At beginning of every row with double crochets replace first double crochet with 3 chain stitches. Finish row with 1 double crochet in 3rd or 2nd chain stitch from beginning of previous row (depending on whether previous round began with 3 or 2 chain stitches).
On every row with single crochets replace first single crochet with 2 chain stitches. Finish row with 1 single crochet in 3rd or 2nd chain stitch from beginning of previous row.

To get a nice transition when switching color work last yarn over and pull through on last stitch before switching color with the new color, then continue with the new color.

To avoid sewing many strands after color change work the first 2 double crochets/single crochets at beginning of every row with new color with double yarn (in the same color). This is done as follows: Make sure to leave a long yarn end (approx. 20-25 cm) when switching color, work yarn end together with strand from ball. Then place yarn end along stitches from previous row and work around it so that the yarn end is hidden inside the stitches. In addition should the yarn end left at the end of row also be placed along the stitches when turning the piece to work around this yarn end as well. The way the strands are fastened without using a needle.

Worked back and forth with stripes and lace pattern.
Work 173 chain stitches on hook SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 with spray blue. Work 1 double crochet in 4th chain stitch from hook, 1 double crochet in next chain stitch, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in each of the next 3 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 129 double crochets.
Read CROCHET INFO, COLOR CHANGE TIP AND TIP FOR FASTENING STRANDS! Then work STRIPES - see explanation above, AT THE SAME TIME work pattern as explained below:
First row (work with spray blue): Work A.1A (= 2 stitches), work A.1B over the next 120 stitches (= 20 repetition of 6 stitches), work A.1C (= 7 stitches). Continue with stripes and pattern like this. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
When A.1 has been worked, continue as follows: * Work A.2A, A.2B and A.2C the same way. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.3A, A.3B and A.3C the same way *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total vertically, but last time A.3 is worked, finish after row 30.
Then work last row as follows with spray blue: 1 double crochet in each of the first 2 double crochet, work 3 double crochets around every chain space the entire row and finish with 1 double crochet in last double crochet. Fasten off. Blanket measures approx. 100 x 130 cm.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Hej. Har i et godt på et alternativt garn til dette tæppe, hvor man kan få tilsvarende farver? Jeg tænker ikke ren uld, men måske et blandingsprodukt eller evt. akryl. Prismæssigt gør det ikke noget hvis det bliver en smule dyrere, men det må da stadig gerne ligge i det leje i beskriver for dette produkt :-) Venlig hilsen Grethe

Hei Grethe. Om du ikke vil ha 100% ull eller ull-alpaca balnding kna du feks se på Air eller Brushed Alpaca silk. Vær obs på at de begge har en ganske annerledes struktur enn Paris (Air er et veldig luftig garn, mens Brushed Alpaca Silk er et børste garn og derfor "hårete"). God fornøyelse

Vi ringrazio per aver messo gli schemi, che trovo molto più semplici da seguire rispetto alle descrizioni,purtroppo però non riesco a trovare nella legenda alcuni simboli presenti nello schema, tipo l’ellisse tutto nero. Inoltre nella legenda compare per 3 volte un quadratino vuoto con 3 significati diversi. Potreste per cortesia dirmi a quali simboli corrispondono. Grazie.

DROPS Design 30.08.2018 kl. 18:44:

Buonasera Federica.L’ellisse nero corrisponde a 3 maglie alte lavorate insieme in una maglia alta. Per gli altri simboli, potrebbero essere un problema di visualizzazione del suo browser. Verifichi che non ci siano aggiornamenti da installare oppure provi a svuotare la cache o a navigare con un browser diverso. Buon lavoro!

Questa coperta é bellissima. Vorrei farla di dimensioni maggiori 130x170. Potreste indicarmi le quantità di filato necessarie? Grazie mille!
