Amburgo is a sweater pattern that is dedicated to the lovely city of Hamburg and especially to Wollfest Hamburg 2016 which is held from 3rd to 4th September.
The T-shaped ribbing symbolizes one of the huge container cranes in the harbor of Hamburg which was officially opened as early as 1189 and is the largest harbor in Germany, number two in Europe and number 14 in the World.

The blue yarn with undyed linen content reflects the water with its waves when a ship goes by. The sweater has a special construction started in the middle of a square on the back and the deepest point of the V-neck on the front. It is worked seamlessly and features a rounded hem which is shorter on the front than on the back. All hems are bound off with a contrasting colored yarn.

XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL) with finished bust size 82 (92, 102, 112, 122, 132) cm/ 32 ¼” (36 ¼”, 40 ½”, 44”, 48”, 52”)
Recommended ease: 5-15 cm/ 2-6” positive ease
Sample is shown in size L on a 102 cm/40” bust with 10 cm/ 4” positive ease.

MC: 3 (3, 3, 3, 4, 4) skeins The Uncommon Thread Linum or approx. 900 (1000, 1100, 1200, 1350, 1500) meters/ 985 (1100, 1200, 1320, 1480, 1640) yards of fingering weight yarn to achieve given gauge
CC: Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails/Tosh Merino light or approx. 10 (11, 11, 12, 13, 14) meters/ 11 (12, 12, 13, 14, 15) yards of fingering weight yarn

The fiber content of the recommended yarn allows the 2x2 ribbing to open up and lie nearly flat after blocking. Yarn substitutes should be blends with fibers without much “memory” (such as bamboo, cotton, linen, silk, alpaca, yak).

Each knitter knits differently, so given yardage is an estimate.

24 sts x 32 rows = 10 cm/ 4”, in stockinette with needle 3.5 mm/ US4, washed and blocked
24 sts x 32 rows = 10 cm/ 4”, in 2x2 ribbing with needle 3.5 mm/ US4, stretched at back neck
29 sts x 32 rows = 10 cm/ 4”, in 2x2 ribbing with needle 3.5 mm/ US4, unstretched at lower body

Take time to check gauge and adjust needle size if necessary to get gauge.
