SHAWL – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
To have room for all the stitches, the piece is worked back and forth with circular needle from the tip on the one side of the shawl and outwards. The whole shawl is worked in garter stitch with 2 strands Kid-Silk and 1 strand Alpaca.

SHAWL:
Cast on 3 stitches with circular needle size 7 mm = US 10,75 and 1 strand light lavender Kid-Silk + 1 strand grey Kid-Silk + 1 strand light camel Alpaca (= 3 strands). Knit 1 row from the right side.
Then work GARTER STITCH and SPECKLED STRIPES – read descriptions above, at the same time as you increase as follows:
ROW 1 (wrong side): Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit 1 = 5 stitches.
ROW 2 (right side): Knit.
ROW 3 (wrong side): Knit 2 together, work until there is 1 stitch left on the row, make 1 yarn over and knit 1.
ROW 4 (right side): Knit.
ROW 5 (wrong side): Knit until there are 2 stitches left on the row, make 1 yarn over, knit 1, 1 yarn over and knit 1.
Repeat rows 2- 5 until the stripes are finished or to desired length.
Bind off as described below.

BINDING OFF:
Bind off with knit from the right side as follows: Knit 2, * insert the left needle into the 2 stitches on the right needle from left to right and knit together, knit 1 *, work from *-* until there is 1 stitch left. Cut the strands and pull them through the remaining stitch. Binding off like this makes the edge elastic. Fasten all strands.

Je souhaiterais faire ce modèle mais sans varier les couleurs, quelle quantité de kidsilk et alapca acheter?

DROPS Design 07.08.2019 kl. 12:50:

Bonjour Annesophie, nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir ajuster chacun de nos modèles à chaque demande, comme ce modèle a été tricoté avec des rayures, nous avons seulement la quantité totale pour chaque couleur. Vous pouvez additionner toutes les couleurs pour avoir une idée de la quantité totale. Votre magasin DROPS pourra fort probablement vous aider si besoin. Bon tricot!
