Cardamom Neck - English
The neckwarmer is worked from the back towards the front-part. Stitches are cast on with Italian cast-on and worked in twisted rib. Afterwards the back-piece is worked in double broken rib until it is finished. Stitches are closed off to part the back-piece in two shoulder pieces. The shoulders are worked separately, with increases to create the neckline. The shoulder-pieces are joined to create the front piece. The front piece is worked in double broken rib with decreases and finished with a twisted rib edge and an Italian cast-off. Finally, stitches are picked up along the edge of the neck and worked in twisted rib. The neckline is finished with double knit and italiansk cast-off.
