Back

Using the smaller needles cast on 106(114)122(138)146(154) sts and work ribbing.

When the piece measures approx. 3 cm, finish on a RS row and switch to the larger needles. Purl the WS row and increase 1 st = 107(115)123(139)147(155) sts. Work 2 rows in stockinette st.

Begin the lace pattern on row 17(17)9(9)1(1) of the chart: work 1 edge st, begin the lace pattern at the correct starting point for your size, keep repeating the 16 st pattern until 1 st remains, work the last st. Keep 1 edge st at both ends. Work rows 18(18)10(10)2(2)–80 of the chart. Then keep repeating rows 9–80 for the rest of the piece.

When the piece measures 35(36)37(38)40(41) cm, on every other row bind off 1x5(5)6(7)7(8) sts, 1(2)3(3)4(4)x2 sts and 2(2)2(3)3(4)x1 st at both ends for the armholes = 89(93)95(107)111(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 17(18)19(20)20(21) cm, bind off the middle 41 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 19(20)21(22)22(23) cm, bind off the 20(22)23(29)31(33) shoulder sts.

Knit the other side in the same manner.

When the armhole measures 19(20)21(22)22(23) cm, bind off the 20(22)23(29)31(33) shoulder sts.

Sleeves

Using the smaller needles cast on 52(54)56(56)58(60) sts and work ribbing.

When the piece measures approx. 8 cm, finish on a RS row and switch to the larger needles. Purl the WS row and increase 1 st = 53(55)57(57)59(61) sts. Work 2 rows in stockinette st.

Begin the lace pattern on row 9 of the chart. The midpoint of the piece is marked with an arrow, use that to determine the starting point. Keep repeating the 16 st pattern as needed. Keep 1 edge st at both ends. Work rows 10–80 of the chart. Then keep repeating rows 9–80 for the rest of the piece.

Note: When the piece measures 13(11)13(12)10(9) cm, increase 1 st at both ends next to the edge sts. Repeat the increases every 3,5(3,5)3(2,5)2,5(2,5) cm 8(9)10(13)14(15) more times = 71(75)79(85)89(93) sts. Work the increased sts following the chart.

When the piece measures 44(45)46(47)47(48) cm, on every other row bind off 1x5(5)5(6)6(6) sts, 3(2)3(3)3(3)x2 sts, 12(13)15(14)16(17)x1 st, 2(3)2(3)3(3)x2 sts and 1x3 sts at both ends. Bind off remaining sts.
