Ingrid Sweater Man

Regular price 50,00 DKK
Please select a language first

The Ingrid Sweater Man is worked from the top down in a knit and purl texture pattern. First, the back yoke is worked back and forth and the sloping shoulders are shaped using short rows. Then stitches are picked up and knitted for the shoulder sections, which are worked separately and then joined to form the front yoke. The front and back yoke are joined at the underarms to form the body, which is worked straight down in the round. The sleeves are knitted in the round from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the armholes. A rib neck edge is worked, folded double and knitted together. The Ingrid Sweater Man is worked in a texture pattern, which consists of three different pattern sections.

Begin by knitting a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge before starting the project – note that the gauge needs to be correct both in width and height, for you to be able to achieve the measurements given at the top of the pattern.
