Switch to needle size 8 mm, work 1 row in stocking stitch while increasing 12 stitches evenly = 48-50-52-54-56-58 stitches on needle. Work in stocking stitch until piece measures 14 cm.

Then cast off all stitches.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams, sew edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.

NECK EDGE:
Work an edge around the neck, begin by slipping stitches from right front piece on to needle size 8 mm without working them, pick up approx. 50-58 stitches around the next, slip stitches from left front piece on a needle and work over these stitches. There are approx. 62-70 stitches on needle. Work in garter stitch back and forth over all stitches until 2 ridges have been worked. Cast off on next row from right side, cut and fasten the yarn.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew in sleeves, sew edge to edge with neat little stitches. Sew seam under sleeve. Begin at rib and sew up to armhole, then sew side seam down until 12 cm remain at the bottom for vent. Repeat under the other sleeve and along the other side. Cut and fasten the yarn.

TWINED STRING:
Cut 2 lengths of 3 metres each. Twine the strands together until they make resistance, fold the string double and it will twines itself again. Thread 3 small beads on the end of each string, and tie a knot so that the string remains twined and the beads stay on.
Make 2 small tassels and attach one to the end of each string, below the beads, like so: Cut 8 strands of approx. 20 cm, keep the strands together and fold in the middle. Tie another strand approx. 1-2 cm below fold to fasten the tassel. Attach tassel to the string by pulling string through loop at the top of tassel and make a knot. Then fasten string at the edge in each side of neck edge mid front.

Hello! I would like to know if there is a pattern for the beautiful hat as well. Thank you

DROPS Design 15.07.2019 kl. 09:03:

Dear Vana, we do not have any pattern for the hat, it's not a handmade hat sorry. Happy knitting!

Dålig bild

Claudia 31.05.2019 - 10:34:

I don't think the instructions for the back are correct. There are not enough worked stitches. I'm working the smallest size. I cast on 62 stitches. After knitting over these for 65cm the instructions say 14 stiches for right shoulder, 20 for center, and 14 for left shoulder, that's 48 stitches, not 62. What's happened to the other 14 stitches?

DROPS Design 31.05.2019 kl. 11:07:

Dear Claudia, you cast on 62 sts and work as on front piece = you will cast off and decrease for the armholes on each side when piece measures 48 cm: 3 sts 1 time and 1 st 4 times (= 7 sts x 2 sides = 14 sts cast off and decreased for the armholes), so that you have: 62 - 14= 48 sts. Happy knitting!
