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.
INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

MOSS STITCH:
ROW 1: * knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-*.
ROW 2: knit over purl and purl over knit.
Repeat ROW 2 onwards.

STRAND CHANGE:
Every time you change colours after a stripe, leave 25 cm of yarn end, which will then be used to make the fringe. It is therefore important to leave a long end at both the beginning and end of each stripe.
If you change balls in the middle of a stripe, you can splice the ends together to avoid having to fasten the ends. Divide the outermost 10 cm at the end of the new and old strand, dampen and twist them together between your hands (= lightly felted strands).

STRIPE PATTERN:
Work 2 rows moss stitch on each stripe. The stripes are in the following colours:
STRIPE 1: 2 strands light blue
STRIPE 2: 1 strand light blue + 1 pastel blue
STRIPE 3: 2 strands pastel blue
STRIPE 4: 1 strand pastel blue + 1 strand off white

BLANKET:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle, to give you room for all the stitches. Cast on 78 stitches with circular needle size 20 mm and 2 strands light blue, leave a strand end of 25 cm (these will be used to make the fringe later). Then work MOSS STITCH and STRIPES - see description above and read STRAND CHANGE. When stripe 49 has been completed, cut both strands (so there will be enough strands for the fringe). Change to 1 new strand pastel pink and 1 strand pastel blue and loosely cast off with knit from the right side. Cut the strands and fasten them at this end of the piece. You now have a total of 102 strands of 25 cm on the other side of the piece for the fringe.

FRINGE:
The strands in the side are plaited together. Start in the one end; tie the strands together 2 and 2 along the whole side with double knots. Then use 6 strands in each plait. Lay the strands in 3 groups of 2 strands and plait them loosely together. When the plait measures approx. 14 cm, tie a knot in the end. Plait all strands in this way (= 17 plaits) and then trim the ends so that they are all the same length.

Hallo Drops Design, ich möchte die Decke in einer anderen Größe stricken (170 cm/ 150cm) die doppelte Garnmenge ist vermutlich zu viel.

Blir dette teppet veldig tykt og stivt?

DROPS Design 03.05.2018 kl. 14:48:

Hej Jorunn, Tæppet bliver tykt og dejligt, sørg for at overholde strikkefastheden så du ikke strikker det for stramt. God fornøjelse!

This is really pretty but since it cannot be made in a machine-washable yarn like Karisma it´s not for me. Both Eskimo and Polaris (mentioned as alternative) are great at felting so I would never try anything else but hand washing. But as most wool it really gets heavy when wet and I´m not sure I can handle it properly. Perhaps I´ll try my luck converting this to Karisma because I like the idea.

Hello! How should I wash this blanket?

DROPS Design 12.02.2018 kl. 14:20:

Dear Elvira, you will find all washing instructions on the label of the yarn, on the shadecard and find here some standard instructions. Your DROPS store will assist you for any individual assistance, even per mail, telephone or on social medias. Happy knitting!
