I worked with Google translate to get going but your translations makes much more sense!
I have a challenge with the 3/3, found on another site this helpful note… 🙂
knit 3 stitches from 3 stitches, knit 3 stitches together and increase of them 3 stitches: 3 gathered stitches, knit 3 stitches together but do not slip these stitches from the left needle, (yo, knit the same 3 stitches together again and leave on the needle as before) 2 times, then slip the 3 stitches from the left needle. Be sure to work these stitches in the correct order on the following row.
Is this the way to go?
The stitch 3/3 is the same as Laminaria’s 3-into-3 star. I copy here the explanation from there: K3tog without dropping sts from left needle; yo, k same 3 sts together again and drop from left needle. Number of sts has not changed.
I hope now that stitch will not caused any problem for knitters.
I saw that you are a member of Raverly, there you can show your pictures of shawl progress :). If you understand enough estonian-language you can later up-load the picture of finished shawl at forum Isetegija.
Wow, thanks. I’m now a “nup knitter” 🙂
Question on Clue 1…..I’ve looked and looked and cannot find any mention of even rows. The chart shows only odd rows, what do you do on the even rows?
Perhaps I overlooked it?
Thanks so much. I have two friends coming today and we’re each starting this lovely shawl, I’m so excited!!
Thank you 🙂
If you read the page 2 of Clue1, you can see the text:
“All chart sts in WS are purled, unless otherwise stated. Except double YO-s, where first yo is purl stitch and the second yo knit stitch.”
The WS rows are even rows. NB! Look carefully at Chart 1, there are marked some even rows (WS) and those have to knit instead of purling.
Thanks again. I do see it talking about the WS rows, I had a mental block!! 🙂
Had our meeting today and my friends are excited. They love the shawl as much as I do. We knitted, ripped, knitted, ripped and knitted again, but it’s fun and seems to be coming along. I just finished row 17 and did my first nupps!! Now I’m ready to go back and purl them together….can’t wait to see how pretty they are.
Thanks again, so much, for this absolutely lovely pattern!!!
I am learning so much from this KAL and I am enjoying myself quite a bit. I appear to have hit a snag though in clue 6, row 107. I understand that the extra bits to the right and left of the center chart need to be knitted just before and after the repeats of the main chart but I am having trouble in the count for the main chart. Should the number of repeats in row 105 equal the number of repeats for row 107? I use lots of stitch markers and I seem to have more repeats of 107 than 105. Any help would be appreciated.
If you look at chart you’ll see that at row 105 have first stitch (right) and then repeated section of stitches (middle part), no last stitch . At row 107 there are right and left section, and in the middle repeated section. At both rows the repeats are the same – 30 repeats.
i really like the pattern and think it is pretty but there are several problems in the pattern that are making me so confused. in the first 11 rows of chart 1 alone there are a few areas where if you follow the pattern there is no way you will have enough stitches to do the next row.
in row 5 you repeat a pattern with 4 stitches 6 times, 4×6 is 24 stitches. yet in row 3 you only increase 2 stitches in one stitch for 6 stitches, 2×6 is 12 stitches…… ??? where do the other 12 stitches come from???
in row 9 you add 2 stitches for each repeat of the pattern 6 times and end with 48 stitches, 8×6 is 48. yet in row 11 you need 53 stitches to complete the row, 5 times 9 stitches for the first pattern plus the extra 8. 5×9 is 45 plus 8 is 53. 5 missing stitches…..????
and that is only the first 6 lines of the first clue. every one else on the comments seems to have figured out the pattern fine, i see no other comments like mine but i have had to start over 4 times and still cant get it right. the pattern is really beautiful and i want to be able to make this right but the math is so off and i am really confused.
just to let you know.
I’m sorry that you have a trouble with the pattern. I try to explain a little.
At row 3 you made 6 times 2 from 1, it’s 12 stitches. Then you start row 5, and at one repeat you need to knit, make double yo and knit again. So you have a 12 knit stitch and 12 yo’s and that matches with last odd row very well :), the keyword is here 12 knit stitches..
The secret key for this is increasing by yo’s ;), it means that the number of stitches at next row can’t match with number of stitches at previous row.
Try again and I hope you will succeed.
I too, am having trouble with row 107. On clue 6….there are actually 3 charts. The main one and one on each side….but it isn’t clear what to do with these. I’m assuming it’s like before and you knit them as the edge stitches before and after the main chart? However, the repeat of the center chart for row 103 and 105 was 13 stitches. I only count 11 for row 107. What do I do with the extra 2 stitches for each repeat of the chart?
Any help would be appreciated, please reply also to my email – email@example.com
I have two friends who are making this with me and we’re getting together Wednesday to do this clue, am hoping to have an answer before they get here!!
Thanks so much, Brenda
Sorry, but I haven’t Russian translation. I suggest to ask from Raverler Ksenofontik (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ksenofontik), because she had to translate it to herself (she wrote it to me :D). May be she can help you.
Hi, We just finished this shawl, and while it is beautiful, we are both a bit disappointed. It does not look like the pictures in ravelry. It doesn’t have nearly the number of rows, and there are no points around the bottom edge. I used the 6 clues….perhaps we got the wrong pattern?
Again, don’t get me wrong, it’s a beautiful little shawl, but not nearly as long as the one pictured. Ours looks like the very last ravelry picture….the white one that is being blocked at the bottom…..rounded edge, no points!!
Perhaps there is another pattern for the wine colored and the multi colored shawl?!?!?
Thanks for any info….
No, there arn’t different patterns. And there are 6 clues. At Ravelrys pattern page the last photo is made after finishing Clue2, so it is not a final shawl picture.
You tryed to block the shawl and pin the points at edge? And you couldn’t do that? I wish I could be close to you, from here I can’t help you….
I’m sorry but I can’t understand even by help Google translator what is your problem. Is it about Clue2? There you cast on 12 addidional stitches and knit back and forth these stitches, and join the last stitch to the main part. I hope there is someone who can explain it in French.
Hi, Thank you for your beautiful pattern. I’m having trouble with clue 2. When I finished row 1, I had 71 stitches on the needle. I cast the additional stitches and started with the pattern but I don’t see how I get 90 rows out of the 71 stitches. Can you please help?
After picking up yarn overs from the 12 stitches casted on in Clue 2, I had 105 stitches. Should I just go back far enough in pattern to the cast off so that I get the 91 stitches? I too admire how absolutely beautiful this pattern is!
