INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side. A.4 shows how squares are put together.
----------------------------------------------------------

BLANKET:
Blanket consists of 12 squares that are sewn together at the end.

SQUARE A:
Cast on 55 stitches on needle size 5 mm with 1 strand off white + 1 strand light pearl grey (= 2 strands). Work 3 ridges in GARTER STITCH back and forth - see explanation above! Work next row as follows from right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, work A.1A (= 12 stitches), work A.1B over the next 24 stitches (= 2 repetitions of 12 stitches), work A.1C (= 13 stitches) and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures approx. 30 cm, adjust after one hole or half repetition in height, work 3 ridges back and forth over all stitches. Cast off knitting from right side. Square measures approx. 32 x 32 cm. Work 4 squares in total.

SQUARE B:
Cast on 55 stitches on needle size 5 mm with 2 strands off white. Work 3 ridges. Work next row as follows from right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, work A.2A (= 3 stitches), work A.2B over the next 42 stitches (= 7 repetitions of 6 stitches), work A.2C (= 4 stitches) and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue pattern like this. When piece measures approx. 30 cm, adjust after one hole or half repetition in height and adjust according to measurement of square A, work 3 ridges back and forth over all stitches. Cast off knitting from right side. Square measures approx. 32 x 32 cm. Work 4 squares in total.

SQUARE C:
Cast on 55 stitches on needle size 5 mm with 2 strands light pearl grey. Work 3 ridges. Work next row as follows from right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, work A.3 over the next 49 stitches (= 7 repetitions of 7 stitches), and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue pattern like this. When piece measures approx. 30 cm, adjust after one hole or half repetition in height and adjust according to measurement of square A and B, work 3 ridges back and forth over all stitches. Cast off knitting from right side. Square measures approx. 32 x 32 cm. Work 4 squares in total.

ASSEMBLY:
Place squares as shown in A.4. Sew squares together with 1 strand light pearl grey - sew edge to edge in outer loops of edge stitches so that the seam is flat. Make sure that to avoid a tight seam. Fasten off.

Bonjour. Dans le modèle 181-32, carré A, lorsque deux jetés se suivent, doit-on tricoter la maille prise entre ces deux jetés? merci

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 10:57:

Bonjour Suzanne, on n'a jamais 2 jetés qui se suivent directement dans A.1, au 1er rang par ex on a, dans A.1A: 4 m end, 2 m ens à l'end, 1 jeté, 1 m end, 1 jeté, glissez 1 m à l'end, 1 m end, passez la m glissée par-dessus la m tricotée, 3 m end. Bon tricot!

Suzanne 03.01.2019 - 17:12:

Carré A Où est mon erreur??? Le patron se lit comment? de bas en haut et de droite à gauche? Le motif a 20 rangées. Après les 3 côtes mousses, j’ai débuté le motif (le 7e rang) par la 1re rangée située tout au bas du patron de la droite vers la gauche. Est-ce mon problème? Arrivée aux rangées 9 (end. 10 env. et11 end, le patron n’est plus en jersey mais en point mousse. Dans les photos le modèle est entièrement en jersey. Que se passe-t-il? Merci beaucoup

DROPS Design 04.01.2019 kl. 12:03:

Bonjour Suzanne, Au rang 9 de A.1, tricotez les 2 premières m de A.1A avec la première m de A.1B, tricotez ensuite la dernière m de A.1B avec les 2 premières mailles du A.1B suivant (puis de A.1C). Veillez à toujours bien avoir le bon nombre de mailles dans chaque diagramme, ajoutez un marqueur si besoin, ça aide bien souvent. Les rangs sur l'envers du diagramme (= rangs pairs) se tricotent tous à l'envers (n'oubliez pas les 3 m point mousse au début et à la fin). Bon tricot!

Avec le fil Big merino quelle serait la bonne taille de broche svp merci

DROPS Design 03.01.2019 kl. 08:15:

Chere Suzanne, je vous conseille de réaliser un échantillon pour vous assurer. Bon tricot!

