Knitting density

16 p. X 25 p. = 10 x 10 cm, connected by the front surface with knitting needles No. 5.

Attention! Measurements were taken from the product not on the figure, but in a flattened form on the table. Since a knitted fabric is characterized by increased elasticity, special attention should be paid to matching the density of your knitting to a given one.

Next, knit another 9 (5) 7 p. no decrease and close all loops.


Knit like a back, but after the last decrease only 5 (1) 3 p. and all 45 (47) 49 p. close.

Left sleeve

For knitting needles No. 4.5, dial 41 (46) 51 p. And knit 20 p. = 8 cm with an elastic band.
In the last row (between the hem) double each loop = 80 (90) 100 p.
Go to the knitting needles No. 5 and knit, distributing the pattern loops as follows: chrome., 31 (35) 39 persons., 20 p. “Braids” A , 31 (35) 39 persons., Chrome.

In the next 4th (6th) 2nd p. close from the left edge 1 time 15 (17) 19 p., then in each 2nd p. 1 time 7 p. and 1 time 6 p. (1 time 9 p. and 1 time 8 p.) 1 time 11 p . and 1 time 10 p.

Right sleeve

Sew in sleeves (longer edge to the back).
For a golf collar, draw loops around the edge of the neck to circular knitting needles No. 4.5: along the edge of the neck of the back - 38 (40) 42 p., Along the upper edge of the left sleeve 22 (24) 26 p., Along the edge of the neck of the front 38 (40) 42 p. And along the upper edge of the right sleeve another 22 (24) 26 p. = 120 (128) 136 p. Close the row and knit in a circle 10 cm with an elastic band.
Then go on to knitting needles No. 5 and knit another 14 cm with an elastic band. With a collar height of 24 cm, loops can be freely closed as shown.
