Lykle Twisted Neck

oppskrift sjal
Finally I have translated the pattern for the english speaking visitors :)

 My grandma taught me an old Swedish knittingmethod which I used for `Lykle Twisted Neck`.
The neck is knit back and forth as a square. And then joined with a twist.

4 skeins: Permin Safira or other Aran yarn of your choice.
Circular needles: 8mm/US11 and 6mm/US10
Tapestry needle or crochet hook

Finished circumference: approx. 88cm
Length: approx. 38cm

SSP: slip stich purlwise
K2tog: knit 2 stiches together
YO: yarn over
K1: knit one stich

The cast on is done in 4 rounds. In lack of a larger needle I used a double needle (8mm/ US11) for the first round. *always slip the first stich as if to purl, so that the work will have a nice chain-edge.*

ROW 1: Cast on 51 stiches
Switch to 6mm/US10 circular needle
ROW 2: slip the first stich as if to purl. // YO, K1. Repeat from //
ROW 3: slip the first stich as if to purl // SSP, YO, K1. Repeat from //
ROW 4: slip the first stich as if to purl // SSP, YO, K2tog. Repeat from //
Repeat ROW 4 until work measures 38cm or your desired length.

Cast of is done in two rounds
First round of cast of: slip the first stich as if to purl // SSP, K2tog. Repeat from //
Final cast of: cast of using your preferred method. Be sure to knit all stiches, and not to tight so that you will get a nice edge

You should now have a rectangular piece. Twist the work once and place the short sides of the work together. Join using your preferred method. I crocheted the sides together but I am sure there are better ways to do it.

Please let me know if you find any errors in the translation.
Good luck!

SSP: slip stich purlwise 
YO: yarn over

K2tog: knit 2 stitches together

  1. Lekkert sjal!
    Imponert over at du har oversatt oppskriften til engelsk...

    Tusen takk for koselige kommentarer!


  2. Så utrolig flott!! :)

    Ja, det er det jeg har hørt ihvertfall - ang marihøne og roselus.. kanskje jeg har hørt feil ;) ops!

  3. this is a lovely stitch pattern; I am looking through my cupboard of yarn, and found a lovely silk blend that would make a very pretty cowl for my daughter. T

    Thanks for this pattern!

  4. I also thank you very much for taking the time and trouble to translate this for your English-speaking knitters. I liked the look of the blue variegated one you showed first, and hoped another version would be made available.

    Tusen takk, from me also.


Tusen takk for at du legg igjen nokre ord til meg :) eg måtte dessverre stenge for anonyme komentarar då det kom mykje spam-komentarar.
Nyt dagen :)
