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.
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.

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.

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.
