PetiteKnit – Zipper sweater - Men
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.
Zipper Sweater - Man is knitted from top to bottom in one piece. The neck edge is knitted in elastic, which is folded double and knitted down. The yoke is knitted with raglan increases, first back and forth on circular needle to make room for the zipper, and then around on circular needle. Body and sleeves are knitted in the round. Finally, a lining for the zipper is knitted out of resting stitches, so that the zipper looks nice even from the back when it is sewn on. The zipper is finally assembled by sewing it in between the two layers of knitted fabric - by hand or by machine.
Knit a test patch to find the stitch size that gives you the right stitch strength.
Zipper Sweater – You should have a range of motion ( positive ease) of approx. 20 cm in relation to your/the recipient's bust measurement. The fit is oversized. If you want a less oversize expression, you can go down a size. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) correspond to a bust measurement of 86-91 (91-96) 96-101 (101-107) 107-113 (113-119) 119-124 (124 -132) cm. The measurements of the finished sweater are given on the front of the pattern. Measure yourself/the recipient, before you start knitting, to determine which size fits best. If you/the recipient e.g. measures 103 cm around the bust (or the widest part of the body), you should knit a size L. A sweater in size L has an overall width of 125 cm and in the mentioned example will give a range of motion ( positive ease ) of 22 cm. If a smaller oversize fit is desired, you can knit size M and then achieve a range of motion of 16 cm.
