Pattern instructions

Knitting Tension: 11 sts x 17 rounds on needles size 7 mm in Highlander and stocking sts = 10x10 cm.
Increasing tips: Inc. 1 st at the right side of the marking threads on every other round until finished. Inc. 1 st as follows: make a yo, on the following round twist and K the yo.

Back and front piece: The cardigan is knitted in a circle from the centre of the back piece.
Cast on 7 sts on double pointed needles size 7 mm in Highlander. K 1 round. Then K 1 round and at the same time inc 1 st in every st = 14 sts. Insert 7 marking threads in the piece with 2 sts in between. Continue in stocking sts at the same time inc on every other round – read increasing tips – change to longer circular needle as the work proceeds.
When the piece measures 25-27-30-33 cm from the centre (42-46-50-56 rounds and 154-168-182-203 sts), mark the armholes as follows: Knit the first 20-22-24-26 sts on round with another colour (this colour is removed later and the sleeve is knitted from here and downwards). Knit another 44-48-52-56 sts and then knit the following 20-22-24-26 sts in another colour (= the other armhole). Continue in Highlander and stocking sts over all sts and inc as before. When the piece measures approx. 49-55-60-65 cm from the centre and outwards (= 98-110-120-130 cm in diameter) and approx 301-336-364-392 sts on round cast off loosely – NB: To make sure the casting off edge doesn’t become too tight make a yo approx. after every 8th st whilst casting off (cast off the yo’s as sts).

Sleeve: The sleeves are picked up on each side of the thread which was knitted in another colour and they are knitted downwards. Use 2 needles, pull the thread out as the work proceeds and put the sts from each side of the thread on separate needles = 20-22-24-26 sts each side. Put all sts on to a short circular needle = 40-44-48-52 sts. Pick up 3 extra sts at the top of the sleeve – the top is where the sleeves are closest to each other- and 1 extra st at the bottom (mid under arm) of the sleeve = 44-48-52-56 sts. Begin to knit the sleeve from mid under arm – insert a marking thread. Knit in stocking sts. When the sleeve measures 2-2-2-3 cm dec 1 st each side of the marking thread, repeat the decreases for every 5-4.5-4-3.5 cm 8-9-10-11 times = 26-28-30-32 sts left. When the sleeve measures 51 cm P 1 row from the WS and cast off loosely, the sleeve measures approx. 52 cm- NB: Try the cardigan on before casting off to make sure the length fits.

Crochet edge: Crochet an edge around the whole cardigan and at the bottom of the sleeves on hook size 7 in Eskimo as follows: 1 dc in the first st, *4 ch, 1 tr in the first of the 4 ch, skip approx 4 cm 1 dc in the following st*, repeat from *-* and finish with a sl st in the 1st dc from beginning of round – NB: Make sure the crochet edge becomes even and neat, and not “wavy”.
