Work with one strand of each yarn held together throughout
Garter stitch with one strand of each yarn on 4.5mm needles: 10cm = 18 sts, 10cm = 36 rows
Brioche with one strand of each yarn on 4mm needles (not stretched): 10cm = 18 sts, 10cm = 44 rows
K1-P1 with one strand of each yarn rib on 3.5mm needles (not stretched): 10cm = 30 sts, 10cm = 32 rows
3.5mm, 4mm, and 4.5mm
Note: The given needle sizes are for working back and forth. When working in the round it will probably be necessary to go up half a needle size.
Note: Needles are recommended, so please check your tension for your ideal needle size before starting your project.
Windy's front and back are both worked back and forth in garter ridges. Increase are made at sides and shoulders are shaped using short rows. Front and back are knitted together with a brioche shoulder piece and when shoulders have been joined in this way, stitches for sleeves are picked up and knitted along armhole edges and sleeves are worked top down, still in brioche. Sleeves and collar are finished with tubular cast off.
