Wednesday Sweater, Petite Knit. Knitting Pattern
This is a beautifully printed knitting pattern
This oversized sweater is timeless and sure to bring comfort and warmth on cold winter days.
It is worked from the top down holding two yarn together - one Aran/10ply (or bulkier 8ply) and one 2ply/lace. The Wednesday Sweater is worked from the top down - first the back is worked back and forth, while the slant of the shoulders is shaped with short rows to create a good fit. After this, each shoulder is worked separately back and forth on the circular needles. The shoulders are then joined to from the front yoke. At the underarm, the front and back are joined and the body is worked in the round on the circular needles. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up and knitted along the armholes and the sleeves are worked in the round down to the cuffs on a circular needle and double-pointed needles or with the Magic Loop technique. The large turtleneck collar is worked at the end from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the neck edge. The edges and collar are worked in twisted rib.
The sweater is designed to have approximately 25cm of ease (the finished garment to be 25cm larger than your bust circumference).
