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.

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

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

The piece is worked back and forth on circular needle so that there is room for all the stitches. It is worked sideways, while increasing and decreasing.

Cast on 3 stitches with circular needle size 5 mm and Merino Extra Fine or Sky and knit 1 row from the wrong side. Then work back and forth according to diagram A.1. When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height there are 17 stitches on the needle.
Then work as follows: A.2A over 4 stitches, A.2B over 6 stitches and A.2C over 7 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When A.2 has been worked 1 time in height there are 23 stitches on the needle.
Then repeat the 12 rows in A.2 as follows: A.2A over 4 stitches, repeat A.2B until there are 7 stitches left on the row and A.2C over 7 stitches.
Every time diagram A.2 is worked in height you work 1 more repeat of A.2B between A.2A and A.2C. Continue working like this until there are 191 stitches on the needle. On the next row from the right side, cast off with knit; use double strand and cast off loosely. Cut and fasten the strands.


= knit from right side, purl from wrong side
= purl from right side, knit from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over, the yarn over is knitted/purled on next row (there will be holes)
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over, the yarn over is knitted/purled twisted on next row (there will not be holes)
= knit 2 together

I've started making this. How do I make the point on the other end? I have the first point from A1, and if I continue only with A2, how do I get the other end to become a point?

Dear Elly, the shawl is worked sideways, with increases in A.2C (end of row, seen from RS): you work A.2 as follows: start with A.2A from RS, repeat A.2B and finish row with A.2C - inserting markers between diagrams can help. After you have worked A.2 one time in height, repeat diagrams the same way: A.2A, repeat A.2B (there will be one more repeat in width than for the previous repeat in height), and finish with A.2C. Happy knitting!

Liebes Drops Team, eine weitere Verständnisfrage, um sicher zu gehen. In der Anleitung steht: Wie folgt weiterstricken: A.2A über 4 Maschen, A.2B über 6 Maschen und A.2C über 7 Maschen. Das bedeutet, dass ich in der Rückreiche dann umgekehrte Reihenfolge stricke, also A2C, A2B und dann am Ende A2A - richtig?

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 10:57:

Liebe Nadine, ja genau, bei den Rückreihen stricken Sie A.2C, A.2B und A.2A, die Reihen lesen Sie dann links nach rechts. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Nadine 28.02.2019 - 18:19:

Liebes Drops Team, wie stricke ich denn A2.A über 4 Maschen, wenn im Diagramm nur drei bzw zwei gezeigt sind?

DROPS Design 01.03.2019 kl. 09:44:

Liebe Nadine, die erste Reihe in A.2A wird über 4 Maschen gestrickt, dann bei der 3. Reihe nehmen Sie 1 Masche ab, A.2A wird dann über die 3 nächsten Reihe gestrickt (dann über 2 Maschen, und endlich gibt es nur 1 Masche bei der letzte Reihe). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Jestem poczatkujaca w robieniu na drutach. Nie do konca rozumiem ten schemat. Czy po prawej stronie robotki mam wykonywac oczka prawe (kratki puste) a po lewej zwykle oczka lewe (kratki z minusem)? Z gory dziekuje za podpowiedz.

DROPS Design 13.08.2018 kl. 13:02:

Witaj Doroto! Kratki puste = 1 oczko prawe na prawej stronie robótki, oczko lewe na lewej stronie robótki (rzędy nieparzyste schematu znajdują się na prawej stronie robótki). Kratki z minusem = 1 oczko lewe na prawej stronie robótki, oczko prawe na lewej stronie robótki (lewą stronę robótki stanowią rzędy parzyste schematu). Powodzenia!

Bonjour, Pouvez-vous me faire parvenir les explication du modèle Innocent. j'ai un souci avec mon imprimante. Vous serait-il possible de le joindre à la laine que j'ai commandé. D'avance merci. Cordialement

DROPS Design 22.05.2018 kl. 08:37:

Bonjour Mme Camus, n'hésitez pas à vous adresser directement auprès du magasin où vous avez acheté votre laine - vous retrouverez ces coordonnées dans la liste. Bon tricot!

Hallo liebes Drops Team, wo ist denn das im Text erwähnte Diagramm A3 zu finden? Und würde es nicht mehr Sinn machen ab 191 Maschen mit der Abnahme zu beginnen, anstatt abzuketten? Freundliche Grüße

DROPS Design 07.05.2018 kl. 08:47:

Liebe Richtet, danke für den Hinweis, es sieht so aus, daß keine A.3 gestrickt wird sondern nur A.1 und A.2 A., B und C, unser Designteam wird mal schauen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
