EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

ENGLISH RIB IN TWO COLOURS:
ROW 1 (=wrong side): Work with fog as follows
1 edge stitch in garter stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), knit 1, * 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit yarn over and slipped stitch together *, work from *-* until there are 3 stitches left (including the yarn over), 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit 1, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased) and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Turn the piece.
ROW 2 (= right side): Work with fog as follows:
1 edge stitch in garter stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), knit 1, * 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit yarn over and slipped stitch together *, work from *-* until there are 3 stitches left (including the yarn over), 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit 1, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased) and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
Push the stitches back on the needle so that you work them from the same side again and change colour - read KNITTING TIP-1.
ROW 3 (= right side): Work with wheat as follows:
1 edge stitch in garter stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), knit 1, * 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, purl yarn over and slipped stitch together *, work from *-* until there are 3 stitches left (including the yarn over), 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased) and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Turn the piece.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Work with fog as follows:
1 edge stitch in garter stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), knit 1, * 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, purl yarn over and slipped stitch together *, work from *-* until there are 3 stitches left (including the yarn over), 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit 1, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased) and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
Push the stitches back on the needle so that you work them from the same side again and change colour.
ROW 5 (= wrong side): Work with wheat as follows:
1 edge stitch in garter stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), knit 1, * 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit yarn over and slipped stitch together *, work from *-* until there are 3 stitches left (including the yarn over), finish with 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit 1, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased) and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Turn the piece.
Repeat rows 2-5 upwards.

KNITTING TIP-1:
If you are in doubt as to which colour to use on the next row, you can see the colour used on the previous row by the colour of the edge stitch.

INCREASE TIP:
All increases are made on a row with fog from the right side.
Work 5 stitches in the stitch and yarn-over as follows: * Knit yarn over and stitch together, but wait with slipping them off the needle, make 1 yarn over the right needle *, work from *-* a total of 2 times and knit the stitch and yarn over together 1 more time = 5 stitches (= 4 stitches increased). On the next row work the stitches into the pattern. NOTE: work each increased stitch individually (do not work yarn over and stitch together).

SHAWL - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle.

SHAWL:
Cast on 5 stitches with circular needle size 6 mm and fog. Knit 1 row.
ROW 1 (= from the wrong side): 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – read description above, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), knit 1, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit 1, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
In other words, increase 1 stitch by working 1 yarn over inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side, the yarn overs which are part of the English rib are not used to increase, i.e. they are worked together with the stitch beside them on the next row.
ROW 2 (= from right side): Work 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), knit 1, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit the yarn over and slipped stitch together, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit 1, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
ROW 3: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), knit 1, * 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit yarn over and slipped stitch together *, work from *-* until there are 3 stitches left (including the yarn over), 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
ROW 4: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), knit 1, * 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit yarn over and slipped stitch together *, work from *-* until there are 3 stitches left (including yarn over), 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit 1, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 1 edge stitch in garter stitch = 13 stitches (without the English rib yarn overs).
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Then work ENGLISH RIB IN TWO COLOURS – read description above, first row from the wrong side.
You are now increasing 2 stitches on each row, inside the 1 edge stitch.
When rows 1 to 5 have been worked 1 time there are 23 stitches on the needle (without the English rib yarn-overs). Insert 1 marker in each of the 3 middle knitted stitches seen from the right side (i.e. knitted stitches in fog). Now also increase in these 3 stitches on row 2 in the English rib - read INCREASE TIP (= 14 stitches increase in total).
Continue to increase in each side inside 1 edge stitch on each row and increase in the 3 stitches with markers every 8th row. There will be more stitches between the knitted stitches with the markers each time you increase. Continue like this until the piece measures 40 cm, measured in middle of shawl. Cast off with wheat, knit over knit and purl over purl, but the yarn overs are cast off as normal stitches so that the cast-off edge is not tight.

Scusate, mi sono accorto di aver letto male spiegazioni. In ogni caso ho trovato un piccolo errore al FERRO 3 della spiegazione dello Scialle. Dice di passare una maglia a diritto, ma le maglie se si devono passare le si passa solo a rovescio.

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

Dea 10.11.2018 - 21:10:

Buonasera. Il ferro 1 delle tecniche e il ferro 1 dello scialle non combaciano come procedimento perchè? In quello delle tecniche dice così FERRO 1 (= rovescio del lavoro): Lavorare con il colore nebbia come segue:..... lavorare insieme a diritto la maglia gettata e la maglia passata *, ripetere da ..." nell'altro questa frase FERRO 1 (= rovescio del lavoro): ".. lavorare insieme a diritto la maglia gettata e la maglia passata.." non c'è.
