ACCESSORIES FOR THE PIECE:

KNITTING GAUGE:
23 stitches in width and 45 rows vertically in garter stitch = 4'' x 4'' (10 x 10 cm).

NOTE: If using DROPS Lace soak and stretch the shawl to size afterwards, the knitting gauge is thus not that important. But to get a sense of whether you are working too loose/tight, work a test on needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 in garter stitch to make sure that the knitting gauge is correct.

NEEDLES:
DROPS CIRCULAR Needle size 3.5 mm / US 4, length 80 cm.
Needle size is only a suggestion! If you have too many stitches on 10 cm / 4'' switch to larger needles. If you have too few stitches on 10 cm / 4'' switch to smaller needles.

CROCHET Hook size 3,5 mm / E/4 (OPTIONAL).

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here.

EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
Knit all rows.

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

BOBBLE:
A bobble can be made in different ways. Method 1 makes a bobble that is worked together on next row from wrong side. Method 2 makes a bobble with crochet hook and this bobble is done on this row. Choose the method that suits you best, make a test as there are many stitches on the needle when working the diagram.

METHOD 1:
Work 7 stitches in 1 stitch as follows: * Knit 1, 1 yarn over *, work from *-* 3 times in total and finish with knit 1 = 7 stitches. It is important to make the stitches somewhat loose (approx. 1 cm / 3/8'' long) or it might be difficult to knit them together later. Do not turn piece but work the rest of row as explained in pattern/diagram. When working next row from wrong side, purl all the 7 stitches in each bobble together.

METHOD 2: Use a crochet hook in the same size as needle. Use the crochet hook as a knitting needle and work 7 stitches in 1 stitch as follows: * Knit 1, 1 yarn over *, work from *-* 3 times in total and finish with knit 1 = 7 stitches. It is important to work the stitches somewhat loose (approx. 1 cm / 3/8'' long). Make 1 yarn over on hook and then pull it through all loops/stitches on hook, tighten yarn and slip loop on hook on to right needle.

BIND-OFF:
To avoid a tight bind-off edge make yarn overs when binding off. Make a yarn over over all yarn overs from previous row with yarn over, bind off yarn over as regular stitches along the way. Make sure not to tighten the yarn. If the edges still are tight use a larger needle size for bind-off.

SHAPING:
When using another yarn than Lace from yarn group A, there is no need to stretch to measurements, but place it gently out in shape. Leave to dry. Repeat the process when the shawl has been washed.

SHAWL - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work back and forth, top down on circular needle in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above.

SHAWL:
Cast on 13 stitches on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Lace or BabyAlpaca Silk. Knit 1 row from wrong side. Work next row as follows:
ROW 1 (= right side): Make 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit the rest of stitches (= 2 stitches increased).
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Make 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit the rest of stitches (= 2 stitches increased).

Work ROWS 1-2 3 more times (4 times in total) = 29 stitches on needle.

Then work next row as follows from right side:
Make 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, * 1 yarn over, knit 2 together, 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, work from *-* 8 times in total and knit 3 (= 10 stitches increased) = 39 stitches on needle.
Work next row as follows from wrong side: Make 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit the rest of stitches (= 2 stitches increased) = 41 stitches on needle.

Work ROWS 1-2 10 times in total = 81 stitches on needle.

Then work next row as follows from right side:
Make 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 2, * 1 yarn over, knit 2 together, 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, work from *-* 25 times in total and knit 3 (= 27 stitches increased) = 108 stitches on needle.
Work next row as follows from wrong side: Make 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit the rest of stitches (= 2 stitches increased) = 110 stitches on needle.


Work ROWS 1-2 15 times in total = 170 stitches on needle.

Then work next row as follows from right side:
Make 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, * 1 yarn over, knit 2 together, 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, work from *-* 55 times in total and knit 3 (= 57 stitches increased) = 227 stitches on needle.
Work next row as follows from wrong side: Make 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit the rest of stitches (= 2 stitches increased) = 229 stitches on needle.

Work ROWS 1-2 5 times in total = 249 stitches on needle.

NOTE: Now the increase in the side changes, work next row as follows:
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit the rest of stitches (= 1 stitches increased).
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit the rest of stitches (= 1 stitches increased).

Work ROWS 3-4 17 times in total = 283 stitches on needle.

