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

To make sure that the cast-off edge is elastic, cast off with double strand or use a larger size needle.

The shawl is worked back and forth on circular needle so you have room for all the stitches. You work from the tip mid front and increase on each row in the sides.

Cast on 2 stitches with circular needle size 8 mm and Air. Then work as follows:
ROWS 1-2: Knit 1 stitch, 1 yarn over and knit to end of row = 2 stitches increased.
ROWS 3-4: Knit 1 stitch, 1 yarn over, knit 1 stitch, 1 yarn over and knit to end of row = 4 stitches increased.
ROWS 5-6: Knit 1 stitch, 1 yarn over and knit to end of row = 2 stitches increased.
ROWS 7-8: Knit 1 stitch, 1 yarn over, knit 1 stitch, 1 yarn over and knit to end of row = 4 stitches increased.
ROW 9: Knit 1 stitch, 1 yarn over, * knit 2 stitches together, 1 yarn over *, repeat from *-* until there are 1 stitch left and knit 1 stitch = 1 stitch increased.
ROW 10: Knit 1 stitch, 1 yarn over and knit to end of row = 1 stitch increased.
ROWS 11-12: Knit 1 stitch, 1 yarn over, knit 1 stitch, 1 yarn over and knit to end of row = 4 stitches increased.

There are now 20 stitches on the needle. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Repeat ROWS 1-12 in the same way onwards; the number of stitches increases by 18 each time ROWS 1-12 are worked 1 time in height. Continue in this way until the piece measures 51 cm from the cast-on edge. Read CASTING OFF TIP and loosely cast off. Cut and fasten the strands.

Hei! Dette mønsteret liker jeg godt! Har strikket det ned «riktige» pinner og garntykkelse. Hvordan ville det være å strikke samme mønster med et tynnere garn, og på f.eks. pinner 4? Tenkte det kunne vært fint med et angoragarn eller merinoull.

Hei Monica. Om du strikker med tynnere garn og pinner vil strikkefatsheten bli en annen, og målene på sjalet vil nok bli mindre. Du skal gjenta de 12 pinnene til sjalet målet 51 cm, men hvor mange ganger de 12 pinnenene da gjentas, avhenger helt av strikkefastheten. Dette vil igjen påvirke hvor mange masker du har på pinnen og vidden på sjalet. Du må nesten prøve deg frem og se - det er jo et sjal så sjansen for at det kommer til å "passe" er hvertfal stor. God fornøyelse

In effetti la differenza secondo me è nel FERRO 10 dove gli aumenti non sono 2 ma 1 soltanto. La somma degli aumenti da voi indicata corrisponde infatti a 19 maglie per ogni ripetizione è non alle effettive 18 maglie del modello. Vi ringrazio per i bellissimi modelli che mettete gratuitamente a disposizione e mi complimento per l'ottima qualità dei vostri filati che sono gli unici che acquisto da molto tempo a questa parte.

Buonasera Antonella. Abbiamo corretto il testo del ferro 10. La ringraziamo per la segnalazione. Buon lavoro!

Antonella Mameli 06.06.2018 - 14:07:

Ho realizzato più volte questo modello che trovo bellissimo. \\r\\nCredo però ci sia un errore nella descrizione, al FERRO 9 voi scrivete = 1 aumento, secondo me al ferro 9 gli aumenti sono = 0.\\r\\nGrazie per l\\\'attenzione!

DROPS Design 06.06.2018 kl. 14:46:

Buongiorno Antonella. Le indicazioni per il ferro 9 sono corrette così come riportate nel testo. Buon lavoro!

Would it be possible to provide a knit or crochet-along for your patterns? I just found your sitr and saved two patterns, the"Donna" tunic pattern and a pink triangle pattern and I wish I could follow a tutorial knit-along for these patterns in particular. Would u assist me with this, please? Love your patterns. However, I need a knit-along to get through the pattern. Love your yarn assistance, too. Thank you!

Dear Amelia, though we do have KALs and CALs once ina while for pieces specifically designed for that purpouse, unfortunately we can't do that for every pattern we publish. However, you can join the Facebppk group DROPS Workshop, where you might find others who are working on teh same modell. Also you can always get personal help in the store, you bought your DROPS Yarn from. Happy Crafting!

Bonjour, il y a une erreur pour le rang 9 dans la version française. Il est inscrit de répéter de *_* jusqu'à ce qu'il reste 3 mailles, tricoter 2 mailles endroit, 1jeté et une maille endroit = on a augmenté 1maille. Si on fait ce qui est inscrit, il y a une augmentation de 2 mailles... On devrait plutôt répéter de *_* jusqu'à ce qu'il reste 1 maille, tricoter 1 maille. Ce qui fait une augmentation. Comme dans la version anglaise. Cordialement Julie Massé

DROPS Design 31.01.2018 kl. 08:51:

Bonjour Mme Massé, merci pour votre retour, le rang 9 a été corrigé. Bon tricot!

Concerne rg 1 et 2 si on monte 2 m =rg 1 comment obtenir 2 aug en faisant 1 m end 1 jeté sur ces 2 m de base ??? rg 2

DROPS Design 22.01.2018 kl. 08:49:

Bonjour Mme Heider, on fait 1 jeté au rang 1 et 1 jeté au rang 2 (= les rangs 1 et 2 se tricotent de la même façon), on va ainsi augmenter 1 m à chacun de ces rangs. Bon tricot!
