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):
Knit all rows.

See diagrams A.1-A.6. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

To avoid at tight edge at the bottom of shawl cast off with a larger sized needle. NOTE: If the edge still is tight make yarn overs and cast them off as stitches evenly along the cast off.




Work back and forth, top down on circular needle in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Knit yarn overs to make holes when increasing.

Cast on 5 stitches with 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk on circular needle size 6 mm. Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= middle stitch), 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit 1 = 9 stitches. Insert a marker in the middle stitch, this should follow up along the piece and marks middle stitch. Middle stitch is worked in stocking stitch, knit the other stitches on every row (= garter stitch).

ROW 1 (= wrong side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit until middle stitch, purl middle stitch, knit until 1 stitch remains, 1 yarn over and knit 1 = 2 stitches increased and 11 stitches on needle.

ROW 2 (= right side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit until stitch marker, 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= middle stitch), 1 yarn over, knit until 1 stitch remains, 1 yarn over and knit 1 = 4 stitches increased.

ROW 3 (= wrong side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit until middle stitch, purl middle stitch, knit until 1 stitch remains, 1 yarn over and knit 1 = 2 stitches increased. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!

Then repeat ROWS 2 and 3 until there are 311 stitches on needle.

Work according to diagrams A.1-A.6 from right side: Work A.1 over 7 stitches, work A.2 over the next 144 stitches (= 8 times in total), A.3 over 4 stitches, 1 stitch in stocking stitch (= middle stitch), work A.4 over 4 stitches, work A.5 over the next 144 stitches (= 8 times in total) and work A.6 over 7 stitches.
Work diagrams 1 time vertically = 395 stitches on needle. Read CAST-OFF TIP above and loosely cast off on next row from right side. Fasten off.

Hej Efter at have strikket et par af dette dejlige sjal, vil jeg lige gøre jer opmærksomme på, at der kun bliver brugt 2,5 nøgle af Drops Kid Silk, altså 3 nøgler er nok, og ikke 4 som det fremstår i opskriften :)

Zou het kunnen dat de foto niet overeenkomt met het patroon. De figuur komt namelijk aan de lange kant van de omslagdoek en niet aan de rand zoals op de foto. Is er een patroon beschikbaar om een omslagdoek te verkrijgen zoals die op de foto?

Dag Kelly

De foto komt overeen met het patroon. De omslagdoek wordt vanuit het midden van de rand (dus de rand waar geen kantpatroon zit) naar buiten toe gebreid en je breit aan het einde het kantpatroon.

Bonjour, Comme Pierrette je ne comprends pas. Si on tricote en mousse seul jusqu'à avoir 311 mailles, que deviennent les motifs ajourés qui devraient border les côtés du châle ? Par contre, il semble que vous préconisiez de tricoter les diagrammes le long du bord large (le haut pour moi) du châle alors qu'il ne s'y trouve pas de motif sur la photo. Vite, sortez moi du pétrin :-) Merci.

DROPS Design 12.12.2018 kl. 14:48:

Bonjour Mme Martin, le châle se tricote de haut en bas, c'est-à-dire que l'on commence par la partie point mousse en augmentant de 5 à 311 m pour terminer par le point ajouré du bas du châle. Au début, on passe de 5 à 11 m puis on va augmenter 4 m tous les rangs sur l'endroit (= rang 2) + 2 m tous les rangs sur l'envers (= rang 3) jusqu'à ce que l'on ait 311 m au total. On tricote ensuite les diagrammes A.1-A.6 comme indiqué. Bon tricot!

Monica 10.12.2018 - 14:40:

Buongiorno, quindi i diagrammi da A1 ad A6 vanno lavorati due volte in verticale? Ho capito bene? Grazie

DROPS Design 10.12.2018 kl. 16:54:

Buongiorno Monica. Abbiamo corretto il testo. I diagrammi vengono lavorati una sola volta in verticale. Buon lavoro!

Pierrette Truchon 21.11.2018 - 23:09:

Je ne comprend pas, doit-on tricoter l’es diagramme en même temps que les rangs 2 et 3

DROPS Design 22.11.2018 kl. 09:01:

Bonjour Mme Truchon, vous répétez les rangs 2 et 3 jusqu'à ce qu'il y ait 311 m. Ensuite vous tricotez les diagrammes A.1 à A.6 (les augmentations que vous faisiez auparavant figurent dans ces diagrammes, suivez-les simplement comme indiqué). Bon tricot!

Elinborg 06.11.2018 - 23:38:

Hej Der står at diagrammene viser alle pinde i mønsteret set fra retsiden men hvad så med vrangsiden? Skal jeg fortsætte med at strikke 3. Pind fra vrangsiden?

DROPS Design 07.11.2018 kl. 08:08:

Hei Elinborg, Vrang siden skal strikkes fra diagrammet lest fra venstre til høyre. Utenom kastene, er resten av raden vrang masker - åpen rute = rett fra rettsiden og vrang fra vrangsiden. God fornøyelse!

Aurelie 29.10.2018 - 16:36:

Bonjour . Le châle doit il être bloquer a la fin ?

DROPS Design 29.10.2018 kl. 17:28:

Bonjour Aurelie, ce n'est pas necessaire. Bon tricot!

MARIAGRAZIA CATELLANI 27.10.2018 - 10:49:

Vorrei eliminare la fila di buchini centrale: se lavoro a diritto ritorto i gettati, in modo che non si formi il buchino, il lavoro non ne risentirà? Grazie per la vostra risposta

DROPS Design 27.10.2018 kl. 18:28:

Buongiorno MariaGrazia. Se preferisce, può lavorare i gettati al centro ritorti. Buon lavoro!
