PetiteKnit Knitting Patterns 10ply / Worsted / Aran Knit-in-the-round Mens Multi sized Sweaters Top-down Construction Two Yarns Held Together


Product Information

The Northland Sweater is worked from the top down. The first part of the yoke is worked back and forth on a circular needle to shape the neckline, then the work is joined to continue knitting in the round. The construction of the yoke begins with shoulder increases on both right side and wrong side rows, continues with sleeve increases and ends with classic raglan increases. The rib edge at the neck is worked at the end from stitches that are picked up. The sleeves are worked in the round on double-pointed needles or on a long circular needle using the Magic Loop technique. The Northland Sweater is worked seamlessly and requires no finishing other than weaving in ends. 

Size Guide: The Northland Sweater is designed to have approx. 10cm of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 10cm larger in circumference than the recipient's chest measurement for ease of movement and for wearing over other clothing.
