Knitting tension: 12 sts x 15 rows on needle size 9mm in stocking sts = 10 x 10 cm.

Crochet tension: width of 12 dc/tr x 4 rows (i.e. 1 row dc + 1 row tr x 4) = 10 x 10 cm.

Crochet info: Replace first dc on each round of dc with 1 ch and replace first tr on each round of tr with 3 ch. Finish each round of dc with 1 sl st in ch from beginning of round and finish each round of tr with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beginning of round.

Pattern: *1 row of tr, 1 row of dc*, repeat from *-* until finished measurements. NB! Crochet in each dc/tr from previous row and not in between.

Decreasing of crochet sts: Dec 1 dc/tr by crocheting 2 dc/tr together as follows: crochet 1 dc/tr but wait with last yo and pull-trough (= 2 sts on hook), crochet next dc/tr and pull last yo through all 3 sts on hook.

Measuring tips: because of the weight of the yarn, all measurements should be made while the garment is hanging.

Front piece: Cast on 40-46-52-57-64 sts (inclusive of 1 edge st each side) on needle size 9 with Salsa. Knit 2 rows garter sts and continue in stocking sts. When piece measures 9 cm inc 1 st each side on every 9 cm a total of 3 times = 46-52-58-63-70 sts. When piece measures 32-33-34-35-37 cm, adjust so that next row is from wrong side, knit 3 rows garter sts. Now knit 2 rows whilst casting off 4 sts at the beginning of these 2 rows for armhole = 38-44-50-55-62 sts. Cast off remaining sts from the right side when piece measures approx 35-36-37-38-40 cm.

Back piece: Cast on and knit as front piece.

Yoke: Crochet together front and back piece as follows: crochet 1 dc in first st on left side of front, crochet 22-24-26-26-28 ch loosely and attach with 1 dc in first st on right side of back piece. Repeat the other side = new sts over armholes. There are now 120-136-152-162-180 sts on round. Read Crochet info! Now crochet and dec as per Diagram 1 – read Decreasing tips. After Diagram 1 there are 60-68-76-72-80 dc on round. Now crochet 1 round of dc, at the same time dec evenly to 52-56-60-62-64 dc. Cut the thread.

Assembly: Sew side seams up to where cast off for armholes started.


= 1 dc
= 1 tr
= 2 tr tog
= 2 dc tog
