Unikkotee – pattern in English

(Suomenkielisen ohjeen löydät täältä)

We all love Marimekko and unikko, right? So here is the pattern for #unikkotee – for free and now in English!

PATTERN

KNITTING GAUGE & MATERIALS: 22 stitches x 26 rows = 10 x 10 cm = 4” x 4”. Use any yarn that has this knitting gauge. The yarn I used was Woolblend yarn from the shop Søstrene Grene (50 g = 125 m).
You need 300-300-350-350 g orange and 200-200-250-250 g white yarn.

SIZE: S-M-L-XL. Measurements in the chart below are in cm.

NEEDLES: Make the needle choice depending on the yarn you choose and your personal knitting tension. I used circular needles size 2,5 mm (US 1,5) and 3 mm (US 2,5), length 80 cm = 32”. If you want, you can also use double pointed needles for the sleeves.


Body

Work from the bottom up, and up to armholes. Then divide the piece and finish each part separately.

Cast on 260-290-318-346 stitches on circular needle size 2,5 mm (US 1,5) with the orange yarn. Work rib (= knit 1/purl 1) for six rounds.

Switch to circular size 3 mm US 2,5). Knit one round with orange. AT THE SAME TIME decrease 44-50-54-58 stitches evenly –> 216-240-264-288 stitches.

Start to work by the knitting chart (download below) with orange and white. I recommend to use invisible stranding.

Make the pattern in the chart on both sides of the work. Make the armhole casting offs according to the chart. Work back piece and front pieces back and forth separately from there.

On front piece make casting offs for neck according to the black lines and on the back piece following the gray edge. When you have knitted the pattern till the end, cast off.

Sleeves

Work sleeves in the round on circular needle or double pointed needles. Cast on 104-110-118-130 stitches on needles size 2,5 mm (US 1,5). Work rib (= knit 1/purl 1) for six rounds. Then switch to circular size 3 mm (US 2,5). Knit one round with orange. AT THE SAME TIME decrease 16-16-18-20 stitches evenly –> 88-94-100-110 stitches.

Start to work by the knitting chart with orange and white. I recommend to use invisible stranding. When you have knitted the pattern till the end, cast off.

Neck

Use circular needle size 2,5 (US 1,5). Knit up from the right side about 110-118-122-126 stitches around the neck (should be divisible by 2). Work rib (= knit 1/purl 1) for six rounds. Cast off.

Assembly

Sew the shoulder seams. Sew in sleeves.
