EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

INCREASE IN ONE-COLORED GARTER STITCH SECTION:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Each row in the diagrams is equivalent to one row worked. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 261 stitches), minus the mid-stitch (= 1 stitch) and divide the remaining stitches by 2 = 130 stitches on each side of the mid-stitch. Then divide 130 stitches by the number of increases to be made before/after the mid-stitch (e.g. 3) = 43.3.
In this example, increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. each 43rd stitch before the mid-stitch. Increase in the same way after the mid-stitch. On the next row knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

CASTING-OFF TIP:
So that the bind-off edge is not tight you can make 1 yarn over AT THE SAME TIME as binding off. Make 1 yarn over above all the yarn overs from the previous row, the yarn overs are then bind off as normal stitches. Make sure that you do not tighten the strand while binding off.
If the bind-off edge is still tight, you can bind off with a size larger needle.

MOSAIC PATTERN:
See diagrams A.3 to A.11 and read description of the technique below.
Each row in these diagrams is equivalent to 2 rows worked. I.e. from the right side the diagram is worked from right to left with increases as shown in the diagrams and from the wrong side you work the same row from left to right, but without the increases (i.e. increases are only done from the right side).

On all rows from the right side, keep the strand at the back of the piece (i.e. on the wrong side) when a stitch is slipped.
On all rows from the wrong side, keep the strand in front of the piece (i.e. towards you and still on the wrong side) when a stitch is slipped.
Make sure the strands are not tight at the back of the piece!

To keep track of the pattern, you can insert a marker between each pattern-repeat on A.4B/A.5B.

A.3, A.6 and A.9 = start-stitch and end-stitch. This stitch is worked in the color shown by the symbol, AT THE SAME TIME the symbol tells you how the pattern row is worked in A.X, A.Y and A.Z.
A.X, A.Y and A.Z are sections which show the rows the mosaic pattern is worked on.
On the other rows in A.4/A.5, A.7/A.8 and A.10/A.11 (i.e. the one-colored rows) you work 1 ridge back and forth over all stitches without slipping stitches (mid-stitch always worked in stockinette stitch).

SECTION A.X:
On each row of the pattern in A.3 which has a square with a small, black square inside (i.e. color A), all stitches with color A in A.4 and A.5 are knitted and all stitches with color B are slipped.
On each row of pattern in A.3 which has a square with an empty star inside (color B), all stitches with color B in A.4 and A.5 are knitted and all stitches with color A are slipped.

SECTION A.Y:
On each row of pattern in A.6 which has a square with a small, black diamond inside (i.e. color C), all stitches with color C in A.7 and A.8 are knitted and all stitches with color D are slipped.
On each row of pattern in A.6 which has a square with a small, horizontal line inside (color D), all stitches with color D in A.7 and A.8 are knitted and all stitches with color C are slipped.

SECTION A.Z:
On this row of pattern in A.9 which starts with a square with a diagonal line inside (i.e. color E), all stitches with color E in A.10 and A.11 are knitted and all stitches with color A are slipped.

WAVE PATTERN:
See diagrams A.12 and A.13. Each row is equivalent to 1 row worked. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

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

SHAWL - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle (so that you have room for all stitches) and worked top down.
Always increase 1 stitch on each side of the mid-stitch and 2 stitches in each side of each row from the right side as described in the text (= 6 stitches increased on each increase row).
At the beginning of the shawl a section is worked in one-color garter stitch. Then you work mosaic pattern. To finish an edge is worked in wave pattern.
It is important to follow the diagrams carefully.
The mosaic pattern itself is worked in garter stitch, but the pattern is not worked in normal garter stitch - it is made by by slipping stitches. Read description for Mosaic pattern before working it. Be aware that each row in the diagrams for the mosaic pattern (A.3 to A.11) is equivalent to 1 ridge (i.e. 2 rows). In the other diagrams (A.1, A.2, A.12 and A.13) 1 row in the diagram = 1 row worked.

