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.

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
All rows are knitted.




The piece is worked back and forth, top down with circular needle and GARTER STITCH – read description above. The yarn overs are knitted so that you leave holes when increasing.

Cast on 9 stitches with 1 strand of each colour (= 2 strands) and circular needle size 7 mm. 
Then work as follows: 
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 3, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 3, 1 yarn over and knit 1 = 13 stitches. Insert a marker thread in the middle stitch. 
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit until there is 1 stitch left on the row, 1 yarn over and knit 1 = 2 stitches increased. 
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit as far as the stitch with the marker thread, 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= mid-stitch), 1 yarn over, knit until there is 1 stitch left, 1 yarn over and knit 1 = 4 stitches increased. 

Repeat rows 2 and 3 onwards until the piece measures approx. 40 cm measured along the mid-stitch, or to desired length. Adjust so that the next row is from the right side.

Change to 2 strands jeans blue and loosely cast off from the right side as follows:
Knit 1, * insert the right needle in between the first 2 stitches on the left needle (i.e. between the stitches not through the stitches), make 1 yarn over the right needle, pull the yarn over out through the stitches and place it on the left needle *, work from *-* a total of 3 times (= 3 new stitches on the left needle), knit and cast off 6 stitches (= first stitch on right needle + 3 yarn overs + 2 stitches). Now continue working from *-* and cast off 6 stitches in the same way along the whole cast-off edge. When there are too few stitches left to work another picot, cast off the remaining stitches. Cut the strands and pull them through the last stitch. Fasten the strands.

Bonsoir, Il y a quelque chose que je ne comprends pas bien. Je viens de commencer ce modèle et j'ai bien l'impression que la bordure picot des photos se trouve au niveau des lisières de mon tricot. Je ne comprends donc pas bien comment je pourrais obtenir les picots au bon endroit au moment de rabattre... Ai-je mal démarré ? Merci !

Bonjour Claire, ce modèle se tricote de haut en bas, au point mousse, on va rabattre les mailles pour qu'elles forment une bordure picot ainsi - cf vidéo avec le texte en français - cette vidéo montre la technique, rabattez bien les mailles comme indiqué sous ce modèle pour obtenir le même effet. Bon tricot!

Lorsqu’une aiguille circulaire no 7 est requise, est-ce que ça signifie grosseur 7 mm? Merci!

DROPS Design 06.09.2018 kl. 08:07:

Bonjour Francine, tout à fait, c'est le système métrique qui est indiqué pour la taille des aiguilles dans les explications en français. Bon tricot!

Bonjour, Où est indiqué le nombre de pelotes nécessaire pour réaliser ce châle svp ? Merci

DROPS Design 20.08.2018 kl. 21:36:

Bonsoir! Il vous faut 50 g coloris 27, bleu jeans (2 pelotes) et 50 g coloris 28, bleu marine (2 pelotes). Au total 4 pelotes pour ce chale. Bon travail!

Bonjour, Je lis vos explications et je ne comprends pas comment commencer ! Faut il faire une maille bleu jean et la seconde bleu marine ? et ainsi de suite .... ou faut il avoir les 2 fils sur la même maille ? Merci

DROPS Design 01.08.2018 kl. 08:40:

Bonjour Mc, le châle se tricote entièrement avec un fil de chaque couleur: 1 fil bleu jeans et 1 fil bleu marine. Tricotez les 2 fils ensemble comme s'il n'y en avait qu'un seul. Bon tricot!
