—- To prepare and wait for Christmas, I am going to offer a very special gift to you, my family of Knitters—-
An Advent calendar of free patterns to make something to warm up our loved ones and tell them "I took this time to please you and tell you that I love you". Pattern for today: Valentine's clothes.
1 ball of Jamieson 2 ply (100% shetland wool, 25g / 118m)
meD = knit stitch, 2 Tog = 2 stitches knitted together.
26 sts = 10cm in stocking st with 3 mm needles
IMPORTANT . check sample and adjust needle number if necessary
(It is knitted in jersey starting with the bottom ruffle and is made up of 2 pieces: front and back.)
Cast on 104 stitches.
row 1: Knit a purl row.
row 2: Knit all the stitches 2 by 2 = 52 stitches.
row 3: Knit a purl row.
row 4: Knit all the stitches 2 by 2 = 26 stitches.
row 5, 6 and 7: Continue in stockinette st.
row 9: 1 st, * 2 tog, 1 yarn over * repeat from * to * until the last stitch, 1 st.
row 10: Knit a purl row.
row 11: 1 st, 1 simple overlock, knit to the last 3 stitches, 2 tog, 1 st = 24 stitches.
row 12 to 14: Jersey
row 15: 1 st, 1 single overlock, knit to the last 3 stitches, 2 tog, 1 st.
Repeat rows 12 to 15 until you have 12 stitches.
For the neckline, knit 3 stitches, cast off the next 6 stitches and finish the row. You will now knit each side separately. Knit 3 rows in stockinette st on these 3 stitches, cut the yarn about ten centimeters and leave them on hold.
Take the 3 stitches on the right. Knit 3 rows in stockinette st on these 3 stitches, cut the yarn about ten centimeters and leave them on hold.
Knit the back of the dress in the same way.
Join the 2 shoulders by making a 3-needle flap. (Place the 3 stitches of the back shoulder on a needle (1), place the 3 stitches of the front shoulder on another needle (2). Cast off with a third needle, coming to knit a stitch from the needle 1 and needle 2 together. Do the same with the next stitches. When you have two stitches on the right needle, bind off normally.)
Sew the sides of the dress, leaving a space of 2 cm before the shoulders for the armholes.
It is knitted in garter stitch (all stitches are knitted).
Cast on 3 stitches.
row 1: Knit 1 stitch, make a yarn over (place the yarn in front of the work) and finish the row in place = 4 stitches.
Repeat row 1, increasing by one stitch at the beginning of each row until you have 26 stitches.
Next row: Knit 1 stitch, 1 yarn over, 2 stitches together, 7 stitches, cast off 6 stitches and knit the remaining 10 stitches.
Knit each side of the shawl separately, leaving the right side aside and finish the left side first as follows:
Row 1: Knit 1, 1 yarn over, 2 stitches together, finish the row.
row 2: knit 1, 2 stitches together, finish the row.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you have 2 stitches and finish by knitting 2 stitches together. Take the 10 stitches on hold on the right side, join the thread and continue as follows:
row 1: knit 1, 2 stitches together, finish the row.
Row 2: Knit 1, 1 yarn over, 2 stitches together, finish the row.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you have 2 stitches then knit these 2 stitches together.
Tuck in all the wires. Cross the shawl and sew on a small button to hold the 2 cross sections together.
