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.
INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

CHOOSING SIZE (applies to press pot):
Measure the press pot and see if it has the same measurements as a large or small press pot. If the circumference does not fit any of the sizes you can choose the size that fits best and add 1 repetition (or more) of A.Xa (= 4 stitches = 2 cm) after the first band (= A.1) from right side and possible 1 repetition (or more) after A.Xb (= 4 stitches = 2 cm) before the last band (= A.5) - so that the circumference gets bigger.
I.e. when casting on stitches at the beginning of piece, cast on 4 stitches more than what is stated in pattern for every A.Xa/A.Xb added.

CHOOSING SIZE (applies to cup):
Measure the cup and see if it has the same measurements as a large or small cup. If the circumference does not fit any of the sizes you can choose the size that fits the best and add 1 repetition (or more) A.8 (= 4 stitches = 2 cm) before the last band (= A.9) from right side for every extra 2 cm needed in circumference.
I.e. when casting on stitches at the beginning of piece, cast on 4 stitches more than what is stated in pattern for every A.8 added.

PATTERN:
Cover for press pot: See diagrams A.1 to A.5. Add if needed A.Xa/A.Xb to get a bigger circumference on cover.
Cover for cup: See diagram A.6, A.7a (large cup), A.7b (small cup) A.8 and A.9. Add if needed A.8 to get a bigger circumference on cover.
Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

COVER FOR PRESS POT:
Work piece back and forth on circular needle. To choose the correct size for press pot - read CHOOSING SIZE (applies to press pot).

Continue back and forth like this. When the first 6 rows in diagram have been worked, switch to circular needle size 3 mm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue to work. When 3 rows remain in diagrams, switch to circular needle size 2.5 mm and work as follows:
On row marked with black star in A.3 decrease 1 stitch on needle so that the rib is symmetrical in each side.

Diagram

= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= purl from the right side, knit from the wrong side
= slip 5 stitches on cable needle behind piece, knit 5, knit 5 from cable needle
= slip 5 stitches on cable needle in front of piece, knit 5, knit 5 from cable needle
= slip 4 stitches on cable needle behind piece, knit 4, knit 4 from cable needle
= slip 4 stitches on cable needle in front of piece, knit 4, knit 4 from cable needle
= slip 3 stitches on cable needle behind piece, knit 3, knit 3 from cable needle
= slip 3 stitches on cable needle in front of piece, knit 3, knit 3 from cable needle
= slip 2 stitches on cable needle behind piece, knit 2, knit 2 from cable needle
= slip 2 stitches on cable needle in front of piece, knit 2, knit 2 from cable needle
= slip 1 stitch on cable needle behind piece, knit 1, knit 1 from cable needle, slip 1 stitch on cable needle in front of piece, knit 1, knit 1 from cable needle
= slip 1 stitch on cable needle behind piece, purl 1, knit 1 from cable needle, slip 1 stitch on cable needle in front of piece, knit 1, purl 1 from cable needle
= purl 2 together
= knit 2 together
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over. On next row knit yarn over twisted to avoid hole.
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over. On next row knit yarn over (knit from wrong side) to make hole
= knit 2 together
= when this row is worked (from wrong side), decrease the first stitch ONLY on first repetition of A.3 (seen from wrong side) by knitting the first 2 stitches together (= 1 stitch decreased). This is done so that the rib is symmetrical in each side towards A.4 in one side and A.2 in the other side of piece - see explanation in pattern!
