Knitting for Olive - Late Summer Wrap - Knitting Kit

Designed by Pernille Larsen - Knitting for Olive

Late Summer Wrap is a classic and elegant wrap cardigan designed to be worn over dresses or high-waisted jeans on chilly summer evenings. It is worked with 1 strand of Merino and 1 strand of Soft Silk Mohair held together throughout – a soft combination that will also keep you warm during winter.

The Kit Includes
  • Yarn (Knitting for Olive Merino & Soft Silk Mohair) in your selected size & colour
  • Office Printed Pattern in English
  • 3mm circular and double pointed needles (optional add on)

Late Summer Wrap is worked back and forth in stockinette stitch from the top down. You start with Provisional cast-on for the back neckband and afterwards, pick up additional stitches and shape the saddle shoulders, sleeve cap and fronts. Work is divided at underarms, and sleeve stitches placed on hold to be worked after the body has been completed. Body is continued back and forth with additional front shaping and then finished with a sideways bottom band, attached ties and an opening in one side for one of the ties. Sleeves are worked top down in the round in stockinette stitch and finished with a folded edge. The length of the ties, body and sleeves can easily be adjusted. Late Summer Wrap is intended to be fitted and is therefore designed with negative ease of approx. 0-8 cm [0-3¼”]. To choose the correct size, look at the ‘to fit chest circumference’ measurements on the previous page. If your actual chest circumference is, say, 98 cm [38½”], you should choose to knit a size M in order to achieve the intended fit.
