START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SHOULDER PIECE - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth with single pointed needles/circular needle, from sleeve to sleeve.

SHOULDER PIECE:
Loosely cast on 93-93-113 stitches with needle size 4.5 mm and 2 strands Kid-Silk. Remove 1 strand and continue working with just 1 strand. Work 2 RIDGES – read description above. Work pattern as follows: Work A.1 over the first 17 stitches, repeat A.2 over the next 60-60-80 stitches (= 6-6-8 repeats of 10 stitches) and finish with A.3 over the remaining 16 stitches. When A.1 to A.3 have been completed in height continue as follows:
Work A.4 over 17-17-27 stitches, 10 stitches in garter stitch (insert a marker thread after these stitches to mark where A.5 starts), work A.5 over the next 39 stitches (insert a marker thread after A.5 to mark where A.5 ends), work 10 stitches in garter stitch and finish with A.6 over the remaining 17-17-27 stitches. Allow the marker threads to follow your work onwards. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Repeat A.4, A.5 and A.6 in height - each time A.5 is worked 1 time in height, A.4 and A.6 are worked 2 times in height. When the piece measures approx. 79-87-87 cm – adjust to after a complete repeat of A.5 in height, continue as follows:
Work A.1 over the first 17 stitches, repeat A.2 over the next 60-60-80 stitches (= 6-6-8 repeats of 10 stitches) and finish with A.3 over the remaining 16 stitches. When A.1 to A.3 have been completed in height, work 2 ridges. Use 2 strands and cast off with knit on the next row. The piece measures approx. 84-92-92 cm.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the shoulder piece double. Sew together as shown in the sketch; sew A to A and B to B – sew in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so the seam is flat (sew approx. 2½-3 cm).

Diagram

= knit from right side, knit from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over; yarn over is knitted on the next row (you will have a hole)
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted together stitches
= knitting direction
= seam under sleeve
= this is how the garment is worn

Hej, Jeg er i tvivl om det er en fejl i skema A5, nemlig den lille mønster, som begynder m.m. 8-12 og 28-32 p.1 Jeg er kommet i gang med strikningen og ser frem til svaret🙂 På forhånd tak
