EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

-------------------------------------------------------

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
All rows are knitted (1 ridge = knit 2 rows).

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagram A.1 shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side. Diagram A.1 is read from left to right on all rows from the wrong side. All rows from the right side are read from right to left.
Diagram A.2 shows the leaves as well as the knitting direction and order of rows.

COLOUR SUGGESTION:
To mix and change the pattern of colours while you work, you can change balls or use yarn from the other end of the ball each time you start a new row of leaves. Change colour before each START-ROW 1 and START-ROW 2 are worked.

STOLE - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle; from the one corner, diagonally upwards in rows with different numbers of leaves.
Short rows are worked over one leaf at a time. The whole piece is worked in GARTER STITCH – read description above. Markers are used, inserted between and in the middle of leaves as you work. The markers are on the needle and will follow your work upwards. They make it easier to see where the leaves are to be worked. Read also COLOUR SUGGESTION in description above.

STOLE:
Cast on 36 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and Delight. Then work as follows:

ROW 1: Work LEAF A as follows:

LEAF A:
Work diagram A.1; the first row in the diagram is from the wrong side – read description above under pattern. Work the diagram 1 time in height = 1 leaf. The first row of leaves is now finished, turn the piece.
In the transition between rows 1 and 2 with leaves, work START-ROW 1 as follows:

START-ROW 1:
From the right side: Cast off the first 18 stitches with knit, knit 18 stitches. Turn the piece, knit 18 stitches, insert 1 marker on the needle here and cast on 18 new stitches at the end of the row from the wrong side. Turn the piece and knit to end of row from the right side, insert a marker on the needle here. Cast on 36 new stitches at the end of the row. Now you are ready to work the next row of leaves. Turn the piece.

ROW 2. Work LEAVES B, C and D as follows:

LEAF B:
Work diagram A.1 over the first 36 stitches on the needle (as far as the first marker seen from the wrong side). Work the diagram 1 time in height (you have now worked as far as the same marker again). Turn the piece, knit 36 stitches from the right side. Turn the piece, knit 18 stitches from the wrong side, insert 1 marker on the needle here, do not turn the piece; the next leaf is worked over the next 36 stitches.

LEAF C:
Work diagram A.1 over the next 36 stitches on the needle (past one marker and as far as the next). Work the diagram 1 time in height. Turn the piece and knit 36 stitches from the right side. Turn the piece, knit 18 stitches from the wrong side (as far as the marker in the middle of the leaf), do not turn the piece; the next leaf is worked over the next 36 stitches.

Work diagram A.1 over the last 36 stitches on the needle (past the last marker and to end of row). Work the diagram 1 time in height. You have now worked 3 leaves and 2 rows of leaves are finished.

Bonjour, mes feuilles sont bombées au milieu, alors que sur le modèle, elles paraissent plates Pouvez me dire où est mon erreur? Merci

Bonjour Mp54, il est possible que vous vous soyez trompée dans les rangs raccourcis de ces feuilles, quand elles sont terminées, elles doivent être toutes plates. N'hésitez pas à montrer votre ouvrage (même en photo par mail) à votre magasin, il lui sera plus facile de vous aider. Bon tricot!

Eine sehr schöne Anleitung, die ich schon zweimal mit der angegebenen Wolle gestrickt habe. Leider benötigte ich bei jeder Version etwas mehr als 250 g Wolle.

Zaza 22.10.2018 - 12:11:

Ein sehr schönes Tuch! Eine total kurzweilige Strickweise, da man meist nur über 16 bis 18 Maschen strickt. So können das auch meine Rheumahände noch schaffen. Ich hab meine Sockenwollreste verstrick, 6 zusammenpassende Farben (4mal uni,2mal für Mustersocken), bei jedem Blatt ein Farbwechsel. Ich hab das Tuch um eine Reihe verbreitert. Das erste Stück seit langem, mit dem ich selbst zufrieden bin. Danke für diese TOLLE Anleitung

Hej Tina, vi har lige prøvet at skrive den ud og det gik helt fint. Lav en restart og prøv igen. God fornøjelse!

Striking!! A real attention grabber!

Super flot men ærgeligt jeg ikke kan strikke den for kan ikke strikke efter diagram

Jessica 24.07.2018 - 16:02:

Hi! Are we working short rows on the end of each row, for example I knit 18 for row 2, then wrap and turn, then do I knit 16 for row 3 and wrap and turn again?

DROPS Design 24.07.2018 kl. 16:10:

Dear Jessica, there is no wrap and turn, just turn without wrap in the short rows to create holes in the middle of the leaf. On row 2, you knit 18 sts from RS, turn and K 16 sts from RS (row 3), then turn and work 18 sts from RS, turn and work 16 sts from WS and so on until row 20 & 21 (= K18 sts both from RS and from WS), then work *16 sts from RS, 18 sts from WS*, repeat from *-* until you reach the marker. Happy knitting!

Pirkko Vega 22.07.2018 - 21:19:

Is the first cast off tail of 18 stitches used later somewhere?

DROPS Design 23.07.2018 kl. 08:22:

Dear Mrs Pirkko, the 18 sts cast on under START-ROW-1 will be worked at the end of next row, ie they belog to the last leave on row, seen from RS. Happy knitting!
