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

SHAWL:
The shawl is worked from the one short side and across.

Cast on 164 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm and turquoise/blue. Knit 1 row from the wrong side. Insert 1 marker thread in the 2nd stitch on the row – seen from the right side. Continue with garter stitch and STRIPES - see description above, and work as follows:
ROW 1 (from the right side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1 (stitch with marker thread), 1 yarn over, work until there are 2 stitches left, knit 2 stitches together.
ROW 2 (from the wrong side): Knit 2 stitches together, knit to end of row, yarn overs are knitted to leave holes.
ROW 3 (from the right side): Work as far as the stitch with the marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 1 (stitch with marker thread), 1 yarn over, work until there are 2 stitches left, knit 2 stitches together.
ROW 4 (from the wrong side): Knit 2 stitches together, knit to end of row, yarn overs are knitted to leave holes.

Repeat rows 3 and 4 upwards, continue with 1 yarn over on each side of the stitch with the marker thread and decreases at end of rows from the right side and beginning of rows from the wrong side. The number of stitches stays the same upwards. Continue until you have increased 80 times on each side of the marker thread = 164 stitches on needle (worked 160 rows).

ROW 1 (= from the right side): Cast off the first 10 stitches on the needle, work to the stitch with the marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= stitch with the marker thread), 1 yarn over, work until there are 2 stitches left, knit 2 stitches together.
ROW 2 (from the wrong side): Knit 2 stitches together, work to end of row, yarn overs are knitted to leave holes = 154 stitches on needle.
ROW 3 (= from the right side): Work to the stitch with the marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= stitch with the marker thread), 1 yarn over, work until there are 2 stitches left, knit 2 stitches together.
ROW 4 (from the wrong side): Knit 2 stitches together, work to end of row, yarn overs are knitted to leave holes = 154 stitches on needle.

ROWS 5-10: Work as for rows 3 and 4 = 154 stitches on needle

Repeat rows 1 to 10 upwards, you decrease 10 stitches every 10 rows.
Continue until there are 4 stitches left on needle, cast off these stitches. Cut and fasten the strands.

Referring to my previous question, If I am increasing a stitch on each side of the marked stitch, then every 10 rows I cast off 10. how does it ever get down to 4 stitches? Logic says that it will not change from the 154 stitches. I have 154 now, 10 rows will bring it to 164, cast off 10, I'm back to 154.

Dear K8, when working the rows 1 to 10 you will: first cast off 10 sts, then inc 2 sts on every RS row and dec 1 st on every RS row + dec 1 st on every WS row = the 2 sts inc with the YO are compensated by the 2 dec. After you have worked the row 10 the second time, you cast off 10 sts = the number of stitches is then decreasing. Happy knitting!

K8 05.08.2019 - 20:42:

I have reached the first 10-stitch cast off, and can't see how the left side of the shawl gets smaller when my cast-offs reach the centre. Do I continue casting off the 10 sts every 10rows so that the yo's just disappear? Thanks

DROPS Design 07.08.2019 kl. 11:29:

Dear K8, after the 10 first stitches have been cast off (= as explained under row 1), continue working to the 1Oth row included, then repeat these 10 rows until 4 stitches remain = you will cast off 10 sts at the beg of every 11th row, continue to increase on each side of st with marker + on every row from RS + dec at the end of every row from RS and dec at the beg of every row from WS. Happy knitting!

Sono arrivata alla fase di diminuire 10 maglie al’inizio del 1 ferro ogni dieci Ferri. Che cosa succede quando devo diminuire con i gettati? Qualcosa mi sfugge

DROPS Design 02.07.2019 kl. 09:12:

Buongiorno Mariechristine. Se abbiamo capito correttamente la sua domanda, non deve fare le maglie gettate, ma intrecciare le maglie presenti sul ferro. Buon lavoro!

Olá, obrigada por partilhar este xaile maravilhoso. Já fiz um que ficou lindo e estou a fazer outro. Tenho 2 amigas que também estão a fazer. Adorei. Bjs de Portugal (Sintra)

Buongiorno, per caso ha chiesto la verifica alla casa madre? Grazie sara

DROPS Design 06.03.2019 kl. 16:32:

Buongiorno Sara. Al momento non abbiamo ricevuto indicazioni di correzioni sulla quantità di filato occorrente. Dovessero arrivare, il testo verrà corretto online. Buon lavoro!

Sara Pastore 11.02.2019 - 22:59:

Buonasera. Ho comprato il kit per point the way. Il campione mi viene identico a quello da voi fornito, ho montato 134 maglie invece di 164 ma dopo 15 cm circa il primo gomitolo è terminato. Mi chiedo, come faccio a ripetere lo schema? Grazie Sara

DROPS Design 14.02.2019 kl. 06:46:

Buongiorno Sara, non abbiamo ricevuto altre segnalazioni riguardo la quantità di filato, in ogni caso chiederemo una verifica alla casa madre. Buon lavoro!

Så rolig att sticka! Jag har gjort tre stycken på raken nu!

Gudrun 03.12.2018 - 22:38:

Hej lite frågande igen. Det står tydligt i beskrivningen att man inte ska börja maska av 10 maskor i sidan förrän det ökats 80 maskor på vardera sidan av markören. Men på bilden börjar dessa minskningar redan i tredje färgen, lavendel. Jag är nu förbi den färgen och mitt i sea mist, men har ändå 16 varv kvar innan det ökats 80 maskor på var sida markören. Det förvirrar. Har jag förstått fel?

DROPS Design 07.12.2018 kl. 13:55:

Hej Gudrun, nej men det låter som att du evt har en annan stickfasthet i höjden. Vi har 40 varv rätstickning på 10 cm i höjden. Det gör ingenting, men följ antal cm mönstret. Lycka till :)

Britta Storm 14.11.2018 - 10:16:

Jeg har selv fundet fejlen. Jeg har strikket 10 riller i stedet for 10 pinde mellem indtagningerne.

Britta Storm 11.11.2018 - 13:55:

Skal udtagningerne ikke slutte i spidsen? Jeg har lavet 9 indtagninger med 10 masker og nu er der ikke flere masker på den anden side af udtagningerne. Hvad gør jeg galt?

DROPS Design 30.11.2018 kl. 09:40:

Hei Britta. Så bra du fant ut av det. God fornøyelse
