Yarn kit for Marble Sweater from PetiteKnit. We have put together the following yarn option:
- 1 strand Chunky Merino Blend together with 1 strand Chunky mohair/alpaca
Unfortunately, we do not have the rights to sell the pattern but you can find it here:
If you want to knit the sweater longer than the pattern suggests, either on the body or the sleeves, you’ll need to choose a larger size.
Marble Sweater is worked from the top down with raglan increases on the yoke. The neck edge is knitted together, and short rows are worked along the back of the neck to shape the neckline.
Marble Sweater is designed to have approx. 20 cm [8 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be approx. 20 cm [8 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 [30½-33½ (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 (note that these measurements only apply if the correct gauge is maintained). Before beginning your project, measure yourself with a measuring tape around your bust (or your widest upper body part) to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S sweater has a bust circumference of 109 cm [43 inches] which in the given example would give you 19 cm [7½ inches] of positive ease.

This is truly an exclusive and luxurious Italian yarn. It mainly consists of the finest kid mohair and super fine alpaca, only held together by a little wool andlittle bitnylon. The garments knitted from this yarn are wonderfully light and soft, and warm very well in relation to their weight.
Mohair's ability to retain heat is approximately twice that of wool. This yarn produces thick, but at the same time light garments, with a lovely halo effect. It can be usefully knitted on thick needles (5 mm and up).

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.
Please note that the yarn may contain excess colour. Therefore, wash separately the first time.
All knitted garments should be stored flat.
