EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:  PATTERN: See diagrams A.1 to A.13. Diagram A.1 shows the entire beginning of piece. Diagrams A.3, A.5, A.7, A.9, A.11 and A.13 show the middle of shawl. Chain space in the middle of these diagrams = middle space. Diagrams A.2, A.4, A.6, A.8, A.10 and A.12 show half the shawl. Therefore read the diagrams from right to left the first time a row is worked, then work in the middle of shawl, then read diagrams from left to right the second time a row is worked. STRIPES: See number in diagram. 1 = off white 2 = yellow 3 = strong yellow CROCHET INFORMATION: Replace first double crochet at beginning of row with 3 chain stitches. Replace first treble crochet at beginning of row with 4 chain stitches. COLOR CHANGE (worked back and forth): When changing color work as follows: Work last double crochet/ treble crochet with first color but wait with last pull through, switch to next color and work last pull through, then work next double crochet/treble crochet.

Would it be possible to get a clearer picture of the completed shawl spread out? I’m stuck on A.6b as i can’t seem to get the middle bobbles into a “x” shape like you have without having to make 6 bobbles in a row. I think a full view of the shawl would be great help.

Dear Cccc, the bottom bobble will be worked on the 4th row: 1 boble at the beg of each A.6b (you repeat A.6b a total of 5 times) + 1 at the beg of A.6c (before middle of shawl) => you should have now 6 bobles, then on the other side of piece, 1 boble at the end of A.6c then at the end of each beg of each A.6b (5times = 5 bobles) => 6 bobbles on this first bobblerow  do not hesitate to add marker between each repeat, this can help to get the correct number of repeats. Happy crocheting!

Bonjour Je ne comprends pas le début. Ils disent qu’on doit avoir 22 mailles en tout mais je n’en ai que 14. Pourquoi ? Merci
12.07.2023  18:53DROPS Design answered:
Bonjour Sophie, les mailles en l'air sont aussi comptees comme les mailles. Vous avez le nombre correct de mailles: 22 mailles au total + l’arceau (celui au milieu du chal). Bon crochet!

A6.b : 70 dc divide by 14 double crochet = 17.5 not 20 .. your maths is wrong. In the photo of the model I counted bows and they are 16 ….by taking out just 1 dc * 5 = 1 bow cannot add 4 bows ….please advise
09.04.2023  18:03DROPS Design answered:
Dear Dimpy, the pattern is correct, 70/14 = 5. So you work 5 times A.6b. All increases are indicated in the charts, so you don't need to add anything that isn't in the charts. Happy crochetting!

Aby osiągnąć 20 łuków w 1szym rzędzie schematu A.6, trzeba omijać kolejno 3, 3, 2, 2 oczka  i to powtórzyć 4 razy, a ostatnie, piąte powtórzenie to 3, 3, 2, 3  i teraz w łuk  słupek, 3 oczka łańcuszka i słupek, a dalej lustrzane odbicie. Żeby to osiągnąć musiałam pruć trzy razy  mimo tego, że przeczytałam wszystkie komentarze... Kilka Waszych wzorów już robiłam  bez problemów. Niestety Wasz opis tego miejsca jest bardzo niezrozumiały :)

Nie wiem jak robić schemat A 6, jak zacząć i co ile oczek robić oczko ścisłe? Ile łuków powinno powstać w pierwszym rzędzie?
28.05.2021  14:43DROPS Design answered:
Witaj Bożeno, wykonujesz 1szy rząd schematu. Oczko ścisłe jest przerabiane w słupek, omijasz 3 kolejne słupki (a 1 raz 2, patrz schemat A.6b) i przerabiasz 1 oczko ścisłe w następny słupek. Po zakończeniu 1szego rzędu będziesz miała 20 łuków z każdej strony łuku na środku (= w sumie 40 łuków + łuk na środku, czyli łącznie 41 łuków). Pozdrawiamy!

No comprendo la explicación del punto mota. ¿los puntos bajísimos se enganchan a una cadena o al arco?

Hola Karen, tienes que trabajar alrededor del arco abajo. La explicación del punto mota encontreras AQUI. Buen trabajo!
