The September Sweater is knitted from top to bottom in stockinette stitch. First, the back is knitted, casting up stitches for the neck and knitting back and forth on the needle with increases on each side. After this, stitches are gathered up to the shoulders, which are knitted separately and then gathered at the front for the front piece. Under the armhole, the back piece and the front piece meet to form the body, which is knitted in the round on circular needle. Stitches are then picked up for sleeves, which are knitted in the round with increases on a short circular needle. Finally, stitches are picked up in the neck opening to knit the ribbed edge of the neck from. This is placed double and knitted down. The September Sweater is therefore assembly-free.

Make a knitting test before you start to find the needle size that gives you the right knitting strength. Be aware that it is difficult to measure on patent knit, as it is elastic - therefore measure all distances several times.

Size guide

The September Sweater should have a range of motion ( positive ease) of approx. 15 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 given on the front of the pattern. Measure yourself before you start knitting to determine which size will fit you best. For example, if you measure 97 cm around the chest (or the widest part of your body), you should knit a size L. A sweater in size L has an excess width of 113 cm and, in the example mentioned, will provide a room for movement ( positive ease ) of 16 cm.

The model in the picture wears a size XS and has a chest measurement of 82 cm and is 164 cm tall.

Note that patent knit will expand slightly in width when washed and in use. Therefore, you can count on your September Sweater to grow approximately 5-8 cm in excess compared to the measurements indicated on the front of the recipe.
