Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.



To calculate how to decrease/increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 32 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreased/increases to be done (e.g. 6) = 5.3. 
In this example decrease by working approx. every 4th and 5th stitch together. When increasing make 1 yarn over after approx. every 5th stitch. On next row work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
Knit all rows.
1 ridge vertically = knit 2 rows.

See diagram A.1. First row = right side.




Piece is worked back and forth with 2 strands.

Cast on 32 stitches on needle size 3.5 mm with 2 strands Paris. Knit 3 rows. Then knit 1 row while at the same time decreasing 6 stitches evenly - read INCREASE/DECREASE TIP = 26 stitches. Work 1 ridge in GARTER STITCH - read explanation above.
Continue to work waffle pattern from right side as follows: Work 2 stitches in garter stitch, repeat A.1 until 2 stitches remain on row (= 11 repetitions of 2 stitches) and finish with 2 stitches in garter stitch. Repeat A.1 vertically - REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures approx. 18 cm - adjust after 2nd row in A.1, work next row as follows (= wrong side): 2 stitches in garter stitch, * purl 1, lift loop around the stitch and purl this together with stitch on needle *, work from *-* until 2 stitches remain on needle, and finish with 2 stitches in garter stitch.
Then knit 1 row while increasing 6 stitches evenly = 32 stitches. Knit 3 rows. Work next row with an inserted loop as follows: Knit until 2 stitches remain - cast on 7 new stitches on row, then knit the last 2 stitches together. On next row cast off all stitches by knitting (including the new stitches for loop). Cut and fasten the yarn. Knit another pot holder the same way.


= knit from right side
= knit from wrong side
= knit 1 in stitch from previous row and then drop stitch off left needle
= lift loop around stitch and knit this together with stitch on needle

Bonjour, le fil Paris est utilisé en double, et appartient au groupe C. N'y a-t-il pas une erreur pour la taille des aiguilles 3.5 ? Merci

Bonjour Cecile! 3,5 is the needle size we recommend for this knitting tension. They are supposed to be very compact and tight-knit. Happy knitting!
