THIS IS A PRINTED PATTERN.

The Stockholm Sweater is knit from the top down in stockinette stitch with two strands of silk/mohair lace weight yarn held together. You begin by working the top of the back flat, after which stitches are picked up along the cast on edge for the shoulders. Each shoulder is knit separately and shaped using short rows, so they slope neatly. The front and back of the sweater are joined under the armholes, thereafter the body is knit in the round. For the sleeves, stitches are picked up along the armholes, and then knit in the round to the cuff on DPNs or a circular needle using Magic Loop. Finally stitches are picked up along the neck opening, and a ribbed collar is knit, folded over, and sewn down on the wrong side. The Stockholm Sweater requires no other finishing than sewing down the neckband.

Please knit and wet block a gauge swatch before starting to find the right needle size that gives you the required gauge.

Size guide: The Stockholm Sweater is designed to have approx. 15 cm [6 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 15 cm [6 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm [31½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) 55-59 inches].

The measurements for the finished garment can be found on the front page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size to knit. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S sweater has a bust circumference of 105 cm [41¼ inches], which in the given example would give you 15 cm [6 inches] of positive ease.
