Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Pattern: See charts (1 chart = 1 repeat). The pattern is seen from the right side and is knit entirely in stockinette stitch. The Pattern 2 chart has arrows which indicate the starting points for different sizes.


Body: Cast on 243 (259-283) sts (including 1 edge st at each side) on smaller circular needles with black and knit 3 cm stockinette st back and forth on the needles, purl 1 row (for the folding edge - measure the work from here). Change to larger circular needles, inc 3 sts at the center front (these 3 sts + 2 edge sts = 5 sts - these are for the steek and are not knit into the pattern). Join and knit Pattern 1 once, then Pattern 2. Start Pattern 2 at the appropriate arrow on the chart after the 5 steek sts at the center front. After Pattern 2 knit Pattern 3 once, then stockinette st with black to finished dimensions. When the work measures 30 (30-31) cm , bind off the center 38 (40-40) sts + 5 steek sts for the neck. Bind off when the work measures 54 (55-56) cm .

Back: = 117 (125-137) sts. Bind off for armholes as on the front = 111 (115-117) sts. When the work measures 52 (53-54) cm , bind off the center 35 (37-37) sts for the neck. Then bind off 2 sts at each neck edge on the next row. Bind off when the work measures approx. 54 (55-56) cm .

Sleeves: Cast on 56 (56-56) sts on smaller double pointed needles with black; join and place a marker at the join. Knit 3 cm stockinette st, purl 1 row (for the folding edge - measure the work from here). Change to larger circular needles and knit Pattern 1 once, then Pattern 4 once. After Pattern 4, knit stockinette st with black to finished dimensions and inc 1 st each side of marker 27 (30-30) times:
Size S S: every 4th row
Size M: alternately every 3rd and 4th row
Size L: every 3rd row
= 110 (116-116) sts. When the work measures 47 (46-45) cm , bind off 2 sts each side of marker and knit the rest back and forth on the needles. Bind off for sleeve caps on each side every other row: 5 (5-3) sts 7 (8-11) times, bind off.

Assembly: Sew a marker thread down into the center of the steek sts at the center front. Sew two machine seams around the marker threads, first seam = ½ stitch from the thread, 2nd seam = ½ stitch from the first seam. Cut up for armholes. Sew shoulder seams.
Pick up approx. 108-116 sts along the left front on smaller circular needles with black and knit 3 cm stockinette st, purl 1 row (= folding edge), 3 cm stockinette st, bind off. Repeat along the right front, but after 1 cm make 6 buttonholes evenly distributed on the row (1 buttonhole = bind off 2 sts and increase 2 new sts over the bound-off sts on the next row). Make corresponding buttonholes on the folding edge. Place the uppermost buttonhole 0.5 cm from the upper edge.
Pick up approx. 126-136 sts around the neck and over the buttonbands on smaller double pointed needles with black. Attach a marker in each corner of the neck at the front. Knit Pattern 5, purl 1 row (= folding edge), 8 rows with black and at the same time, dec 1 st each side of each marker every other row. Make decreases as follows: Before the marker: K 2 tog, after the marker: slip 1, K 1, psso. After the folding edge, inc 1 st each side of each marker corresponding to the decreases, bind off. Sew on the sleeves. Fold all edges over against the wrong side and sew. Sew on the buttons.

Bij de mouwen staat dat je na de omslag verder moet gaan met naald 5, dat moet 3,5 zijn

Hello, is the gauge given for the stranded portion or for plain stockinette?

DROPS Design 04.12.2012 kl. 14:59:

Dear Alice, gauge is given for stranded part and should be the same in stocking (= in pattern). Happy knitting !
