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.

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

See diagrams A.1 to A.4. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.


Work piece back and forth on circular needle with 2 strands.

Cast on 108 stitches on circular needle size 10 mm / US 15 with 2 strands Air. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above, then work as follows - from right side: 3 stitches in garter stitch, A.1 over the next 32 stitches, A.2 (= 38 stitches), A.4 over the next 32 stitches, 3 stitches in garter stitch. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 120 stitches on row. Continue with A.3 (= 50 stitches) over stitches in A.2, continue the other stitches as before. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures 120 cm / 47 1/4'', decrease 4 stitches evenly over each cable in A.3 = 108 stitches on needle. Work 2 ridges over all stitches, then bind off by knitting.

Ik begrijp niet hoe ik het zwarte vakje uit het telpatroon moet doen: voeg de rechternaald door de steek van de vorige naald, 1 recht en laat de steek van de naald af glijden. Is het mogelijk daar een tekeningetje of filmpje van te krijgen?

Dag Ans,

Normaal steek je de rechter naald in de steek op de linker naald. Nu steek je de naald in de steek die hier gelijk onder zit (dus in de steek op de linker naald die de naald daarvoor gebreid is).

Bonjour pour ce modèle vous mentionnez aiguilles N°10 et sur la pelote il est marqué aiguilles N°5 lesquels dois je prendre Cordialement

Bonjour Mme Dhirson, tout à fait, cette couverture se tricote avec 2 fils DROPS Air (= le fil en double) et les aiguilles 10 ou celles qui vous seront nécessaires pour obtenir l'échantillon - ajustez pour des aiguilles plus grosses ou plus fines le cas échéant. Bon tricot!
