DROPS Design: Pattern no la-035
Yarn group A
-----------------------------------------------------------
Measurements: approx. 52 cm / 20½'' mid back and approx. 207 cm / 82'' along the top edge after stretching.
Materials:
DROPS LACE from Garnstudio (belongs to yarn group A)
100 g color 0501, light gray

The piece can also be knitted with yarn from:
"Alternative yarn (Yarn Group A)" – see the link below.

DROPS CIRCULAR NEEDLE (80 cm / 32'') SIZE 3 mm/US 2.5 – or the size needed to get 24 stitches and 32 rows stockinette stitch on 10 cm / 4'' in width and 10 cm / 4'' in height.

KNITTING GAUGE:
The shawl will be dampened and stretched to the correct measurements at the end, so the knitting gauge is not too important, but to get an idea of whether you are knitting too tightly or too loosely, work a trial patch with needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and check that you get approx. 24 stitches and 32 rows stockinette stitch on 10 cm / 4'' in width and 10 cm / 4'' in height.

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. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.12. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side. Row 1 = right side.

SHAPING:
If you are using another yarn from yarn group A, you do not need to stretch the shawl to the right measurements, but dampen it and carefully lay it flat in the right shape. Allow it to dry. Repeat the process every time the shawl is washed.

BINDING OFF TIP:
To avoid the bind-off edge being tight, you can bind off with a needle a ½ size larger.
----------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle, top down. Work from the middle of the top edge with stockinette stitch and lace pattern and finish at the bottom with a border of lace pattern and garter stitch.

Cast on 3 stitches with circular needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and Lace - read KNITTING GAUGE above. Work according to diagram A.1 (= 3 stitches) - read PATTERN above. On the last row, insert 3 markers as shown in the diagram. When the whole of diagram A.1 has been completed in height, there are 27 stitches on the needle.

WORK ACCORDING TO DIAGRAMS A.2 TO A.6 AS FOLLOWS FROM THE RIGHT SIDE:
Work A.2 (= 4 stitches), A.3 (= 5 stitches – the first marker sits in the middle of A.3), A.4 (= 5 stitches – the second marker sits in the last stitch of A.4), A.5 (= 4 stitches), A.3 (= 5 stitches – the third marker sits in the middle of A.3) and A.6 (= 4 stitches). When the whole of diagrams A.2 to A.6 have been completed in height, there are 51 stitches on the needle.
Repeat the increases as shown in A.x onwards – increase alternately 4 and 8 stitches on each row from the right side (i.e. 12 increased stitches for every repeat of A.x in height), the increased stitches are worked in stockinette stitch on each side of A.3. Repeat as shown in A.x 24 times in total in height = 339 stitches on the needle. The piece measures approx. 36 cm / 14 1/4''.
On the next row from the right side, work and increase 4 stitches as shown on the first row of A.x = 343 stitches. Purl 1 row from the wrong side (the edge stitch in each side is worked in GARTER STITCH – see description above, throughout the whole piece). Knit 1 row from the right side and increase 1 stitch inside the edge stitch in garter stitch in each side and increase 1 stitch only by the mid-stitch (= 3 stitches increased) = 346 stitches on the needle and purl 1 row from the wrong side. You do not need the 3 markers from here.

WORK ACCORDING TO DIAGRAMS A.7 TO A.9 AS FOLLOWS FROM THE RIGHT SIDE:
Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.7 over 4 stitches, repeat A.8 until there are 5 stitches left on the needle (= 21 repeats of 16 stitches), A.9 over 4 stitches and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. NOTE! On the 11th row in the diagram, increase 2 stitches in each repeat of A.7, A.8 and A.9. On the 17th row increase 2 stitches in each of A.7 and A.9. When the whole of diagrams A.7 to A.9 have been completed in height, there are 430 stitches on the needle.

WORK ACCORDING TO DIAGRAMS A.10 TO A.12 AS FOLLOWS FROM THE RIGHT SIDE:
Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, A.10 over 7 stitches, repeat A.11 until there are 8 stitches left on the needle (= 23 repeats of 18 stitches), A.12 over 7 stitches and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. NOTE! On the 17th row in the diagram increase 3 stitches in A.10, 1 stitch in A.11 and 2 stitches in A.12. On the 21st row increase 2 stitches in A.10 and in A.12. When the whole of diagrams A.10 to A.12 have been completed in height, there are 496 stitches on the needle – loosely bind off on the last row from the wrong side - read BINDING OFF TIP above.

STRETCHING:
Lay the shawl in lukewarm water until it is thoroughly wet. Carefully press the water out of the shawl – it must not be twisted, then roll the shawl in a towel and press again to remove more water – the shawl will now just be damp. If you are using another yarn from yarn group A - read SHAPING above. Lay the shawl on a floor rug or mattress – pull it carefully into shape and use pins to fasten it in place. Allow the shawl to dry. Repeat the process every time the shawl is washed.

Årh for den da.... Havde jo lige glemt indtagningerne ! Så ja alt passer.