Then work next row as follows from right side:
Knit 2, * 1 yarn over, knit 2 together, 1 yarn over, knit 1 *, work from *-* 93 times in total and knit 2 (= 93 stitches increased) = 376 stitches on needle.
Work next row as follows from wrong side: Knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit the rest of stitches (= 1 stitch increased) = 377 stitches on needle.

Work ROWS 3-4 15 times in total = 407 stitches on needle.

then work according to diagram A.1 and A.2 – READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING! There are many stitches on the needle and we recommend that you use marker threads or markers to mark where each diagram begins and ends. Insert a marker thread/marker after every 14th stitch and move them upwards when working.

Next row is from right side and is worked as follows:
Work A.1 29 times in total in width, work A.2 over the last stitch. Work diagrams 1 time vertically. When diagrams are done, loosely bind off on next row from right side - read BIND-OFF in explanation above.

BLOCKING: 
Place the shawl in lukewarm water until it is soaking wet. Carefully squeeze the water out of the shawl - do not twist the shawl - then roll the shawl in a towel and squeeze to remove more water - the shawl will now only be moist. Use another yarn than Lace from yarn group A - read SHAPING in explanation above. Place the shawl on a carpet or mattress - carefully stretch it out to size and fasten it with pins. Leave shawl to dry. Repeat the process when the shawl has been washed.

Jeg prøver lige igen om I kan svare: 26.03.2019 - 15:32: Forstår ikke den række hulmønster kun skal laves 1 gang (den hvor der afsluttes med at være 377m). På billedet ser det ud som den skal strikes 4 gange men det fremgår ikke af opskriften ? Efter den ene række med hulmøsteret skal der igen strikes 3. og 4. p 15 gange = 407 m, og så starter det afsluttende mønster! med A1 og A2 ?

Hei Marianne. Se svar under, hilsen DROPS

Hei Marianne. Første strikker du 1. og 2. pinne 4 ganger (= 29 masker på pinnen) så strikkes 1 hullrad, så gjentar du 1. og 2. pinne totalt 10 ganger (=81 masker), så strikkes 1 ny hullrad, så gjentas 1. og 2 pinne 15 ganger (= 170 masker) så strikkes 1 ny hullrad osv. Det avsnittet der du ender på 377 masker, er altså forklaringen på siste/ fjerde hullrad. Alle radene der du skal strikke 1 kast, 2 rett sammen over alle maskene, blir en hullrad. God fornøyelse

Ingrid 13.02.2019 - 20:39:

Bedankt, had de beschrijving verkeerd gelezen. Alles is nu duidelijk. Alvast bedankt.

Ingrid 12.02.2019 - 19:47:

Ik heb de indruk dat na het tweede deel het aantal steken niet klopt. Is het de bedoeling dat in het 3de deel de omslagen doorlopen over de ganse breedte van het werk.

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 10:52:

Dag Ingrid,

Wat bedoel je met het derde deel?

Het patroon is a.h.w. opgeknipt in delen waarbij je steeds eerst twee naalden breit met het gaatjespatroon en daarna de ribbels steeds herhaalt met aan de zijkanten omslagen (naald 1 en 2 en later naald 3 en 4 met 1 omslag aan weerszijden)

Bello scialle. Semplice e raffinato.

Bina 19.11.2018 - 10:51:

Jeg kan ikke se diagrammet mere, hvor blev det af?

DROPS Design 19.11.2018 kl. 11:28:

Hei Bina. Diagrammet ligger fortsatt nederst på siden, under selve oppskriften. Vi har sjekket den danske oppskriften, og det er synlig her også. Gjelder det uansett hvaslags enhet du bruker (Pc/mobil/nettbrett)? kan du se diagrammet på et av de andre språkene, feks i den norske oppskriften?

Wenche 06.11.2018 - 20:17:

Daydreamer: Is it correct knitting «Make 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over» in the beginning of the rows? The edge of the shalw gets so big yarnloops and they seem so fragile... It does not look like that on the picture.

DROPS Design 07.11.2018 kl. 08:21:

Dear Mrs Wenche, that's right, you start some rows with 1 yarn over - make sure that they aren't neither too loose, nor too tight. The shawl has been blocked and this is not visible anymore. Happy knitting!

Dea 28.08.2018 - 20:33:

C'è un refuso dove dice l'occorrente "Or use: DROPS BABYALPACA SILK di Garnstudio ..." :)

DROPS Design 29.08.2018 kl. 09:23:

Buongiorno Dea. Abbiamo corretto il testo. La ringraziamo per la segnalazione. Buon lavoro!
