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.

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

* 2 rows with pink dream, 2 rows with sea mist *, work from *-* to finished length.

The outermost stitch along the straight side of the shawl (at the beginning of the row from the right side and the end of the row from the wrong side) is worked with 1 strand of each colour (= 2 strands) to finished length.

The piece is worked back and forth on the needle and worked from side to side. The whole shawl is worked in GARTER STITCH and STRIPES – see descriptions above.

Cast on 6 stitches with needle size 3.5 mm and pink dream. Insert 1 marker thread after the first 2 stitches on the row (seen from the right side) and work as follows – read KNITTING TIP and allow the marker thread to follow your work upwards on the inside of the picot edge:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit.
ROW 3 (= right side): Change colour and knit until there are 4 stitches left on the row, knit 2 together, make 2 yarn overs and then work 2 stitches in each of the next 2 stitches on the needle (work 2 stitches in the same stitch by working in both the front and back loop of the stitch) = 2 stitches increased.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Slip the first stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over, knit 1, pass the back stitch on the right needle over the front stitch (= 2 stitches decreased), knit 1, drop the 1 yarn over, knit the other yarn over and knit to end of row. Change colour on next row.
Repeat rows 1-4.

AT THE SAME TIME on row 9 increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over just before the marker thread. On the next row knit the yarn over to leave a hole. Repeat the increase every 6th row upwards – always increase before the marker thread so that there are more and more garter stitches on the right side of the marker thread (seen from the right side). When you have a total of 54 stitches before the marker thread (i.e. a total of 58-60 stitches depending on the picot edge), the piece measures approx. 70 cm along the straight edge.
Work 8 rows without increasing, but on row 5 work as follows before the marker thread: Knit 2 together, make 1 yarn over – this is done to maintain the row of holes along the edge even though the increases have finished. On the next row from the right side after the 8 rows without increases, decrease 1 stitch before the marker thread as follows: Start 3 stitches before the marker thread, knit 3 together and make 1 yarn over. Repeat the decrease every 6th row until there are only 2 stitches left before the marker thread (seen from the right side). Work 8 rows as before without decreasing and then cast off all stitches. The shawl measures approx. 143 cm from corner to corner.
Cut and fasten the strands.

J’aimerais savoir la diminution au 6 rang est-il toujours sur le même rang ou sur deux rangs différents. Je tricote avec une seul balle est ce que mon côté droit devrait être tricoter différemment. Merci ā l’avance et bonne journée Chantal

Bonjour Chantal, quand vous diminuez tous les 6 rangs, ce rang de diminutions sera toujours du même côté: diminuez 1 rang, tricotez 5 rangs sans diminuer et répéter ces 6 rangs. Bon tricot!

Ich würde dieses Tuch so wie es ist(Muster/Wolle) gerne etwas größer machen, praktisch doppelt, wie mache ich das mit der Maschenangabe? Mit freundlichen Grüßen Conny Julien

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, ich kann folgendes nicht verstehen:"3. REIHE " Wenn ich stricke bis noch 4 Maschen übrig sind und davon 2 Maschen rechts zusammenstricke, habe ich noch 2 Maschen überig, soll aber 2 Umschläge stricken und aus den zwei letzten Maschen jeweils 2 Maschen rausstricken. Wo stricke ich dann aber die beiden Umschläge ab? Danke für Ihre Hilfe und mfg.
