Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American 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 and A.2. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

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

The piece is worked in the round with circular needle.
Cast on 98 stitches with circular needle size 8 mm and Eskimo. Work 2 RIDGES - see description above. Insert 1 marker at the beginning of the round and 1 marker after 49 stitches = sides. Allow the markers to follow your work upwards. Then work as follows: Knit 17, A.1 (= 15 stitches) and knit 66. When A.1 has been worked in height, there are 108 stitches on the needle.
Continue as follows: Knit 17, A.2 (= 25 stitches) and knit 66. Continue this pattern upwards. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures approx. 43 cm decrease 5 stitches over each cable in A.2 (= 10 stitches decreased) = 98 stitches. Work 2 ridges and cast off - read CASTING OFF TIP.

Fold the piece at the markers. Sew the top edges together, edge to edge in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch. Lay a pillow inside the casing and sew the bottom edges together.
