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 Jenny Sweater is knitted in the round from the bottom up in smock knitting with raglan decreases. The body and sleeves are knitted separately, after which they are joined together on the same circular needle when the yoke is to be knitted. The neck is worked back and forth on the needle, and the neckline is formed by working it continuously with stitches. The neck edge is finally knitted from the picked up stitches.
Knit a test patch to check your stitch strength before you start.
Jenny Sweater should have a range of motion ( positive ease) of approx. 19 cm in relation to your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) correspond to a bust measurement, measured on the body, of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) cm. The measurements of the finished sweater are given on the front of the pattern. Measure yourself before you start knitting, to determine which size will fit you best. If you e.g. measures 90 cm around the bust (or the widest part of your body), you should knit a size S. A sweater in size S has an overall width of 109 cm and in the mentioned example will give a range of motion ( positive ease ) of 19 cm. If you are between two sizes, it is recommended to choose the smallest size as smock knitting will stretch with use.
