Marseille Sweater Adult, Petite Knit. Knitting Pattern
This is a beautifully printed knitting pattern
Knit in a DK/8ply yarn, The Marseille Sweater is a classic jumper to add to your wardrobe. Choose to knit it with or without the stripes.
The Marseille Sweater is worked from the top down. First, the back yoke is worked back and forth, while the shoulder slope is created by working short rows for a good fit. After this, each shoulder is worked back and forth separately with short row shaping. Then, the shoulders are joined to form the front. The front and back are worked separately and joined at the bottom of the armholes, and then the body is worked in the round on a circular needle. The sleeves are worked from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the armholes and are shaped using short rows. The sleeves are worked in the round on a circular needle and double-pointed needles or using the Magic Loop technique. The neck edge is worked from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the neckline, it is then folded double and knitted together. The Marseille Sweater is worked with stripes, the placements of which are described in the pattern.
A great easy care match with Nordica superfine merino yarn.
