Rätik on valmis. Aga siin on mitu seika juures. Olen üht-teist õppinud. Sirbikujulised rätikud on reeglina sellise konstruktsiooniga, et 2 rea kohta lisandub 6 silmust või 4 silmust. Selle esimesega on selge, selline on nt Serenade rätik.
The shawl is finished. But there are some issues. I've learned something useful. Sickleshaped shawls are usually constructed so that per 2 rows there are 6 increases or 4 increases. With the former it is more or less clear, for instace, Serenade shawl is an example.
What about the latter? Here a lot depends on the yarn, bind off techniques and blockign. In principale one can get also a triangular shawl with long ends. If you bind off rather losely, it is possible to obtain a sickle shaped shawl like this one.
What is the connection between sickle shaped shawl and the above mentioned triagular shawl? The beginning can be angular. Look at this picture (from Ravelry).
Why then my black-and-grey shawl is (almost) without the bump? The yarn is merino, very soft, yet heavy, and the fabric is loose (garter stitch with large needles). However, this time it occured that I blocked the shawl ad noticed that there is a bump. My yarn is a very light mohair-wool blend, the pattern is based on stockinette stitch. As my shawl is with colour blocks, I realized how to improve it. I cut of the beginning (the portion with the first colour) and knitted a couple of rows in the opposite direction.
Thus, you have to start with a larger number of stitches. This is how I started a new one.
Hopefully, I will get normal pictures soon. But my husbad already said that the shawl was very warm and that he wanted it for himself.
