Yarn package for Weekend Sweater from PetiteKnit. With this yarn option, the sweater is knitted in 1 thread Pure 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 Weekend Sweater is knitted from the top down. First, the upper part of the back piece is knitted back and forth, as the slope of the shoulders is shaped with shortened needles (turning needles). Next, the shoulders are knitted, which are gathered at the front to form the front piece. The front piece and the back piece are then gathered to form the bodice, and it is worked around on the circular needle. The sleeves are worked from picked up sts along the sleeve opening and worked in the round on circular needles and double pointed needles or withMagic Look-technique. The purl edge in the neck is worked at the end.
Knit a test piece to find the needle size that gives you the right gauge.
The Weekend Sweater should have a range of motion (positive ease)of approx. 30 cm in relation to your chest measurement. 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 upper body), you should knit a size S. A sweater in size S has an excess width of 120 cm and in the mentioned example will provide a range of movement (positive ease) of 30 cm.

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 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% extrafine merino wool, superwash treated
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
