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.

When working stripes adjust according to one whole repetition of A.2 before switching color, it is important so that the color changes are on the same side. Measure along the side where you decrease in diagram. Work stripes as follows:
STRIPE 1: 50 cm / 19 3/4'' purple
STRIPE 2: 4 cm / 1½'' heather
STRIPE 3: 6 cm / 2 3/8'' gray
STRIPE 4: 32 cm / 12½'' heather
STRIPE 5: 4 cm / 1½'' purple
STRIPE 6: 22 cm / 8 3/4'' gray

Work piece back and forth on circular needle. Cast on 3 stitches on circular needle size 9 mm / US 13 with purple. Then work according to diagram A.1 and STRIPES - see explanation above. When diagram A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, work diagram A.2, there are now 11 stitches on row.
Now work diagram A.2 vertically the rest of the piece but as 2 stitches are increased for every repetition there are now more stitches between yarn overs at beginning of rows and decrease at the end of rows.
Work A.2 like this until last stripe has been worked.

To avoid a tight edge bind off while knitting as follows: * bind off 2 stitches, make 1 yarn over and bind off yarn over as regular stitch *, repeat from *-* the rest of row. Cut the yarn and fasten.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= knit from right side
= knit from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over, knit yarn over on next row to make a hole
= knit 2 together

Bonjour les centimètres se mesurent sur quel partie en haut du châle ou sur le bas ? Merci à vous

Bonjour Bibou, mesurez l'ouvrage le long du côté gauche du châle, vu sur l'endroit (= le côté où vous diminuez en fin de rang sur l'endroit dans les diagrammes). Bon tricot!
