INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.
----------------------------------------------------------

SHAWL:
The shawl is worked top down. Work back and forth on circular needle so that you have room for all the stitches.

Cast on 7 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm and peach pink.
Work as follows from the right side: Knit 1 stitch, * 1 yarn over, knit1 stitch *, repeat from *-* a total of 6 times = 13 stitches. Knit 1 row from the wrong side. Now insert 6 marker threads in the piece without working the stitches, the marker threads are inserted in the stitches and follow your work upwards. Insert the marker threads in the following stitches: Stitch 2, stitch 4, stitch 6, stitch 8, stitch 10 and stitch 12.

Then work and increase as follows:
Knit 1 row and increase by making a yarn over before each stitch with a marker thread = 6 yarn overs.
NOTE! All yarn overs are then knitted to leave holes.
Knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side (without increasing) and knit 1 row from the wrong side = 19 stitches.
Knit 1 row and increase by making a yarn over after each stitch with a marker thread = 6 yarn overs.
Knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side (without increasing) and knit 1 row from the wrong side = 25 stitches.
Knit 1 row and increase by making a yarn over before each stitch with a marker thread = 6 yarn overs.
Knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side (without increasing) and knit 1 row from the wrong side = 31 stitches.
Knit 1 row and increase by making a yarn over after each stitch with a marker thread = 6 yarn overs.
Knit 1 row from the wrong side, knit 1 row from the right side (without increasing) and knit 1 row from the wrong side = 37 stitches.

Continue with the same increases, but in addition, you will work short rows. Work as follows:
ROW 1 with short row (= right side): Knit 2 stitches, 1 yarn over and knit to first stitch with a marker thread on this row, turn and knit back from the wrong side. Then knit 1 row from the right side where you increase before/after the marker thread stitches.
ROW 2 with short row (= wrong side): Knit 2 stitches, 1 yarn over and knit to first stitch with a marker thread on this row, turn and knit back from the right side. Then knit 1 row from the wrong side = a total of 8 stitches increased on rows 1-2.
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Knit.

Continue by repeating rows 1-4 (increase alternately before and after the marker thread stitches as before) until the piece measures approx. 35 cm (rows 1-4 have been worked a total of 30 times) and there are 277 stitches on the needle.

Now work stripes with off white and peach pink as follows: * Change to off white and work rows 1 and 2 (with short rows). Change to peach pink and work rows 3 and 4 *. Repeat from *-* until the piece measures approx. 51 cm (rows 1-4 are worked with stripes a total of 16 times) and there are 405 stitches on the needle.
From here, work with off white to finished length.
Repeat rows 1-2 one more time = 413 stitches on needle.
Work 1 RIDGE - see description above, and increase 10 stitches evenly on the first row of these ridges as follows: Knit 22 stitches, * 1 yarn over, knit 41 stitches *, repeat from *-* a total of 9 times and make 1 yarn over and knit 22 stitches. Knit 1 row where all yarn overs are knitted twisted = 423 stitches (the number of stitches is divisible by 22 + 5 stitches).

Now continue working according to diagram A.1 with off white and stocking stitch. (Row 1 = right side): Work 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, work A.1 over the next 418 stitches (= 19 times in width and there are 3 stitches left on the row), work 1 stitch stocking stitch and 2 edge stitches in garter stitch. Work the diagram like this 1 time in height. The piece measures approx. 63 cm and there are 537 stitches on the needle.

CASTING OFF:
On the next row from the right side, you will cast off with i-cord casting off. It is important that the edge is cast off loosely so that the shawl has a nice shape and hangs neatly. You can use a larger needle size to cast off if necessary and make sure that all stitches are loose.
Work and cast off as follows: * Knit 2 stitches, the next 2 stitches are knitted twisted together. Push the 3 stitches from the right needle back onto the left needle (in the same order) *, repeat from *-* until all stitches on the left needle have been cast off and there are 3 stitches left on the right needle.
Push the stitches onto the left needle and cast them off with knit. Cut the strand and sew together the cast-off from the last 3 stitches so that the end of the shawl is neat. Fasten all loose strands.

Diagram

= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over, purl the yarn over on the next row to leave a hole
= knit 2 stitches together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 stitch and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= slip 2 stitches as if to knit them together, knit 1 stitch and pass the 2 slipped stitches over the knitted stitch

Hallo! Hübsch, aber wo sind denn die Häkelanleitungen aus dem Heft 190, ich würde nämlich gerne das Titelbild nacharbeiten. Ich weiß klingt ein bisschen unverschämt, wo ihr so viele tolle und kostenlose Anleitungen habt. Über eine Antwort würde ich mich sehr freuen. LG Andrea

Liebe Andrea, alle Anleitungen der Summer Kollektion sind noch nicht hochgeladen, dh neue Anleitungen kommen noch :)

Heike 24.03.2018 - 17:21:

Hallo, wie wird der Markierungsfaden denn mitgeführt? Das ist mir nicht klar. Oder kann man auch Maschenmarkierer zwischen den Maschen nutzen?

DROPS Design 02.04.2018 kl. 10:00:

Liebe Heike, ja Sie können auch einen Maschenmarkierer benutzen, das bleibe Ihnen überlassen. Ein Markierungsfaden ist die einfachste Methode - einfach ein Stückchen kontrastfarbenen Faden nehmen, zwischen die Maschen hängen und nach jeder gestrickten Reihe um eine Reihe nach oben versetzen.
