    Details
    Using Gooseberry and the smaller needles cast on 94(94)96 sts, place marker for beginning of round and work stockinette st in the round for 3 cm.
    Work stockinette st flat and begin short rows in the back:
    Row 1: k32, turn work, yarn over.
    Row 2: (WS) slip 1 and tighten the yarn so that the loops of the slipped st and yo come over the needle (= double stitch), purl to marker, p32. Turn work, yarn over.
    Row 3: (RS) double stitch, knit to last 5 sts before next double st. Turn work, yarn over.
    Row 4: (WS) double stitch, purl to last 5 sts before next double st. Turn work, yarn over.
    Repeat rows 3–4 2 more times. On the next row *work stockinette st to double stitch, knit the legs of the double st together*, repeat *–* to end.
    Work stockinette st in the round for 1(1)2 round(s). On the first round evenly increase 18(18)24 sts = 112(112)120 sts.
    Switch to the larger needles and begin the colourwork pattern on row 1 of the chart. Work the 8 st pattern repeat 14(14)15 times. Work rows 2–43 of the chart. 2 sts increased in each pattern repeat on rows 3, 5, 7, 11, 16 and 25 = 280(280)300 sts.
    Work stockinette st using Gooseberry until the front yoke measures approx. 15(16)17 cm from the bottom edge of the neck ribbing.
    Next round: knit 41(42)45 back sts, place next 58(57)60 sleeve sts on hold, cast on 1(3)4 st(s) for armhole, place side marker, cast on 1(4)4 st(s). Knit 82(83)90 front sts, place next 58(57)60 sleeve sts on hold, cast on 1(3)4 st(s) for armhole, place side marker, cast on 1(4)4 st(s). Knit 41(41)45 back sts, remove marker and knit to next marker. The beginning of round is now here (right side of the piece). 168(180)196 sts now on the needles, 84(90)98 sts each in the front and back.
     
    Body
    Work stockinette st in the round until the body measures 24(26)28 cm from the armhole.
    Switch to the smaller needles and work ribbing in the round for 4 cm. Loosely bind off in pattern.
     
    Sleeves
    Use either the Magic Loop technique or double-pointed needles.
    Starting at the midpoint of the armhole cast-on pick up and knit 1(3)4 st(s) from the cast-on edge and 1 st from between the sleeve sts and the cast-on. Work the 58(57)60 sleeve sts, pick up 1 st from between the sleeve and cast-on edge and 1(4)4 st(s) from the other end of the cast-on. 62(66)70 sts on the needles. The beginning of round is on the underside of the sleeve.
    Work stockinette st in the round.
    When the sleeve measures 2(3)3 cm from the armhole, decrease 1 st on both sides of the beginning of round: k1, k2tog, work stockinette st to last 3 sts, skp (slip 1 knitwise, k1, pass the slipped st over), k1. Repeat the decreases every 2,5 cm 9(10)11 more times = 42(44)46 sts.
    When the sleeve measures 29(32)35 cm from the armhole, switch to the smaller needles and work ribbing in the round for 4 cm. Loosely bind off in pattern.
     
    Finishing
    Pin to measurements wrong side up, mist and allow to dry.

    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.
