EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

PATTERN:
Head band: See diagram A.1.
Shawl: See diagram A.2
Wrist warmers: See diagram A.2.
The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP (for wrist warmers):
Increase by making 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole. Then work the new stitch in garter stitch.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

HEAD BAND - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth and sewn together mid back to finish.

HEAD BAND:
Cast on 51 stitches with needle size 4 mm / US 6 and Sky. Work 1 RIDGE – read description above. Now work pattern A.1 (= 49 stitches) with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side. Continue back and forth like this until the piece measures approx. 21 cm – adjust so that the next row is the first row in A.1. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Place the last 25 stitches on a thread and work the first 26 stitches as follows:
Work pattern as before over these 26 stitches and cast on 1 new stitch at the end of the row = 27 stitches. Turn and continue the pattern back and forth with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side until you have worked 16 rows (= 4 repeats of A.1 in height) from the division, but on the last row from the wrong side bind off the last stitch on the row = 26 stitches. Cut the strand. Place these stitches on a new thread.
Cast on 2 new stitches on the needles, place the 25 stitches from the first thread back on the needles and then work pattern as before from the right side = 27 stitches. Continue back and forth with pattern as before inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side until you have worked 16 rows (= 4 repeats of A.1 in height) from the division, but on the last row bind off the 2 first stitches on the row before the remaining stitches are worked = 25 stitches.
Now you plait the head band mid front. Work from the right side as follows:
Turn and work the 25 stitches in pattern as before, then lay the first piece in front of the second piece and the 26 stitches are worked in pattern as before = 51 stitches on the needle. Insert a marker thread here. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Continue pattern A.1 with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side until the head band measures approx. 21 cm – adjust so that you finish after row 1 or 5 in A.1. Work 1 ridge. Bind off. Sew the head band together mid back in each and every stitch inside the cast-on and bind-off edges. Cut and fasten the strand.

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

SHAWL - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle.

SHAWL:
All stitches and yarn overs are knitted. Cast on 15 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and Sky. 
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 2, 1 yarn over, A.2 (= 9 stitches), 1 yarn over, knit 2, 1 yarn over, knit 1 = 4 stitches increased.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit as far as A.2, work A.2 over the next 9 stitches, knit until there is 1 stitch left, 1 yarn over, knit 1 = 2 stitches increased. 
ROW 3: Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit as far as A.2, 1 yarn over, work A.2 over the next 9 stitches, 1 yarn over, knit until there is 1 stitch left, 1 yarn over, knit 1 = 4 stitches increased.
REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until the piece measures approx. 36 cm measured along A.2 in middle of shawl – adjust so that you finish after row 1 or 5 in A.2. Loosely bind off with knit from the wrong side. Cut and fasten the strand.

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

WRIST WARMERS - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth and sewn together at the end.

WRIST WARMERS:
Cast on 35-39-41 stitches with needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 and Sky. Work pattern as follows:
13-15-16 stitches GARTER STITCH - read description above, A.2 (= 9 stitches), 13-15-16 stitches in garter stitch. Continue back and forth like this. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When the piece measures 10-11-12 cm / 3 7/8"-4 ¼"-4 5/8" increase 1 stitch inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side - read INCREASE TIP = 37-41-43 stitches. The increased stitch is worked in garter stitch. Continue until the piece measures approx. 15-16-17 cm / 5 7/8"-6 ¼"-6 5/8" - adjust so that you finish after row 1 or 5 in diagram A.2. Bind off with knit from the wrong side, but to avoid the bind-off edge being tight, make 1 yarn over after each 4th stitch (yarn overs bind off as normal stitches). Cut the strand but leave a length of approx. 25 cm for assembly. Sew the wrist warmer together, sewing inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Fasten the strand. Work another wrist warmer in the same way.

Diagram

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 as if to knit, knit 2, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitches (= 1 stitch decreased)
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over. On the next row knit the yarn over to leave a hole
= this square has no stitch as it was decreased earlier; go straight to next symbol in diagram

Jeg kan kun se,jeg får huller,ikke snoninger?Mvh.

Hei Joan. Det er symbolet ta 1 maske løst av, strikk 2 masker, trekk den løse masken over (=1 maske felt), og økingen midt mellom de 2 maskene som er igjen etter fellingen som skaper et slags flettemønster: den masken som blir trukket over ser ut som den er flettet. Det blir tydeligere når du har strikket flere rapporter i høyden. God fornøyelse

Zaida 10.11.2018 - 19:09:

Para complementar las instrucciones, deberían hacer un video a partir del cierre del punto agregado en la primera mitad de la banda y el inicio de la segunda mitad hasta despues de la primera fila de la segunda parte, pues esa parte en las instrucciones no se entiende. Incluso, podrían ponerlo hasta finalizar la segunda parte e iniciar la union de las partes.

Birgit Lingblom 06.11.2018 - 14:42:

Önskar förklaring till hur man "sammanför" maskorna från de båda stickorna vid SAMMANFLÄTNINGEN. Saknar beskrivning om hur man gör praktiskt.

DROPS Design 08.11.2018 kl. 08:47:

Hej Birgit, här ser du hur man kan göra:

Zaida 01.11.2018 - 04:01:

Buenos días, ahorita estoy detenida al trabajar la segunda parte luego de dividir tejido (25 puntos que se transforman en 27). Pero no sé cómo pasar el hilo de los 2 puntos montados al inicio a los 25+2 para iniciar nuevamente las 16 filas del diagrama A1. Cómo se hace esto?

DROPS Design 04.11.2018 kl. 19:22:

Hola Zaida. Primero tienes que asegurarte de que antes de dividir la labor te toque trabajar la fila 1 de A.1. Tienes que montar 2 puntos nuevos y pasar los 25 puntos del gancho auxiliar a la aguja (sin trabajarlos primero). Ya estás preparada para trabajar la primera fila de A.1

Zaida 06.10.2018 - 15:53:

Qué es el Pliegue? En el patrón no explica cómo se hace. Podrían explicar qué es?

DROPS Design 12.10.2018 kl. 13:41:

Hola Zaida, ha sido un fallo al publicar el patrón. Ya está corregido con las explicaciones del pliegue.

Ida 04.10.2018 - 11:01:

Räknas första varvet i mönstret A1 som rätsida? Alltså, görs omslaget från avigsidan?

DROPS Design 04.10.2018 kl. 13:13:

Hei Ida. Ja, det stemmer: fellingen gjøres fra rettsiden og kastene lages på vrangsiden. God fornøyelse

Tanja 04.09.2018 - 00:31:

"tag 1 maske løs af pinden som om den skulle strikkes ret, strik 2 masker ret, løft den løse maske over (= 1 maske taget ind)" Er det ikke i alt 2 masker man tager ind her? Skal vrang siden strikkes som vrangstrik?

DROPS Design 04.09.2018 kl. 08:14:

Hei Tanja. Det er kun den masken som tas løst av og siden trekkes over som blir felt. De to andre maskene strikkes vanlig rett (ikke rett sammen) = 3 masker blir til 2. Diagrammet viser alle pinner sett fra retten, så når du strikker fra vrangsiden må du strikke motsatt av det som diagrammet viser. Det står også forklart i symbolforklaringen (hvit rute = rett fra retten, vrang fra vrangen. Kryss = vrang fra retten, rett fra vrangen). God fornøyelse
