    Details

    Front and back

    The sweater is knitted in the round in one piece up to the armholes. Using the larger circular needle cast on 84(88)96(104)108(116) sts. Place a marker at the beginning of the round. Work ribbing in the round for 5 cm.

    Switch to stockinette st and on the front begin the cable pattern on row 1 of the chart: work 8(9)11(13)14(16) sts in stockinette st, work the 26 st cable pattern, work stockinette st to end of round. Work rows 2-8 of the chart, then keep repeating rows 1-8.

    When the piece measures 20(20)20(25)25(25) cm and you have last worked an odd-numbered row of the chart, divide the sts into two groups for the armholes. Work 8(9)11(13)14(16) sts in stockinette st, work the 26 st pattern, work 8(9)11(13)14(16) sts in stockinette st. Turn work and leave the remaining 42(44)48(52)54(58) back sts on hold on a piece of yarn.

    Top front

    Work flat with the 42(44)48(52)54(58) front sts. Resume the 26 st cable pattern in the middle while working 8(9)11(13)14(16) sts at the sides in stockinette st.

    When the armhole measures 20(20)25(25)30(30) cm, on a RS row k8(9)11(13)14(16), work the next 20(20)21(21)22(22) sts following the next row on the chart, leave the previous 14(14)16(16)18(18) sts on hold for the neckline, work the last 6(6)5(5)4(4) sts of the cable pattern and k8(9)11(13)14(16). Leave the 14(15)16(18)18(20) sts on the left on hold. Continue with the 14(15)16(18)18(20) shoulder sts on the right. On every RS row bind off 3x1 st at the neckline edge. Then bind off the remaining 11(12)13(15)15(17) sts.

    Place the left shoulder sts onto the needles and work the WS row first. On every WS row bind off 3x1 st at the neckline edge. When you have the same number of rows as on the other side, bind off the remaining 11(12)13(15)15(17) sts.

    Back

    Place the 42(44)48(52)54(58) back sts on the needles. Work stockinette st flat until the armhole measures 23(23)28(28)33(33) cm.

    On the next RS row k31(32)35(37)39(41), leave the previous 20(20)22(22)24(24) sts on hold for the neckline, work to end.

    With the 11(12)13(15)15(17) sts of the left shoulder purl the WS row. On the RS row, bind off.

    Place the right shoulder sts on the needles and purl the WS row, then bind off on the RS row.

    Sew or stitch the shoulder seams.

    Sleeves

    Work in the round starting from the armholes (see pattern for direction of knitting). Using the larger 40 cm circular needle, pick up sts from the armhole. Start at the bottom and pick up 20(20)24(24)28(28) sts from both edges = 40(40)48(48)56(56) sts. Work stockinette st in the round.

    When the sleeve measures 35(35)35(40)40(40) cm, on the next round evenly decrease 6(6)8(8)12(12) sts = 34(34)40(40)44(44) sts.

    Work 2 rounds in stockinette st, then evenly decrease 8(8)10(10)12(12) sts on the next round = 26(26)30(30)32(32) sts.

    Switch to the 10 mm double-pointed needles and work ribbing in the round for 5 cm. Bind off in pattern.

    Knit the other sleeve in the same manner.

    Finishing

    Pin to measurements and steam lightly.

    Neckline edge: Using the smaller circular needle, pick up and knit 2 sts from the right back neckline, place the 20(20)22(22)24(24) sts you left on hold back on the needle, then pick up 2 sts from the left back neckline. Pick up and knit 4 sts from the left front neckline, place the 14(14)16(16)18(18) sts on hold back on the needle, then pick up 4 sts from the right front neckline = 46(46)50(50)54(54) sts. Work 3 cm of ribbing in the round, then loosely bind off in pattern.

    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.
