PetiteKnit – Weekend 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 Weekend Sweater is knitted from the top down. First, the upper part of the back is knitted back and forth with shortened rounds, so that a slope is formed on the shoulders. Next, the shoulder parts are knitted, which are then brought together at the front to knit the front piece. The front piece and the back are then joined to form the body, which is knitted in the round on a circular needle. The sleeves are worked out from picked-up sts along the sleeve opening and worked around on circular needles and double pointed needles or with Magic Loop technology. The elastic edge in the neck is knitted very last.
Knit a test patch to find the stitch size that gives you the right stitch strength.
Weekend Sweater should have a range of motion ( positive ease) of approx. 30 cm in relation to your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL correspond to a bust measurement, measured directly on the 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 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 120 cm and in the mentioned example will give a range of motion ( positive ease ) of 30 cm.
