    Details

    Back

    Using the Stone yarn and the smaller needles cast on 94(98)110(114)122 sts and work ribbing for 6 cm. Switch to the larger needles and work stockinette st. Work 2 rows with Stone, increasing 1(3)1(3)3 sts on the first row = 95(101)111(117)125 sts. Work 2 rows using Graphite and 2 rows using Stone.

    Begin the colourwork pattern following the chart: work 3(1)6(4)3 sts using Stone, repeat the 10 st pattern 9(10)10(11)12 times, work remaining 2(0)5(3)2 sts using Stone. Work rows 1–15 of the chart. Work 2 rows Stone, 2 rows Graphite and 2 rows Stone, then use Graphite for the rest of the piece.

    When the piece measures 45(46)47(48)49 cm, on every other row bind off 1x4(4)4(5)5 sts, 0(1)1(1)1x3 sts, 1(1)1(1)2x2 sts and 2(1)2(3)3x1 st at both ends for the armholes = 79(81)89(91)95 sts. When the armhole measures 19(20)21(22)23 cm, on a RS row bind off the middle 23(23)23(25)25 sts, then work to end. Leave the right-hand sts on hold and knit the left shoulder. On every other row bind off 1x8(9)9(9)11 sts and 2x8(8)10(10)10 sts at the shoulder and 2x2 sts at the neckline edge. Knit the other side in the same manner.

    Front

    Work like back until the armhole measures 5 cm. Bind off the middle 15(15)15(17)17 sts for the neckline. Work one side at a time. On every 4th row decrease 8x1 st two sts from the neckline edge (= k2tog). When the armhole measures 19(20)21(22)23(24) cm, begin shaping the shoulder as established. Work the other side in the same manner, decreasing by skp (= slip 1, k1, pass slipped st over).

    Sleeves

    Using the Stone yarn and the smaller needles cast on 44(46)48(48)52 sts and work ribbing for 6 cm. Switch to the larger needles and work 2 rows of stockinette st using Stone. On the first row increase 2 sts = 46(48)50(50)54 sts. Switch to Graphite and work stockinette st. At both ends increase 2(13)11(7)11x1 st on every 10(8)8(8)8th row and 11(1)4(10)5x1 st on every 8(6)6(6)6th row = 72(76)80(84)86 sts. Increases: knit the strand of yarn 2 sts from the edge through the back loop. Work the increased sts in stockinette st. When the piece measures 50(51)52(53)54 cm, on every other row bind off 1x5(5)5(6)6 sts, 2(2)2(2)3x2 sts, 15(17)18(19)20x1 st, 1x2 sts and 1x3 sts at both ends. Bind off remaining sts. Knit the other sleeve in the same manner.

    Finishing

    Pin to measurements wrong side up, mist and allow to dry. Sew the shoulder seams and side seams. Sew the sleeve seams and attach the sleeves.

    Collar: Using Stone and the circular needle pick up and knit 22 sts from the back neckline. Work 1 row in ribbing. Keep working in ribbing, picking up 4 sts from the edge of the work at the end of each row. At the back neckline pick up the 4 sts twice to prevent holes at the neckline. At the front neckline pick up 1 st per row. Keep working as established until you reach the bottom edge of the collar and there are approx. 122(126)130(138)142 sts on the needles. Continue with all sts until the collar measures 8(8)8(9)9 cm at the front. Loosely bind off in pattern. Sew the ends of the collar. Sew or crochet a button loop approx. 4 cm from the bottom edge of the collar. Sew on the button.

    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.
