INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN:
Head band: See diagram A.1.
Neck warmer: See diagrams A.2 and A.3.
Wrist warmers: See diagrams A.4 to A.7.
The diagrams show all the rows in the patterns seen from the right side.

INCREASE/DECREASE TIP:
To work out how to increase/decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 21 stitches) and divide by the number of increases/decreases to be made (e.g. 6) = 3.5.
In this example increase after alternately every 3rd and 4th stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next row/round work the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes.
If you are decreasing, work alternately every 3rd and 4th stitch and every 4th and 5th stitch together.

INCREASE TIP (for the thumb gusset):
Work as far as the stitch with the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 1, make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes. The next time you are increasing, work as follows: Work until there are 2 stitches left before the stitch with the marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 3, make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). Continue to increase in this way every 6th round, i.e. you always increase on the outside of the increased stitches.
----------------------------------------------------------

HEAD BAND:
The piece is worked back and forth on the needle and is sewn together mid back.
Cast on 21 stitches with needle size 4 mm and Karisma. Knit 1 row (= wrong side). Knit 1 row from the right side where you increase 6 stitches evenly on row – read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 27 stitches. Then purl 1 row from the wrong side with 2 knitted stitches in each side. Continue by working A.1 back and forth until the piece measures approx. 49-51 cm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! You can try the head band on and finish when you have worked 1 or 3 rows after the row of cables. Now knit 1 row from the right side where you decrease 6 stitches evenly on row = 21 stitches. Knit 1 row from the wrong side and cast off in knit from the right side.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the cast-on edge to the cast-off edge with grafting stitches.
----------------------------------------------------------

NECK WARMER:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, bottom up.
Cast on 135 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm and Karisma. Knit 1 round. Then work A.2 (= 3 repeats of 45 stitches). When A.2 has been completed, there are 147 stitches on the needle and the piece measures approx. 3 cm. Change to circular needle size 4.5 mm and work A.3 (= 3 repeats of 49 stitches). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue A.3 until the piece measures approx. 33 cm – finish when you have worked approx. 2 rounds after the round with cables. Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm. The next round is worked as before, but over each cable decrease 2 stitches by knitting the 2 first and 2 last stitches in each cable together (= 12 stitches decreased) = 135 stitches. Work A.2 in the round (= 3 repeats of 45 stitches). When A.2B has been completed, cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can make 1 yarn over after approx. every 6th stitch at the same time as you cast off (the yarn overs are cast off as normal stitches). The neck warmer measures approx. 35 cm from the top down.
----------------------------------------------------------

LEFT WRIST WARMER:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles.
Cast on 51-54 stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and Karisma. Knit 1 round. The next round is worked as follows: * Knit 1, purl 2 *, repeat from *-* to the end of the round. When the rib measures 3 cm work the next round as follows: Knit the first 4 stitches and decrease, at the same time, 2-1 stitches evenly over these 4 stitches, work A.4 (= 17 stitches which are decreased to 16 stitches), knit the remaining 30-33 stitches and decrease at the same time 8-8 stitches evenly over these stitches = 40-44 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work the next round as follows: 2-3 stitches stocking stitch, A.5 (= 16 stitches), 22-25 stitches stocking stitch. Continue the pattern in this way. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 11-12 cm insert 1 marker thread in the last stitch on the round. On the next round increase for the thumb gusset on each side of the stitch with the marker thread – read INCREASE TIP (= 2 stitches increased). Increase in this way every 6th round a total of 4 times (you always increase on the outside of the increased stitches so that you get a gusset for the thumb) = 48-52 stitches. After the last increases the piece measures approx. 18-19 cm. Continue the pattern. AT THE SAME TIME on the first round after the last increases, place the 9 thumb-gusset stitches on a thread, in addition cast on 2 new stitches on the needle over the stitches on the thread = 41-45 stitches. Continue in the round with stocking stitch and A.5 until the piece measures approx. 18-20 cm (there are now 3 cm left before the finished length – you can try the wrist warmer on, work to desired length and finish when you have worked approx. 2 rounds after a round with cables). Change to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and work the next round as follows: Knit the first 2-3 stitches and increase at the same time 2-1 stitches evenly over these stitches, knit 16 stitches of A.5 and increase at the same time 1 stitch over A.5, knit the next 22-25 stitches and increase at the same time 7-7 stitches evenly over these stitches = 51-54 stitches. Work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 3 cm. Then cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The whole wrist warmer measures approx. 21-23 cm.

