PetiteKnit – No frills sweater
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 Inga Krusiduller Sweater is a simple raglan sweater with a deeper neckline at the front. The fit is slightly oversized, but the wide elastic edges and the slightly shorter length give the sweater a feminine cut. Inga Krusiduller Sweater is knitted from the top down, so it is recommended that the sweater is tried on in the meantime, so that you can adjust to the length of the sleeves and body that suit you. If you want to preserve the tight neckline, you can sew in a thin elastic thread along the elastic edge.
Make a sample to find the stitch size that gives the right stitch strength.
Inga Krusiduller Sweater should have a range of movement ( positive ease ) of around 15 cm in relation to your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL correspond to a bust measurement of around 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 cm. The measurements of the finished sweater are indicated on the front of the pattern (note that these measurements only apply if the knit strength is maintained). Before you start knitting, measure yourself to determine which size to choose. Example: You measure yourself with a measuring tape around the chest (or stomach, if it is the widest part of your body) to 93 cm. This means that you should knit a size M. A shirt in size M has a width of 108 cm and in the mentioned example will give a range of motion ( positive ease ) of 15 cm.
Sizes: XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL

Center back length: 52 (54) 55 (56) 58 (60) 62 cm
Stick strength: 21 stitches x 28 rounds in stockinette stitch on needles 4 mm = 10 x 10 cm
Knitting suggestions: Circular needle 3 mm and 4 mm (40 cm and 80 or 100 cm), double pointed needles 3 mm and 4 mm
Yarn: 250 (250) 300 (300) 350 (350) 350-400 g Sunday from Sandnes Garn (50 g = 235 m) together with 125 (125) 150 (150) 175 (175) 175-200 g Tilia from Filcolana (Mustard 136) or Silk Mohair from Isager (25 g = 212 m) or Thin Silk Mohair from Sandnes Garn (25 g = 212 m) or Kid Seta from Gepard.
Knitting without mohair? Feel free to replace a thread of silk mohair with Alpaca 1 from Isager (50 g = 400 m), Alpakka trailing 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.
