    Details

    needles, 20 sts on each. The beginning of the round is always between needles IV and I. Work ribbing in the round until the piece measures 4,5 cm. Now knit stockinette stitch in the round for 5 rounds.

    Begin the colourwork in the round from row 1 of chart: repeat the 24 st pattern repeat 3 times and knit 8 sts from the right end of the pattern repeat. Knit through rows 2-10 of the chart. Using the off-white yarn knit 5 rounds in stockinette stitch.

    Continue the colourwork from row 11 of the chart and repeat the 40 st pattern repeat 2 times. Knit through rows 2-20 of the chart. Knit 5 rounds in stockinette stitch using the off-white yarn and then knit rows 21-33 of the chart. Knit 5 rounds in stockinette stitch using the off-white yarn and then knit rows 34-43 of the chart.

    Knit 5 rounds in stockinette stitch using the off-white yarn and on the 1st round decrease 3 sts evenly = 77 sts.

    Work rows 21-23 of the chart. Keep repeating the pattern repeat until the end of round (the last repeat is not a full one). Knit row 24 and decrease 3 sts evenly = 74 sts. Knit rows 25-28 of the chart, knit row 29 and at the same time decrease 5 sts evenly = 69 sts. Knit rows 30-33 of the chart.

    Knit 2 rounds in stockinette stitch using the off-white yarn and on the 1st round decrease 5 sts evenly = 64 sts. Knit 2 more rounds and on the 2nd round decrease 4 sts evenly = 60 sts.

    From row 11 of the chart, knit the 40 st pattern repeat once and then 20 more sts from the right end of the pattern. Knit rows 12-20 of the chart. Knit 5 rounds with the off-white yarn and on the 1st round decrease 4 sts evenly = 56 sts. Distribute the sts evenly on the needles, 14 sts on each.

    Change to the smaller needles and knit 4 rounds using the off-white yarn.

    Continue the colourwork from row 26 of the chart: repeat the 40 st pattern repeat once and then knit another 16 sts from the right end of the pattern. Knit rows 27-33.

    Work in stockinette stitch using the off-white yarn until the leg measures 48 cm in total.

    Change the off-white Nordic Wool to the Nalle yarn (all the off-white parts will be knitted with this yarn for the rest of the knit). Begin the heel flap by knitting the sts from needle I onto needle IV = 28 sts. Leave the sts on the other needles on hold. Turn work and begin the reinforced stitch pattern: 1st row: slip 1, purl to the end of row. Turn work. 2nd row: *slip 1, k1*, repeat from * to * for 13 more times. Repeat rows 1-2 for a total of 14 times = 28 rows.

    Work row 1 once more and then turn the heel: continue working in the same reinforced stitch pattern. Knit through the right side row until 10 sts remain. Skp (= slip 1, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over) and turn work. Slip 1, p8, p2tog, turn work. Slip 1, knit until 9 sts remain, skp. Continue decreasing the stitches on the sides of the heel flap while the number of center sts remains the same (10 sts). When only these 10 sts remain, divide the sts evenly onto two needles (5 sts, 5 sts).

    Using a free needle, pick up 14 sts from the left edge of the heel flap and 1 st from between the needles. Knit the picked-up sts through the back loop onto needle I. Knit through needles II and III. Pick up 14 sts from the right edge of the heel flap and 1 st from between the needles. Knit the sts through the back loop onto needle IV.

    Continue working in stockinette st with these 68 sts and begin the gusset decreases: On needle I, knit until 2 sts remain, k2tog. On needle IV skp, knit to the end of needle. Knit 1 round without decreases, knit the decrease round as before, knit 2 rounds without decreases, knit the decrease round, work 3 rounds without decreases, decrease round. 60 sts on the needles. Distribute the sts evenly onto the needles, 15 sts on each.

    Continue the colourwork from row 21 of the chart: knit the 40 st pattern repeat once and then knit another 20 sts from the right end of the pattern. Knit row 22-33. Knit 4 rounds in stockinette stitch using the off-white yarn and then knit rows 34-43. The rest of the sock will be worked in stockinette stitch using the off-white yarn.

    When the sole measures approx. 18 cm or when the sock reaches the tip of your smallest toe, begin the toe decreases: Needles I and III: knit until 3 sts remain, k2tog, k1. Needles II and IV: k1, skp, knit to end of needle. Repeat the decreases in this manner every 2nd round until 8 sts remain on each needle. Then switch to working the decreases on each round.

    When 8 sts remain in total, break the yarn, pull through the sts and securely weave in the yarn end. Knit the other sock to match.

    Finishing

    Steam the finished socks lightly.

    Use the black and white yarns (2 strands of black + 2 strands of black + 2 strands of white) to make decorative braids approx. 80 cm in length. Pass the braids through the fabric where the ribbing and the stockinette stitch meet. Using the off-white yarn, make tassels approx. 9 cm in length for the braids (see illustration).

    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.
