Back

Using the smaller needles cast on 90(98)106(114)122(130) sts and begin ribbing on the WS with p2. Work ribbing for 5 cm.

Switch to the larger needles and work 4 rows in stockinette st. On the first row evenly increase 3 sts = 93(101)109(117)125(133) sts.

*Begin the 1st lace stripe on row 1 of chart I(II)III(IV)V(VI): work the 8(1)5(9)2(6) st(s) at the right end of the chart, repeat the 11 st pattern 7(9)9(9)11(11) times, work the 8(1)5(9)2(6) st(s) at left. Work rows 2–4 of the chart, then repeat rows 1–4 twice.

Work 4 rows in stockinette st.

Begin the 2nd lace stripe on row 1 of chart VII: work 1 st at right, then keep repeating the 2 st pattern to end of row. Work rows 2–10 of the chart.

Work 4 rows in stockinette st.* Repeat *–* for the rest of the piece.

Note: When the piece measures 44(45)46(47)48(49) cm, bind off 1x4 sts at both ends for the armholes and on every other row decrease 5x1 st at both ends = 75(83)91(99)107(115) sts. Note: Each decrease in the lace pattern must be paired with a yarn over to maintain the number of sts. If you can’t work both the decrease and the yo, knit the sts instead.

 

When the armhole measures 18(19)20(21)22(23) cm, securely bind off the middle 27(27)27(29)29(29) sts for the neckline. Work one side at a time. On every other row bind off 2x2 sts at the neckline edge.

When the armhole measures 20(21)22(23)24(25) cm, bind off the remaining 20(24)28(31)35(39) shoulder sts. Knit the other side in the same manner.

Note: When the piece measures 44(45)46(47)48(49) cm, bind off 1x4 sts at the right end and on every other row decrease 5x1 st at the right end.

When the armhole measures 20(21)22(23)24(25) cm, bind off the remaining 20(24)28(31)35(39) shoulder sts.

Border: Using the smaller circular needle pick up and knit sts from the front edges and back neckline. Start on the RS at the bottom corner of the right front piece. Pick up 20 sts per 10 cm. Make sure the number of sts is divisible by 4. Begin ribbing: (WS) p3, k2, *p2, k2*, repeat *–*, p3.
