Grüner Fallmaschen-Schal

Wunderbar kuschelig ist dieser Schal geworden. Und dank der extrem dicken Wolle wurde er auch an einem Nachmittag fertig.

Kraus rechts, und alle paar Reihen mehrere Umschläge pro Masche, die dann in der nächten Reihe einfach fallen gelassen werden.

Die Wolle stammt aus dem Schachenmayrwerksverkauf. Übrigens hat das Entwirren dieser seltsamen "Wicklung" länger gedauert, als das Stricken selber ;-). Die Anleitung zu diesem Schal steht auf der Innenseite der Banderole.

Hello Ulli
Do you speak English - specifically knitters English. I would like to ask you a question about "Grüner Fallmaschen-Schala" you posted on 9th Jan 2013 if this is not too much of an imposition.
Regards
Joyce Grimshaw

Hello Joyce, yes I do speak English, also knitting English. If I can be any help to you I'd try my best.

Hi Ulli
Thank you for your prompt reply.
My problem is:- I bought Schachenmayr yarn to knit the Artoro Scarf which you accomplished in Jan 2013, in northern Norway. However, the patterns inside the ball band were only in Norwegian, Swedish and Danish (I established this with the help of Google translate). Google translate doesn't understand knitting!
I can understand the garter stitch up to row 4. After that (row 5 and 6), I have tried and failed to accomplish anything that resembles the picture on your blog. Do you remember how it was done? I would be so grateful.
Also I can't figure out what it is saying about the fringing. Is it supposed to go up the sides of the scarf as well as both ends, because 208 pieces of fringing seems an awful lot for just he top and bottom.
Please don't let this cause you to waste too much time on, as I suppose I might eventually meet a Scandanavian knitter in this lifetime!
Regards
Joyce Grimshaw
P.S. Your children are delightful.

Hello Joyce, I just realized that you were still waiting for an answer, I am so sorry it took me so long to answer.
I don't remember exactly how this pattern is knitted, and I can't find it right now. But I do remember, that the fringes in the original pattern go around the whole shawl, not only the top and buttom the way I did it.
I remember also that you make the big rows by a couple of yarn overs, don' know how many there was, maybe 4-6 yo per each stitch. In the back row you just drop them. That makes an extra large stitch.
Hope that this is enough help for you.

Thank you Ulli for getting back to me. I will give your remembered instructions a go, but I have lots more time now until next winter. (Oh what a depressing thought).
I will try and post you a photo if I can figure out how (to post a photo I mean).
Regards
Joyce
