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):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

GARTER ST (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. * K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*.

SHORT ROWS IN GARTER ST - WITH YOS:
When turning and making a YO avoid holes in piece.
Short rows in garter st: Work no of sts described in pattern, slip 1 st as if to P, place strand on the front of piece, move the slipped st back on left needle. Turn piece. On next row when getting to the slipped st, work st and strand around it (YO) tog as one st and work the rest of row.

INCREASE TIP:
When picking up more sts than there are ridges (e.g. when picking up 140 sts evenly over the next 132 ridges), pick up 1 st in every ridge and make the remaining sts with 1 YO distributed evenly between sts. I.e. in this example pick up 132 sts in the 132 ridges and make YOs 8 times evenly = 140 sts. Work YO twisted on next row.
----------------------------------------------------------

CIRCLE:
Work first the outer circle, then pick up sts on the shortest curve on this and work circles in the middle.

OUTER CIRCLE:
Work piece back and forth in GARTER ST - see explanation above, until finished measurements. Cast on 70-72-74-76-78-80 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Delight.

PART 1:
Work 7-7-7-7-8-8 ridges (= 14-14-14-14-16-16 rows). REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE On next row from RS work short rows as follows:
Row 1 (= RS): K the first 60-66-66-66-66-66 – READ SHORT ROWS IN GARTER ST – WITH YOS, turn piece.
Row 2 (= WS): K all sts, turn piece.
Row 3: K the first 54-60-60-60-60-60, turn.
Row 4: K all sts, turn piece.
Row 5: K the first 48-54-54-54-54-54, turn.
Row 6: Turn and K all sts, turn piece.

Continue to work short rows in garter st like this. I.e. work 6 sts less on every row from RS until 1 ridge has been worked (= 2 rows) over the last 6 sts (= 10-11-11-11-11-11 ridges, 17-18-18-18-19-19 ridges have been worked in total on the widest). Last row is from WS. Then work short rows as follows:
Row 1 (= RS): K the first 8 sts, turn piece.
Row 2 (= WS): K all sts, turn piece.
Row 3: K the first 14 sts, turn piece.
Row 4: K all sts, turn piece.
Row 5: K the first 20 sts, turn piece.
Row 6: Turn and K all sts, turn piece.
Continue to work short rows in garter st like this. I.e. work 6 sts more on every row from RS until 2-4-6-8-10-6 sts remain on row (= 11-11-11-11-11-12 ridges). Last row is from WS. Work 7-7-8-8-8-8 ridges over all sts.

14-14-15-15-16-16 ridges have been worked on the shortest and 35-36-37-37-38-39 ridges have been worked on the widest. Piece measures approx. 7-7-7-7-8-8 cm / 2 3/4"-2 3/4"-2 3/4"-2 3/4"-3"-3" on the shortest and approx. 17-18-18-18-19-19 cm / 6 3/4"-7"-7"-7"-7½"-7½" on the widest.

Work 20-20-20-21-21-21 parts in total. Piece measures approx. 137-137-146-154-164-164 cm / 54"-54"-57½"-60½"-64½"-64½" on the shortest and approx. 341-351-361-379-389-400 cm / 134"-138"-142"-149"-153"-157½" on the widest. Bind off.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew bind-off edge tog with cast-on edge, in outer loop of edge sts.

CIRCLE IN THE MIDDLE:
Work piece in the round on circular needle (switch to double pointed needles when needed) from the shortest side on the outer circle and in towards middle. Pick up from RS on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 as follows: Adjust so that seam is mid back.

Pick up 1 st in each of the first 35-37-40-41-43-45 ridges (i.e. over the next 70-74-80-82-86-90 rows), cast on 36-38-40-42-44-46 sts (for armhole), skip the next 35-37-39-41-43-45 ridges (= 70-74-78-82-86-90 rows in total), pick up 134-140-144-150-154-158 sts evenly over the next 140-132-142-151-164-156 ridges (= 280-264-284-302-328-312 rows in total) – READ INCREASE TIP, cast on 36-38-40-42-44-46 sts (for armhole), skip the next 35-37-39-41-43-45 ridges (= 70-74-78-82-86-90 rows in total), pick up 1 st in each of the first 35-37-40-41-43-45 ridges (i.e. over the next 70-74-80-82-86-90 rows) = 276-290-304-316-328-340 sts.

Now work in the round in GARTER ST - see explanation above, until finished measurements. P 1 round, insert 5 markers and dec evenly as follows: Dec 0-2-4-4-4-4 sts evenly on entire round and work as follows: * P 46-48-50-52-54-56, insert 1 marker *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total, P the last 46-48-50-52-54-56 sts = 276-288-300-312-324-336 sts.

On next round, dec as follows: K 1, K the next 2 tog (= 1 st dec), * work until 3 sts remain before next marker, K 2 tog (= 1 st dec), K 2 (marker is in the middle of these 2 sts), K 2 tog (= 1 st dec) *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total, work until 3 sts remain, K 2 tog (= 1 st dec), K 1 (= 12 sts dec in total).

Dec like this every 4th round until 24 sts remain. Work all sts tog 2 by 2 = 12 sts. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. Circle in the middle measures approx. 42-44-46-48-50-52 cm / 16½''-17¼''-18''-19''-19¾''-20½'' in diameter.

SLEEVE:
Worked in the round from bottom up.
Cast on 46-48-50-52-56-58 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Delight. Work in garter st for 3 cm / 1''. Then work in stockinette st but assemble sleeves with WS outwards. Insert 1 marker at beg of round (= mid under sleeve). When piece measures 6-10-6-10-10-8 cm / 2 1/4"-4"-2 1/4"-4"-4"-3", inc 1 st on each side of marker. Inc like this every 3-2½-2½-2-2-2 cm / 1 1/8"-7/8"-7/8"-3/4"-3/4"-3/4" 16-17-19-20-20-22 times in total = 78-82-88-92-96-102 sts. Bind off when sleeve measures 53 cm / 21'' in total. Make another sleeve the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Turn the sleeves and fasten them with WS outwards.
