PetiteKnit Weekend Sweater - Knitting Kit

The Weekend Sweater is worked from the top down. First, the back yoke is worked back and forth with the shoulder slope shaped using short rows. Then, each shoulder is worked separately and joined to form the front yoke. Front and back yoke are then joined to form the body, which is worked in the round on a circular needle to the hem. 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 ribbed neck edge are worked at the end.

Begin by working a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge.

Size guide

The Weekend Sweater is designed to have approx. 30 cm [11¾ inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 30 cm [inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm [31½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) 55-59 inches]. 

The measurements for the finished garment are on the front page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size to knit. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S sweater has a bust circumference of 120 cm [47 inches], which in the given example would give you 30 cm [11¾ inches] of positive ease.
