EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

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

PATTERN:
Hat: See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Choose diagram for your size.
Shawl: See diagrams A.3 to A.6.

MOSAIC PATTERN:
See diagram A.1 and A.2 for hat and A.3 to A.6 for shawl and read explanation for technique below.
On all rows from right side hold yarn behind piece (i.e. on wrong side of piece) when slipping a stitch.
On all rows from wrong side hold yarn in front of piece (i.e. towards you and still on wrong side of piece) when slipping a stitch.
Make sure that the yarn is not too tight on wrong side of piece!
To maintain control over pattern insert a marker between every pattern repetition.
Work pattern in garter stitch.
A.1/A.3 show which color to use on row.
On every pattern row that begins and ends with a black square in A.1/A.3 (color B), knit all stitches with color B and slip all stitches with color A.
On every pattern row that begins and ends with a empty square in A.1/A.3 (color A), knit all stitches with color A and slip all stitches with color B.

DECREASE TIP (applies to hat):
All decreases are done from the right side!
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 122 stitches), minus edge stitches (2 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 12) = 10. In this example knit approx. every 9th and 10th stitch together.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

HAT - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work piece back and forth on circular needle.

HAT:
Cast on 112-122 stitches (including 1 edge stitch in each side of piece) on circular needle size 3 mm = US 2,5 with old pink. Work 4 ridges in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above.
Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm = US 4 and work pattern - read MOSAIC PATTERN, as follows:
Work A.1 (= 1 stitch), work A.2 (= 11-12 stitches) over the next 110-120 stitches (= 10-10 times in width) and A.1 over last stitch.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE!
Continue pattern until piece measures 17-18 cm = 6 3/4”-7”. Then work piece in garter stitch with old pink. Then decrease as follows:
Decrease 11-12 stitches evenly every 4th row - read DECREASE TIP, 9 times in total = 13-14 stitches. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten. Hat measures approx. 25-26 cm = 9 3/4”-10 1/4”. Sew hat together inside 1 edge stitch with old pink.

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

SHAWL - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Piece is worked back and forth on circular needle, diagonally from corner to corner in sections with garter stitch, stripes and mosaic pattern.

SHAWL:
Cast on 3 stitches on circular needle size 3.5 mm = US 4 with light camel. Work 1 ridge in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above.

SECTION-1 (garter stitch in light camel):
ROW 1 (= right side): Slip 1 stitch purlwise, knit until 1 stitch remains on needle, work 2 stitches in last stitch (= 1 stitch increased).
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit 2, knit loop before next stitch on left needle twisted (= 1 stitch increased), knit until 2 stitches remain on needle, knit 2 stitches twisted together (= 1 stitch increased and 1 stitch decreased).
Repeat 1st and 2nd row until there are 63 stitches on needle (= 61 ridges in total). REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE! Piece measures approx. 56 cm = 22” measured along first stitch from right side.

SECTION-2 (stripes):
Continue to increase and decrease as before but now work stripes as follows:
Cut the yarn where there is more than 2 ridges before same color is used again.
Work * 1 ridge in dark pink, 2 ridges with light camel *, work from *-* 3 times in total (= 9 ridges) = 72 stitches on needle.
Then work stripes as follows:
* Work 1 ridge with dark pink, 2 ridges with light camel, 1 ridge with dark pink, 1 ridge with old pink, 2 ridges with light camel, 1 ridges with old pink, 2 ridges with light camel *, work from *-* 2 times in total (= 20 ridges) = 92 stitches on needle.
Piece measures approx. 88 cm = 34 5/8” measured along first stitch from right side.

SECTION-3 (mosaic pattern with dark pink and light camel):
Continue to increase and decrease as before but now work pattern as follows:
Work 1 ridge with dark pink = 93 stitches. Then work MOSAIC PATTERN - read explanation above, with dark pink and light camel as follows:
Work A.3 (= 1 stitch), A.4 (= 18 stitches), work A.5 (= 12 stitches) over the next 72 stitches (= 6 times in width), A.6 (= 1 stitch) and A.3 over last stitch (this is the stitch to work 2 stitches in from right side. From wrong side work first stitch as A.3 and work 2nd stitch in pattern A.6). Loop to be picked up between 2 stitches on every row from wrong side are worked in A.6.
When A.3 to A.6 have been worked 1 time vertically (= 12 ridges), there are 105 stitches on row. Piece measures approx. 100 cm = 39 3/8” measured along first stitch from right side.

SECTION-4 (stripes):
Continue to increase and decrease as before but now work stripes as follows:
Work 1 ridge with dark pink, 2 ridges with light camel, 1 ridge with dark pink, 1 ridge with old pink, 2 ridges with light camel, 1 ridges with old pink, 2 ridges with light camel, 1 ridge with old pink (= 11 ridges) = 116 stitches on needle. Piece measures approx. 110 cm = 43 3/8” measured along first stitch from right side.

SECTION-5 (mosaic pattern with old pink and off white):
Continue to increase and decrease as before but now work pattern as follows:
Work 1 ridge with old pink = 117 stitches.
Then work mosaic pattern with old pink and off white as follows:
Work A.3 over first stitch, A.4 over the next 18 stitches, work A.5 over the next 96 stitches (= 8 times in width), A.6 over 1 stitch and A.1 over last stitch (it is this stitch 2 stitches are worked in from right side. From wrong side work first stitch as A.3 and work 2nd stitch in pattern A.6). Loop to be picked up between 2 stitches on every row from wrong side are worked in A.6.
When A.3 to A.6 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat pattern vertically, every time the pattern is repeated work 1 repetition more of A.5 in width.
When A.3 to A.6 have been worked 2 times vertically (= 48 ridges), there are 165 stitches on row. Piece measures approx. 135 cm = 53” measured along first stitch from right side (approx. 3 cm = 1 1/8” remain). If you want a larger shawl repeat A.3 and A.6 vertically until desired measurements.

SECTION-6 (stripes):
Continue to increase and decrease as before but now work stripes as follows:
Work 2 ridges with light camel, 1 ridge with dark pink, 1 ridge with old pink and then bind off with old pink. Make sure to avoid a tight bind-off edge, bind off with 1 needle size larger if needed.

Ich verwende die identischen Farben wie in der Anleitung. Welche Farbe ist A bzw B im Mosaikmuster Bereich 3. Vielen Dank für ihre Hilfe

DROPS Design 29.11.2018 kl. 08:59:

Liebe Frau Grieshaber, im Mosaïkmuster Bereich 3 stricken Sie die Diagramme mit dunkelrosa und hellcamel - Farbe A = hellcamel und Farbe B = dunkelrosa. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Tanja 25.11.2018 - 08:52:

Hallo, das Diagramm A2 für die Größe S/M stimmt nicht. Wenn man dieses aneinanderreiht entsteht ein völlig anderes Muster. Ich habe die Größe S/ M nun mit den 12 Maschen der größeren Größe gestrickt und die übrigen Maschen dem Muster angepasst.

DROPS Design 28.11.2018 kl. 08:27:

Liebe Tanja, Danke für den Hinweis, A.2 wird in der 1. Grösse korrigiert, und wird 11 M gestrickt wird. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Britta 19.11.2018 - 19:44:

Hallo, ich möchte auch gerne wissen, ob die Rückseite so ausshieht wie die Vorderseite. Ein sehr schönes Muster!

DROPS Design 20.11.2018 kl. 11:38:

Liebe Britta, die Rückseite wird nicht gleich wie die Vorderseite sein - siehe dieses Video. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Sehr ansprechenden Farben! Ist das Muster mit Hebemaschen, so dass auch die Rückseite "ansehlich" ist?
