    Using the smaller needle cast on 107(115)123(131)139(147) sts and work in ribbing for 7 cm.

    Change to the larger needle, start working in stockinette stitch and decrease 1 st on the 1st row = 106(114)122(130)138(146) sts.

    When the piece measures 29(30)30(31)31(32) cm, decrease 1 st on both ends leaving 1 st untouched on both ends ( = decrease the second to last stitch). Repeat the decreases every 5 cm for 6 more times = 92(100)108(116)124(132) sts.

    When the piece measures 80(81)82(83)83(84) cm, begin shaping the armhole and bind off on both ends of the row on every 2nd row 1x5(5)5(6)6(6) sts and 5(5)5(6)6(6)x1 sts = 72(80)88(92)100(108) sts.

    When the armhole measures 17(18)19(20)20(21) cm, bind off the center 28 sts for the neckline and switch to working each side of the neck separately. Shape the first side by binding off 1x2 sts after knitting 2 rows.

    When the armhole measures 19(20)21(22)22(23) cm, bind off 20(24)28(30)34(38) sts for the shoulder.

    Knit the other side of the neckline to match.

    Left front

    Using the smaller needle cast on 66(70)74(78)82(86) sts. On the WS row start the ribbing and also the cable pattern on the front edge from row 1 of the chart. Reading from left to right, knit 4 sts from the begin of the 1st row, work the cable ( = 18 sts), *p1, k1, repeat from * to end. In the right end work 44(48)52(56)60(64) sts in ribbing, knit through rows 1-3 of the chart on the left end and then keep repeating rows 4-11. On row 3 4 sts will be added to the cable and you will have 70(74)78(82)86(90) sts on the needle.

    Note: When the ribbing measures 7 cm, change to the larger needle and work 44(48)52(56)60(64) sts in stockinette stitch in the right end and at the same time continue to follow the chart for the cable on the front edge ( = the left end).

    When the piece measures 29(30)30(31)31(32) cm, decrease 1 st on the right edge leaving 1 st untouched ( = decrease the second to last stitch). Repeat the decrease every 5 cm 6 more times = 63(67)71(75)79(83) sts.

    When the piece measures 80(81)82(83)83(84) cm, start the decreases for the armholes on the right end and at the same time decrease 1 st on the front edge: bind off 1x5(5)5(6)6(6) sts in the beginning of the row and when you have 28 sts remaining on the needle, knit 2 together, knit to end. Keep making the armhole decrease every 2nd row 5(5)5(6)6(6)x1 st and on the front edge 1 st every 3 cm 6 more times.

    When the armhole measures 19(20)21(22)22(23) cm, bind off 20(24)28(30)34(38) sts for the shoulder. 26 border sts remaining on the needles. Increase 1 st for the seam next to the shoulder and continue working the cable with these 27 sts. Continue in this manner for approx. half the width of the neckline (pulling the border slightly). Leave these border sts on hold for example on a piece of scrap yarn.

    Right front

    Work as left front reversing all the shapings.

    Sleeves

    Using the smaller needle cast on 46(46)50(50)54(54) sts and start both the ribbing and the cable on the WS row. Start the cable in the middle of the piece from row 1 of the cable chart: *k1, p1, repeat from * for 6(6)7(7)8(8) more times, knit the cable from the chart (18sts), *p1, k1, repeat from * to the end of the row.

    Work in ribbing for 14(14)16(16)18(18) sts on both ends, work rows 1-3 of the cable chart and then repeat rows 4-11. On row 3 of the chart you will add 4 sts to the cable and you will have 50(50)54(54)58(58) sts on the needle.

    Note: When the piece measures 6 cm, change to the larger needle, work in stockinette stitch for 14(14)16(16)18(18) sts on both ends and continue working the cable in the middle according to the chart.

    When the piece measures 12(12)13(15)14(9) cm, increase 1 st on both ends. Repeat the increases every 3 cm 9(11)11(13)11(13) more times = 70(74)78(82)82(86) sts.

    When the piece measures 47(48)49(50)50(51) cm, bind off on both ends on every 2nd round 1x5(5)5(6)6(6) sts and 7(7)7(8)8(8)x1 st. Bind off the remaining stitches.

    Knit the other sleeve to match.

    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.
