Back

Using the Linen yarn and the smaller needles cast on 106(114)122(134) sts and begin ribbing on the WS with p2.

When the ribbing measures 5(6)6(6) cm and you have last worked a RS row, purl 1 row evenly increasing 0(2)2(0) sts = 106(116)124(134) sts.

Switch to the larger needles. Begin the texture and intarsia pattern on row 9(9)5(1) of chart I: work the 92 st pattern and knit the remaining 14(24)32(42) sts using Linen. Keep working the 14(24)32(42) sts at the left end in stockinette st using Linen. At the right end, work rows 10(10)6(2)–80 of the chart. Note: The off-white details are embroidered on the finished work.

Continue on row 81 of chart II: work the 75 st pattern at the right end and work the remaining sts in stockinette st using Linen. Work rows 82–152 of the chart.

Note: When the piece measures 36(37)38(39) cm, place a marker (e.g. a piece of different-coloured yarn) for the bottom of the armhole at both ends.

After row 152 of chart II, continue on row 153 of chart III. Work the 74 st pattern at the right end and work the remaining sts in stockinette st using Linen. Work rows 154–188 as needed.

Note: When the armhole measures 20(21)22(23) cm, bind off the middle 26 sts for the neckline. Work one side at a time. On every other row bind off 4x2 sts at the neckline edge and at the same time on every other row bind off 3x6 sts and 2x7 sts (3x7 sts and 2x8 sts) 4x8 sts and 1x9 sts (4x9 sts and 1x10 sts) at the shoulder.

Knit the other side in the same manner.

 

Front

Work like back but begin the neckline decreases when the armhole measures 16(17)18(19) cm. Leave the middle 14 sts on hold for the neckline. Work one side at a time. On every other row bind off 2x3 sts, 2x2 sts and 4x1 st at the neckline edge. Bind off the shoulder sts at the same spot as on the back piece.

Knit the other side in the same manner.

 

Sleeves

Using Linen and the smaller needles cast on 48(50)50(52) sts and work ribbing for 5(6)6(6) cm.
