntos con los aumentos). Para que el chal quede simétrico A = B.

Do you have this pattern for crocheting? I don't know how to knit

DROPS Design 16.11.2018 kl. 09:24:

Dear Mrs Pike, we have only a knitted pattern to this shawl, you can try to learn knitting with our lessons or search a crocheted shawl. Happy knitting!

Marta Barbieri 06.10.2018 - 13:35:

This pattern seems to be for a small to medium, what do I need to add to make it for a large as I am a hefty lady and have already started knitting it but not half way yet. Many thanks

DROPS Design 07.10.2018 kl. 23:06:

Dear Marta, you can just repeat rows 2-5 until you reach the desired size. Happy Knitting!

Hej, jag har försökt kombinera två andra färger av Delight, men det blev inte så lyckat. Finns det någon "tumregel" för hur man kan få "bra" färgkombinationer?

DROPS Design 14.08.2018 kl. 16:10:

Hej Elisabeth, nej det finns det inte... Det är kanske enklare att byta ut en färg med en enfärgat DROPS Fabel eller DROPS Alpaca :)

Elli 01.05.2018 - 14:29:

Sehr schade, dass die angegebenen Garne eine vollständig andere Farbgebung haben als die Abbildung

Martina 17.03.2018 - 08:59:

Ich habe eine Frage zu den Umschlägen, werden die Umschläge in der 2. bzw. 4. Reihe rechts oder rechts verschränkt abgestrickt? Werden sie rechts gestrickt, entsteht ja ein Lochmuster. Vielen Dank für die Hilfe, Martina

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 09:20:

Liebe Martine, keine Umschläge wird verschränkt gestrickt, es wird ja Löcher entstehen und die Seiten werden auch so locker sein. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Buonasera. Scusate ma la tastiera mi ha giocato brutti scherzi. Nei messaggi precedenti intendevo chiedere se i gettati vanno lavorati sul ferro a rovescio con un diritto ritorto per non creare il buco perché nella foto non mi sembra ci siano buchi. Ringrazio e mi scuso ancora per errori.

Mariateresa Metri 12.03.2018 - 17:19:

Il gettato sul rovescio si deve lavorare a diritto diritto? Grazie

Mariateresa Metri 12.03.2018 - 17:17:

Scusate. Il gettato sul rovescio va lavorato con diritto diritto per non creare buco. Grazie

DROPS Design 12.03.2018 kl. 17:47:

Buongiorno Mariateresa. I gettati vengono lavorati a diritto e si deve formare un buco. Buon lavoro!
