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.
RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

See diagrams A.1 to A.4. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

To avoid the bind off edge being tight, you can bind off with a ½ needle size larger.

The piece is worked in the round with circular needle.
Cast on 106 stitches with circular needle size 9 mm / US 13 and 2 strands Air. Work 1 RIDGE – see description above. Then work as follows: Purl 3 stitches, A.1 (= 4 stitches) over the next 16 stitches, A.2 (= 23 stitches), A.3 (= 4 stitches) over the next 64 stitches. When A.2 has been worked 1 time in height there are 114 stitches on needle. Continue with A.4 (= 31 stitches) over the stitches in A.2, the remaining stitches are continued as before. Continue this pattern upwards. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When piece measures 44 cm / 17 1/4'' decrease 4 stitches evenly over the cables in A.4 = 106 stitches. Work 1 ridge and bind off - read BINDING OFF TIP.

Fold the piece in each side so that the cables are mid front of cover. Sew the top edges together, edge to edge in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch. Lay a pillow inside the casing and then sew the bottom edges together.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= knit

= place 4 stitches on cable needle in front of piece, knit 4, knit 4 from cable needle
= place 4 stitches on cable needle behind piece, knit 4, knit 4 from cable needle

Il y un problème dans la grille et les instructions en français. Un rond, c'est une jeté et non une torsade. De plus il y a une indication de torsade 5 mailles mais il n'y a pas cela dans la grille à suivre. ???????

Bonjour Mme Chevrier, la légende des diagrammes a été corrigée. Nos stylistes vont vérifier pour la torsades sur 10 m. Merci, bon tricot!

Hallo, bei der Zeichenerklärung wurden die Erklärungen "zwischen zwei Maschen ein Umschlag..." und "4 Maschen auf eine Zopfnadel hinter..." vertauscht Viele Grüße Ulrike
