If a shirt, blouse or long sleeve shirt is just a little too warm, an extra jacket or a jumper is too much of a good thing, then the tank top comes into play. A sweater, so to speak, the sweater without arm, is not rocket science even for knitting novices.

Knitted with soft, cuddly wool, the pullover or tank top becomes a pleasant, comforting lightweight. So knitting is great fun and wearing it becomes a real pleasure.

knitting instructions

The detailed instructions are designed for the knit size S = width 45 cm, length of the sweater = 55 cm .

Mesh sizes M, L, XL can be found in the table below. The manual is suitable for both ladies' and men's sweaters.

The sweater, tank top is knitted in two parts (back and front). On the right and left edge, a panel is knitted in each case, which acts as a border for the armhole. Also on the neckline (V-neck), the aperture is integrated directly into the knitting pattern.

Edge stitch: Do not knit the edge stitch at the end of the row, just lift off and knit at the beginning of the next row.

color scheme

There are a total of 3 color blocks (wool color 1, color 2 and color 3), which overflow into each other in a striped area:

Lower area

  • 4 rows of kraus right + 34 rows of smooth right (wool 1)
  • 2 rows smooth right (wool 2), 2 rows smooth right (wool 1)
  • 2 rows smooth right (wool 2), 2 rows smooth right (wool 1
  • 2 rows smooth right (wool 2), 2 rows smooth right (wool 1)
  • 2 rows smooth right (wool 2), 2 rows smooth right (wool 1)
  • 18 rows smooth right (wool 2)

upper area

  • 44 rows smooth right with arm or neckline (wool 3)
  • Main pattern: In the main area, the sweater, tank top is knit smooth right (= front right stitch, back left stitch)
  • Aperture pattern: The iris appears curled right (= front and back right stitches).

Knit back

Knit 1 row of 68 stitches with wool no. 1 and knit 4 rows as a cuff (kirtus right = knit front and back right).

From now on knit in the main pattern with iris until the beginning of the armhole. For this, row 1 and row 2 are always repeated:

Row 1: edge stitch - right stitches - edge stitch

Row 2: edge stitch - 3 right stitches - left stitches - 3 right stitches - edge stitch

Knitting the tank top in the lower area without increments or increments according to the color scheme described above.

With the upper area begin the decreases for the armholes. For this purpose, stitches are taken from left and right in the front row. The mesh decrease occurs within the aperture. Knitting the edge stitch as well as the aperture stitches at the beginning of the row as usual, then take the decreases - as indicated and described below - knit the middle row area as usual, before the panel done - as indicated and described below - the decreases in the left Finally, embroider the aperture stitches and the edge stitch as usual.

  • Take off 3 stitches on one side : lift one stitch off to the right, knit two stitches together on the right side and pull the previously removed stitch over the resulting stitch (photos .39, 42, 43, 44)
1 of 4
  • Slip over 2 stitches: Take off one stitch on the right side, knit one stitch on the right and pull the previously lifted stitch over the stitched stitch
  • Knitting 3 stitches on the right: Instead of just putting 1 stitch on the needle, stitch through 3 stitches and knit these 3 stitches together.
  • Knit 2 stitches on the right side: instead of just putting 1 stitch on the needle, stitch through 2 stitches and knit these 2 stitches together.

Decreases for the armholes in each front row:

  • 1 x right and left 2 stitches each
  • 6 x right and left each 1 stitch

The decreases on the right side are made by a covered decrease and the decreases on the left side by the knitting of several stitches:

  • Decrease row 1 (front): knit edge stitch, knit 3 stitches on the right, remove 3 sts, knit stitches on the right, knit 3 stitches on the right, knit 3 stitches on the right, edge stitch = 64 stitches
  • Knitting the back without removing : edge stitch, 3 right stitches, left stitches, 3 right stitches, edge stitch
  • Decrease row 2 (front side): knit edge stitch, knit 3 sts on the right, remove 2 sts, knit stitches on the right, knit 2 stitches on the right, knit 3 stitches on the right, edge stitch = 62 stitches
  • Knit the back again without removing : edge stitch, 3 right stitches, left stitches, 3 right stitches, edge stitch

Repeat the Decrease Series 2 and the backside a total of five more times = 52 stitches.

