Novice Sweater - Adult. Petite Knit. Knitting Pattern

SKU: R-T0089


This is a beautifully printed knitting pattern 

The Novice Sweater is knit seamlessly from the top down. That means that you will begin by knitting the neckband, then the yoke, then the body, and finally the sleeves. The sweater is knit in stockinette stitch, while the neckband, bottom edge (waist band), and cuffs are knit in rib.

The Novice Sweater has a round yoke, which is shaped by knitting increases on four rounds evenly separated on the yoke.

The Novice Sweater is meant to have a loose fit (positive ease) of 5-10 cm. This means that if your bust circumference is 90 cm, you should knit a size S that has a bust of 98 cm
