Pull Isa - English Version Part II {Knitting}

Wednesday, 26 June 2013

Here is the second part of the translation - you can find the first part here. It took me a while to understand what I was supposed to do. So here is the translation of the French version - again this does not include my own changes or the interpretation of the pattern that I made - this will come later. 

The knit will now be separated into 2. You will knit the front first, leaving the stitches for the back on a stitch holder.

Worked on straight needles, so pay attention to even rows that are worked in reverse.

Front knit

You will need to understand the confetti stitch to make sure that the mesh pattern remains, as well as the middle twist. The front knit is now on 96 stitches.

Knit 2 rows ensuring the confetti stitch and the twist continue, and knitting 3 stitches at the beginning and end of row (small jersey stripes).

We will now create the neckline, as well as both sides of the neckline by knitting the sides separately:
k41 (following the confetti stitch), bind off the next 14 stitches, k41 (following the confetti stitch)
Knit the right side of the neckline, decreasing every other row: 2 stitches twice and 1 stitch twice.
You have 35 stitches on the needle. Continue to knit the side straight until it is 16cm from the end of the armhole increases.
Knit 2 rows in stockinette.
Put stitches on a stitch holder.

Knit the other side of the neck facing and also put 35 shoulder stitches on a stitch holder.

Upper back:

4 stitches at the beginning and at the end of the row are knitted in stockinette. 

You need to knit for 12 cm from the end of the armhole increases - respecting the confetti stitch.

You will now knit the back neckline. Next row:
k35 following the confetti stitch pattern, bind off the following 20 stitches, k35 following the confetti stitch pattern. 
Make a decrease every other row decreasing first of 2 stitches and of 1 stitch.
Knit one side of the neck back, continuing with the remaining stitches and following the confetti stitch pattern - up to 16 cm from the end of the armhole increases. 
Work 2 rows in stockinette.

Assemble one shoulder using the grafting method.

Knit the other side of the back neckline and grafting the shoulder as with the other side.

Part III will be the sleeves. 


  1. The st detailing is so texturized. It's an eye-catchy piece.

  2. Beautiful top. I also love the look of all that texture!
