PetiteKnit – Stockholm 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.
Stockholm sweater is knitted from top to bottom in stockinette stitch double thread silk/mohair. First, the upper part of the back is knitted, then stitches are picked up along the lining edge of the back to the shoulders. The shoulders are knitted separately with shortened rounds, so that a wedge is created. Front and back pieces are brought together under the armhole, and the body is knitted in the round on circular needle. Along the armholes stitches are picked up for sleeves, which are knitted around on double pointed needles or with Magic Loop. Finally, stitches are picked up along the neckline, where an elastic edge is knitted which is finally folded and sewn on the wrong side. Stockholm shirt is assembly-free with the exception of the folding of the neckline.
