See diagrams A.1 and A.2.




Worked back and forth. Work sideways, first back and forth over all stitches, then divide into 3 parts and finish them back and forth separately. Plait these parts, then work back and forth over all stitches. Then sew piece together mid back.

Cast on 24-24-24 stitches on needle size 3.5 mm = US 4 with Nepal. Work A.1 over all stitches – REMEBER KNITTING GAUGE. When piece measures 18-19-20 cm = 7”-7 1/2”-8”, divide the piece into 3 parts for cable (continue A.1 as before) as follows:
Work the first 8 stitches, insert the remaining 16 stitches on a stitch holder. Continue A.1 as before over these 8 stitches for 15 cm = 6” – finish from wrong side, cut the yarn and slip the stitches on a new stitch holder. Work the next 8 stitches from the first stitch holder the same way – finish from wrong side, cut the yarn and slip the stitches on a new stitch holder. Work the last 8 stitches from stitch holder the same way – finish from wrong side but do not cut the yarn!
Now place the 3 parts together to make a cable – see diagram A.2, as follows:
Place part-1 over part-2 and then part-1 under part-3. Place part-2 over part-3 and then part-2 under part-1. The parts are now placed as follows from left to right from right side: part 3-1-2 = 24 stitches. Slip the parts on to the same needle in this order and continue pattern as before over all stitches until piece measures 51-53-55 cm = 20”-21”-21 5/8”, bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Sew bind-off edge to cast-on edge. Sew one and one stitch to avoid a chunky seam.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= purl from the right side, knit from the wrong side

Hej. Hvordan kan det være, at der i denne opskrift bruges strikkepind 3,5, når der ellers anbefales 5 til dette garn?

Hej Jutta, Vores designer har valgt at bruge pind 3,5 til dette mønster, men det som er vigtigt er at du skal få 20 masker på 10 cm for at pandebåndet ikke skal blive for løst. God fornøjelse!
