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.
INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

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

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. Choose diagram for your size. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side. Work the entire pattern in stockinette stitch. When diagram A.1 has been worked vertically, continue with mustard until finished measurements.

DECREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 84 stitches), minus stitches in garter stitch in the side (e.g. 6 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 12) = 6.5. I.e. in this example work alternately every 5th and 6th stitch and every 6th and 7th stitch together.

INCREASE TIP (applies to mid under sleeve):
Begin 1 stitch before marker thread, make 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker thread is in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On next round knit yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

BIND-OFF TIP:
To avoid a tight bind-off edge you may use a needle ½ size larger.
----------------------------------------------------------

SWEATER:
Work front and back piece back and forth on circular needle separately up to vent, then slip piece together and work in the round up to armholes. Then work front and back piece back and forth on circular needle separately. Work sleeves in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle.

BACK PIECE/FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 84-92-100-112-124-136 stitches on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with dark wash. Purl 1 row from wrong side. Then work as follows from right side: 3 stitches in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above - * knit 2/purl 2 *, repeat from *-* until 5 stitches remain, knit 2 and 3 stitches in garter stitch. Continue with rib and 3 stitches in garter stitch in each side until piece measures 3 cm / 1''. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8, and work 1 row in stockinette stitch with 3 stitches in garter stitch in each side, AT THE SAME TIME decrease 12-14-14-18-20-22 stitches evenly - read DECREASE TIP = 72-78-86-94-104-114 stitches. Switch to rusty red and continue in stockinette stitch and 3 stitches in garter stitch in each side until piece measures 7 cm / 2¾'' - REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Put piece aside and work front piece the same way.

BODY:
Slip back and front piece on to same circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 = 144-156-172-188-208-228 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side. Then work in stockinette stitch with rusty red until piece measures 7-8-9-8-9-11 cm / 2 3"-3"-3½"-3"-3½"-4½''. Then work A.1, read PATTERN above, AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 25-26-27-28-29-30 cm / 9¾''-10¼''-10 5/8''-11''-11 3/8''-11¾'', divide the piece at the markers. Finish each part separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 72-78-86-94-104-114 stitches. Continue with pattern as before and cast in addition on 1 edge stitch at the end of the first 2 rows = 74-80-88-96-106-116 stitches. Work edge stitches in garter stitch. When piece measures 43-45-47-49-51-53 cm / 17''-17 3/4''-18½''-19 1/4''-20''-21'', bind off the middle 28-28-30-30-32-32 stitches for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Bind off 1 stitch on next row from neck = 22-25-28-32-36-41 stitches on the shoulder. Continue until piece measures 45-47-49-51-53-55 cm / 17 3/4''-18½''-19 1/4''-20''-21''-21½'' and bind off. Work the other shoulder the same way.

FRONT PIECE:
= 72-78-86-94-104-114 stitches. Continue with pattern as before and cast in addition on 1 edge stitch at the end of the first 2 rows = 74-80-88-96-106-116 stitches.

Now slip the middle 20-20-22-22-24-24 stitches on 1 stitch holder for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to bind off for neck at beginning of every row from neck as follows: bind off 2 stitches 1 time and 1 stitch 3 times = 22-25-28-32-36-41 stitches. Continue until piece measures 45-47-49-51-53-55 cm / 17 3/4''-18½''-19 1/4''-20''-21''-21½'' and bind off. Work the other shoulder the same way.

Work sleeve in the round on double pointed needles/a short circular needle. Cast on 44-44-48-48-52-52 stitches on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 with mustard. Knit 1 round, then work rib = knit 2/purl 2. Work rib for 2 cm / 3/4'', then switch to double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8. Knit 1 round while decreasing 4-4-6-4-6-4 stitches evenly = 40-40-42-44-46-48 stitches. Now work 2 rounds in stockinette stitch with off white. Then work with mustard and stockinette stitch until finished measurements. Insert 1 marker thread at beginning of round (= mid under sleeve). When piece measures 8-5-4-7-5-8 cm / 3"-2"-1½"-2 3/4"-2"-3'', increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve - read INCREASE TIP.

When piece measures 38-37-36-35-33-31 cm / 15"-14½"-14 1/4"-13 3/4"-13"-12 1/4'' (shorter measurements in the larger sizes because of wider shoulders), loosely bind off - read BIND-OFF TIP.

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.

Hello, we are sorry you have problems with the pictures, but from our side things seems to be working fine. It might have been a temporary connectivity problem perhaps?

Waouhhh, mon modèle préféré de cette collection 2018, qui manque un peu de modernité et de couleurs vives ! Je le tricoterai certainement cet été, mais pas en Paris Merci

Jennifer King 17.01.2018 - 11:42:

Love the idea of this one, it would fit so well in my wardrobe!