Simona 18.11.2018 - 20:08:

Buongiorno. Ho scelto di utilizzare il baby Alpaca silk, quanto filato devo ordinare sempre 400g per ogni colore? Ho provato ad usare il convertitore di filati ma non mi da la sostituzione da Alpaca a baby alpaca

DROPS Design 18.11.2018 kl. 20:56:

Buonasera Simona, Alpaca e BabyAlpaca appartengono allo stesso gruppo di filati e hanno lo stesso metraggio, per cui può acquistare 400g di BabyAlpaca per colore. Buon lavoro!

Simona 06.10.2018 - 14:28:

Buongiorno. Posso fare questa coperta per un neonato? Meglio baby merino o baby alpaca silk?

DROPS Design 06.10.2018 kl. 16:22:

Buongiorno Simona. Entrambi i filati sono consigliati per capi per bambini. Baby Merino tende a cedere un po’ con il lavaggio. In entrambi i casi verifichi la tensione misurando un campione dopo averlo lavato e fatto asciugare. Buon lavoro!

Katie 06.09.2018 - 15:39:

I'm thinking about using a single strand worsted yarn. Thoughts? Any ideas as to how much yardage would be needed?

DROPS Design 06.09.2018 kl. 15:43:

Dear Katie, you can replace the 2 strands Alpaca = yarn group A with 1 strand yarn group C - read more about alternatives here. Happy knitting!

Nicole 01.06.2018 - 12:25:

Hello I wonder how much is needed for 1square? I want to make in different colors.

DROPS Design 01.06.2018 kl. 13:10:

Dear Nicole, we unfortunately are not able to adjust every pattern to each individual request. You are welcome to contact your store for any individual assistance, even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Kan tæppet strikkes i 100% bomuldsgarn ? og hvilke af jeres bomuldsgarn anbefaler i ? Passer antal gram stadig hvis man vælger bomuldsgarn hvor der er 50 gram pr. nøgle ?

DROPS Design 30.01.2018 kl. 09:52:

Hei Tina. Ja, teppet kan strikkes i bomulsgarn. Du kan velge mellom å bruke 2 tråder fra garngruppe A eller evnt 1 tråd fra garngruppe C, se vår oversikt over våre garn og hvilken garngruppe de tilhører. Bare husk at strikkefastheten må stemme med det som er oppgitt i oppskriften. Her er en link hvor du selv kan regne ut hvor mye garn du trenger når det byttes garn: https://www.garnstudio.com/lesson.php?id=14&cid=1" target="blank"> Omregn garnmengde fra en kvalitet til en annen. God Fornøyelse!

Nemi 21.01.2018 - 21:01:

Liebes Drops-Team, ichhabe große Schwierigkeiten mit Quadrat A bzw dessen Vorlage: Wie funktionieren Reihe 9 und 10? Ich habe das Muster jetzt 10x begonnen und jedes Mal habe ich nach Reihe 9 zu viele Maschen und das Muster in Reihe 10 stimmt dadurch nicht mehr. Vorher habe ich Quadrat 4 ohne Probleme stricken können.

DROPS Design 22.01.2018 kl. 10:25:

Liebe Nemi, am Ende A.1A stricken Sie die letzte M in A.1A zs mit den 2 ersten M in A.1B, dann stricken Sie die letzte M in A.1B zs mit den 2 ersten M in nächsten A.1B, und bei A.1C stricken Sie die letzte M in A.1B zs mit den 2 ersten M in A.1C. Beachten Sie, daß Sie immer die richtige Maschenanzahl (zB mit Markierung) in jedem Rapport haben. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Giulia 03.11.2017 - 19:21:

Salve, se volessi usare un filato del gruppo C, quanto me ne servirebbe? Grazie

DROPS Design 03.11.2017 kl. 19:41:

Buonasera Giulia. A questo link trova le indicazioni utili per sostituire due capi di filato del gruppo A con 1 capo del gruppo C. Buon lavoro!
