    Details

    Using the white yarn, cast on 44(48) sts and divide them onto four needles, 11(12) sts each. *K2, p2*, repeat *-* to end of round.

    Begin the lace pattern in the round on row 1 of chart I. Work the 4 st pattern repeat 11(12) times. Work rows 2-4 of the chart and then repeat rows 1-4 three times.

    Knit 1 round, evenly increasing 1(2) sts on each needle = 48(56) sts.

    Begin the colourwork pattern on row 1 of chart II. Work the 8 st pattern repeat 6(7) times. Work rows 2-36 of the chart.

    Knit 1 round with the white yarn, evenly decreasing 1(2) sts on each needle = 44(48) sts. Now work another lace section as in the beginning.

    Begin the heel flap: knit the sts on needle I onto needle IV = 22(24) sts. Leave the other sts on hold. Turn work and begin the reinforced st pattern:

    Row 1: (WS) slip 1 st (yarn in back), purl to end of row. Turn work.

    Row 2: (RS) *slip 1 st (yarn in back), k1*, repeat *-* to end of row. Turn work.

    Repeat rows 1-2 a total of 11(12) times = 22(24) rows.

    Work another WS row and begin turning the heel. Continue working the reinforced st pattern as established. Work until 8(9) sts remain at the left end of the heel flap. Work the skp decrease (= slip 1 st knitwise, k1, pass the slipped st over) and turn work. Slip 1 st, p6(6), p2tog. Turn work. Slip 1 st, work until 7(8) sts remain, skp. Continue in the same manner, decreasing sts at the sides with 8(8) sts in the middle. When only the middle sts remain, distribute the heel flap sts onto two needles, 4 sts each.

    Using a free needle, pick up 11(12) sts from the left end of the heel flap + 1 st. Knit the picked-up sts through the back loop onto needle I. Knit the sts on needles II and III. Pick up 11(12) sts from the right end of the heel flap + 1 st from between the needles. Knit the picked-up sts through the back loop onto needle IV. 54(58) sts now on the needles.

    Knit 1 round with white and work the gusset decreases: k2tog at the end of needle I, skp at the beginning of needle IV. Work stockinette st, alternating 1 round of blue with 2 rounds of white. Repeat the decreases as established on every other round until 44(48) sts remain, 11(12) sts per needle.

    Size 34: When the sole measures 16 cm, decrease 1 st on each needle = 40 sts.

    When the sole measures approx. 17(20) cm (including the heel) or the sock covers your fifth toe and you have last worked the blue round, work the rest of the sock with the white yarn.

    At the same point begin the toe decreases: k2tog at the midpoint and end of each needle = 32(40) sts. Work 3(4) rounds without decreases, then repeat the decreases as established = 24(32) sts. Work 2(3) rounds without decreases and repeat the decreases = 16(24) sts. 1 less round without decreases after each decrease round. Continue in this manner until 8 sts remain.

    Break the yarn, pull it through the sts and securely weave in.

    Knit the other sock to match.

    Finishing

    Lightly steam the socks.

    Skill levels

    Beginner

    Have you just learned to knit, maybe still trying to figure out the very basics like knit and purl stitches? Or are you picking up knitting again for the first time since elementary school? Start here.

    Technique

    Beginner-level patterns include only basic knitting techniques: knitting and purling. You’ll also need to cast on and cast off stitches. The projects can be worked flat or in the round. Easy, regular decreases are used. Most patterns are worked in stockinette or garter stitch. Other simple stitch patterns may occur, and they are always detailed in the written pattern. Stripes of different colours may be used, but no more advanced colourwork.

    Patterns

    All patterns are written and do not include charts. Abbreviations are not used. Getting gauge is not crucial to the finished piece. Patterns include mostly accessories such as scarved and beanies. Pillowcases and other home decoration pieces.

    Adventurous beginner

    Got the basics covered? You’d like to take a swing at your first pair of socks, perhaps some easy cables or colourwork? A treasure of patterns awaits you on this level.

