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

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

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

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
