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 to A.6. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

Worked back and forth. Cast on 108-170 stitches on circular needle size 3 mm with BabyMerino. Work 3 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Then work as follows from right side:
Work 3 stitches in garter stitch, 3-4 stitches in stocking stitch, * A.1 (= 14 stitches), A.2 (= 8 stitches) over 16 stitches (= 2 times in width) *, work from *-* 1-2 times in total, A.1 over 14 stitches, A.2 over 8 stitches, A.1 over 14 stitches, * A.2 over 16 stitches (= 2 times in width), A.1 over 14 stitches *, work from *-* 1-2 times in total and finish with 3-4 stitches in stocking stitch and 3 stitches in garter stitch.
When A.1 and A.2 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 126-200 stitches on needle. Continue in garter stitch and stocking stitch and work A.3 over every A.1 and A.4 over every A.2. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 48-78 cm, adjust to finish on 1st-6th row in A.4. Now work A.5 over every A.3 and A.6 over every A.4. When A.5 and A.6 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 108-170 stitches on needle. Work 3 ridges. Cast off.

Hur stickar jag alla aviga varv? Enl mönstret eller räta på räta o aviga på aviga?

DROPS Design 15.01.2019 kl. 13:58:

Hej, diagrammet visar alla varv sett från rätsidan. Du stickar alltså räta över räta och aviga över aviga på varv från avigsidan.

Hej Ska man avsluta filten med varv 1-6 i diagrammet eller något av dessa varv anpassat till att få lika som början av filten ?

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 11:06:

Hei Carina. Så lenge du avslutter mellom 1 og 6 omgang i A.4 blir det riktig, og mønsteret blir ikke avbrutt. Om du vil ha begge ender av teppet likt kan du avslutte etter omgang 6. God fornøyelse

In plaats van deze prachtige baby-deken, wil ik van dit patroon een grotere woonplaid maken. Een mooie uitdagende klus voor de komende wintermaanden. Dus wellicht drie drie stroken breien met elk een hoogte van plm 190cm. Hoe kan ik er dan voor zorgen dat er twee zo goed als onzichtbare naden komen? Uw idee wacht ik met heel veel belangstelling af. Alvast dank!

Dag Loes,

Het is voor ons helaas niet mogelijk om hulp te geven bij individuele aanpassingen, maar je zou eens kunnen kijken bij de breivideo's over het in elkaar naaien. Misschien is het mogelijk om alle steken op een lange rondbreinaald te houden, of evt. 2 rondrbeinaalden te gebruiken?

Carina Andersson 30.10.2018 - 08:42:

På diagram A1 varv 1: är det 7 räta maskor, ett omslag, 1 rät maska, ett omslag, och 6 räta maskor, stämmer det ?

DROPS Design 30.10.2018 kl. 09:09:

Hei Carina. Ja, det er helt riktig. God fornøyelse.

Näköjään virhe on tässä mallissa korjattu. Sen, minkä tulostin 18.9. tuo kohta oli väärin vielä. t. Liisa

Liisa Pelkonen 30.09.2018 - 17:14:

Hei ruutupiirros A3 ei voi olla oikein. Sen mukaan joka toisella kierroksella neulotaan 2 yhteen, mutta ei sanota miten joka toisella siina on kuitenkin 2 silmukkaa.\r\nT. Liisa

DROPS Design 01.10.2018 kl. 17:42:

Hei, piirroksessa A.3 ei kavenneta silmukoita. Siinä tehdään ainoastaan palmikonkiertoja.

Terry B 29.09.2018 - 19:30:

It’s a lovely pattern and I love cables, but I have a problem with charts. I need a written pattern. Any chance?

DROPS Design 30.09.2018 kl. 08:42:

Dear Terry, unfortunately we cannot provide written out patterns, however there are tutorial videos (you can find the links on the left sid of the page, just under the picture) and lessons to help you along. Also you can always ask for personal help in the store you bought your DROPS yarn from. Happy Knitting!

Noel Kerns 14.09.2018 - 20:43:

I can’t read the comments. I speak English. Is there important information I need to know about making the blanket included in the comments?

DROPS Design 17.09.2018 kl. 08:03:

Dear Mrs Kerns, you are welcome to use any online translator to translate one by one all comments/questions & answers to this pattern. Or simply read the pattern and feel free to ask your question at any time there. Happy knitting!

JEANNE SERRANO-LEBRUN 12.09.2018 - 13:47:

Bonjour, Je suis en train de réalisée cette couverture et après plusieurs petites erreurs, je vous conseille de prendre un calepin pour noter l'enchaînement des motifs A1 A2 sur les 2 premiers rangs puis A4 et A3 sur les rang. suivants. Cela est plus facile car au départ si l'on inverse on doit redefaire. En notant c'est plus simple de savoir où l'on en est et après le motif va de soi.

Daria Manganaro 13.08.2018 - 11:08:

Scusatemi, sono una principiante e sto davvero facendo fatica a capire, le 3 coste a legaccio corrispondono a 6 ferri a dritto, finito l'ultimo ferro a dritto, se giro il lavoro, l'ultima fila è a rovescio....giusto? Da qui la prima fila di a1 e a2 mi dice di lavorare diritto su diritto e rovescio su rovescio, quindi dovrei lavorare rovescio. Non sto capendo. Grazie mille

DROPS Design 13.08.2018 kl. 11:57:

Buongiorno Daria, abbiamo leggermente modificato il testo. È corretto, se gira il lavoro dopo i 6 ferri a diritto si troverà sotto un ferro a rovescio, ma ora si trova sul diritto del lavoro e deve iniziare a lavorare i diagrammi come indicato. Provi a guardare la legenda e vedere se adesso è più chiaro: il diritto e rovescio a cui fare riferimento sono il diritto e rovescio del lavoro, non le maglie del ferro precedente. Buon lavoro!
