Pattern instructions

EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.8. Pattern A.a is worked first, then repeat pattern A.b in height over pattern A.a to finished length. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.
As you are decreasing and increasing in diagrams A.1b and A.2b and A.7 and A.8, the number of stitches can vary by 1 stitch per repeat in the diagrams if it is just after a decreased.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SHAWL - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The shawl is worked back and forth, top down.

SHAWL:
Cast on 7 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and Sky. Knit 1 row from the wrong side.

Work as follows from the right side: Work 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH - read description above, * A.1a (= 1 stitch), A.2a (= 1 stitch) *, 1 mid stitch in stocking stitch, work from *-* 1 more time and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
Continue this pattern. The yarn overs are not worked twisted to leave holes.
The increases are drawn in the diagrams; you increase 4 stitches on the first increase and 8 stitches on the 2nd and 3rd increases. These three increases are repeated in height to finished length. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When A.1a and A.2a have been worked 1 time in height there are 91 stitches on the needle.

The next row is worked as follows from the right side:
Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * A.3a (= 1 stitch), A.1b (= 21 stitches), A.2b (= 21 stitches), A.4a (= 1 stitch) *, 1 mid-stitch in stocking stitch, work from *-* 1 more time and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
A.1b and A.2b are repeated in height to finished length.
When A.3a and A.4a have been worked 1 time in height there are 147 stitches on the needle.

The next row is worked as follows from the right side:
Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * A.5a (= 1 stitch), A.3b (= 14 stitches), A.1b and A.2b as before (= a total of 42 stitches), A.4b (= 14 stitches), A.6a (= 1 stitch) *, 1 mid-stitch in stocking stitch, work from *-* 1 more time and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
A.3b and A.4b are repeated in height to finished length.
When A.5a and A.6a have been worked 1 time in height there are 199 stitches on the needle.

The next row is worked as follows from the right side:
Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * A.7a (= 1 stitch), A.5b (= 13 stitch), A.1b to A.4b as before (= a total of 70 stitches), A.6b (= 13 stitches), A.8a (= 1 stitch) *, 1 mid-stitch in stocking stitch, work from *-* 1 more time and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
A.5b and A.6b are repeated in height to finished length.
When A.7a and A.8a have been worked 1 time in height there are 247 stitches on the needle.

The next row is worked as follows from the right side:
Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * A.1a over the next stitch, A.7b (= 12 stitches), A.1b to A.6b as before (= a total of 96 stitches), A.8b (= 12 stitches), A.2a over the next stitch *, 1 mid-stitch in stocking stitch, work from *-* 1 more time and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
A.7b and A.8b are repeated in height to finished length.

Continue this pattern, i.e. when A.1a and A.2a have been worked 1 time in height inside the 1 edge stitch in each side and on each side of the mid-stitch, A.3a and A.4a are worked inside the 1 edge stitch in each side of the piece and on each side of the mid-stitch etc. Continue this pattern and these increases in height until the piece measures approx. 64 cm, measured along the mid-stitch (there is now approx. 8 cm left); adjust so that the pattern inside the 1 edge stitch and on each side of the mid-stitch has finished increasing (i.e. if there is a cable, so that all stitches in the cable has been increased). Continue to increase and work pattern as before, but now work the increased stitches in garter stitch. Continue like this until the piece measures 72 cm measured along the mid-stitch. Cast off with knit over knit, purl over purl and garter stitch over garter stitch; make sure the cast-off edge is not tight; you can use a larger needle size to cast off if this is a problem.

Diagram

= knit from right side, purl from wrong side
= purl from right side, knit from wrong side
= this square has no stitch because it was decreased earlier; go straight to next symbol in diagram.
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over
= work 3 stitches, pass the first stitch worked over the last 2 stitches so that this stitch lies around the other two (= 1 stitch decreased)
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= place 2 stitches on cable needle in front of piece, knit 2, knit 2 from cable needle
= place 2 stitches on cable needle behind piece, knit 2, knit 2 from cable needle
= place 4 stitches on cable needle in front of piece, knit 4, knit 4 from cable needle
= place 4 stitches on cable needle behind, knit 4, knit 4 from cable needle

Hallo, Ich bin jetzt kurz vorm beenden der Arbeit und habe A.1a und A.2a schon das zweite Mal gestrickt. Danach soll man ja A.3a und A.4a wiederholen und das Muster weiterführen. Was mache ich mit den 21 Maschen, die Zwischen A.3a und A.7b sind? Danke 😊

