    Details

    The back

    Cast on 134(146)154(162)174(186) sts and begin the ribbing on the wrong side of the work with a k2. Continue for 6 cm, and on the last WS row, decrease 1 st = 133(145)153(161)173(185) sts.

    Begin the lace pattern from row 1 of chart: work 37(43)47(51)57(63) sts in stockinette st and then work 3 sts from the right end of the chart. Repeat the 12 st pattern repeat 4 times, work 8 sts from the left end of the chart and end by working 37(43)47(51)57(63) sts in stockinette st. Keep repeating rows 1-12 of the chart for the lace.

    When the piece measures 14(14)15(15)16(16) cm, decrease 1 st on both ends: on the RS row, k2, skp, and when 4 sts remain, k2tog, k2. Repeat the decreases as before every 2 cm for 11(11)11(10)10(10) more times = 109(121)129(139)151(163) sts.

    When the piece measures 48(49)50(51)53(54) cm, increase 1 st on both ends for the armhole: on the RS row, k1, make 1 (=pick up the strand of yarn between the sts and knit it through the back loop) and when 1 st remains, m1, k1. Repeat the increases every 2(2)2(2,5)2,5(2,5) cm for 9 more times = 129(141)149(159)171(183) sts.

    When the armhole measures 22(23)24(25)25(26) cm, bind off on both ends on every 2nd row 6x5 sts and 2x6 sts (8x6 sts) 4x6 sts and 4x7 sts (1x8 sts and 7x7 sts) 1x7 sts and 7x8 sts (3x8 sts and 5x9 sts) for the shoulder.

    Note: When the armhole measures 24(25)26(27)27(28) cm, bind off the middle 41 sts for the neckline, working one side of the neckline at a time. After 2 rows, bind off 1x2 sts at the neckline edge.

    Knit the other side of the neckline to match.

    The front

    Cast on 134(146)154(162)174(186) sts and begin the ribbing on the WS with a k2. Continue for 4 cm, and on the last WS row decrease 1 st = 133(145)153(161)173(185) sts.

    Begin the lace pattern from row 1 of chart: work 37(43)47(51)57(63) sts in stockinette st and then work 3 sts from the right end of the chart. Repeat the 12 st pattern repeat 4 times, work 8 sts from the left end of the chart and end by working 37(43)47(51)57(63) sts in stockinette st. Keep repeating rows 1-12 of the chart for the lace.

    When the piece measures 8(8)9(9)10(10) cm, decrease 1 st on both ends: on the RS row, k2, skp, and when 4 sts remain, k2tog, k2. Repeat the decreases as before every 2 cm for 11(11)11(10)10(10) more times = 109(121)129(139)151(163) sts.

    Note: When the piece measures approx. 19(19)20(20)21(21) cm and you have worked the decreases a total of 5 times, mark the places for the pockets: on the RS row, k2(4)4(8)14(20) sts, knit the next 30(34)38(38)38(38) sts with a piece of scrap yarn, move these sts back onto the left-hand needle and knit them using the working yarn. Work the next 59 sts in the lace pattern, knit the following 30(34)38(38)38(38) sts with a piece of scrap yarn, move these sts back onto the left-hand needle and knit them using the working yarn, k2(4)4(8)14(20).

    When the piece measures 42(43)44(45)47(48) cm, increase 1 st on both ends for the armhole: on the RS row, k1, make 1 ((=pick up the strand of yarn between the sts and knit it through the back loop) and when 1 st remains, m1, k1. Repeat the increases every 2(2)2(2,5)2,5(2,5) cm for 9 more times = 129(141)149(159)171(183) sts.

    Note: When the armhole measures 12(13)14(15)15(16) cm, leave the middle 15 sts on hold for the neckline and switch to working one side of the neckline at a time. On the neckline edge, bind off 1x3 sts, 2x2 sts and 8x1 st every 2nd row.

    Bind of the shoulder sts at the same point as you did on the back piece.

    Knit the other side of the neckline to match.

    Finishing

    Lay the pieces to measurements wrong side up, mist with a spray bottle and allow to dry. Sew the shoulder seams.

    The collar: Move the sts on hold at the neckline onto the circular needle and pick up and knit sts from the neckline edge. 148(148)152(152)152(152) sts on the needles. Work ribbing in the round. When the collar measures 10 cm, increase 1 st onto each pair of knitted sts on the next round = 185(185)190(190)190(190) sts. When the collar measures 25 cm, bind off loosely.

    Finishing the armholes: Pick up 22 sts for every 10 cm along the armhole and work ribbing for 3 cm. Bind off in pattern. Knit the other armhole to match.

    Sew the side seams so that a slit remains on the hem (4 cm on the front and 10 cm on the back).

    The pockets: Remove the scrap yarn and place the sts onto two needles. Work in ribbing with the lower sts for 3 cm and bind off in pattern.

    For the pocket, work in stockinette st with the upper sts and increase 1 st on both ends. After 15(15)16(16)17(17) cm, bind off. Sew the pocket onto the wrong side. Sew the ends of the ribbed edge neatly onto the right side of the garment.

    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.
