EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

-------------------------------------------------------

PATTERN:
Mittens: See diagrams A.1 to A.5.
Socks: See diagrams A.6 to A.9.

LATVIAN CABLE:
The cable is made up of 3 rounds – all the rounds are drawn into the diagram and are worked as follows:
ROUND 1: * Knit 1 with off white, knit 1 with goldenrod *, work from *-* to end of round.
ROUND 2: Lay both strands to the front of the piece (towards you). Take the off white strand to the back of the piece, purl 1 and take the strand to the front again. Take the goldenrod strand under the off white strand and to the back of the piece, purl 1 and take the strand to the front again. Continue like this, purling alternately with off white and golden rod, but always take the strand under the strand from the last stitch worked.
ROUND 3: Work as round 2, but now always take the strand OVER the strand from the last stitch worked.

DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needles (e.g. 90 stitches), and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 8) = 11.2. In this example, knit approx. each 10th and 11th stitch together.

HEEL DECREASE:
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit until there are 9 stitches left in all sizes, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over, turn the piece.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Work until there are 9 stitches left, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass the slipped stitch over, turn the piece.
ROW 3: Work until there are 8 stitches left, slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over, turn the piece. 
ROW 4: Work until there are 8 stitches left, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, purl 1, pass the slipped stitch over, turn the piece. 
Continue to decrease like this (i.e. work until there is 1 stitch less before slipping 1 stitch) until there are 15 stitches left on the needle for all sizes.

-------------------------------------------------------

MITTENS - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles, bottom up.

LEFT MITTEN:
Cast on 64 stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 and off white. Work A.1 (= 16 stitches) a total of 4 times on the round. When A.1 has been worked in height there are 72 stitches on the round. Now work A.2 (= 9 stitches) a total of 8 times on the round. When A.2 has been worked in height there are 56 stitches on the round. Continue with A.3 (= 14 stitches) a total of 4 times on the round. When A.3 has been completed, continue with A.4 (= 56 stitches). REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When you have worked as far as the black square in A.4, work A.5 (= 1 stitch on the first round) onwards over this square (the other stitches are continued in A.4 as before). When you have increased 7 times on each side of A.5 and there are 15 stitches for the thumb gusset, work 4 rounds without increasing (as shown in A.5), then place the 15 thumb-stitches on a thread. Cast on 1 new stitch behind the stitches on the thread = 56 stitches.
Continue working according to A.4. On the round with an arrow insert a marker in each side of the mitten – see diagram, at the same time as you start to decrease on this round:
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the stitches with markers (= 4 stitches decreased on the round): Decrease as follows before the marker: Knit 2 together.
Decrease as follows after the marker: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over. Decrease like this a total of 11 times.
After all the decreases there are 12 stitches left on the needles. Cut the strand and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well.

THUMB:
Place the 15 thumb-stitches back on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1.5. Knit up 9 stitches in the edge behind the thumb = 24 stitches. Continue in the round according to A.5. On the round with an arrow insert a marker in each side of the thumb – see diagram, at the same time as you begin to decrease on this round: Decrease 1 stitch on each side of the stitches with markers (= 4 stitches decreased on the round):
Decrease as follows before the marker: Knit 2 together.
Decrease as follows after the marker: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over. Decrease like this a total of 4 times.
After all the decreases there are 8 stitches left on the needles. Cut the strand and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well.

RIGHT MITTEN:
Cast on and work as for left mitten.

-------------------------------------------------------

SOCKS - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles, from the leg down to toe.

Cast on 72-72-80 stitches with double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1.5 and off white. Knit 1 round, then work pattern according to diagram A.6 (= 8 stitches) a total of 9-9-10 times on the round. On the last round in A.6 increase 9-9-10 stitches = 81-81-90 stitches. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Now work pattern A.7 (= 9 stitches) a total of 9-9-10 times on the round. On the last round in A.7 (the round with a star) decrease 0-0-8 stitches – read DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced) = 72-72-72 stitches. Now work A.8 (= 12 stitches) a total of 6 times on the round. On the last round in A.8 (the round with a star) decrease 2-2-2 stitches evenly on round = 70-70-70 stitches. Then continue with gray. Place the first 39 stitches on a thread (= top of foot) = 31 stitches for heel. Continue back and forth over the heel stitches for 5-5½-6 cm / 2''-2 1/4''-2½'', insert a marker here – THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE. Then work HEEL DECREASE - read description above. After the heel decrease knit up 12-14-15 stitches on each side of the heel and the 39 stitches from the thread are placed back on the needles = 78-82-84 stitches. Insert a marker on each side of the 39 stitches on top of foot. The markers follow your work onwards. Continue with gray and on the first round decrease on each side of the stitches on top of foot as follows: Knit together the 2 stitches before the stitches on top of foot and knit twisted together the 2 stitches after the stitches on top of foot. Decrease like this every 2nd round a total of 3-5-6 times = 72-72-72 stitches. Continue with 10-6-4 rounds with gray. Work as far as the marker before the stitches on top of foot. Work A.9 (= 12 stitches) a total of 6-6-6 times on the round. When the whole of A.9 has been worked in height, there are 66-66-66 stitches on the round. Now continue with gray to finished length. On the next round decrease 10-6-4 stitches evenly on round = 56-60-62 stitches. Continue until the piece measures 18-19-21 cm / 7''-7½''-8¼'' / 7''-7½''-8¼'' measured from the marker on the heel (= 4-5-6 cm / 1½''-2''-2 3/8'' left to finished length). Insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 28-30-31 stitches both on top and under the foot. Then work stockinette stitch over all stitches AT THE SAME TIME as you decrease to toe on each side of both markers. Decrease as follows: Work to 3 stitches before the marker, knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decrease), knit 2 (the marker sits in the middle of these 2 stitches) and knit 2 twisted together (= 1 stitch decreased). Repeat at the other marker = 4 stitches decreased on round. Decrease like this in each side every 2nd round a total of 4-7-9 times and then every round a total of 6-3-1 times = 16-20-22 stitches left on round. On the next round knit all stitches together 2 and 2 = 8-10-11 stitches. Cut the strand and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. Work 1 more sock in the same way.

Momenteel is het onmogelijk om dit mooie patroon uit te printen??? Bij andere patronen ook niet mogelijk. Is er een fout bij jullie op de site?

Wenn ich diese Handschuhe stricke habe ich lange Spannfäden. Was kann ich machen das dieses vermieden wird. Denn beim anziehen des Handschuhs bleibt man ja leicht hängen. Danke Karin

Am besten ist es, den mitgeführten Faden auf der Rückseite während des Strickens nach ein paar Maschen mit dem Arbeitsfaden auf der Rückseite der Arbeit zu verkreuzen, dann werden die Spannfäden fixiert und hängen nicht durch. Gutes Gelingen!