THUMB:
Place the 9 stitches from the thread back on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and knit up 6 new stitches at the back of the thumb (i.e. knit up 1 stitch in each of the 2 stitches which were cast on + 2 stitches on each side of these 2 stitches) = 15 stitches. Work 3 rounds stocking stitch (make sure the thumb is not worked too tightly). Then work rib in the round (= knit 1 / purl 2) for 3-3½ cm. Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

RIGHT WRIST WARMER:
Cast on 51-54 stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm. Knit 1 round. The next round is worked as follows: * Purl 2, knit 1 *, repeat from *-* to the end of the round. When the rib measures 3 cm work the next round as follows: Knit the first 30-33 stitches and decrease at the same time 8-8 stitches evenly over these stitches, work A.6 (= 17 stitches which are decreased to 16 stitches), knit the last 4 stitches and decrease at the same time 2-1 stitches evenly over these 4 stitches = 40-44 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work the next round as follows: 22-25 stitches stocking stitch, A.7 (= 16 stitches), 2-3 stitches stocking stitch. Continue pattern in this way. AT THE SAME TIME when the piece measures 11-12 cm insert 1 marker thread in the first stitch on the round. On the next round increase for the thumb gusset on each side of the stitch with the marker thread – read INCREASE TIP (= 2 stitches increased). Increase in this way every 6th round a total of 4 times (i.e. you always increase on the outside of the increased stitches so that you get a gusset for the thumb) = 48-52 stitches. After the last increases the piece measures approx. 18-19 cm. Continue the pattern. AT THE SAME TIME on the first round after the last increases, place the 9 thumb-gusset stitches on a thread, in addition cast on 2 new stitches on the needle over the stitches on the thread = 41-45 stitches. Continue in the round with stocking stitch and A.7 until the piece measures approx. 18-20 cm (adjust to match the left wrist warmer). Change to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and work the next round as follows: knit the first 22-25 stitches and increase at the same time 7-7 stitches evenly over these stitches, knit 16 stitches in A.7 and increase at the same time 1 stitch over A.7 and knit the last 2-3 and increase 2-1 stitches evenly over these stitches = 51-54 stitches on the needle. Work rib in the round (= purl 2 / knit 1) for 3 cm. Then cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl. The whole wrist warmer measures approx. 21-23 cm. Work the thumb in the same way as for the left wrist warmer.

Diagram

= knit from right side, purl from wrong side
= purl from right side, knit from wrong side
= knit 1 in the stitch from the previous row, i.e. insert the right needle through the stitch from the previous row, make 1 yarn over, pull the yarn over through the stitch and slip this stitch and the first stitch sitting on the left needle off the needle
= place 3 stitches on the cable needle in front of the piece, knit 3, knit 3 from the cable needle
= place 3 stitches on the cable needle behind the piece, knit 3, knit 3 from the cable needle
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= work 1 stitch in front and back of same stitch (= 1 stitch increased)

Y-a-t-il une façon de télécharger vos patron en PDF

Bonjour Mme Bergeron, nos modèles peuvent seulement être imprimés, pour les enregistrer au format PDF, lancez l'impression et choisissez une imprimante virtuelle au lieu de l'imprimante "papier". Bon tricot!

Buongiorno, sto cercando di fare la fascia, ma avrei gentilmente bisogno di un chiarimento: i ferri dispari li lavoro come da schema A1, mentre i ferri pari come li lavoro? Così come si presentano? Grazie, cordiali saluti.

DROPS Design 07.11.2018 kl. 10:21:

Buongiorno Germana. Nel diagramma trova sia i ferri di andata che i ferri di ritorno. Quindi i ferri pari corrispondono alle righe pari del diagramma A1. Buon lavoro!

Buongiorno, sto cercando di fare la fascia, ma avrei bisogno di un chiarimento: i ferri dispari li lavoro come sullo schema A1, mentre i ferri pari come li lavoro? Così come mi si presentano? Grazie, saluti.

Marie Thompson 16.09.2018 - 20:17:

I want to knit the headband but do not understand the blacked in bloc in a1 and cannot find a tutorial. Can you help?

DROPS Design 17.09.2018 kl. 09:31:

Dear Mrs Thompson, this stitch is a double stitch and worked as shown in the video below. Happy knitting!

Laura Menegatti 27.12.2017 - 08:50:

Buongiorno. Per favore, vorrei chiarimenti su scaldapolsi taglia S/M: "Finiti gli aumenti per tassello pollice (48 m.) il lavoro è di ca. 18 cm.. Proseguire...= 41m.. Proseguire a m. rasata e diagr. A5 finché il lavoro misura ca. 18 cm.". Perché si ripete la stessa altezza di 18 cm? Significa che in realtà non devo proseguire se non dopo aver completato 2 giri dopo il giro della treccia? Grazie

DROPS Design 30.12.2017 kl. 21:45:

Buonasera Laura. Chiederemo una verifica alla casa madre sulla correttezza delle misure indicate. Buon lavoro!

Comment s'appelle la maille symbolisée par un carré noir : "maille endroit dans la maille du rang précédent, c'est-à-dire que l’on pique l’aiguille droite dans la maille du rang précédent, on fait 1 jeté, on ramène le jeté dans la maille et on lâche cette maille et la 1ère de l’aiguille gauche". Y a t'il un tutoriel? Merci.

Bonjour Elisabeth C, c'est la technique de la maille double dont vous trouvez la vidéo ici. Bon tricot!
