EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

DECREASE TIP:
All decreases are done from the right side!
Decrease 1 stitch by knitting 2 stitches together inside 2 stitches in garter stitch at the beginning of row from right side. Decrease like this on the first row of short rows, and then on every 12th row (= every 6th ridge) 5 times in total in each of the first 5 repetitions on shawl.

INCREASE TIP:
All increases are done from the right side.
Increase 1 stitch by making a yarn over inside 2 stitches in garter stitch at the beginning of row from right side. Increase like this every 12th row (= every 6th ridge) 5 times in total in each of the last 5 repetitions on shawl. On next row knit yarn over twisted to avoid holes.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid a big hole when turning on short rows tighten the yarn before continuing.

Wie viel Gramm Wolle brauche ich ungefähr, wenn ich nur mit einer Farbe von Drops Fabel stricken möchte?

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 11:17:

Liebe Claudia, da dieses Tuch mit Streifen gestrickt wird, haben wir keine Erfahrung, wieviel mit nur eine Fabe nötig wäre. Sie können aber die Garnmenge aller Farben zusammenzählen, vielleicht brauchen Sie etwas weniger. Ihr DROPS Laden wird Ihnen gerne weiterhelfen - auch telefonisch oder per E-mail. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hi, I am sure I am just being dense but how can I download this wonderful pattern?

DROPS Design 20.02.2019 kl. 08:58:

Dear Mrs Morgan, our patterns can only be printed, but using a virtual printer will allow you to save them as a .PDF file. Happy knitting!

Nelly Klein 15.02.2019 - 17:43:

Der står i opskriften, at jeg skal tage ind i begyndelsen af hver 12. pind fra retsiden, men den 12. pind, er jo på vrangsiden, ellerer der noget jeg har misforstået.

DROPS Design 21.02.2019 kl. 13:24:

Hei Nelly. Du skal felle på den første omgangen av forkortede pinner, og siden hver 12 pinne etter dette, da vil fellingene være fra rettsiden. Vi har endret på felletipset slik at dette kommer enda tydeligere frem. God fornøyelse.

Claudia Carolina 14.01.2019 - 16:50:

Spett.le Drops, grazie per tutti i fantastici modelli! - Questo scialle se lo volessi lavorare in solo due colori, comunque mi servirebbero 300 + 300 grammi? Grazie di nuovo.

DROPS Design 14.01.2019 kl. 17:44:

Buongiorno Claudia Carolina. Per questo tipo di aiuto, può rivolgersi al suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia. Buon lavoro!
