Originally published in At the Spinnery, by One More Row Press, Ikinngut is now available as an individual pdf pattern with my usual formatting and photography.

Friends - you go on adventures with them, knit with them, and sometimes just appreciate them from afar in the comfort of your own private space. Ikinngut is the Greenlandic word for friend, and this modern rustic sweater is the perfect thing to wear for comfortable, casual rendezvous of all sorts with your besties.

Techniques & Skills Used: cable CO, knit/purl, increasing/decreasing, working in simple pattern, German short rows, picking up stitches.

Size: 34 (38, 42, 46, 50, 54)” bust circumference, shown in third size worn with 7” positive ease. I chose an oversized fit; consult the schematic for bust and other measurements, and choose a size that provides the amount of ease you prefer.

Yarn: Green Mountain Spinnery Cotton Comfort (80% fine wool, 20% organic cotton; 180 yards/165m/58g), shown in Storm 8651; 5 (6, 7, 7, 8, 8) skeins, or approximately 900 (1000, 1100, 1200, 1300, 1400) yards DK weight wool/cotton or wool yarn.

Other Materials: US 6 (4mm) 32” circular needle or size to match gauge, and US 6 dpns for sleeves if not using Magic Loop; Stitch markers (2); Removable stitch marker (1); Stitch holders (2); Yarn needle.

Gauge: 19 st and 24 rows/4” in stockinette stitch, after blocking.
