Yarn package for the Wednesday Sweater from PetiteKnit. With this yarn option, the jumper is knitted in 1 thread Pure untreated merino wool together with 1 thread Lace mohair/silk. Unfortunately, we do not have the rights to sell the recipe, 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 must go up a size.
The Wednesday Sweater is knitted from the top down. First, the upper part of the back piece is knitted back and forth, and the slope of the shoulders is shaped with pins for a good fit. The shoulders are then knitted back and forth on circular needle. These are gathered at the front to form the front piece. Front piece and back piece are then gathered to form the body, and it is knitted in the round on circular needle. The sleeves are knitted from picked-up stitches along the sleeve opening and knitted in the round on circular needles and double pointed needles or withMagic Loop-technique. The neck's large polo collar is finally knitted from picked up stitches, and a purl is worked with twisted stitches.
Knit a test piece to find the needle size that gives you the right gauge.
Wednesday Sweater should have a range of motion (positive ease)of approx. 25 cm in relation to your chest measurement. The fit is oversized. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL correspond to a chest measurement measured on your own body of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) ) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm. The measurements of the finished sweater are indicated on the front of the pattern. Measure yourself before you start knitting, to assess which size will suit you best. If you e.g. measures 90 cm around the chest (or the widest part of your torso), you should knit size S. A sweater in size S has an excess width of 115 cm and in the mentioned example will provide a range of movement (positive ease) of 25 cm.

Pure untreated 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 flexible 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.
100% extra fine merino wool
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.
The yarn is thin, so it is very suitable as a companion thread for e.g. many of PetiteKnit's designs. This yarn is well suited for ego knitting and children's knitting.
75% superkid mohair/25% mulberry silk
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.
