The Scotty Sweater is knit from the top down in stockinette stitch holding one strand of Spinni and two strands of Silk Mohair together. You can substitute for another yarn or yarn combination that gives the same gauge, but keep in mind that the fabric characteristics may vary. You will begin by knitting the top back, then the shoulders, the front, and then the body of the sweater. Next, you will pick up stitches along the armholes for working the set-in sleeves using short rows. The neckband is knit in rib from picked-up stitches along the neckline and is folded over for a double collar. The Scotty Sweater requires almost no finishing, except for sewing down the folded neckband and the cuffs at the sleeves. The decorative lines for the characteristic pattern on the Scotty Sweater are embroidered at the end using duplicate stitches.

Size guide
The Scotty Sweater is meant to be worn with a positive ease of approx. 10 cm at the bust. This intended positive ease is built into the pattern. Therefore, the sizes XS (S) M (L) XL correspond to a bust measurement of approx. 85 (90) 95 (100) 110 cm. Please measure yourself before casting on to estimate which size will fit you best. For example, if your bust circumference is 90 cm, you should knit a size S that has a bust measurement of 99 cm. If you are between sizes, pick the smaller size. The model in the picture has a bust circumference of 85 cm and is wearing a size XS sweater.
