Work 2 edge stitches in GARTER STITCH, work A.1 over 3 stitches, 1 mid-stitch in stocking stitch, A.2 over 3 stitches and work 2 edge stitches in GARTER STITCH.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When the diagrams have been worked 1 time in height there are 29 stitches on the needle.

Work 2 edge stitches in GARTER STITCH, A.3 over 1 stitch, A.4 over 10 stitches (1 time in width), work A.5 over 1 stitch, 1 mid-stitch in stocking stitch, A.6 over 1 stitch, A.7 over 10 stitches (1 time in width), A.8 over 1 stitch and 2 edge stitches in GARTER STITCH. When the diagrams have been worked 1 time in height there are 89 stitches on needle (= 60 stitches increased).

Continue working according to diagrams A.3-A.8, but each time they are worked 1 time in height there is room for 3 more repeats in width of A.4 between A.3/A.5 and 3 more repeats of A.7 between A.6/A.8.

Work according to diagrams A.3-A.8 until you have worked them a total of 5 times in height; the piece measures approx. 66 cm measured along the mid-stitch and there are a total of 329 stitches on needle.

Per alleggerirlo un po' potrei usare un capo di flora e uno di alpaca?? non voglio utilizzare i Silk perché contraria alla seta) grazie

DROPS Design 07.05.2019 kl. 08:51:

Buongiorno Mary. Sì, può usare anche Flora, oppure anche Fabel in tinta unita. Essendo uno scialle e quindi più facile adattare le misure, potrebbe eventualmente anche valutare un filato (usato con 1 solo capo) del gruppo B anche se leggermente più sottile di dua filati del gruppo A, come p.es Puna o Cotton Merino. Buon lavoro!

Mary 06.05.2019 - 20:58:

Buongiorno, vorrei sapere se è possibile lavorare questo modello con due capi del filato alpaca(100%) grazie

DROPS Design 06.05.2019 kl. 21:49:

Buongiorno Mary. Il filato Kid Silk è molto sottile e peloso, mentre Alpaca è molto meno peloso. Può lavorare lo scialle con 2 capi di Alpaca: risulterà un po’ più pesante. Verifichi di ottenere lo stesso campione indicato. Buon lavoro!
