Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

KNITTING TIP 1:
If you cast on new sts on 3rd row in pattern on right front piece, cast on new sts on 4th row in pattern on left front piece. If you cast on new sts on 7th row in pattern on right front piece, cast on new sts on 8th row in pattern on left front piece.

KNITTING TIP 2:
If you finish on 3rd row in pattern on right front piece, last row on left front piece must also be 3rd row in pattern.
If you finish on 7th row in pattern on right front piece, last row on left front piece must also be 7th row in pattern.

TIP:
Bomull-Lin will be more even and look better after it has been washed. When the garment is finished, soak it, stretch it to correct measurements - see chart, and leave it to dry flat. The garment will stretch approx. 6-7 cm / 2½"-2 3/4" in length after wash.

Läcker! Kul att slippa sy axel- och ärmsömmar. Sömmarna kan virkas med baklänges fasta maskor (löst här eftersom arbetet töjer sig) som ser ut som en snodd. Har inte stickat plagget, så jag vet inte hur det skulle se ut … Det brukar bli fint också längs kanter.

Ang. jakken: Love at first sight. Lurer på hva tegnet med en firkant inni enn firkant betyr? står ikke i tegnforklaringen.

Hei Elisabeth. Jo, det er tegn nummer 4: 3 kast om p, 1 rett. God fornöjelse.

Bellissimo capo, estremamente versatile, adatto per tutte le occasioni! Magnifico sia con un jeans che con un elegante tubino nero.
