Notes

the original pattern size is in size Small, so I’m adding extra stitches and using needles 2 sizes up (7mm instead of 5mm, 12mm instead of 10mm).

DONE:

Cast on 152 stitches with needle 12, which should give approx 108cm at my horizontal gauge. I prefer it to be lose.

edge (first 11 rows):
as per pattern

body:

needle 12mm: 3 rows x knit, 1 x purl, 2 x knit;
needle 7mm: 3 rows x purl, 3 x knit, 1 x purl, 3 x knit
needle 5mm: 3 rows x purl, 3 x knit, 1 x purl, 3 x knit

  • check length so far
  • if about 20 cm (=half of the length from bottom to sleeve opening - note: the length may actually be more due me going up two sizes with the needles and using a thicker yarn!), then continue as follows:

needle 5mm: 3 rows x knit, 1 x purl, 2 x knit;
needle 5mm: 3 rows x purl, 3 x knit, 1 x purl, 3 x knit
needle 5mm: 3 rows x purl, 3 x knit, 1 x purl, 3 x knit

  • check length: it should be approx. 40 cm now
  • check circumference before going on: it may have turned out too large! (bottom seems like ~ 2x69cm!)
  • divide front and back

Somehow ended up with 154 (instead of 152) sts, so divided into 77 each side

  • continue front with needle 5 up to the neck opening

Continue for 22 cm from where it divided as follows :

needle 5mm: 3 rows x knit, 1 x purl, 2 x knit;
TODO:
needle 5mm: 3 rows x purl, 3 x knit, 1 x purl, 3 x knit
needle 5mm: 3 rows x purl, 3 x knit, 1 x purl, 3 x knit
needle 5mm: 3 rows x knit, 1 x purl, 2 x knit;
(now check that it’s 22 cm, if not add extra rows following previous patterns in the body)

Then knit the last 3 cm in stockinette st, ending with the wrong side.

Last row: k 15, bind off 42 stiches loosely, k 15.

  • do the same for back
  • close shoulder seams
