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. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.


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

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

DECREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 108 stitches), minus edge stitches (e.g. 6 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 12) = 8.5.
In this example decrease by knitting alternately every 7th and 8th stitch and every 8th and 9th stitch together. Do not decrease over edge stitches.

To avoid a tight cast-off edge you may use a larger needle.




Blanket is worked back and forth on circular needle, bottom up.

Cast on 132-216 stitches on circular needle size 4 mm with BabyMerino. Work first row as follows from right side: 3 edge stitches in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above, work A.1 until 3 stitches remain on row (= 6-10 repetitions of 21 stitches) and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. When A.1 has been worked, there are 108-176 stitches on row. Work next row as follows from right side: 3 edge stitches in garter stitch, work A.2 until 3 stitches remain on row (= 6-10 repetitions of 17 stitches) and finish with 3 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures approx. 51-78 cm, adjust after one whole repetition vertically, work 1 ridge back and forth over all stitches. AT THE SAME TIME on first row decrease 12-16 stitches evenly - read DECREASE TIP = 96-154 stitches. Cast off by knitting from right side - read CAST-OFF TIP!


= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= knit from wrong side
= knit 2 together
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over

Hello! I was wondering if you could please clarify the decreases in the last row before binding off. I asked my LYS and her suggestion was to find another pattern, but I like this one and I'm already a good chunk in. If I understand the German correctly in the responses above, you are saying it isn't supposed to be a rectangle. I don't understand why. Could you please provide some context for that? Thanks so much, Sara

Dear Mrs Stephens, we have checked with our Design Team, the blaket is rectangular, and because of wave pattern you will have a different number of stitches to start with than to cast off. Happy knitting!

Svea, A1 mustri järel (alates 3.reast) jääb korduma ainult A2 muster (17 silmusega mustrikordus).

Hej! Mit tæppe ender med at bliver trekantet.. Hver gang jeg har været gennem både A1 og a2 har jeg taget 10 masker ud men kun tilført 6?? Det forstår jeg ikke helt?

Svea 02.11.2018 - 21:39:

Alustasin seda mustrit ja tegin A1 ja siis A2 mustri aga kui üritasin uuesti A1 tegema hakata siis jäi mul silmustest puudu. Käisin alguse läbi ja ei leia viga. Silmuste arv peale A2 jäi ka nii nagu õpetuses, 108.(alguses tegin 132silmust). Kas keegi oskab öelda mis ma valesti tegin?

Corinne BECHET 26.10.2018 - 17:55:

Bonjour, après avoir fait le diagramme A1 et le diagramme A2, dois-je répéter uniquement le diagramme A2 jusqu'à la hauteur désirée ou bien dois-répéter les 2 diagrammes en alternance ? Merci

DROPS Design 28.10.2018 kl. 11:10:

Bonjour Mme Bechet! Vous devez répéter uniquement le diagramme A2 jusqu'à la hauteur désirée. Bon tricot!

Sandra Topke 05.10.2018 - 11:18:

Wenn ich das richtig verstanden habe, braucht man für das Wellenmuster weniger Maschen als für die Krausrippen an Anfang und Ende der Decke. Dann ist aber ein Fehler in der Anleitung, weil dann nach Abschluss des Wellenmusters Maschen für die Krausrippe zugenommen werden müssen!?

DROPS Design 05.10.2018 kl. 11:51:

Liebe Frau Topke, die Anleitung ist so richtig, die Decke wird nicht gerade einen rechteckigen Form haben. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Gabi 28.09.2018 - 10:08:

Vielen Dank für die Erläuterungen. Aber in der Anleitung steht, soweit ich das richtig verstehe, dass ZWEIMAL abgenommen wird. Gleich am Anfang nach A1 und dann noch einmal, bevor man die abschließenden Krausrippen strickt. Der Anleitung zufolge beginnt man mit 216 M und endet mit 154 M. Ich verstehe es einfach nicht ...

DROPS Design 28.09.2018 kl. 11:36:

Liebe Gabi, ja genauso wird die Decke gestrickt, die is nicht ein ech rechteckig. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Gabi 24.09.2018 - 16:26:

Ich kann leider an dem Bild nicht erkennen, wozu Abnahmen in dem Strickwerk notwendig sind. Ginge es auch ohne Abnahmen, um ein relativ rechteckiges Deckchen zu fabrizieren?

DROPS Design 25.09.2018 kl. 09:26:

Liebe Gabi, die Maschenprobe Krausrechts gestrickt (Anfang/Ende der Decke) braucht nicht die selben Maschenanzahl als die Maschenprobe im Wellenmuster, deshalb wird es am Anfang der Decke, nach der Krausrippen abgennommen, und dann später, nach der Wellenmuster und vor den Krausrippen zugenommen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
