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.

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

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

Work back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 61 stitches on circular needle size 4 mm with Merino Extra Fine. Insert 1 marker 3 stitches in from each side (= 55 stitches between markers). Work as follows:
ROW 1 (= from right side): Work 2 stitches in GARTER STITCH – see explanation above, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), work in garter stitch until 1st marker, 1 yarn over before marker (= 1 stitch increased), work 55 stitches in garter stitch (2nd marker is here), 1 yarn over after marker (= 1 stitch increased), work in garter stitch until 2 stitches remain, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), finish with 2 stitches in garter stitch (= 4 stitches increased in total on row).
ROW 2 (= from wrong side): Work in garter stitch over all stitches, the first and last yarn over is not worked twisted, they should make holes, the 2 middle yarn overs are worked twisted, they should NOT make holes. I.e. there is 1 eyelet row inside 2 stitches in garter stitch in each side of piece.
Work 31 ridges in total (= 62 rows in total), i.e. 62 stitches have been increased on each side of the 55 middle stitches = 185 stitches on row. Piece measures approx. 15 cm measured along the knitting direction.
Work next row as follows from right side: Work 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, A.1a over next stitch, work A.2a (= 6 stitches) until 2 stitches remain (= 30 times in total in width), finish with 2 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue pattern like this. When A.1a and A.2a has been worked 1 time in height, work A.1b above A.1a and work A.2b above A.2a. When all stitches have been increased in A.2, there are 575 stitches on needle.
Cast off as explained in diagram, cast off with 1 needle size bigger if the cast-off edges are tight.


= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= knit from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 2 stitches together, pass slipped stitch over stitches worked together
= cast off 1 stitch
= cast off 1 stitch, make 1 yarn over, cast off yarn over, this is done to avoid a tight cast-off edge

Merci de tout mon coeur pour vos efforts et explications

Bonjour, je souhaiterais tricoter le châle Majesty, mais de manière à ce qu'il soit réversible. Je ne suis pas très calée, alors je me demandais : est-ce qu'il suffit de tricoter les rangs envers à l'endroit, ou faut-il adapter également d'autres points ? Et le rendu de la dentelle peut-il ressortir aussi joliment sur du point mousse que sur le jersey ?

DROPS Design 08.01.2019 kl. 08:15:

Bonjour Fleur, tricoter les différents diagrammes entièrement au point mousse donnera un résultat différent, et consommera également davantage de laine. L'idéal serait pour vous de tricoter un échantillon afin de regarder si le résultat vous convient et/ou comment vous pouvez l'ajuster si besoin. Bon tricot!

Commen tricoter une jeté sans crée de trou comme indiqué dur les explications.\\r\\nModele 187-23

DROPS Design 15.10.2018 kl. 11:14:

Bonjour Asmaa, cette vidéo montre comment faire un jeté et le tricoter au rang suivant normalement (= pour qu'il forme un trou) ou torse (pour qu'il ne forme pas de trou). Bon tricot!

Ok I redid the rows and it is not right. I think if you do the increase row then repeat that row with out the increase this might balance it all out. I want to send a picture but I can’t. I still think the pattern does need to be modified. I’m not sure if any one else noticed this. Cheers.

Brenda 13.08.2018 - 15:55:

Hi, I am making this shawl and the Y/O lines do not connect properly as in the picture. When there is an increase row the Y/O’s do not connect to make an flowing line across the shawl. I think,..The Y/O must be done a stitch earlier on the increase row.

Hallo, ich komme mit der Strickschrift klar, A1a und A2a , muss die A2a bis hoch gestrickt werden? Ab Reihe 7 habe ich entweder eine M.zu viel oder zu wenig, mein Muster sieht auch nicht so aus wie auf dem Bild

DROPS Design 17.07.2018 kl. 14:56:

Liebe Linda, A.1a wird nur am Anfang der Hinreihe (= ende der Rückreihe) gestrickt, A.2a wird in der breite wiederholt. In jedem A.2a sollen Sie bei der 3. Reihe 2 Maschen zunehmen (= A.2a is jetzt 8 Maschen). Dann wird es bei der 11. Reihe nochmal 2 Maschen zugenommen (= 8 Maschen) und sw. Beachten Sie, ob Sie bie Reihe 6 immer noch 6 M in jedem A.2 haben (Markierer zwischen jedem Diagram kann damit helfen, die Maschenanzahl zu prüfen). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Leslie Lees 16.06.2018 - 00:51:

The math for the cast on has to be wrong. Why would the centre stitches have YO inc. when a make 1 would close the hole. 55 stitches between markers when only 2 are placed at CO (3 sts. in). Is it supposed to be 55 sts. on either side of the centre stitch. I'm already frustrated. Are there any more typos in this pattern? Unfortunately all the comments below are not in english so I'm just lost. Why can't a company like drops post a pattern that is correct?

DROPS Design 17.06.2018 kl. 06:03:

Dear Leslie, all increasing are by YO because it is the easiest way how to do it and it goes very well with garter st. In this pattern we do not work with centre stitch, but with centre panel of 55 sts - so we have 55 sts between markers and you have to increase in each outside of this centre 55 sts. Happy knitting!

Ik ben bezig met deze omslagdoek. Klopt het dat na de eerste 62 naalden, en het patroon begint, er geen omslag meer na de 2 recht aan het begin (en eind) komt??

DROPS Design 31.05.2018 kl. 15:29:

Hallo Hanny, Ja, dat kopt, na de 62 naalden hoef je die omslagen aan het begin niet mer te maken. De meerderingen zijn dan in de telpatronen verwerkt.

Jeg får det ikke helt til å stemme med opplegget og merkene ?

DROPS Design 16.03.2018 kl. 15:32:

Hej Haidi, vil du skrive mere konkret hvad du ikke får til at stemme? Du kan prøve at sætte et mærke imellem hver rapport, så bliver det tydligere hvornår du starter forfra i rapporten. God fornøjelse!
