EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
Knit all rows.
1 ridge in height = Knit 2 rows.

STRIPES:
H = main colour.
B = background colour.
22 cm with wheat (H) and blue (B)
3 cm with wheat (H)
22 cm with navy blue (H) and wheat (B)
5 cm with sea green (H)
22 cm with sea green (H) and black (B)
3 cm with wheat (H)
22 cm with wheat (H) and sea green (B)

5 cm with wheat (H)
Work 22 cm with wheat (H) and blue (B) – finish after row 4 in the English rib pattern.

KNITTING TIP-1:
The number of stitches should be divisible by 2 + 1. To get the 2-coloured English rib, work back and forth with circular needle as follows: Work row 1 in (H) as described below, then push all the stitches back to the first end of the circular needle so the next row is worked from the same side with colour (B) – then turn the piece and work the next 2 rows in the same way – i.e. 1 row with each colour, 2 rows, worked from the same side of the piece before turning and working back.

KNITTING TIP-2:
If you are in doubt about which colour the previous row was worked in, you can look at the colour of the edge stitch on that row.

2-COLOURED ENGLISH RIB WITH YARN OVERS:
ROW 1 (= right side), worked with main colour (H):
1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * knit together the yarn over and slipped stitch, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl *, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left, knit together the yarn over and slipped stitch, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
Push the stitches back to the first end of the circular needle (without turning the piece), so you work from the same side again. Change colour – read KNITTING TIPS-1 and 2).
ROW 2 (= right side), worked with background colour (B):
1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, purl together the yarn over and slipped stitch *, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Turn the piece and change colour.
ROW 3 (= wrong side), worked with main colour (H):
1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * purl together the yarn over and slipped stitch, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl *, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left, purl together the yarn over and slipped stitch, 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Push the stitches back to the other end of the circular needle (without turning the piece), so you work from the same side as the previous row. Change colour.
ROW 4 (= wrong side), worked with background colour (B):
1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit together the yarn over and slipped stitch *, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Turn the piece and change colour.
Repeat rows 1-4 onwards.

1-COLOURED ENGLISH RIB WITH YARN OVERS, worked with main colour (= H):
2 rows of English rib show 1 visible knitted stitch.
ROW 1 (= right side): 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * knit 1, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl *, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left, knit 1 and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit together the yarn over and slipped stitch *, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.
ROW 3 (= right side): 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, * knit together the yarn over and slipped stitch, 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl *, work from *-* until there are 2 stitches left, knit together the yarn over and slipped stitch and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.

Ist es richtig, daß zwei einfarbige Streifen über 5cm gestrickt werden und die anderen einfarbigen je über 3cm? Es ist ja dann garnicht symmetrisch.

DROPS Design 26.08.2019 kl. 08:37:

Liebe Kristin, die Streifen stimmen wie beschrieben, die einfarbigen Streifen werden entweder 3 oder 5 cm gestrickt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!
