When piece measures 32-32-33-34-35 cm knit next row as follows: 1 garter st, rib over the next 30-36-39-39-45 sts, 1 garter st, cast off the next 13-13-13-19-19 sts loosely in rib (= armhole), 1 garter st, rib over the next 57-63-69-75-81 sts, 1 garter st, cast off the next 13-13-13-19-19 sts loosely in rib (= armhole), 1 garter st, rib over the next 30-36-39-39-45 sts and finish with 1 garter st. Knit 3 rows rib over each front piece + back piece separately with 1 garter st each side.

Measure piece from here from now on! Continue in rib as before with 1 garter st and K3 each side towards mid front. When piece measures 4 cm dec. all P3 to P2 (seen from the right side) = 175-200-210-225-250 sts. When piece measures 8-9-9-10-10 cm, dec. all K3 to K2 = 140-160-168-180-200 sts. When piece measures 14-15-15-16-16 cm inc. all K2 to K3 = 175-200-210-225-250 sts. When piece measures 22-24-24-26-26 cm, cast off loosely in rib – the shoulder piece measures 11-12-12-13-13 cm.

Crochet border: Crochet a row of ch-loops along the edge of both front pieces on hook size 3.5 with Vivaldi as follows: 1 dc in first st, *5 ch, skip 2 rows/sts, 1 dc in next row/st*, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in last st.

Sew 4 buttons evenly on left front piece (the ch-loops are used as button holes), the top button is places about 16-17-17-18-18 cm from where the shoulder piece is folded and the bottom button about 22-24 cm from the bottom edge of the sweater.


Neck piece:
Measurements approx 15 x 38 cm + ribbon
Materials: Vivaldi
A remnant (approx 5 g) colour no 09, light blue

DROPS needles size 20mm
Accessory: approx 38 cm lace (width 40mm) + 90 cm silk-ribbon (width 10mm)

Knitting Gauge: 4 sts x 8 rows on needles size 20mm with Vivaldi in garter sts = 10 x 10 cm.
Garter stitch: (front and back on needle) 1st row: K, 2nd row: K

Neckpiece: Cast on 40 sts using 2 needles size 20mm (do this to ensure the edge doesn’t become too tight). Remove 1 needle and knit garter st until piece measures approx 15 cm (= approx 12 rows). Cast off. NB! To ensure the edge doesn’t become too tight, make a yo after every other st whilst casting off (cast off yo as well)

Assembly: Insert a drawing thread horizontally in the middle of the piece and pull until the piece is the length of the lace. Sew on lace (use a sewing machine). Now sew on the silk-ribbon on top of the lace (through both layers) – adjust so that the middle of the silk-ribbon is covering the knitted piece and use the remaining ribbon at each end to tie the piece.
