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.

INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

MEASURING TIP:
Because of the weight of the yarn, take all length measurements when holding the piece up, or the garment will be too long when worn.

DECREASE TIP (for sides):
Decrease inside 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. All decreases are worked from the right side.
Decrease as follows after the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over (= 1 stitch decreased).
Decrease as follows before the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch: Start 2 stitches before the edge stitch and knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased).

INCREASE TIP (for sleeves):
Increase 1 stitch inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next row work the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole (the increased stitches are worked in stockinette stitch).

BUTTONHOLES:
Work buttonholes on right band. 1 BUTTONHOLE = knit together 5th and 6th stitch from the edge (= in the transition between the 5 band stitches in garter stitch and the stockinette stitch section) and make 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn over to leave a hole.
Work buttonholes when the piece measures:
S: 49 and 59 cm
M: 50 and 60 cm
L: 51 and 61 cm
XL: 52 and 62 cm
XXL: 53 and 63 cm
XXXL: 54 and 64 cm

Change back to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Work stockinette stitch with 5 edge stitches in garter stitch in each side. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When the piece measures 25 cm / 9 3/4'' – read MEASURING TIP, cast on 1 stitch at the end of the next 2 rows (the split ends here) = 112-118-126-134-142-152 stitches. Continue working stockinette stitch with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side. When the piece measures 30 cm / 11 3/4'' decrease 1 stitch in each side – read DECREASE TIP (= 2 stitches decreased). Repeat the decreases when the piece measures 50 cm / 19 3/4'' = 108-114-122-130-138-148 stitches.

When all stitches on the shoulder have been placed on the thread there are 18-18-20-20-22-22 stitches left for the neck in the middle of the back piece. Bind off these stitches for neck. All stitches have now been bind off/placed on the thread and the piece measures approx. 85-88-91-94-97-99 cm / 33½"-34½"-35 3/4"-37"-38 1/4"-39'' (measured from top of shoulder down).
Place the stitches from the thread on the one shoulder back on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Knit 1 row from the wrong side – NOTE. To avoid holes in the transitions where stitches have been on the thread, pick up the loop between 2 stitches and knit it twisted together with the next stitch on the row. Bind off. To avoid a tight bind off edge you can bind off with a larger needle size. Repeat on the other shoulder.

Place the stitches from the thread back on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Knit 1 row from the wrong side – NOTE.

Loosely bind off. Place the stitches from the thread on the shoulder back on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Knit 1 row from the wrong side – NOTE!

SLEEVE:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle.
Cast on 34-36-38-40-40-42 stitches with circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and Alpaca Bouclé. Change to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. Work 2 ridges.

When the piece measures 43-42-41-39-38-36 cm / 17"-16½"-16"-15 1/4"-15"-14 1/4'' insert 1 marker thread in each side.

Work 1 more sleeve in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams inside the bind off edge. Sew the sleeves to the body – marker threads in each side of the sleeve should meet the outermost stitch bind off for sleeve in the body. Sew the seam under the sleeves and the side seams edge to edge in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch, but stop by the stitch cast on after 25 cm / 9 3/4'' on the body (= split). Sew together the bind off edge on the 2 parts of collar and sew the whole collar to the neck on the back piece. Cut and fasten strands. Sew the buttons onto the left band approx. 4 cm / 1½'' from the edge.

Klopt het dat voor het vest model Forest Mist maat S slechts 450 gram Alpaca Bouclé benodigd is, terwijl voor trui model Outlander ( 71 / 36) 550 gram garen nodig is? Hoe kan dit?
