Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.

See diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

The cloths are worked back and forth in 6 different colors.

Cast on 49 stitches with needle size 3 mm / US 2.5 and Paris. Knit 5 rows.
Then work according to diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3 as follows:
From the right side, the diagrams are read from right to left and worked as follows: A.1 over the first 4 stitches, repeat A.2 over the next 42 stitches and A.3 over the last 3 stitches.
From the wrong side, the diagrams are read from left to right and worked as follows:
A.3 over the first 3 stitches, repeat A.2 over the next 42 stitches and A.1 over the last 4 stitches.
Continue to work according to the diagrams in this way until the piece measures approx. 21 cm/ 8 1/4" (approx. 10 repeats in height); adjust so that you finish after a whole repeat and make sure that you have enough yarn to finish the cloth. Knit 5 rows and bind off with knit on the next row. Cut and fasten the strand.

Work 1 cloth in each color.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= knit from right side, purl from wrong side
= purl from right side, knit from wrong side
= slip 1 stitch onto the right needle as if it to purl (but with the strand at the back of the piece)

Ik had dit doekje in mijn favorieten geplaatst. Maar ik kan mijn favorieten niet meer vinden. Is dit afgeschaft?

Good morning, to find the right muster in this relatively simple pattern takes really quite a longer time :-)

Hej drops design Er der ret og vrangside på den tyrkise klud, for det bliver ikke helt ens på begge sider. Venlig hilsen Britta Lund

Hei Britta. Det blir alltid en rettside og en vrangside, så den kommer ikke til å bli helt lik på begge sider. Men mønsteret er slik at om du overholder strikkefastheten det blir et pent mønster på begge sider. God fornøyelse

Was passiert mir dem Faden der hinter der Arbeit liegt ohne gestrickt zu sein? Die Rückreihen müssten m.E. entgegengesetzt der Hinreihe gestrickt werden, also linke Maschen von der Hinreihe rechts, sonst ergibt sich nicht das auf dem Foto abgebildete Muster. Das Diagramm der Rückreihe ist ggf. fehlerhaft.

Liebe Cornelia, die abgehobene Masche wird bei der Rückreihe links gestrickt. Beachten Sie, daß Ihre Maschenprobe stimmt, es wird hier eng gestrickt, damit die Strucktur sich wie im Foto (Muster ist im Foto umgedreht) herausbildet. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

I find it very difficult to read charts, do your patterns come with line by line instructions please and thank you.

Dear Gill, there is only diagram to this pattern: start reading diagram from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left from RS and from the left towards the right from WS. Work diagrams as follows: start with A.1 from RS (= 3 sts in garter st, slip 1 st as if to P), then repeat A.2 over the next 42 sts and finish with A.3 (= 3 sts in garter st). Happy knitting!

Sehr schön, endlich kein Frottee mehr. Ein Leinengarn passt hier bestimmt auch gut zu.
