Using the smaller needles cast on 114(122)130(138)146 sts and work ribbing for 6 cm.

Switch to the larger needles and begin the cable pattern on row 1 of the chart: work 14(17)20(23)26 sts in double seed st, work section A-B (= 33 sts), 20(22)24(26)28 sts in double seed st, A-B again (= 33 sts), 14(17)20(23)26 sts in double seed st. Continue as established. Work rows 2-34 of the chart, then keep repeating rows 3-34.

When the piece measures 44(45)46(47)48 cm, on every other row bind off 5(6)6(7)7x2 sts at both ends for the armholes = 94(98)106(110)118 sts.

When the armhole measures 22(23)24(25)26 cm, bind off the middle 24(26)26(28)28 sts for the neckline. Work one side at a time. On every other row decrease 1x3 sts and 1x2 sts at the neckline edge.

When the armhole measures 24(25)26(27)28 cm, bind off the 30(31)35(36)40 shoulder sts.

Knit the other side in the same manner.

Left front

Using the smaller needles cast on 65(69)73(77)81 sts and begin ribbing on the WS with p1. Work in ribbing, slipping the first st of each row at the front edge.

After 2 cm make the first buttonhole: on a RS row, work until 7 sts remain at the front edge (= left end), work 2 sts together, yarn over, work to end.

When the ribbing measures 6 cm, leave 12 sts at the front edge on hold for the border.

Switch to the larger needles and begin the cable pattern on row 1 of the chart: work 14(17)20(23)26 sts in double seed st, work section A-B (= 33 sts), 6(7)8(9)10 sts in double seed st, increase 1 st at the front edge for seaming = 54(58)62(66)70 sts. Work rows 2-34 of the chart, then keep repeating rows 3-34.

When the piece measures 44(45)46(47)48 cm, on every other row bind off 5(6)6(7)7x2 sts at the right end for the armhole = 44(46)50(52)56 sts.

When the armhole measures 15(16)17(18)19 cm, on every other row bind off 1x5(6)6(6)6 sts, 2x2 sts and 5(5)5(6)6x1 st at the left end for the neckline.

When the armhole measures 24(25)26(27)28 cm, bind off the 30(31)35(36)40 shoulder sts.

Sleeves

Using the smaller needles cast on 59(59)61(63)65 sts and work ribbing for 6 cm.

Switch to the larger needles and begin the cable pattern on row 1 of the chart: work 13(13)14(15)16 sts in double seed st, work section A-B (= 33 sts) and 13(13)14(15)16 sts in double seed st. Work rows 2-34 of the chart, then keep repeating rows 3-34.

At the same time increase at both ends 19(17)16(16)15x1 st on every 6th row and then 0(4)6(7)9x1 st on every 4th row = 97(101)105(109)113 sts. Work the increased sts in double seed st.

When the piece measures 52(53)54(55)56 cm, on every other row bind off 7(8)8(9)9x1 sts at both ends. Then bind off the remaining sts.

Knit the other sleeve in the same manner.

Finishing

Pin to measurements, mist on the wrong side and allow to dry.

Sew the shoulder seams.

Buttonband (right front): Place the 12 sts on hold onto the smaller needles and increase 1 st for seaming at the front edge = 13 sts. Work ribbing until the border reaches the front neckline. Leave the sts on hold on a safety pin. Sew the border to the front edge (the extra st is decreased = 12 sts). Place markers for 7 buttons on the buttonband. The lowest should be 2 cm from the bottom, the topmost one 1,5 cm from the top, and the other 5 in between, evenly spaced.

Buttonhole band (left front): Work in the same manner. Work buttonholes at the spots you marked. Buttonhole: work 6 sts, 2 sts together, yarn over, work remaining 5 sts. Leave the sts on hold and sew the border to the front edge.

Collar: Using the smaller needles pick up the 12 border sts you left on hold + 22(24)24(26)26 sts from front neckline + 33 sts from back neckline + 22(24)24(26)26 sts from front neckline + 12 held sts = 101(105)105(109)109 sts. Work ribbing for approx. 3 cm, then switch to the larger needles and continue. When the collar measures 10 cm, loosely bind off in pattern.

Attach the sleeves. Sew the side seams and sleeve seams.

Sew on the buttons.

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 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.
