This pattern is in English.

The Storm Sweater Man is worked from the top down in a texture pattern. First, the back yoke is worked and shaped using short rows to form the slope of the shoulders. After this, stitches are picked up and knitted for each shoulder, which are then joined to form the front yoke. The front and back yoke are joined to form the body, which is worked straight down in the round. The sleeves are worked in the round on double-pointed needles or on a circular needle using the Magic Loop technique. A rib edge is worked along the neck, folded double, and knitted down. The Storm Sweater Man is worked in a texture pattern which has four different segments.

Begin by knitting a swatch to determine which needle size will give you the correct gauge – please note that both the stitch gauge and the row gauge needs to be correct for the sweater to end up having the measurements given at the top of the pattern. The swatch can be worked using the chart in the pattern.

Size guide

The Storm Sweater Man is designed to have approx. 10-15 cm [4-6 inches] of positive ease in the smaller sizes and then gradually less positive ease in the larger sizes. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 86-91 (91-96) 96-101 (101-107) 107-113 (113-119) 119-124 (124-132) 132-144 cm [33¾-35¾ (35¾-37¾) 37¾-39¾ (39¾-42¼) 42¼-44½ (44½-46¾) 46¾-48¾ (48¾-52) 52-56¾ inches]. The measurements for the finished garment are on the front page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size to knit. For example, if you measure 99 cm [39 inches] around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size M. A size M sweater has a bust circumference of 112 cm [44 inches] which in the given example would give you 13 cm [5 inches] of positive ease.
