PetiteKnit Knitting Patterns Fingering / 4Ply Fluffy Knit-in-the-round Sweaters Top-down Construction Two Yarns Held Together

Product Information

No Frills Sweater is a simple raglan sweater with neckline shaping at the front and is knitted with two strands of yarn held together throughout for a soft and fluffy feelThe fit is slightly oversized, but the wide rib edges and the shorter length give the sweater a feminine silhouette. The No Frills Sweater is worked from the top down, which makes it easy to try it on along the way, so you can customize it to fit your body and end up with the perfect sleeve and body length for you. If you want to make sure that the rib neck edge keeps it shape over time, you can sew a thin elastic thread along the edge.

Size Guide: The No Frills Sweater is designed to have approx. 15cm of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 15cm larger in circumference than your chest measurement to ensure comfort and enable you to wear clothing underneath the sweater.

Before beginning your project, measure yourself with a measuring tape around your bust (or your widest upper body part) to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 93cm around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size M. A size M sweater has a bust circumference of 108cm, which in the given example would give you 15cm of positive ease.

Gauge: 21 stitches x 28 rows = 10 x 10cm in stocking stitch on 4mm needles with 2 strands of yarn held together, after blocking.

Suggested needles: Circular needles: 3mm and 4mm / 40 and 80cm or 100cm needles; Double-pointed needles: 3mm and 4mm needles, unless using the Magic loop method on the sleeves.
