Knitting Gauge: 14 sts x 20 rows on needles size 6 mm in lace pattern with Bomull-lin = 10 x 10 cm

Lace pattern: See diagram M1. The diagram is seen from the right side.


Bind off tips (for the neck shape): Bind off inside 1 seam st of stocking sts. All bind off’s are done from the right side. Bind off as follows after 1 seam st: Slip a st as if to knit, K1, psso. Bind off as follows before 1 seam st: K2 tog.

Front piece: Cast on loosely 81-87-93-101-109 sts (inclusive of 1 seam st each side) on needles size 6 mm in Bomull-lin. Knit 2 rows of garter sts, and continue in stocking sts. When the piece measures 5-5-7-9-11 cm knit the next row from the right side as follows: 1 seam st, 3-0-3-1-5 sts of stocking sts, M.1A (=6 sts), M.1B on the following 60-72-72-84-84 sts, M.1C (= 7sts), 3-0-3-1-5 sts of stocking sts and 1 seam st. Continue this pattern. At the same time when the piece measures 6-6-8-10-12 cm bind off 1 st each side on every 5th row a total of 15 times = 51-57-63-71-79 sts – knit sts not fitting into pattern in stocking sts. Make sure the number of sts remain constant, i.e. make as many yo's as you do sts knitted together. When the piece measures 52-53-55-57-60 inc. 1 st each side on every 3 -3.5-3.5-4-4 cm a total of 4-4-4-3-3 times = 59-65-71-77-85 sts – knit the new sts in stocking sts. When the piece measures 67-69-71-73-75 cm bind off for armhole on every other row as follows: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 0-1-2-3-4 times and 1 st 2-2-2-2-4 times- remember to knit sts not fitting into pattern in stocking st and to keep the number of sts in pattern constant, i.e. make as many yo's as you do sts knitted together. NB: At the same time when binding off for armhole finish 1 repeat in the vertical length of the lace pattern and continue in stocking sts until finished measurements (this means the repeat should be finished at least 1 cm before starting the neck shaping). At the same time when the piece measures 73-76-78-80-82 cm bind off the centre 3 sts for the neck. Continue to bind off 1 st on neckline on every other row – see bind off tips: a total of 8-9-9-10-10 times = 15-15-16-16-16 sts left for shoulder. Bind off remaining sts when the piece measures 85-88-91-94-97 cm.

Back piece: Cast on and knit as front piece and continue until the piece measures 82-85-88-91-94 cm (remember to finish pattern after a full repeat and continue in stocking sts as for the front). Bind off the centre 17-19-19-21-21 sts for neck. Bind off 1 st on next row on neckline – see bind off tips = 15-15-16-16-16 sts left on each shoulder. Bind off remaining sts when the piece measures 85-88-91-94-97 cm.

Sleeves: Cast on loosely 43-45-45-48-50 sts (inclusive of 1 seam st each side) on needles size 6 mm with Bomull-Lin. Knit 4 rows of garter sts at the same time dec 4-4-4-5-5 sts evenly distributed on the last row = 39-41-41-43-45 sts. Knit next row from the right side as follows: 1 seam st, 0-1-1-2-3 sts of stocking sts, M.1A (=6 sts), M.1B over the next 24 sts, M.1C (= 7 sts), 0-1-1-2-3 sts of stocking st and 1 seam st. Continue this pattern. At the same time when piece measures 7 cm inc. 1 st each side on every 11-8-4.5-3.5-3 cm a total of 3-4-6-7-8 times = 45-49-53-57-61 sts – knit the new sts in stocking sts. When 10 cm left until finished measurements discontinue the pattern after a full repeat and finish the sleeve in stocking sts. At the same time when the piece measures 33-33-31-31-31 cm bind off for sleeve cap on every other row as follows: 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 1-2-2-2-3 times and 1 sts 3-3-3-4-4 times. Continue to bind off 2 sts each side until the piece measures 40-41-41-41-42 cm. Then bind off 3 sts each side 1 time and bind off remaining sts when the piece measures 41-42-42-42-43 cm.

Assembly: Sew the shoulder seams. Sew in the sleeves. Sew the side and the sleeve seam inside the seam st.

Crochet edge: At last crochet an edge around the neck, around the bottom of the sleeves and along the bottom edge of the tunic. Crochet on hook size 4 with cotton viscose as follows: 1 dc in the 1st st, *7 ch, skip 2 sts, 1 dc in the next st*, repeat from *-* and finish with 7 ch and 1 sl st in the 1st dc from beginning of round. NB: The edge should be nice and even and not wavy.

Necklace:
Length: Necklace approx 170 cm
Materials: Cotton Viscose. 50 g colour no 17, off white.

Drops crochet hook size 4.

Chain: Crochet ch’s on hook size 4 with 1 thread of Cotton Viscose until the chain measures 182 cm, cut and fasten the thread. Knot the chain tog to a loop, leaving approx 6-8 cm each end.
Now crochet 11 bubbles as follows: Crochet on hook size 4 with 2 threads of Cotton Viscose. Crochet 4 ch (= 1 ch + 1 tr), continue to crochet 8 tr into the 1st crochet ch (= 9 tr), turn the piece. Crochet 3 ch (= 1 tr), continue as follows: 1 tr into each of the next 8 tr from previous row, but crochet these tr’s tog. - this means crochet 1 tr into the 1st tr but wait with the last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), crochet 1 tr into the next tr, but again wait with the last pull through (= 3 sts on hook). Continue like this until all 9 tr (including the tr made out of 3 ch) are crochet = 9 st on hook., now pull the last yrh from the last tr through all sts on hook.
Cut the thread and sew the bubbles evenly distributed along the chain. (Each bubble has an opening at one side, sew this side to the chain inside, in addition sew a few extra sts into the chain to keep the bubble in place).
