Silk sweater with stars
A light and classic sweater in the delicious combination of tussah silk, linen and merino wool. You get a nice, soft and light sweater that fits perfectly with the Danish weather from April to October. Or that you can use during winter under a cardigan or jacket. It’s fun to knit with 3 threads of yarn. The color combinations are many and each gives its own beautiful expression. Small stars can be knitted at the increases, which gives a nice graphic expression. These can be omitted if a more pure and simple expression is desired. The sleeves are designed with 3⁄4 length, but the pattern also describes how to knit long sleeves if desired. The sweater is a bit oversize at the chest and has a light A-shape, that can be omitted.

22 sts and 36 rows in stockinette st on needle 3 1⁄2 mm / US 4 = 10 x 10 cm.

The sweater is worked in the round, from the top down. Cast on stitches using a temporary crochet cast on, so the size of the neckline can be adjusted subsequently. Short rows are worked across the shoulder and the neckline in the beginning to give a higher neckline in the back. The yoke is worked with increases, made into small stars. These can be omitted. Hereafter the work is divided and sleeves and body are worked separately.