Jette 17.01.2019 - 21:29:

Når man skal i gang med AX står der, at der øges med skiftevis 4 og 8 ...... Jeg synes jo, der er 8 og 10 ekstra skiftevis i hver anden række. Altså 18 og ikke 12

DROPS Design 21.01.2019 kl. 11:19:

Hei Jette. Så bra at du fant ut av det. God fornøyelse videre

Linda J. Frederiksen 09.01.2019 - 18:21:

Kan jeg bruge 1-tråds moskusgarn til denne opskrift? Og hvad vil garnforbruget da være. Jeg kender desværre ikke løbelængden på moskusgarn.

Lynn 07.12.2018 - 11:17:

Jag har fastnat nu när jag har stickat A1-A6 Jag har 51 maskor på stickan och första raden på A.x är 39maskor bred vad ska jag göra med resterande 12? och vad ska jag göra med resterande 12 maskor som ökas varje gång när jag har stickat diagrammet A.x?

DROPS Design 07.12.2018 kl. 12:05:

Hei Lynn. Disse økte maskene strikkes i glattstrikk på hver side av A.3. Du begynner ikke på nytt igjen med A.X, men fortsetter å øke på samme måten som du har gjort i A.X. Altså du strikker annenhver pinne fra retten med øking, og annenhver pinne fra retten med øking og felling i endene av hvert diagram. Se for deg at diagrammet fortsetter på samme måte utover i en trekant, men for hver nye rapport i høyden er det 4 rettmasker fler enn på begynnelsen av forrige rapport. God fornøyelse

Hi!! My mun asks if there is a video about diagram A1 or this spacific shawl maybe. Thank you.

DROPS Design 25.11.2018 kl. 11:07:

Dear Katerina, you can find the turorial videos related to this pattern at the left side of teh page, just below the modell's picture. Happy Knitting!

Christa Roggensack 13.08.2018 - 17:25:

Danke für das tolle Tuch und für die geduldigen Antworten auf meine Fragen. Ich orientiere mich jetzt am Diagramm A.3 , das für mich jetzt ein Fixpunkt im Muster ist. Die Maschen bei A.2 und A.4 stricke ich entsprechend der Anzahl wie sie dann auf meiner Nadel liegen. Die Anzahl der Maschen ist bei mir dieselbe wie im Diagramm auch wenn Sie anders verteilt ist. Darum bin ich zuversichtlich am Ende auch A.9 bis A.12 problemlos ansetzen zu können.

Christa Roggensack 13.08.2018 - 14:38:

In A.3 werden in der 3. Reihe 2 Maschen zugenommen. Damit werden aus 5 Maschen 7 Maschen, die entsprechend nach A.2 und A.4 übertragen werden. In A.2 sind in dieser Reihe 2 Zunahmen und in A.4 0 Zunahmen. Damit müsste A.2 in der 4. Reihe 3 Maschen mehr haben und A.4 nur eine Masche mehr. Im Diagramm sind aber bei A.2 und A.4 je 2 Maschen mehr. Gleiche Zunahmen in A.2 und A.4 stimmen auch nicht mit dem Foto überein. A.2 ist da deutlich breiter als A.4.

DROPS Design 13.08.2018 kl. 15:45:

Liebe Frau Roggensack, bei der letzte Reihe in A.2-A.4 haben Sie 10 M in A.2 und 11 M (= 10 + 1 mit Markierer) in A.4, im A.3 haben Sie immer nur 5 Maschen. Es werden abwechslungsweise 2 und 4 M zugenommen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Christa Roggensack 12.08.2018 - 12:10:

Diagramme A.2 bis A.4: In der 3. Reihe sind 3 Zunahmen rechts der Mittelmasche von A.3 und 1 Zunahme links der Mittelmasche. In Reihe 4 sind nur 2 Zunahmen in A.2 eingetragen und 2 Zunahmen in A.4 . Damit würde sich die Mittelmasche in A.3 in jeder 4. Reihe 1 nach rechts über die Mittelmaschen der Vorreihen verschieben. Dasselbe auf der anderen Seite bei A.5 bis A.6 nur nach links. Frage: Ist dieser Versatz tatsächlich Absicht oder ein Fehler im Diagramm?

DROPS Design 13.08.2018 kl. 10:01:

Liebe Frau Roggensack, Diagramme sind korrekt: die zugenommenen Maschen in A.3 werden glatt rechts gestrickt. A.3 muß Immer auf diesen Maschen gestrickt werden (= der Markierer muss immer in der Mitte in A.3 sein). Gleichzeitig nehmen sie in A.2/A.6 zu (1 M bei der 1. und 5. Reihe und 2 M bei der 2. und 7. Reihe) und in A.4/A.5 nehmen Sie 1 M oder (2 M re, 1 U). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Decamps Marina 01.08.2018 - 15:46:

Et à quel moment je dois-je integré le diagramme A7 ? bien à vous

DROPS Design 01.08.2018 kl. 16:02:

Bonjour Mme Decamps, quand vous avez 346 m (après avoir répété A.2-A.6 et augmenté comme indiqué), vous tricotez A.7 à A.9 comme indiqué au paragraphe suivant: 1 m point mousse, A.7, on répète 21 fois A.8 , A.9, 1 m point mousse. Bon tricot!
