Docker is inspired by late XIXth century working clothes. The construction is the simplest, the armholes are large to permit a great freedom of movement, the cuffs are tight so you never get caught. I used Duvet d’Anjou which is a mix of wool and angora so it is both textured and soft.

Knit in the round.

Size Guide :

I wear a size S and my chest circumference is 85 cm.

Size S : Corresponds to a French 36. The chest measurement is 88 cm.
Size M : Corresponds to a French 38 - 40. The chest measurement is 94 cm.
Size L : Corresponds to a French 42. The chest measurement is 102 cm.
Size XL : Corresponds to a French 44. The chest measurement is 110 cm.

Ce modèle se porte ample en haut, resseré en bas. Si vous hésitez entre 2 tailles, je vous conseille de choisir la plus grande. Il vaut mieux qu’il soit un tout petit peu plus grand qu’un tout petit peu trop petit.

This sweater is designed to be worn loose at the shoulders and armholes, and tighten at the bottom. If you hesitate between 2 sizes, please choose the largest. It will look better if it is a bit too large than a bit too small.

2,5mm for the rib
3,5mm for the body
20cm/3,5mm circular needles for the sleeves
set of 5 2,5mm needles for the cuffs
