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 THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 183 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 11) = 16.6. In this example, alternately knit together every 15th and 16th stitch and every 16th and 17th stitch.

DECREASE TIP-2 (for the sides):
Start 3 stitches before the marker thread in the side: Knit 2 stitches together, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

RAGLAN:
Decrease to raglan on each side of A.1.
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of A.1 as follows (= 8 stitches decreased each time):
Start 2 stitches before A.1, knit 2 stitches together, work A.1, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.

INCREASE TIP (for sleeve):
Increase as follows mid under sleeve – start 1 stitch before the marker thread: Make 1 yarn over, knit 2 stitches (the marker thread sits in the middle of these 2 stitches), make 1 yarn over (= 2 stitches increased). On the next round, knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

JUMPER:
The jumper is worked in the round with circular needle, bottom up. The sleeves are worked in the round with double pointed needles/short circular needle.

BODY:
Cast on 183-200-213-225-247-264 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm and Paris. Work 3 RIDGES – see description above. Change to circular needle size 5.5 mm. Knit 1 round where you decrease 11-12-13-13-15-16 stitches evenly on round – read DECREASE TIP-1 = 172-188-200-212-232-248 stitches. Insert a marker thread at the beginning of the round and a marker thread after 86-94-100-106-116-124 stitches = in the sides. Then work stocking stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 7 cm decrease 1 stitch on each side of the marker threads in the sides (= 4 stitches decreased) – read DECREASE TIP-1. Decrease like this every 6 cm a total of 6 times in all sizes = 148-164-176-188-208-224 stitches. When the piece measures 39 cm work the next round as follows: Cast off the first 3-3-4-4-5-5 stitches for armhole, work the next 68-76-80-86-94-102 stitches (= front piece), cast off the next 6-6-8-8-10-10 stitches for armhole (= 3-3-4-4-5-5 stitches on each side of the marker thread), work the next 68-76-80-86-94-102 stitches (= back piece), cast off the last 3-3-4-4-5-5 stitches for armhole. Lay the piece to one side and work the sleeves.

SLEEVE:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles, change to short circular needle when you have enough stitches. Cast on 40-44-44-48-56-56 stitches with double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and Paris. Knit 1 round, then work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2). When the piece measures 6 cm change to double pointed needles size 5.5 mm. Knit 1 round where you decrease 6-6-6-8-12-12 stitches evenly on round = 34-38-38-40-44-44 stitches. Insert a marker thread at the beginning of the round (= mid under sleeve). Continue with stocking stitch. When the piece measures 9-8-10-8-7-10 cm increase 2 stitches mid under sleeve – read INCREASE TIP. Increase like this every 2½-2½-1½-1½-1½-1 cm a total of 12-13-17-17-19-20 times = 58-64-72-74-82-84 stitches. When the piece measures 41-40-39-37-36-34 cm (shorter measurements in larger sizes due to longer yoke) cast off the middle 6-6-8-8-10-10 stitches (= 3-3-4-4-5-5 stitches on each side of the marker thread) = 52-58-64-66-72-74 stitches. Lay the piece to one side and work 1 more sleeve.

YOKE:
Place the sleeves on the same circular needle as the body, where the stitches were cast off for the armholes = 240-268-288-304-332-352 stitches. Insert a marker thread in each transition between body and sleeves (= 4 marker threads).
The next round is worked as follows – start the round after the first 9-8-7-9-8-9 stitches on the back piece: Work * 50-60-66-68-78-84 stitches stocking stitch, A.1 (= 15 stitches), 40-44-48-54-58-62 stitches stocking stitch, A.1 (= 15 stitches) *, work from *-* a total of 2 times. Continue this pattern and decrease to RAGLAN – see description above. Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 19-21-23-25-27-29 times = 88-100-104-104-116-120 stitches. The yoke measures approx. 19-21-23-25-27-29 cm. Change to short circular needle size 4.5 mm. Work 4 ridges over all stitches, but on the first round decrease 6-15-16-13-19-18 stitches evenly on round = 82-85-88-91-97-102 stitches. Continue until you have worked a total of 4 ridges then cast off with knit – to avoid the cast-off edge being tight, cast off with needle size 5.5 mm.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew opening under sleeves.

Lovely to see older models

Adelle Lindsay 12.03.2018 - 14:08:

Love this pattern but don't knit in the round. Is there a 'pieced, flat' version available or a similar pattern of the same shape/style?

Dear Mrs Lindsay, you will find here some notes explaining how to adjust a pattern onto straight needles, you can also browse our patterns to find a similar one worked in several parts. Happy knitting!

How refreshing to see an "older" model. Grannies don't just wear shawls and grey cardigans.

Ineke 10.02.2018 - 16:07:

Hi, verschillende patronen uit de nieuwe catalogus kan ik niet zien. Het betreft o.a. w-680, me-130 en me-140. Bij het door willen klikken verschijnt enkel het plaatje en niet het patroon. Graag aanpassen. Bedankt Ineke

If using different models for the photoshoots, then models of all ages should be used not only very young or granny models. Some clothing simply does no suit everyone due to bodytype and /or age

Jennifer King 17.01.2018 - 11:44:

Think this will make a great transitional piece!

Me 09.01.2018 - 12:16:

How nice to see a real woman for a change! Yes, some patterns are only suited to the very young - but many are not.

Carmen 17.12.2017 - 09:08:

Super comfy!
