Knitting Gauge: 8 sts x 12 rows on needles size 12mm in moss stitch = 10 x 10 cm.

Moss stitch: 1st row: * K1, P1* repeat from *-*. 2nd Row: Knit P over K and K over P. repeat these 2 rows.

Note for increasing: Knit all the increased sts tight to make the outer edge even.

All parts are knitted back and front on circular needles (As you would do on pointed needles)

Back: Cast on 46-50-52-56-60 sts (inclusive of 1 seam sts each side) on needles size 12 mm in Eskimo. Knit moss stitch – see explanation above. Remember to check the knitting gauge. When piece measures 5-6-5-6-7 cm bind off as follows: 1 st each side every 4.5-4.5-5-5-6.5 cm a total of 5-5-5-5-4 times = 36-40-42-46-52 sts. When piece measures 33-34-35-36-37 cm bind off for armhole 4-5-6-7-10 sts each side = 28-30-30-32-32 sts. When piece measures 52-54-56-58-60 cm bind off each
side 7-8-8-9-9 sts for the shoulder, put the remaining 14 sts on a thread.

Left front: Cast on 27-29-30-32-34 sts (inclusive of 1 seam st at the side and 2 edge sts mid front) on needles size 12 mm in Eskimo. Knit in moss stitch – except for the 2 edge sts mid front, they are knitted in garter sts on all rows until increasing starts mid front (approx. when the piece measures 33-34-35-36-37 cm). Afterwards, knit all sts in moss stitch. At the same time when piece measures 5-6-5-6-7 cm bind off at the side, as described for the back piece = 22-24-25-27-30 sts. When piece measures 33-34-35-36-37 cm bind off for armhole at the side, as described for the back piece = 19-19-19-20-20 sts. At the same time when piece measures 33-34-35-36-37 cm increase 1 st mid front every 3.5-3.5-4-4-4.5 cm –see note for increasing: 6 times = 24-25-25-26-26 sts. When piece measures 52-54-56-58-60 cm bind off 7-8-8-9-9 sts at the shoulder side, the remaining 17 sts are left on a thread.

Right front: Knit as left front but reversed.

Assembly: Sew shoulder seams on each side in the outermost sts.

Sleeve: Pick up sts along the side of the armhole and note that the sleeve is knitted from top to bottom.
Pick up 30-32-34-35-37 sts on needle size 12 mm in Eskimo - see fig. 1(please note - do not pick up sts on the 4-5-6-7-10 sts which were bind off for the armhole on the front and back pieces).
Knit in moss stitch. When sleeve measures 3-4-5-6-8 cm insert a marking thread either side (this marks where the sleeve needs to be sewed together to the front and back piece) - from now on all measures are from this point. When piece measures 2 cm bind off 1 st each side every 5-3.5-3.5-3-2.5 cm, a total of 5-6-6-6-7 times = 20-20-22-23-23 sts. When the piece measures 54-53-52-51-50 cm bind off loosely.

More assembly:
Collar: Pick up all the collar sts left on the threads = 48 sts. Knit in moss stitch and at the same time on row 1, inc. 8 sts evenly spread over the 14 sts from the back piece = 56 sts. When the collar measures 5 cm inc. 1 st. on each side – see note for increasing. Repeat when the collar measures 11 cm = 60 sts. Bind off loosely when the collar measures 12-12-12-13-13 cm. Sew the side seams together in seam sts. Sew the sleeves together in outermost st up to the marking thread, and now sew the sleeve to the front and back piece where you bind off for the armhole. The cardigan can be held together with either a pin, a kilt pin, a brooch or a belt.

At the same time, after 2 rows in M.1 increase for thumb gusset on both sides of the 3rd and 4th st at the beg of the row. Increase on every other row a total of 6 times = 14 sts in the gusset (incorporate the inc. sts in M.1 as you go along). When piece measures 21 cm put these 14 sts on a safety pin. On next row, cast on 2 new sts behind sts on safety pin = 48 sts on needle and continue in pattern M.1 as before. When piece measures 25 cm – make sure it fits with a “window” – knit M.2 over all sts - make sure the pattern starts with P over K and K over P. When piece measures 28cm, bind off in Rib.

Jo, for at de større størrelser har bredere skuldervidde, og når et stykke længere ud over skulderen.

Lærke 23.05.2011 - 11:55:

Jeg forstår ikke, hvorfor ærmet skal være længere jo mindre størrelsen er. Kan I forklare mig det? Venlig hilsen Lærke