DROPS Design 17.12.2018 kl. 09:38:

Liebe Nadine, die neuen Maschen (innerhalb der Randmaschen und beidseitig der Mittelmasche) werden im Muster wie zuvor wiederholt = über A.3a und A.4a stricken Sie A.3b und A.4b mit A.4a dann A.5a mit A.4b usw. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Hej!\r\nJag har börjat sticka 195-36 en sjal ”shade of winter” men har svårt med att tolka den första diagram, jag tycker det ser ut som hål längst in mot mitten på båda sidor men det blir inte så om jag följer diagrammen. Desutom står der i beskrivningen att det ska vara 91 maskor när jag er klar med diagram A.2a A.1a. \r\nHoppas på svar från er. \r\nHälsning \r\nYvonne Lund \r\nTel 0705137974

DROPS Design 14.12.2018 kl. 11:01:

Hei Yvonne. Du har 7 masker på pinnen, og strikker slik: 1 kantmaske i rille, A.1a, A.2a, 1 maske glattstrikk (=midtmasken), A.1a, A.2a, 1 kantmaske i rille. Det økes med kast ytterst i begge diagrammene, altså mot yetterkanten av sjalet (A.1a på høyre side og A.2a på venstre side) og mote midten (A.2a på høyre side og A.1a på venstre side). Kastene skal ikke strikkes vridd, og det blir derfor hullmønster langs ytterkanten og langs midten. Når du er ferdig med A.1a/A.2a har du 22 masker i hvert diagram (=44 masker på hver side av midten). = 88 masker, pluss 1 midtmaske og 1 kantmaske i hver side = 91 masker. God fornøyelse.

Helaas klopt het bij mij nog steeds niet. Ik snap het nog.niet helemaal. Moet ik de teruggaande naald als verkeerde of.goede kant van het werk zien. Met vriendelijke groet, Kim

DROPS Design 07.11.2018 kl. 14:45:

Dag Kim,

De teruggaande naald moet je inderdaad alk verkeerde kant zien. Na het opzetten brei je 1 naald recht aan de verkeerde kant, dan keer je het werk en begin je met breien van het patroon zoals in de beschrijving is te lezen. Je breit steeds heen en en weer en de sjaal wordt vanuit het midden gebreid en je hebt steeds meer steken op de naald. Als er een verkooppunt bij je in de buurt is kun je ook altijd even langs gaan, zodat iemand met je mee kan kijken.

Kim 02.11.2018 - 18:42:

Er staat dat de goede kant in de tekening is beschreven, Hoe worden dan de teruggaande naalden gebreid? Prachtige omslagdoek!

DROPS Design 04.11.2018 kl. 20:29:

Dag Kim,

In de telpatronen zijn zowel de heengaande als de teruggaande naalden weergegeven, maar gezien aan de goede kant van het werk. Voor elk symbool staat aangegeven hoe je deze op de goede of de vereerde kant breit. Hier vind je meer info over het lezen van telpatronen.

Podría darme el sketch para talla 48. También me gustaría tener planos de jerséis a ochos, para el mismo caso

Monika Opočenská 15.10.2018 - 18:22:

Dobrý den, prosím jak mám chápat *-*1x zopakujeme. Má to být *vzor A.1a (= 1 oko), vzor A.2a (= 1 oko)*, 1 středové oko lícovým žerzejem, *-* 1x zopakujeme a končíme 1 krajovým okem vroubkovým vzorem. Má to tedy být A.1a, A.2a a znovu A1a A.2a? Já bych to spíš dělala A1.a, A.2a a A2.a, A.1a. Aby to bylo zrcadlově a ne za sebou. Ráda bych šátek upletla, jen tomu potřebuju rozumět. Děkuji Monika Opočenská

DROPS Design 18.10.2018 kl. 06:39:

Dobrý den, Moniko, průběh vzoru je v pořádku - po prohození sekvencí vzoru by nevycházelo přidávání (vzory se rozšiřují vždy jen na jednu stranu). Zrcadlení je již zakotveno přímo ve vzorku - jednotlivé vzorové pruhy, "paprsky", by na sebe měly u středové linky navazovat. Hodně zdaru! Hana

Beautiful! And it seems that this shawl have a unusual contruction. I'm eager to see the pattern!
