    Details

    The yoke

    Using the smaller 40 cm circular needles and the sand-coloured yarn, cast on 84(84)88(94) sts and work ribbing in the round for 2,5 cm.

    Change to the larger circular needles and the multi-coloured yarn. Knit stockinette stitch in the round for 2 rounds, and on the first round evenly increase 28(28)32(26) sts = 112(112)120(120) sts.

    Begin the textured lace pattern in the round from row 1 of chart I and repeat the 8 st pattern repeat for a total of 14(14)15(15) times. Work through rows 2-11 of the chart. On row 11, 2 sts will be added to each pattern repeat = 140(140)150(150) sts in total. Work rows 12–20 of the chart.

    Using the sand-coloured yarn, work 4(4)5(5) rows in stockinette stitch and on the last row increase 10 sts: *k14(14)15(15) sts, make 1 st* (=pick up the strand of yarn between the st you've just knitted and the one you're about to knit and knit it through the back loop), repeat from * to * for 9 more times = 150(150(160)160) sts. Work rows 21-26 of the chart. Sizes L and XL only: on the last round add 1 st = 150(150)161(161) sts.

    Work row 27 of the chart as follows: work the pattern repeat (11 sts + 1 st) for a total of 13(13)14(14) times and work the 7 sts + 1 st on the left edge. 164(164)176(176) sts on the needles. Work rows 28–30 of the chart.

    Using the sand-coloured yarn work 4 rounds in moss stitch and then 3(3)3(4) rounds in stockinette stitch. On the first stockinette round evenly increase 1(12)11(11) sts = 165(176)187(187) sts.

    Knit 1 round in stockinette st and at the same time increase 15(16)17(17) sts: *k11, m1*, repeat from * to * for 14(15)16(16) more times = 180(192)204(204) sts.

    Using the multi-coloured yarn, work 3 rounds in moss st and then 4 rounds in stockinette st. On the 2nd stockinette round increase 15(16)17(17) sts: *k12, m1*, repeat from * to * for 14(15)16(16) more times = 195(208)221(221) sts.

    Using the sand-coloured yarn work 2(2)3(4) rounds in stockinette st and on the 2nd round increase 15(16)17(17) sts: k12, m1, *k13, m1* repeat from * to * for 13(14)15(15) more times and k1 = 210(224)238(238) sts. Work 1 more round in stockinette st and at the same time increase 15(16)17(17) sts: *k14, m1*, repeat from * to * for 14(15)16(16) more times = 225(240)255(255) sts.

    Work 3 rounds in moss st and then 1 round in stockinette st. On the stockinette round, evenly increase 3(4)1(9) sts = 228(244)256(264) sts.

    Divide the work into four sections: first 66(72)78(80) sts from the beginning of round for the back, 48(50)50(52) sts for a sleeve, 66(72)78(80) sts for the front and the remaining 48(50)50(52) sts for the other sleeve.

    The lower part of the yoke on the back

    Work with the 66(72)78(80) sts for the back, leaving the rest of the sts on hold for example on a piece of scrap yarn.

    The back is worked flat. Begin from row 1 of chart II and increase 2 sts on both ends 1(1)1(2)x2 sts and 1x5(5)7(6) sts = 80(86)96(100) sts. When you have finished the increases and worked through the 4th(4th)4th(6th) row of chart II, leave the sts on hold.

    The lower part of the yoke on the front

    Knit as you knitted the lower part of the back.

    The hem

    Now move the sts for both the front and the back on the same needle and keep knitting in the round = 160(172)192(200) sts. Work rows 5(5)5(7)–57 of chart II and then work the rest of the garment in stockinette stitch using the sand-coloured yarn.

    When the hem measures 19(20)20(21) cm, mark 2 sts on both sides with e.g. a different yarn. On the next round, increase 1 st on both sides of the marked sts (=knit the strand of yarn between the sts through the back loop). Work as established for 12 cm, repeat the increases. Then repeat the increases after 9 cm and finally after 5 cm = 176(188)208(216) sts.

    When the hem measures 54,5(56,5)57,5(58,5) cm, work ribbing in the round for 2,5 cm and bind off in pattern.

    The lower part of the yoke on the sleeve and the lower parts of the sleeves

    Move the 48(50)50(52) sleeve sts on hold back on the larger double-pointed needles. The sleeve is worked flat. Begin from row 1 of chart II. At the same time, from the sts increased on the front and back, pick up and knit on both ends of every 2nd row 1(1)1(2)x2 sts and 1x4(4)6(5) sts = 60(62)66(70) sts. Continue working in the round from row 5(5)5(7) of chart II. Mark the beginning of the round e.g. with a different yarn.

    When the inner sleeve measures 2 cm, decrease 1 st on both sides of the beginning of the round. Repeat the decreases every 2,5(3)3(3) cm for 3 more times = 52(54)58(62) sts.

    When the inner sleeve measures 11(12)12(13) cm, change to the smaller double-pointed needles. Using the sand-coloured yarn work 2 cm of ribbing in the round. Bind off in pattern.

    Knit the lower part of the other sleeve to match.

    Finishing

    Lay the garment to measurements, wrong side up. Steam lightly through a wet cloth.

    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.
