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

See diagrams A.1 to A.4. (A.4 applies to size L/XL and XXL/XXXL).




Worked back and forth on circular needle in one piece and sewn together when finished.

Cast on 76-86-94 stitches on circular needle size 5 mm with 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). Work 3 ridges in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above. Now work pattern as follows: Work 4 stitches in garter stitch, 3-5-9 stitches in stocking stitch, A.1a over the next 12 stitches, A.2a over the next 38 stitches, A.3a over the next 12 stitches, A.4a (= 6 stitches) 0-1-1 time in width (i.e. in size S/M do not work A.4), 3-5-9 stitches in stocking stitch, 4 stitches in garter stitch. On first row in diagram increase 8-10-10 stitches = 84-96-104 stitches.
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.1a to A.1b have been worked vertically, continue with A.1b, A.2b, A.3b and A.4b the same way. Repeat A.1b to A.4b vertically until piece measures approx. 127-135-150 cm – adjust to finish after a whole repetition vertically. Work 3 ridges AT THE SAME TIME on first row decrease 8-10-10 stitches evenly – read DECREASE TIP = 76-86-94 stitches. Cast off.

Place one long side against one short side and sew tog (opposite long side now forms a tip mid front).


= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= purl from the right side, knit from the wrong side
= Bobble: Increase 3 stitches by knitting 1 stitch in front and back loop of stitch until there are 4 stitches, work 3 rows in stocking stitch back and forth of these 4 stitches. Knit the 4 stitches together = 1 stitch.
= slip 1 stitch on cable needle behind piece, knit 2, purl 1 from cable needle
= slip 2 stitches on cable needle in front of piece, purl 1, knit 2 from cable needle
= slip 1 stitch on cable needle behind piece, knit 3, purl 1 from cable needle
= slip 3 stitches on cable needle in front of piece, purl 1, knit 3 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
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over. On next row purl yarn over twisted to avoid hole.
= this square is not a stitch, go directly to next symbol in diagram

Er staat in het patroon dat het dichte vierkantje geen steek is Hoe moet ik dat zien want je maakt een omslag waar moet ik die steek laten want als je die omslag maakt dan blijf ik wel met die steken zitten of moet ik ze laten vallen

Dag Trijny, De volgende steek op de linker naald is de eerste steek na de zwarte blokjes in het telpatroon. Je slaat de steken dus niet op de naald over, maar in het telpatroon.
