ma non troppo is an elegant tailored pullover that plays with textures and airy lightness.

Stripes of 1ply merino-silk alternate with whispy mohair lace that also fashions the billowing collar.

Yarn sets Dyed to Order
Cathrin is dyeing a selection of colour combinations for ma non troppo. They will be in the shop update on Sunday 22 February, 9 pm CET (WalkCollection).

  • The dramatic collar is optional (given yardages include the collar)
  • The collar is really a hood for the sake of a billowing drape – it’s not intended to be worn as a hood (but could be)
  • As usual, everything is knitted in one go – no seaming, and only a few ends to weave in
  • Waist shaping
  • An optional bust dart is worked in cleverly (yes) with the stripes
  • The set in sleeves are knitted in the round from cap to cuff
  • Step by step instructions and photos take you through the unusual beginning and show how to pick up stitches for a neat and tailored sleeve cap
  • The pattern is written and also has a helpful chart to keep track of rows and shaping (chart is not required reading)

Note: The collar in the photos was knitted with a second CC (that matched the lighter MC colour).

Another Note: The pullover in the photos is a little longer in the back – a modification of the pattern (it’s just a double bust dart, and the bust darts are in the pattern).

The name? It should really include a comma, as in ma, non troppo!
Ma non troppo was designed and knitted for a mother, and mothers sometimes have to be told (in the kindest possible way): ma’, not too much!
