EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.6. The diagrams show all rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SHAWL - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle so that you have room for all the stitches. It is worked top down.

SHAWL:
Cast on 9 stitches with circular needle size 8 mm. Work 1 RIDGE - see description above. Insert a marker in the middle stitch on the row (= mid-stitch).
Work as follows from the right side: 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, make 1 yarn over, knit 2, 1 yarn over, 1 stitch in stocking stitch (= mid-stitch), make 1 yarn over, knit 2 , 1 yarn over and finish with 2 edge stitches in garter stitch = 13 stitches. Knit 1 row from the wrong side.

Work according to diagrams A.1-A.3 as follows from the right side:
Work 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, A.1 over 1 stitch, repeat A.2 until there is 1 stitch left before the mid-stitch, work A.3 over 1 stitch, 1 stitch in stocking stitch (= mid-stitch), A.1 over 1 stitch, repeat A.2 until there are 3 stitches left on the row, work A.3 over 1 stitch and 2 edge stitches in garter stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the diagrams have been worked 1 time in height there are 35 stitches on the needle.
Work according to diagrams A.4-A.6 as follows from the right side:
Work 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, A.4 over 1 stitch, A.5 over 12 stitches, A.6 over 2 stitches, 1 stitch in stocking stitch (= mid-stitch), work A.4 over 1 stitch, A.5 over 12 stitches, A.6 over 2 stitches and finish with 2 edge stitches in garter stitch. When the diagrams have been worked 1 time in height there are 59 stitches on the needle.

Continue working according to diagrams A.4-A.6, but each time the diagrams are worked 1 time in height, there will be 1 more repeat of A.5 between A.4 and A.6 on each side of the mid-stitch. Work like this until the piece measures approx. 106 cm measured along the mid-stitch; adjust to finish after a complete repeat of the diagrams in height. Work 1 ridge over all stitches.

CASTING OFF:
To avoid the cast-off edge being tight, cast off with a double strand. Cut a strand of approx. 4-5 metres and use this strand together with the other strand when casting off in knit. Cut and fasten the strands.

Diagram

= knit from right side, purl from wrong side
= knit from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 2 yarn overs; on the next row knit the one yarn over and drop the other.
= knit 2 stitches together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted together stitches

Jeg har fundet ud af det, så i behøver ikke svare på mit tidligere spørgsmål. Jeg fik bare ikke læst opskriften korrekt.

Godt at høre Jette :)

Jeg kan ikke forstå hvordan jeg kan få diagram a4-a6 til at passe efter første gennemgang. Jeg har plads til to a5, men hvordan skal jeg strikke mellem de to.