SHAWL:
Cast on 5 stitches with circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 and gray. The first 2 rows are worked as follows: 
ROW 1 (= right side): Work 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – read description above, 1 yarn over, 1 stitch in stockinette stitch, 1 yarn over, 1 stitch in stockinette stitch, 1 yarn over, 1 stitch in stockinette stitch, 1 yarn over and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. 
ROW 2 (= wrong side): 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, purl until there are 2 stitches left on the row and finish with 2 edge stitches in garter stitch = 9 stitches on needle.
Then work A.1 and A.2 as follows: Work A.1 over the first 4 stitches, work 1 stitch in stockinette stitch (= mid-stitch – this stitch is worked in stockinette stitch to finished length, irrespective of how the other stitches are worked), work A.2 over the last 4 stitches. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
Continue working and increasing as shown in A.1 and A.2 until you have worked a total of 43 ridges after the cast-on edge = 261 stitches on the needle. Work 1 more ridge with gray and increases in each side and in the middle as before, in addition increase 6 stitches evenly on row, i.e. increase 3 stitches before and 3 stitches after the mid-stitch - read INCREASE TIP. You have now worked a total of 44 ridges and there are 273 stitches on the needle. The piece measures approx. 19 cm from the middle out – measured in the knitting direction.
Continue with MOSAIC PATTERN – read description above, i.e. the first row is from the right side as follows: Work A.3 (= 1 stitch), A.4A over 2 stitches, A.4B over the next 132 stitches (= 33 repeats of 4 stitches), work A.4C over 1 stitch, 1 stitch in stockinette stitch (= mid-stitch – this stitch is worked in the background color of the pattern stripe), work A.5A over 1 stitch, A.5B over the next 132 stitches (= 33 repeats of 4 stitches), work A.5C over 2 stitches and finish with A.3 (= 1 stitch).
Continue this pattern, but remember that 1 row in each of these diagrams is equivalent to 1 ridge (2 rows). Make sure the strands at the back are not tight.
When A.3, A.4 and A.5 have been completed in height there are 363 stitches on the needle.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Work A.6 (= 1 stitch), A.7A over 2 stitches, A.7B over the next 174 stitches (= 29 repeats of 6 stitches), work A.7C over 4 stitches, 1 stitch in stockinette stitch (= mid-stitch – this stitch is worked in the background color of the pattern stripe), work A.8A over 4 stitches, A.8B over the next 174 stitches (= 29 repeats of 6 stitches), work A.8C over 2 stitches and finish with A.6 (= 1 stitch). When A.6, A.7 and A.8 have been completed in height there are 465 stitches on the needle.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Work A.9 (= 1 stitch), A.10A over 2 stitches, A.10B over the next 228 stitches (= 114 repeats of 2 stitches), work A.10C over 1 stitch, 1 stitch in stockinette stitch (= mid-stitch – this stitch is worked in the background color of the pattern stripe), work A.11A over 1 stitch, A.11B over the next 228 stitches (= 114 repeats of 2 stitches), work A.11C over 2 stitches and finish with A.9 (= 1 stitch). When A.9, A.10 and A.11 have been completed in height there are 519 stitches on the needle.
Continue with pearl gray and knit 2 rows where you increase 16 stitches evenly on the first row, i.e. the increases in sides and middle continue as before, in addition increase 8 stitches evenly both before and after the mid-stitch = 541 stitches on needle.
Change to off white and work WAVE PATTERN – read description above, i.e. the first row is worked as follows from the right side: Work A.12A over 4 stitches, A.12B over the next 260 stitches (= 20 repeats of 13 stitches), work A.12C over 6 stitches, 1 stitch in stockinette stitch (= mid-stitch), work A.13A over 6 stitches, A.12B over the next 260 stitches (= 20 repeats of 13 stitches) and finish with A.13C over the last 4 stitches. When the wave pattern is finished there are 773 stitches on the needle.
Work 2 ridges back and forth over all stitches with increases in the sides and on each side of the mid-stitch as before = 785 stitches on the needle. Read CASTING-OFF TIP and bind off with knit from the right side. Cut and fasten the strands.

SHAPING:
Dampen the piece and carefully lay out in the right shape. Allow to dry. Repeat the process each time the shawl is washed.

I diagrammene med mosaikk-mønster, hvilken farge skal det være på kastene i A.X-A.Y-A.Z? Erfaringen min er at med bunnfargen som kast, ser det ikke pent ut. Har dere i tillegg noen gode tips til å feste de løse trådene?

