The original shape of this cardigan is underlined by the arrangement of the braids. Very dynamic and unusual model!




Yarn (60% cotton, 40% polyacryl; 110 m / 50 g) - 550 g bright green; needles number 4; circular needles number 4; 5 buttons (diameter 44 mm).

Front rows: at the beginning of row 1, remove the loop as purl (thread at work), remove 1 loop, 1 loop as purl, knit up to 3 loops from the end at the end of the row, then remove the loop as purl (thread at work), 1 front, 1 loop to remove, as purl. 

Purl rows: at the beginning of row 1 purl, 1 loop to remove as purl (thread before work), 1 purl, at the end of a row knit up to 3 loops from the end, then 1 purl, 1 loop to remove as purl (thread before work), 1 purl.

When knitting on an odd number of loops:  
Facial rows: alternately 1 facial, 1 purl, finish 1 facial. 
purl rows: knit loops on the picture. 

With an even number of loops front and back rows: edge, alternately 1 front, 1 purl, edge.

Front rows - front loops, purl rows - purl loops.

Take according diagram 1. The diagram shows the right shelf (without the bar, made in pattern 2). On it are given facial rows. In the purl ranks knit all the loops on the picture or according. instructions, knit nakida purl. Run 1 time 1–148th row.

Knit as a structural pattern A, but agreed Figure 2. The diagram shows the right half of the backrest.


Knit as structural patterns A or B, but mirrored acc. scheme 1 or 2, respectively, i.e. loops read from left to right. 

In addition: instead of tying 2 loops together on the front, constantly knit 2 loops along with a tilt to the left (see the legend) and instead of tying 2 loops along with a tilt to the left, knit 2 loops together on the front, and also perform all crosses in the opposite direction respectively.

Fucking gaze
Facial rows - purl loops, purl rows - facial loops. 

Front and back rows - front loops.

Odd number of loops. Front rows: alternately 1 purl, 1 loop from the bottom row (= 1 front, with the introduction of the needle 1 row below), finish 1 purl. 

Purl rows: knit loops on the picture.

8 p. + 3 p. Of the patent region x 22 p. = 4.5 x 10 cm, connected by a rubber band; 
18 p. X 35 p. = 10 x 10 cm, connected with a semi-patent pattern; 
19 p. X 27 p. = 10 x 10 cm, connected by the front surface.

Due to the large number of loops, the back and the shelves are knitted in circular needles in rows in the forward and reverse direction. 

In pattern 9, only every 2nd row is visible in the front hems on the front side. 

Due to regular reductions and increases in structural patterns, a diagonal knitting direction with corners is formed. Calculation pattern acc. density knitting is impossible. Dimensions in cm in the instructions and the size of the pattern obtained by measuring the model. 

Shelves and back to armhole knit a single cloth. Then finish the parts separately.


Dial 251 stitches with a cross-shaped set and, after the initial purl row, knit for a slider with an elastic band, at the same time start and finish 3 points with the patent edge. 

For the 1st buttonhole, 1.5 cm = 4 rows from the initial row, knit 3 pts each with a patent edge and an elastic band with an elastic band, then make 1 nakid and knit 2 loops together with a purl. Tie a purl in a purl row. 

The following 4 holes for buttons to perform similarly in each of the 26th row. 

After 8 cm = 20 rows from the beginning of the knitting of the plank, continue the work as follows: 3 s. With patent edge, 8 s. Continue knitting with elastic band (= strap for right shelf), 50 s. With structural pattern A, 3 s. With front satin stitch (= right side line), 61 p. structural pattern B, 1 p. front smooth surface (= middle back loop), 61 p. structural pattern in mirror image (structural pattern B in mirror image), 3 p. front smooth surface (= left sideline) , 50 p. Structural pattern in the mirror image (structural pattern A in the mirror image), 8 p. Continue rubber band (= left shelf strip), 3 s. patent edge.

The average 125 p. Form the back, the outer 62 p. - shelves, between them is 1 p. For the lateral line. For reference, we recommend marking these loops. 

After 33 cm = 72 rows from the strap in the middle of the back for the beginning of the corner of pattern 9, knit the last loop of the structural pattern B and the 1st loop of the structural pattern in the mirror image (structural pattern B in the mirror image) with the inside, respectively, continue the knit between the middle loop of the back as a loop from the bottom row (see semi-patent pattern). Pattern acc. scheme to expand in each front row on both sides by 1 loop. 

At the same time, for a bevel of the neck of the shelves, after 42 cm = 92 rows from the strip, continue to knit on both sides with a patent edge and 8 s. With an elastic band for the strip, but in structural pattern A and in structural pattern in mirror image (structural pattern A in mirror image), subtract 28 x 1 n., for this, according to scheme no longer perform nakida. 

At the same time, after 42 cm = 98 rows from the plank, divide the work for armholes and, first for the right shelf, continue work only on the first 59 hinges acc. pattern, 1st loop will be edge. 

After 65 cm = 148 rows from the strip leave 3 p. Of the patent edge + 8 p. Of elastic, the remaining 23 p. Of shoulder close. 

Loop the patent edge and elastic bands again dial on the spokes and on the inner edge add 1 edge crossed from the transverse thread. 

For a backrest neckline, tie on another 12 loops another 18 cm according to pattern, then leave the loop. 

The left shelf on the last 59 loops finish mirroring. 

Then dial the middle 127 stitches for the backrest and continue to work according to pattern, while in the 1st row on both sides to close the marked loops of the side lines = 125 p., on both sides of the outer loops become edge. 

After 54 cm = 140 rows from the plank - pattern 9 additionally rounds the neck - close the average 69 p. For the neck and finish both sides. 

For rounding along the inner edge, close in each 2nd row 1 x 3 n. And 1 x 2 n.  

Through 65 cm = 148 rows from the plank close the remaining 23 n. Shoulders.

Dial on the needles for each sleeve 60 loops with a cross-shaped set and tie a 4 cm rubber band for the ledge between the edge bands. 

Continue work with the front satin stitch, while evenly distributing in the 1st row, add 24 s. = 84 s.  

After 18.5 cm = 50 rows from the bar, close all the loops.

Run shoulder seams. Sew the stitches with a knitted stitch and sew the strap into the neck of the back, while sitting on the edges of the neck. Run the seams of the sleeves and, slightly pulling, sew the sleeves. Sew buttons.
