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.
Gauge: 21 sts x 28 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm

Washing: This pattern is written based on the assumption that the garment will be washed at 40° C , laid out in its proper dimensions (see schematic diagram) and dried flat before use (not in an electric dryer). Under these circumstances denim yarn will not shrink more than other cotton yarn. The denim yarn will become lighter (in color) every time it is washed (exactly like jeans). The garment should be washed separately the first few times.

Pattern: See chart (1 chart = 1 repeat). The pattern is seen from the right side.

Seed stitch (on an even number of sts):
Row 1: * K 1, P 1 *
Row 2: * P 1, K 1 *
Seed stitch (on an odd number of sts): All rows: K 1, *P 1, K 1*

Row 2: * knit the purl sts from the previous row and purl the knit sts from the previous row *

When the work measures 23 (23-23) cm inc 1 st at each side for seam = 123 (132-139) sts. Knit seed st over the 6 edge sts (including 1 edge st) at each side for a further 2 cm, then knit stockinette st over all sts.

De teltekening m1 en m2 geeft het motief aan op de goede kant. Wat brei je dan op de averechtse kant?

La bordure arrondie (tricotée en point de riz) roule. Que faire pour éviter ceci? Merci