Knitting the next rows straight up.

Bind off neckline

It often happens that the acceptance edge has a very irregular mesh pattern at the neckline. If you follow this abrading tip, you will get a nice edge:

Just lift off the last stitch of the back row as you would normally do with the edge stitch and turn the work to the take-off side. Now lift the first two stitches on the right needle and pull the stitch on the right over the stitch on the left. If you need to make more declines in the row, knit a second stitch and lift the first stitch over the second stitch. If no declines need to be made, you can finish the row as usual.

Neckline on the back

Begin after approx. 18 cm (= 40 rows) from the first row of the armhole to dec for the rear neckline. First knit 19 stitches to the right and chain the middle 14 stitches. Over the remaining 19 stitches, knit the row to the right. (The 19 stitches on the right side are first shut down.) It is knitted on the left neckline: The back row leads back to the binding edge (edge ​​stitch, 3 stitches on the right, left stitches on the left, edge stitch).

Apply the work and chain 2 stitches in the next front row. Knitt the back row again without losing weight and chain 1 row again in the next row. There are 16 shoulder stitches left. These are also chained off in the next front row.

Now work the right rear neckline and the right shoulder: The stitches are now chained on the back. First, thread a new thread through the first binding stitch, creating a new stitch and no hole when continuing to knit. Raise another stitch on the right needle, knit one stitch on the left and pull the first two stitches together loosely over the straight stitched stitch. The first stitch is chained off. Unlock a second stitch (1 stitch on the left and pull the right stitch over this stitch.

Now the back row is finished and the work turned over. Knitt the front row as usual. (You still have 17 stitches on the needle). Unwrap a stitch on the back, finish the back row, knit another row on the front, and finally chain the remaining 16 stitches (knit off the left stitches before they are chipped off).

Knit front piece

Start the front piece in the same way as the back piece: Cast on 68 stitches and knit 4 rows on the crotch. Then continue in the main pattern with aperture right and left. Color change according to the color scheme as in the back part.

For the armholes, work the following decreases:

  • 2 x right and left 2 stitches (Attention: here a decrease more than at the back)
  • 6 x right and left each 1 stitch

At the same time as the armholes are taken off, the area for the V-neck begins. The work is divided into two and worked first the left side. Knitt the same trim on both insides as you already run on the outside of the row (1 edge stitch, 3 stitches on the right). On the middle 4 stitches, the cutout aperture overlaps first.

For neckline work, work on the left and right side as follows:

  • 11 x 1 stitch in every 2nd front row

Exact description of the decreases

  • Row 1 (front side): Knit edge stitch, 3 stitches on the right, remove 3 stitches, knit right stitches, knit 3 stitches on the right, knit 3 stitches on the right, edge stitch = 64 stitches
  • Row 2 (back side): edge stitch, 3 right stitches, 26 left stitches, 3 right stitches, 1 edge stitch (lock down remaining 30 stitches of this row).
  • Row 3 (front left): 1 edge stitch, 3 right stitches, 2 stitches covered, remove right stitches, knit 3 stitches on the right, 3 stitches on the right, 1 edge stitch.

Row 4 and all other reverse rows are knitted without declines.

Remove further stitches according to this pattern (armholes on each front row, neckline on every other front row). After 44 rows, 16 stitches remain on the needle. Chain this off in the next front row.

Now work the right side of the neckline against the same. First, take 4 stitches on the inside of the neckline and knit a back row with the stitches off.

ATTENTION: The declines on the right side always work through covered declines and the declines on the left side by knitting the stitches together!

Completion - Close the shoulder and side seams (the side seam runs from the bottom edge to the beginning of the armhole) and sew the threads.
