Marseille Sweater Junior, Petite Knit. Knitting Pattern

SKU: T0157


This is a beautifully printed knitting pattern 

Knit in a DK/8ply yarn, The Marseille Sweater Junior is a classic jumper with plenty of ease to see your little people through many winter adventures. 

The 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.
