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.
