Knitting tension: 9 sts x 12 rows using 10mm needles = 10x10cm
Rib: *knit 1, purl 1*, repeat from *to*
Stocking stitch with bubbles: *knit 5, knit a bubble in next st as follows: knit 1, yarn over needle, knit 1, yarn over needle, knit 1 (5 sts in same st), turn, knit 4 rows stocking st over these 5 sts, pass 2nd st on right needle over 1st st, then 3rd st over 1st st, 4th st over 1st st and 5th st over 1st st = 1 st left*, repeat from *-* until the end of row. Knit 3 rows stocking stitch. Knit the next row from the right side as follows: *knit 2, knit a bubble in next st as explained above, knit 3, repeat from *-*, knit 3.
Repeat these 8 rows until finished measurements, but remember that as decreases are made, there will be fewer sts between bubbles.
Cast on 48 sts using Eskimo and needle 10mm and purl 1 row. Knit 7cm rib (see above), and purl 1 row from the wrong side. Continue in stocking stitch with bubbles (see above). At the same time, when piece measures 12 sm, insert 6 marking threads as follows: *1 st, 1 marking thread, 8 sts, 1 marking thread*, repeat from *to* a total of 5 times. After last marking thread there are 7 sts left. Now decrease on every other row a total of 6 times by knitting together the first 2 sts on left side of each marking thread = 12 sts left on needle – remember there will be fewer sts between each bubble as decreases are made and it’s recommended to leave out some bubbles in order they don’t sit to close at the top.
Cut thread and pull through remaining sts. Join seams at back from the right side by stitching together the outer links of sts.
