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.

INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

COLOUR AND EDGE TIP (for head band):
The head band is worked with 1 strand alternate from the outside and 1 strand from the inside of the ball to thin out the stripes (or you can divide the ball in 2). The change of strand is always from the same side; so that the strand change does not tighten the edge, work the outermost stitch in this side with both strands (= double strand).

INCREASE TIP (for head band): 
Increase by making 1 yarn over, on the next row knit the yarn over twisted to prevent holes (= work in the back loop of the stitch). All increased stitches are continued in garter stitch.

DECREASE TIP (for head band): 
Decrease by knitting 2 stitches together.
----------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle. The whole shawl is worked in GARTER STITCH – see description above. 
Cast on 5 stitches with circular needle size 4,5 mm and Fabel and knit 1 row from the wrong side. Then work according to the diagrams as follows, from the right side: Work A.1 over 3 stitches, insert a stitch-marker after A.1 which follows the piece upwards and work A.2 over 2 stitches. NOTE! It is important to use a stitch-marker in the piece to separate the diagrams. Increase and decrease in diagram A.1 and in diagram A.2 increase stitches which are cast off on the last row of the diagram. When the diagrams have been completed 1 time in height, you have increased 8 stitches in A.1 = 13 stitches on the row.

Now continue as follows: Work A.3 over 11 stitches, remember to allow the stitch-marker to follow the piece upwards and work A.2 over 2 stitches. When the diagrams have been completed 1 time in height, you have increase 8 stitches in A.3 = 21 stitches on the row.

Continue by increasing and decreasing in the same way in A.3, but there are now more stitches between the increases and the decreases. In other words, you work as follows: Work 3 stitches as shown at the beginning of A.3, work garter stitch as before until there are 2 stitches left before the stitch-marker and work the last 2 stitches as shown at the end of A.3 and work A.2 over the stitches after the stitch-marker. Continue to work in this way, A.3 increases with 8 stitches every time the diagram is worked in height. The new stitches in the middle of A.3 are worked in garter stitch.

Continue to work in this way until there are 213 stitches on the row, stopping before the last row in diagram A.2 (on the 25th tip or work to desired length, but make sure that you have enough yarn to cast off with). Now cast off as follows to get an elastic edge: * Cast off 2 stitches, 1 yarn over and cast off the yarn over loosely *, repeat from *-* to end of row, cut and fasten the strands.

----------------------------------------------------------

HEAD BAND:
The piece is worked back and forth on the needle and is sewn together mid back to finish. 
Cast on 30-34-38 stitches with needle size 2.5 mm and Fabel. Work as follows (from the right side):

ROW 1: Work 2 stitches GARTER STITCH – see description above, * knit 2, purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until there are 4 stitches left, knit 2 stitches and work 2 stitches garter stitch. Turn the piece.
ROW 2: Work 2 stitches garter stitch, * purl 2 stitches and knit 2 stitches * repeat from *-* until there are 4 stitches left, purl 2 stitches and work 2 stitches garter stitch. READ COLOUR AND EDGE TIP. Turn the piece.
ROW 3: Work 1 stitch garter stitch (with both strands), 1 stitch garter stitch, * knit 2, purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until there are 4 stitches left, knit 2 stitches and work 2 stitches garter stitch. Turn the piece.
ROW 4: Work 2 stitches garter stitch, * purl 2 stitches, knit 2 stitches * repeat from *-* until there are 4 stitches left, purl 2 stitches, 1 stitch garter stitch and 1 stitch garter stitch (with both strands). Turn the piece.

Repeat ROWS 3-4 in this way until the piece measures 7-8-9 cm, now increase 1 stitch on the outside of the purl section in each side – SEE INCREASE TIP. Repeat the increase every 10th row a total of 6 times = 42-46-50 stitches. There are now 8 stitches garter stitch in each side. Work garter stitch and rib as before until the piece measures 27-30-31 cm. Now decrease 1 stitch on the outside of the purl section in each side – SEE DECREASE TIP! Repeat the decrease every 10th row a total of 6 times = 30-34-38 stitches. Work garter stitch and rib as before until the piece measures 48-52-54 cm, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Cut the strand, sew the cast-off and cast-on edges together with small stitches.

Jeanne 22.05.2018 - 10:42:

Bonjour,Faut il lire les diagrammes de haut en bas puis de gauche à droite à chaque rang ou de gauche à droite sur les rangs endroits et de droite à gauche sur les rangs envers ?De plus, j'ai l'impression qu'il y a une erreur sur le diagramme A2. N'y a t'il pas une maille en trop sur la ligne 15 (en partant du bas), car il 'y a pas d'augmentation à la ligne 14, nous devrions donc avoir le même nombres de mailles.Merci pour votre aide !

DROPS Design 22.05.2018 kl. 11:34:

Bonjour Jeanne, les diagrammes se lisent en commençant en bas à droite sur l'endroit et de droite à gauche sur l'endroit, et de gauche à droite sur l'envers. À l'avant-dernier rang de A.2 on a bien 9 m end, 1 jeté, 1 m end. Bon tricot!

Concordo com sua desfecho. As vezes é difícil para quem está no início, mas zero que a experiência não ajuda.

Hi I understand from my local Drops superstore that you are not doing printed pattern books for the seasonal collections. Is that true and, if so, why? Thanks and happy new year.

DROPS Design 03.01.2018 kl. 14:09:

Dear Mrs Stuart, the request for the seasonnal collections was not enough to print catalogues, while patterns can be always printed for free from our website. But you can get nice collections brochures from your DROPS Store. Happy knitting!

Crissi38 11.10.2017 - 09:42:

Ich verstehe nicht, wie ich die Muster verbinde. Hatte bereits mehrere Versuche aber die Farben verlaufen immer um die Ecke, weil ich die Zunahmen in der Mitte mache. Was mache ich falsch?

DROPS Design 11.10.2017 kl. 13:40:

Liebe Crissi38, Sie stricken A.1 vor dem Markierer und A.2 nach dem Markierer (von der Vorderseite gesehen). Wenn A.1/A.2 1x in der Höhe gestrickt sind, stricken Sie A.3 vor dem Markierer und A.2 nach dem Markierer. Wenn A.3 1x in der Höhe gestrickt ist, stricken Sie wie zuvor, und im A.3 die 3 ersten Maschen wie im A.3 (= Zunahmen) und die 2 letzten Maschen (= Abnahmen) wie im A.3 und die Maschen inzwischen stricken Sie kraus rechts - immer mit A.2 nach dem Markierer. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Você usa de forma simplória e direta e também também de vocábulo que para bastante bem no seu artigo. Não conhecia seu sítio ainda, porém irei voltar de novo.

Cristiane Diaz Garota De Programa 05.10.2017 - 03:39:

Você escreve bastante muito e espero que avance por bastante tempo porque conheci seu site atualmente mesmo. Até mais.
