INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 stitch by knitting 1 and knitting 1 twisted in same stitch.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

CHANGING STRAND TIP:
When changing to a new ball, it is neatest to change at the beginning or end of a row. This avoids strand joins in the middle of the piece.
----------------------------------------------------------

STOLE:
Because of the number of stitches, the piece is worked back and forth on circular needle. By increasing on one side of the piece and decreasing on the other, the pattern becomes diagonal. Read CHANGING STRAND TIP!

Cast on 121 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and Cotton Merino og Sky and work as follows:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit 2, make 1 yarn over, knit until there are 3 stitches left on the row, knit 2 together and finish with knit 1.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit (the yarn over at the end of the row is knitted twisted to avoid a hole).
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you have worked a total of 3 ridges. Then work stripes with alternately lace pattern and garter stitch as described below.

STRIPE WITH LACE PATTERN:
The first row is worked as follows from the right side: Work A.1A (= 7 stitches), work A.1B over the next 96 stitches (= 8 repeats of 12 stitches) and finish with A.1C (= 18 stitches). Work back from the wrong side as shown in the diagrams.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Work A.2A (= 8 stitches), work A.2B over the next 96 stitches (= 8 repeats of 12 stitches) and finish with A.2C (= 17 stitches).
Continue A.2 in this way until the whole of A.2 has been worked a total of 2 times in height. Then work a stripe with garter stitch as described below.

STRIPE WITH GARTER STITCH:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit 2, make 1 yarn over, knit until there are 3 stitches left on the row, knit 2 together and finish with knit 1.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit (the yarn over at the end of the row is knitted twisted to avoid a hole).
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you have worked a total of 18 ridges. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!

Continue in this way with stripes in alternately lace pattern and garter stitch until the stole measures approx. 158 cm along the long side (or to desired length), but finish after a stripe with lace pattern.
Then work a small stripe with garter stitch in the same way as described above, but finish when you have worked a total of 3 ridges. Cast off with knit from the right side. The stole measures approx. 160 cm along the long side.

Har nu stickat sjalen DIANDRA men får den inte att stämma.Man ska ju öka i ena sidan o minska i den andra.Jag har stickat den i den längd som det står men snibbarna möter inte varandra hur jag än vrider o vänder.Ska jag efter halva sjalen ändra sidan för ökning o minskning

Hallo, wie strickt man die Randmaschen, damit ein sauberer Rand entsteht? Letzte M einer R abheben, in der nächsten R re str? Oder letzte M er str, in der nächsten R abh? Oder immer rechts str, dann gibt es den Knötchenrand! Auf dem Modellfoto kann ich es nicht erkennen. Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Charlotte Ebert

Liebe Frau Ebert, die Randmaschen werden krausrechts gestrickt, wie im Diagram gezeigt (siehe A.1A + A.1C und A.2A + A.2C). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jas 29.09.2018 - 20:57:

Ho, is knit from wrong side equivalent to ktbl.

DROPS Design 30.09.2018 kl. 08:45:

Dear Jas, the opposite of ktbl is the twisted purl stitch, you can either ptbl, or slip the stitch, put it back twisted and purl. Happy Knitting!

Ich vermisse auch eine Massskizze. Sie würde mir sehr helfen. Schon jetzt vielen Dank für Ihre Mühe.

DROPS Design 29.08.2018 kl. 10:17:

Liebe Frau Lessmann, die Maße der Stola finden Sie oben im Kopf der Anleitung. Im Prinzip ist die Stola wie ein Parallelogramm, d.h. wie ein Rechteck, bei dem die rechte und linke Seite nicht gerade hoch, sondern schräg verlaufen. Ich leite Ihr Anliegen aber gerne weiter. Gutes Gelingen!

Marina Verhaeghe 12.06.2018 - 10:04:

Can my confusion come before the 2nd height of the lace pattern, because I put a mark after the first 8 stitches and for the last 17 stitches? I think Helene put her stitches in the front and at the back a brand sign. Thanks in advance. Marina

Marina Verhaeghe 12.06.2018 - 08:22:

Do not understand how to knit the 2nd part of the lace pattern. I have 14 stitches at the beginning of the needle, so that's 6 stitches more than in A2A do I knit 6 then right? And in the end I have 11 stitches, how can I knit the A2C over there because it has 17 stitches ???????? Explanation in the reaction to Helene is really not clear though Thanks in advance, Marina

DROPS Design 12.06.2018 kl. 08:48:

Dear Mrs Verhaeghe, after you have worked A.2 one time in height, repeat A.2 the same way as before, ie A.2A over first 8 sts, repeat A.2B over the next 96 sts and finish with A.2C over the last 17 sts. Happy knitting!

Hélène 11.06.2018 - 13:29:

Bonjoir, j’aimerais savoir combien il y a de répétition de rangs sur le modèle présenté? J’en ai compté 9. Je suis rendue à 3 répétitions et je suis un peu septique quant au résultat. Merci!

DROPS Design 11.06.2018 kl. 16:16:

Bonjour Hélène, c'est bien exact, si votre tension est correcte en hauteur, vous répéterez la rayure ajourée et la rayure point mousse 9 fois au total en hauteur. Bon tricot!

Helle Andersen 06.06.2018 - 21:53:

Hej, mit spørgsmål er til begyndelsen. 121 masker. Skal lave to ret og slå om. Mener I to ret sammen og slå om. Ellers ender jeg jo ikke på 121 masker igen, når der skal laves hulmønster. Jeg synes billedet er alm. Retstrikning. Det andre tvivl jo lave et hulmønster. Hvad er det, jeg ikke forstår? På forhånd tak

DROPS Design 07.06.2018 kl. 08:17:

Hej Helle, jo det stemmer, for du tager ud i den ene side ved at lave et omslag og ind i den anden side ved at strikke 2 ret sammen. Ja det stemmer at du skal strikke striber med hulmønster og retstrik, bare følg opskriften så får du din stola som på billedet :)

Marina Verhaeghe 04.06.2018 - 08:31:

There is an error in Diandra\'s description. It states that the diagrams A1 and A2 show all needles in the pattern on the right side. That is not true with the translation from Norwegian. It should be that on the diagram A1 and A2 all needles can be seen. The rest should not be included.\r\n\r\nCreative greetings,\r\nMarina

DROPS Design 04.06.2018 kl. 09:52:

Dear Mrs Verhaeghe, diagrams are showing all sts and all rows (both from RS and from WS), but you will have to repeat the sts in A.1B/A.2B while A.1.A/A.2A and A.1C/A.2C will be worked only once (= at the beg/end of row). Happy knitting!

Bitte fügen Sie eine Maßskizze bei. Mir ist nicht ganz klar welche Form das Tuch hat.
