Knit 1 row from right side over the last 17-19-21-24-27-31 stitches on row, turn and purl 1 row from wrong side, at the end of row purl the last 2 stitches together. Slip all stitches back on needle, and knit 1 row from right side and pick up 2 stitches in each side (between stitches for neck and stitches for shoulder) towards the neck = 68-72-78-84-92-100 stitches. Purl 1 row from wrong side while increasing 6-6-4-6-6-6 stitches evenly = 74-78-82-90-98-106 stitches. Work as follows - from right side: Knit 2, * purl 2, knit 2 *, repeat from *-* the entire row. Work rib for 7 cm, piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-62-64 cm, then loosely cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Work piece in the round on double pointed needles and work sleeve top down to make it easier to adjust the length of the sleeves.

After 2 cm begin to decrease mid under sleeve by knitting 3 stitches together mid under sleeve - repeat this decrease 8-9-9-10-10-10 times in total every 5½-4½-4½-4-4-4 cm. = 28-28-30-30-32-34 stitches.

Dzień dobry, mam pytanie do pkt Przód &tyl, po 7 cm ściągacza wykonujemy zamknięcie 12 oczek w 1 rzędzie? To kilka cm.. zastanawiam się czy będzie to dobrze wyglądało.

DROPS Design 18.02.2019 kl. 07:14:

Witaj Klaudio! Będzie wyglądało jak na zdjęciu, po prostu szerokość ściągacza i przodu będzie zbliżona. Nie zamykając tych oczek ściągacz byłby węższy od przodu, a przód miałby szczególnie na dole taką małą fałdkę (trochę jak w dawnych swetrach). Pozdrawiamy!

Dejlig og smuk trøje.

Schlicht und schnell gestrickt, ist dieser "Sailinglove" Pulli bestimmt ein kuscheliger Begleiter für den Frühling und die frischeren Sommerabende, oder auf dem Segelboot.
