Finished bust: 87 (94, 106, 118, 125) cm / 34 (38, 42, 46,

and is wearing size 2.

Important sizing note: Roquaine is intended to be worn
with positive ease around the bust but it has fitted sleeves.
Working a size with less positive ease may result in sleeves
that are too snug, so please take time to check the upper
arm circumference of your chosen size.

Yarn: Local Color Fiber Studio Rambouillet DK (DK/
light worsted weight; 100% wool; 240 m / 262 yds per
100 g skein)
Shade: Marigold; 4 (4, 5, 5, 5) skeins

Gauge: 19 sts & 28 rows = 10 cm / 4” over stocking stitch
on 4 mm needles after blocking.
19.5 sts & 28 rows = 10 cm / 4” over Chart B with 4 mm
needle after blocking.

Needles: 4 mm / US 6 circular needle, 80 cm (32”) length
3.75 mm / US 5 circular needle, 80 cm (32”) length
or DPNs
Always use a needle size that will result in the correct
gauge after blocking.

Notions: Smooth scrap yarn in a similar weight for
provisional cast-on, stitch markers, stitch holders or scrap
yarn.

Notes: Rocquaine begins with a provisional cast-on
and is worked from the bottom-up before splitting for
the yoke and working flat in rows. Shoulders are joined
and the neck and sleeves picked up and worked in the
round. The bottom rib bands are worked flat from the
provisional cast-on with the back rib worked to a slightly
longer length than the front. Where only one number is
given this applies to all sizes. The Rambouillet yarn has
a tendency to stretch with wear so please ensure you are
working at correct gauge to maintain a firmer finish.