    Technique

    Patterns on this level may include simple colourwork, cables or lace. Colourwork patterns repeats are relatively short, cables simple and symmetrical and lace patterns easy and relatively small, covering details rather than entire pieces. The colourwork, cable and lace stitches are not worked into decreases or increases. Colourwork yarn floats are short, max. 3-4 stitches. Picking up stitches may occur. On this level, you’ll also find easy patterns using domino knitting, log cabin knitting or tunisian crochet.

    Patterns

    Patterns may include simple charts. In case special techniques are employed, they are detailed our in the instructions, either as text or e.g. through videos. The patterns may also suggest ”shortcuts”, i.e. easier ways to accomplish a technique. Most of the basic socks with heel flaps or afterthought heels are on this level, as well as mittens with no-gusset thumbs. There’s also plenty of sweaters, usually yoke sweaters or raglan sleeve sweaters.

    Intermediate

    So knitting is a regular hobby for you? Abbreviations, charts and instructions are no more than a walk in the park? Perhaps you’re looking for something to challenge yourself with, even at the odds of frogging?

    Technique

    In addition to basic techniques, some special techniques may be employed on this level, e.g. short rows. The same pattern may include both lace and cables. Magic loop knitting or entrelac, two-coloured brioche stitch, also here. In general, patterns require a more advanced ability to "read" your knitting. Lace patterns are also more advanced than on the previous level, but the lace stitches are still worked on right side only. Intarsia may be included, but in relatively simple and symmetrical patterns.

    Patterns

    Patterns on this level can feature concurrent shaping, e.g. neckline shaping at the same time as sleeve decreases or sleeve decreases into cable pattern. Sweater sleeves may require more advanced shaping. Most of our sweaters are at this level. Other patterns include e.g. magic loop patterns and toe-up socks.

    Advanced

    Turn off that telly and lash the doors, maximum concetration required! Although this skill level doesn’t bring much more in terms of technique, there’s simply more going on at the same time. Skill, concentration and perception are requisite.

    Technique

    On this level, you’ll find more advanced intarsia patterns, including intarsia in the round. Brioche patterns with decreases and/or cables are also here. Beginning of rounds may shift and multiple markers are needed. Lace or cable stitches may be worked also from wrong side. We’ve also included patterns featuring steeks here. Steeking isn’t hard as such, but requires the nerves and confidence of an experienced knitter.

    Patterns

    Patterns may include complex steps and require simultaneous reading of both charts and written instructions. Gauge may vary over different steps of the project. The patterns often feature much details and a combination of techniques. The size of the project is not what determines whether it’s advanced or not; focus is on technique, overall complexity and the risk of errors during the project.

    Gauge & Swatching

    Gauge and Swatching

    Every pattern is based on a certain gauge, expressed as stitches or rows per 10 cm. It is important that you make a swatch to check your gauge before you start the actual project. If your gauge doesn’t match the pattern’s gauge, your finished garment won’t be the correct size either.

    Swatching Start by knitting a swatch. Use the yarn, the needles and the stitch pattern you intend to use in the project. Make the swatch a little wider than 10 cm, so that you’ll be able to measure the stitches properly. Block the swatch by pinning it to a surface, then steam it gently. Count the stitches; put a pin in a stitch, then measure 10 cm from that stitch and put another pin there. Count the stitches from pin to pin – that’s your gauge! If needed, measure both horizontal and vertical gauge (rows). If you’re measuring rib or brioche stitches, stretch out the swatch slightly before measuring.

    Adjusting gauge

    If your gauge doesn’t match the pattern gauge, you can adjust it by switching needle size. If your swatch has too few stitches per 10 cm (i.e. your knitting is too loose), switch to smaller needles. Conversely, if your swatch has too many stitches per 10 cm, your knitting is too tight and you’ll need a larger pair of needles. Always knit another swatch in order to determine proper gauge and sizing. Also note that the pattern yardage only applies to the pattern yarn, the yardage may differ if you choose another yarn.
