See diagrams M.1, M.2 and M.3. Diagrams show pattern from RS. In diagram M.1 and M.2, continue to work the rows marked with an arrow, on the other rows; turn and work back (= short rows).

First work right front piece and inc for sleeve, then work left front piece and sleeve, then slip these tog and work down back piece. Worked back and forth on a circular needle to make room for all the sts.

P 1 row. Work next row as follows: Work in stockinette st until 12 sts remain, 1 st in garter st, diagram M.3 and then diagram M.2 over the outermost 8 sts (no of sts in diagram M.2 will vary between 8 and 10).

Får ikke oppskriften på M2 til å stemme, gjelder kanskje M1 også?

Hej Birgit. Mönstret skulle stemme, men kan du maaske sige hvor det gaar galt for dig?

Karen Walker 19.06.2012 - 22:29:

Drops 137-24. Diagram M.3 does not work for me. Rows 6 and 12 want you to K the first YO and slip the second. However, the YOs are in Rows 3 and 9. Is there an error in the diagram???

DROPS Design 06.12.2012 kl. 14:36:

Dear Mrs Walker, you mean M.1 and M.2 ? row 3 has a yo, but then you work 2 shortened rows on the first 3 sts, so that you will work the yo from 3rd row only on 6th row. (same for row 9 and 12) Happy Knitting !
