If you want to knit the sweater longer than the pattern suggests, either on the body or the sleeves, you must go up a size.

No Dikkedarer Sweater is a simple raglan sweater with a front neckline. The fit is slightly oversized, but the wide purl edges, as well as the slightly short length, give the jumper a feminine cut. No Dikkedarer Sweater is knitted from the top down, so it is recommended to try the sweater on along the way, so that you achieve the right length of sleeves and body for you. If you want to preserve the close-fitting neckline, you can sew a thin elastic thread along the purl edge. If you want the sweater to be a little longer than the recipe suggests, choose a size larger than the one you are going to knit.

Knit a test patch to find the needle size that gives the right gauge.

Size guide

No Dikkedarer Sweater should have a range of motion (positive ease) of approximately 15 cm in relation to your chest measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL correspond to a chest measurement of approximately 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 cm. The measurements of the finished sweater are indicated on the front of the pattern (note that these measurements only apply if the knitting strength is observed). Measure yourself before you start knitting to assess your size. Example: You measure yourself with a measuring tape around the chest (or stomach if it is the widest part of your upper body) to 93 cm. This means that you should knit size M. A sweater in size M has an excess width of 108 cm and in the mentioned example will give a range of movement (positive ease) of 15 cm.

More information

Thin pure merino wool:

Extrafine merino wool is used for this yarn so that it feels soft and gentle on the skin. The yarn is spun with extra long fibers to produce a yarn that is thin and strong with a silky feel and shine. It is incredibly soft and elastic, and the threads are twisted in such a way that it gives extra strength to the yarn.

Thin glitter merino✨

The extra fine merino blend makes this yarn luxuriously soft and elastic - this can be used directly next to the skin. A little nylon is added for extra durability, and glitter for a discreet glam effect. The yarn has a mother-of-pearl effect to it, and looks and feels exclusive because it is.

Lace mohair/silk

Mohair's softness depends primarily on the quality of the fibers. Superkid mohair comes from the first sorting, and is the softest and thinnest fibers you get from the mohair goat. The second sort is usually what is called kid mohair, and is also soft, but not as soft as the superkid mohair. Superkid mohair can be used close to the skin, and provides incredibly light and airy garments. The silk gives the yarn a lovely, exclusive mother-of-pearl sheen.

Advice when knitting with hand-dyed yarn
Hand-dyed yarn, as the name suggests, is a craft, and there will be differences between skeins. This means that it is not necessarily just a matter of unraveling the yarn and starting to knit. Now, we're not going to make it more complicated than it needs to be, but there are a few things that might be good to know before you get started.

We recommend that you knit every other round from different skeins to camouflage any color differences. The more colorvariety in the yarn, the more important is this. Kimmie Munkholm shows this nicely when knitting circular in this video, and when you knit back and forth in this video.

If you don't want to knit every other round from different skeins (this is done at your own risk 😉), it is recommended to do this a few rounds when changing yarn. This applies regardless of the color of the yarn.
Wash and care of garments knitted in hand-dyed yarn
We recommend hand washing followed by a quick spin, or wool wash program if you trust your washing machine. Use ONLY detergent intended for wool/silk (Milo or such). Feel free to add a little clear vinegar - this helps preserve the colors. Do not soak the garment.

Please note that the yarn may contain excess colour. Therefore, wash separately the first time.

All knitted garments should be stored flat.
