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.

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

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to decrease/increase evenly, use total number of stitches (i.e. 161 stitches), minus bands (e.g. 10 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by number of decreases/increases to be done (= e.g. 3) = 50.3. In this example decrease by knitting approx. every 49th and 50th stitch together. Do not decrease over bands. If increase is done, increase after approx. every 50th stitch (increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on next row work yarn over twisted to avoid holes).

SEED STITCH:
ROW 1: * Knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-*.
ROW 2: Knit over purl and purl over knit.
Repeat 2nd row upwards.

BUTTONHOLES (bottom up):
Decrease for buttonholes on right band. 1 BUTTONHOLE = knit third and fourth stitch from edge together and make 1 yarn over. On next row knit yarn over = hole.
Decrease for buttonholes when piece measures:
S: 7, 11, 15 and 20 cm
M: 7, 12, 17 and 22 cm.
L: 7, 12, 17 and 23 cm.
XL: 7, 13, 19 and 25 cm.
XXL: 1, 12, 17, 22 and 26 cm
XXXL: 7, 13, 18, 23 and 28 cm