DROPS Design 12.06.2019 kl. 08:36:

Hei Anders. Jeg ville nok strikket kastene i A.x og A.z i hovedfargen på den gjeldene rad (altså samme farge som masken(e) ved siden av). I A.y kan kastene gjøres med bunnfargen = farge D grå. Om du syntes dette blir mindre fint kan du selvfølgelig lage kastene med mønsterfarge. Du kan strikke deg en prøvelapp og se hva du syntes blir finest. Trådene kan festes på vanlig måte, som vist i videoen her: . God fornøyelse

Vedrørende aflukningstips. Der skrives at man laver omslag over omslagene fra forrige pind - menes der at der laves omslag mellem alle masker - som en af jeres instruktionsvideoer viser - eller kun over de ekstra masker man laver - 2 i start af pind, 1 før og efter midtermasken samt 2 til sidst på retpinden. På forhånd tak for hjælpen.

DROPS Design 30.04.2019 kl. 14:57:

Hei Lena. Lag kast på samme sted som siste pinne i diagram A.12 og A.13 - hullmønsteret. God fornøyelse

Puedo yo hacer este Chal en redondo ? Quiero decir que no caiga en pico la parte de atrás. Un saludo. Carmen

DROPS Design 24.03.2019 kl. 20:36:

Hola Carmen. Para trabajar este chal en forma de medialuna tienes que modificar el diagrama. Mira en nuestra colección de chales para tomar referencia.

Claire 13.03.2019 - 17:23:

Merci pour votre réponse, mais je crois que je ne comprends toujours pas, désolée. Cela veut-il dire que au rang 7, par exemple, dans le diagramme A4B, on doit tricoter une maille jaune, glisser une maille jaune, puis glisser une maille grise, puis glisser une maille jaune à nouveau ? En effet je ne vois pas comment glisser trois mailles jaunes quand j'ai des mailles grises au rang précédent. Ou alors est-ce que j'ai mal compris le rang précédent ? Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 14.03.2019 kl. 09:44:

Bonjour Claire, dans A.4B, vous tricotez 1 m jaune (= étoile) et glissez les 3 m suivantes sans les tricoter (= comme dans A.4A). Bon tricot!

Claire 13.03.2019 - 15:57:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas quelque chose dans le point mosaïque. Au 7eme rang du diagramme A3/A4/A5, on doit faire un rang en tricottant les mailles jaunes et en glissant les mailles grises (car la couleur de A3 est le jaune) . Or, on doit parfois glisser 3 mailles grises alors que ce sont des mailles jaunes qui se présentent. En effet, au 6ieme rang on avait 3 mailles jaunes pour une maille grise et au 7eme on a 3 mailles grises pour une maille jaune. Pourriez-vous m'expliquer ? Merci !

DROPS Design 13.03.2019 kl. 16:12:

Bonjour Claire, au 7ème rang de A.3, vous tricotez en coloris B = jaune d'or. Dans les diagrammes A.4- A.5 seules les mailles en jaune d'or seront tricotées, les autres mailles seront glissées. Bon tricot!

Vv 03.02.2019 - 10:20:

Hei, jeg forstår ikke rad to av AX: hvis farge A bare skal løftes av fra forrige pinne, hvordan kan jeg få tre masker i farge A når det bare var en på forrige pinne?

DROPS Design 08.02.2019 kl. 09:31:

Hei Vv. Da løfter du disse maskene løst av (uansett hvilken farge de er) slik at de neste omgang kan strikkes med farge A. Altså på omgang 7 løfter du løst av 1 oker, 1 mørk grå, 1 oker. God fornøyelse.

Is er ook een foto van de averechtse kant van deze omslag doek?

DROPS Design 04.12.2018 kl. 12:33:

Dag Marlies,

Nee, helaas hebben we alleen een foto van de voorkant.

Susann Pinter 12.11.2018 - 19:22:

Ich habe immer noch Probleme mit dem Mosaikmuster obwohl ich habe den Kommentar zu Marlies Falken gelesen. Leider trotzdem verstehe ich immer noch nicht wie das Muster zustande kommen soll wenn ich die Musterreihe nur mit einem Faden stricke. Wie stricke ich die Rueckreihe? Werden alle Maschen gestrickt? Können Sie bitte diese Stricktechnik im Detail erklären.
