This sweater requires five skeins of knitting-worsted,
and four balls of Angora; electric blue for the body of
the garment, and gray Angora were combined in the model,
but other colors may be chosen at pleasure. The work is
done in plain knitting, back and forth, with ribbed belt.
With the knitting-worsted and No. 5 needles, cast on 119
stitches for the back, which will measure about twenty-four
inches, and knit 48 ribs, or 96 rows. Next row, * narrow,
knit 4; repeat from *. Then change to No. 12 steel needles
and do 20 rows in triple rib (knit 3, purl 3) for the belt.
Change to No. 5 needles and knit 20 ribs; then decrease 1
stitch at end of needle every other row five times. Knit 29
ribs plain, or without decreasing. Next row, knit 34
stitches, slip them on to a spare needle, bind off 21 stitches
for neck, and on the remaining 34 stitches, knit 4 ribs; then
cast on 30 stitches at the neck, knit 29 ribs, increase 1
stitch at armhole every other row five times, and knit 22
ribs plain. Change to the steel needles, and work the belt
as directed for the back, (purl 3, knit 3,) starting from
front edge. Having completed the belt—20 rows of triple
rib—change to No. 5 needles; * knit 4, increase 1 stitch,
repeat from *. Then knit 48 ribs and bind off on the wrong
side. Knit the other front to correspond, omitting buttonholes
if these are used.
For the sleeve: Working on right side of sweater, pick
up 1 stitch on each rib around the armhole, 72 stitches in
all; knit 8 ribs, then decrease 1 stitch at each end of needle
every 8th rib, eight times. Change to steel needles and
knit 12 ribs for the wrist; change to the larger (No. 5) needles,
* knit 4, narrow; repeat across, then knit 12 ribs, join
the Angora, knit 7 ribs, and bind off.
Collar: Using No. 5 needles and the knitting-worsted,
cast on 65 stitches; knit 28 ribs. Join the Angora wool,
knit 11 rows, increasing 1 stitch at each end of needle every
other row, and bind off. Working on right side of collar
pick up 1 stitch on each rib at the side, knit 11 rows, increasing
1 stitch every other row toward the corner and
keeping the neck edge even, and bind off. Make the other
side of collar to correspond and sew up the mitered corners.
The border of Angora wool may be as much wider as one
chooses to make it by adding more rows or ribs.
Two large buttons covered with the knitting-worsted—either
knitted or crocheted—and furnished with a loop
sewed on each side, are used to fasten the belt.
For the buttons: Using a bone hook which will carry
the yarn, make a chain of 3 stitches, turn, and in 2d stitch
of chain make 8 doubles; in next round make 2 doubles in
each stitch, working in both veins so there will be no rib;
then make 1 double in 1st stitch, 2 in next, and repeat.
Continue to work around and around until you have a circle
which will cover the button-mold—5 rounds in all were required
for top of buttons used on model, work around without
widening, slip in the mold, then * miss 1, a double in
next, and repeat until the cover is closed. If preferred,
knit a tiny square as you did the body of the garment; and
use this to cover the mold, drawing it snugly over, and
fastening underneath. For the loop, make a chain of 30
stitches, turn and make a double in each stitch; fasten securely
beneath the button.
