PetiteKnit – April Cardigan
This is a printed pattern in Swedish. The pattern is only sent if you buy at least 2 balls of yarn at the same time. We reserve the right to cancel orders that do not comply with this.
The April Cardigan has a V-neckline and is knitted from the top down. The yoke is constructed in such a way that shoulder increases are first knitted on the right and wrong side. Then armhole increases are knitted, and finally a piece with raglan increases is knitted. Simultaneously with this, increases are knitted along the front edges, so that the V-neckline is formed. The sleeves are knitted in the round on double pointed needles or with Magic Loop technology. Finally, stitches are picked up along the front edges, at the shoulders and at the neck, and a button placket is knitted in elastic. Knit a test patch to find the stitch size that gives you the right stitch strength.
April Cardigan should have a range of motion ( positive ease) of approx. 6-8 cm in relation to your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL correspond to a bust measurement, measured on your body, of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110- 120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm. The measurements of the finished cardigan are indicated on the front of the pattern (note that these measurements only apply if the knit strength is correct). Before you start knitting, measure yourself to determine which size fits you best. If you e.g. Measuring 90 cm around the bust (or the widest part of your body), you should knit a size S. A cardigan in size S has an overall width of 97 cm and in the mentioned example will give a range of movement ( positive ease ) of 7 cm
Sizes: XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL

Stick strength: 21 stitches x 28 rounds in stocking stitch on needles 4 mm = 10 x 10 cm after washing and blocking
Knitting suggestions: Circular needle 4 mm (60 and 80 and/or 100 cm), circular needle 3 mm (80 or 100 cm), circular needle 3.5 mm (80 or 100 cm), double pointed needles 3.5 and 4 mm
Material: 200 (200-250) 250 (250) 250-300 (300) 300 (350) 350 g Sunday from Sandnes Garn (50 g = 235 m) together with 100 (100-125) 125 (125) 125-150 (150) 150 (175) 175 g Thin Silk Mohair from Sandnes Garn (25 g = 212 m) or Silk Mohair from Isager Yarn (25 g = 212 m) or Kid Seta from Gepard yarn (25 g = 210 m), 4 buttons (ø = 20-23 mm)
Knitting without mohair? Feel free to exchange a thread of silk mohair for Alpaca 1 from Isager (50 g = 400 m), Alpaca trail thread from Sandnes (50 g = 400 m) or Alva from Filcolana (25 g = 175 m). Then count so that you have the same number of meters as the original yarn. So if you need 125 grams of silk mohair (let's count on 210 meters for the sake of simplicity) you need 5x210 meters = 1050 meters. It corresponds to 3 skeins of Alpaca 1 or Alpakka twine, or 6 skeins of Alva.
