Then I finally made a blog post about how to knit the cardigans from my books. In this post I will consider the Alasuq cardigan, but the procedure is exactly the same in all my cardigan models.
Jeg må gjøre oppmerksom på at det er mange forskjellige måter å lage en kofte på, både i fremgangsmåte og knappestolper. Her skal jeg jeg vise den metoden jeg bruker. Om du ønsker å bruke en annen metode er det bare å gjøre det 😀 <3
Dersom du er nybegynner anbefaler jeg å lese blogginnlegget mitt om hvordan man strikker genser med rundfelling først<3 Kan leses HER.
The pattern for Alasuqkofte can be found in my book Wilderness Sweaters vol 2 .
I would like to regret in advance that the light in the pictures is so poor. I live in a house from 1939 and the windows at that time were not that big
You start by knitting the rib back and forth and when you are done, make a cutting edge. Here you cast on stitches by making loops across. I usually knit the cutting edge with purl stitches to make it easier to see where they are, but if you want to knit straight stitches, it's okay too.
When you go from straight stitch to purl stitch, it can be a little loose in the transition, so be sure to tighten a little more. In the patterns with a pattern, I usually twist the threads I do not use before and after I have knitted the wrong stitches to get all the threads over to the next round.
When do you finish knitting the cardigan. Remember to cast off the clipping masks before starting on the neck.
I usually pull out all the threads in the cutting edge so that I do not have to fasten a million threads. As a rule, I rinse the cardigan and let it dry before sewing so that I can shape it in a wet state.
Forward with the sewing machine
Det eneste du trenger å kunne er å sy frem og tilbake og du trenger ikke ha noen spesielle ferdigheter innenfor sying. Dersom du kun skal strikke denne ene koften er det ikke noe poeng i å kjøpe egen symaskin hvis du ikke allerede har en liggende, men det er en veldig god investering hvis du har planer om å strikke kofter og gensere med isydde ermer i fremtiden. En symaskin åpner opp en helt ny verden av plagg du kan lage til kjente og kjære<3
Sew two seams on each side of the cutting edge. I usually sew twice with straight stitches. I sew with straight stitches because I like to cut up before I knit the buttonholes, and therefore want as much hold as possible.
Cut between the seams
Pick up stitches
I tend to drop by Pinne 6 mm so that the button bar is nice and elastic.
Pick up masks for coating
Stuff excess threads
Sew in coating with loose stitches
Now you pick up stitches in the same way as the first button bar, but now you also have to make buttonholes evenly distributed. I have used threads to mark where my buttonholes should be.
How to knit buttonholes
The buttons I have given in the pattern are 25 mm, but here I use 22 mm. When using buttons that are 25 mm, the buttonholes are a little narrow the first few times you use the cardigan, but fold out quickly.
Sew in buttons
Tada! Now your cardigan is finished 😀
