Pattern instructions

Knitting Tension: 24 sts x 32 rows with Pelliza on needles size 3 mm in stocking sts = 10 x 10 cm.
Garter sts (back and forth): knit all rows.
Lobster Stitches: Double crochet from left to right from the RS of piece.

Front piece: With Pelliza cast on 54-62-70-80-86 (90-98-104-112) sts (incl 1 edge st each side) on needle size 2.5 mm. Knit 2 rows garter sts, change to needle size 3 mm and continue in stocking sts but garter the edge st. Remember the knitting tension! At the same time, when piece measures 3 cm inc 1 st each side a total of 4 times on every 4-4.5-5-6-6.5 (7-8-8-8.5) cm = 62-70-78-88-94 (98-106-112-120) sts. When piece measures 20-21-24-28-31 (33-37-38-39) cm cast off for armhole each side on every other row: 3 sts 1-1-1-2-2 (2-2-2-2) times, 2 sts 2-3-3-2-2 (2-2-3-4) times, 1 st 3-2-2-3-2 (1-3-3-3) times = 42-48-56-62-70 (76-80-82-84) sts. When piece measures 24-26-29-34-38 (40-45-46-48) cm divide the piece mid front for split. Complete each side separately, garter st the outer st of the split. When piece measures 30-32-36-41-45 (48-53-55-57) cm put the middle 10-12-13-14-17 (18-18-19-19) sts on the front on a thread for neck, and cast off the remaining sts on each shoulder.

Back piece: Cast on and knit as described for front piece, but without dividing the piece for split. When piece measures 30-32-36-41-45 (48-53-55-57) cm cast off all sts, the middle 20-24-26-28-34 (36-36-38-38) sts = neck.

Sleeve: Using Muskat, cast on 34-34-36-40-40 (44-46-46-48) sts (incl 1 edge st each side) on needle size 3 mm. Knit 4 cm in stocking st but garter the edge st (folded towards the WS as edging). Change to Pelliza, at the same time inc 4 sts evenly on the 1st row = 38-38-40-44-44 (48-50-50-52) sts. Continue in stocking sts - at the same time, when piece measures 7 cm inc 1 st each side: 4-6-7-8-10 (11-12-14-16) times as follows: Size 3 months: every 9th row. Sizes 6/9 months: every 8th row. Sizes 12/18 months + 2 years + 5/6 years + 9/10 years: alternate between every 7th and 8th rows. Sizes 3/4 years + 11/12 years: every 7th row. Sizes 7/8 years: every 8th row. = 46-50-54-60-64 (70-74-78-84) sts. When piece measures 19-22-24-26-30 (34-37-40-43) cm cast off for sleeve cap each side on every other row: 3 sts 0-0-1-0-0 (2-1-1-1) times, 2 sts 9-9-7-11-11 (5-9-11-12) times, 3 sts 0-0-1-0-0 (2-1-1-1) times. Cast off the remaining sts, the piece now measures approx 25-28-30-31-37 (40-44-48-52) cm.

Assembly: Sew the shoulder seams. With Pellizza, on double pointed needles size 3 mm pick up approx 40-80 sts round the neck (incl sts from the thread mid front). Insert a marking thread in the middle on top of each shoulder. Knit stocking sts, however, garter the outer most st towards the middle. At the same time inc 1 st on either side of the marker every 2nd cm until finished measurements (= 4 new sts per increase). When neck measures 5-5-7-7-7 (8-8-8-8) cm garter 2 rows over all sts, and cast off. Fold the Muskat edges double at the bottom of the sleeves towards the WS and sew. Sew on sleeves. Sew the sleeve and side seams within one edge st. Crochet Lobster sts – see explanation above – with Muskat and crochet hook size 3 mm around the bottom edge of the jersey and around the neck + the neck split. Crochet 2 ties approx 30-35 cm long in chain sts using Muskat and attach to either side where the neck edge starts.
