Cast on 44-44-48 (52-52-54) sts (incl 1 edge st each side for assembly) on circular needle size 2.5 mm in navy. Knit Rib-1 – with edge st in garter st throughout - for 4-4-5 (5-6-6) cm.

Cast off, the piece measures approx 33-37-40 (45-49-53) cm.

Assembly: Sew the shoulder seams. Gather approx 87-115 sts (divisible by 4 + 7 sts) around the neckline on needle size 2.5 mm in navy and knit Rib-2 with 3 sts garter st on either side mid front - for 5-6-6 (7-7-8) cm. Cast off all sts apart from the 3 garter sts on each side mid front. Now, knit the addition for the zip as follows: continue to knit the 3 garter sts to the same length as zip, cast off. Sew in the zip – for the sizes where this is too long; sew it in from the top and cut it off at the bottom to the right length – sew over the cut of the zip so it doesn’t fray. Double over the addition towards WS, over the zip and sew in. Sew the sleeve seams; sew the sleeves onto the jersey.

Bonjour, J'aimerais avoir plus de détails pour l'installation de la fermeture éclair pour grandeur 3 ans. Je ne comprends pas trèe bien la façon de faire. Merci et bonne journée !

Bonjour Madame Rousse, quand vous avez tricoté le col, vous conservez les 3 m de chaque côté et rabattez les autres mailles du col. Vous tricotez ensuite une bordure point mousse sur ces 3 m de chaque côté pour coudre sur l'envers et former une "housse" pour cacher les côtés du zip. Bon tricot !

Het afkanten voor de hals geldt voor alle maten, daarom staat het vermeld als volgt: Kant daarbij af aan de halszijde in elke 2e nld: 3 x 2 st en 1 x 1 st. Succes.

Hallo, bij de beschrijving v.h.rechtervoorpand staat niet voor de grotere maten beschreven hoe er bij de hals afgekant moet worden. Ik kan wel wat verzinnen, maar ik doe het graag volgens patroon. M.vr.gr. Merian
