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 Friday Sweater Mini is knitted top down in pearl elastic with raglan increases. The neck edge is knitted in elastic and knitted down. Sleeves and torso are finished with an elastic edge.
Knit a test piece before you start. Remember to wash the sample patch before measuring the stitch strength - pearl elastic grows after washing.
Friday Sweater Mini should have a range of motion ( positive ease) of approx. 10-13 cm in relation to the child's bust measurement. The measurements of the finished sweater are given on the front of the pattern. Before you start knitting, measure the child to determine which size fits best. If the child e.g. measures 63 cm around the chest, you should knit a size 5-6 years. A sweater in size 5-6 years has an excess width of 74 cm and in the mentioned example will give a range of motion ( positive ease ) of 11 cm.
