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.
Terrazzo Slipover is knitted from the top down. First the back is knitted, then the shoulder sections, where stitches are then picked up to knit the front piece. The back and front piece are brought together under the armhole to form the body, which is knitted in the round on circular needle and divided at the bottom with a slit on each side. Finally, elastic edges are knitted along the armhole, and the polo collar is knitted from picked up stitches along the neck opening. The stitches in the elastic are knitted twisted, so that there is a marked stitch definition.
Knit a test patch to find the stitch size that gives you the right stitch strength. Wash the sample before measuring the stickiness. If you knit with the recommended yarn, you should pay attention to the fact that this grows a little after washing - therefore it is important that you wash the swatch before measuring the knitting strength.
Terrazzo Slipover should have a range of motion ( positive ease) of approx. 13 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 own 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 slipover are given on the front of the pattern. Note that these measurements only apply if the knitting strength is maintained. Before you start knitting, measure yourself to determine which size fits 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 slipover in size S has an excess width of 103 cm and in the mentioned example will give a range of movement ( positive ease ) of 13 cm.
