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.

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 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 KNITTING TENSION!
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 cast-off).
To make an elastic edge, cast off as follows: * Cast off 2 stitches, make 1 yarn over and cast off yarn over as regular stitch *, repeat from *-* until all stitches have been cast off. Cut the yarns and weave in ends.

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

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

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

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

Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas comment on part de 3 mailles pour arriver à 211 mailles. Rang 1 : 1 endroit, 1 jeté, 1 endroit, 1 jeté, 1 endroit = 5 mailles ok. Rang 2 : tricoter tout à l'endroit (5 mailles) Rang 3 : tricoter 2 mailles ensemble endroit, donc on n'a plus que 4 mailles. C'est là que je ne comprends pas. Pouvez-vous donner plus de détails dans l'explication pour les rangs 3 et 5 ? Comment le nombre de mailles augmente-t-il ? Merci !

DROPS Design 18.01.2018 kl. 09:06:

Bonjour Patricia, on va augmenter 2 mailles à chaque rang 5 (= tous les 4 rangs) et en même temps, on crée la diagonale en diminuant 1 m en début de rang + en augmentant 1 m (= 1 jeté) en fin de rang, tous les 2 rangs= tous les rangs 3, le nbe de mailles reste le même qu'au rang précédent (= 1 augm et 1 dim). Tous les rangs 5, on augmente 2 m en fin de rang sur l'endroit. Bon tricot!

Por favor, más vídeos con método inglés !!

Alessia 24.12.2017 - 14:04:

Aiuto, non capisco. Dopo aver fatto riga da 1 a 5 e poi ancora da due a 5....rimango sempre con 5 maglie/punti...sicuramente sbaglio. Inoltre non ho capito bene come si fa con i ferri circolari a lavorare "sul rovescio" : il lato interno non è sempre il diritto del lavoro? Se si può, potreste inserire un video di come lavorare da inizio fino a riga 6 o 7 per capure come si parte?! Grazie per ogni vs risposta.

DROPS Design 24.12.2017 kl. 14:44:

Buongiorno Alessia. Ogni volta che lavora il ferro 5, il numero delle maglie aumenta di 2. Per "rovescio del lavoro" si intende la parte del lavoro che rimane all'interno, non quella in vista. Buon lavoro!

Omdat ik nog zoveel DROPS kidsilk heb liggen en een model vestje van dit ook mooi zou zijn in kidsilk, vraag ik me af hoe breed je moet eindigen in cm. Immers 221 steken bij verschillend garen kan heel anders zijn in cm. hartelijk dank voor jullie antwoord.

DROPS Design 11.12.2017 kl. 12:39:

Hallo Mtenhaaf. Het handigst is om even een proeflapje te maken met de kidsilk. Als de stekenverhouding gelijk is als in het patroon, zul je ongeveer een omslagdoek van dezelfde afmetingen krijgen. Bij 'materialen' staat hoe breed (en hoog) de omslagdoek wordt; namelijk 172 cm.

Mieke Ten Haaf-mars 25.11.2017 - 11:44:

Repeat ROWS 2 to 5 until there are approx. 221 and then what ? Ja de minderingen: hoe zit dat precies:Het was de eerste vraag die ook bij mij opkwam. Willen jullie even in het Nederlands de uitleg geven wat te doen als je op de helft bij 221 steken bent. Alvast Hartelijk dank, Mieke

DROPS Design 27.11.2017 kl. 09:31:

Hallo Mieke, Herhaal steeds naald 2 t/m 5 totdat je ongeveer 221 steken op de naald hebt (of de gewenste lengte). Daarna is het werk klaar en kun je afkanten volgens instructies: Kant 2 steken af, maak 1 omslag en kant de omslag af zoals een normale steek *, herhaal van *-* tot alle steken afgekant zijn. Veel breiplezier!
