Curious about something else than traditional bottom up or top down knitting? Want to play around a bit with the garment construction?
Vinkel is an easy and fun garment that will keep your interest – diagonal garter stitch and basic shaping takes you from the front edge, across the shoulders and down again, finished off with some easy seaming along the back and sides.
It’s highly recommended by the ones who tested this pattern to knit both sides of the garment at once, to make sure you work the same number of rows on each side. If you haven’t tried this technique before – what are you waiting for?
Note: Chest measurement isn’t critical, since the garment is very stretchy.
