GARTER ST (in the round): K 1 round, P 1 round.

Inc by making 1 YO. On next round work YO into back of loop to avoid a hole. Incorporate inc sts in garter st as you go along.


Worked in the round on double pointed needles and circular needle.
When casting on leave approx 30 cm / 11 3/4'' thread to be used for assembly.
Cast on 56 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2½ with Fabel.
Distribute sts on 4 double pointed needles with 14 sts on each. K 1 round. Insert 4 markers in piece, 1 in first st, 1 in 3rd st, 1 in 29th st and 1 in 31st st. K st with marker on every round and work remaining sts in GARTER ST - see above! Continue in the round, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st each side of each st with marker (= 8 inc per round) on every other round – see INCREASING TIP (round beg with K1 (= st with marker) and finishes with 1 YO before K1). REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Change to circular needle when there are enough sts. Continue like this until there is a total of 336 sts on round = 35 rounds with inc. Piece now measures approx 30 x 40 cm / 11 3/4" x 15 3/4''. Bind off LOOSELY.

Use thread from casting on to sew the hole in the middle with casting on row edge to edge.


Worked back and forth on needle.
Cast on
24 sts on needle size 3 mm / US 2½ with 1 thread Fabel. K 1 row, AT THE SAME TIME work the last 2 sts on needle in 2 strands (= the 2 sts towards bottom edge, work with 2 strands throughput).
Continue with shortened rows as follows: * K 21 sts, turn, K all sts on return row.
K 17 sts, turn, K all sts on return row.
K 14 sts, turn, K all sts on return row.
K all 24 sts, turn and K all sts on return row. *.
Repeat from *-*. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Bind off when bottom edge measures 15 cm / 6''.

Sew sides tog, garter st towards garter st. Tighten the top and fasten thread.

Salve, c'è un modo per non far vedere la "giuntura" che si viene a creare tra il punto in cui finisce un ferro e inizia quello successivo?a fine lavoro è visibile una riga trasversale che attraversa il lavoro a partire da quel punto.In un video fate passare la I maglia, accavallate l'ultima del ferro precedente e poi riportate la maglia sul ferro di sinistra per lavorarla.E' questo il metodo per rendere invisibile il passaggio tra una riga e l'altra?

Buonasera Caterina. Seguendo le indicazioni di questo video dovrebbe riuscire ad ottenere un passaggio corretto tra una riga e l'altra. Buon lavoro!

Hvis man strikker 24 masker tilbage på den sidste pind i mønsteret til æggevarmere, ender man jo i den forkerte ende!

Nej, det skulle man ikke da man efter hver hver forkortede pind vender og strikker tilbage.
