Monday Sweater

Regular price 45,00 DKK

This knitting pattern is in English.

The Monday Sweater is worked from the top down with raglan increases to shape the yoke. The neck rib edge is folded and knitted together (to form a double neckband) and short rows are worked at the back of the neck to shape the neckline and raise the back. The sleeves are worked in the round on double-pointed needles or on a circular needle using the Magic Loop technique.

Size guide

The Monday Sweater is designed to have approx. 15-20 cm [6-8 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be approx. 15-20 cm [6-8 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 [30½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) 55-59 inches]. The measurements for the finished garment are given on the first page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S sweater has a bust circumference of 110 cm [43¼ inches], which in the given example would give you 20 cm [8 inches] of positive ease.
