The Stockholm Sweater Junior is worked from the top down in stockinette stitch. You begin by working the top of the back flat, after which stitches are picked up along the cast on edge for the shoulders. Each shoulder is knit separately and shaped using short rows, so they slope neatly. The front and back of the sweater are joined under the armholes, thereafter the body is knit in the round. For the sleeves, stitches are picked up along the armholes, and then knit in the round to the cuff on DPNs or a circular needle using Magic Loop. Finally, stitches are picked up along the neck opening, and a ribbed collar is knit, folded over, and sewn down on the wrong side. The Stockholm Sweater Junior requires no other finishing than sewing down the neckband.
Begin by working a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge.
