  • Loopy Mango Dream Yarn 109 yds 100 m | 50 g 1.8 oz each, 100% merino wool

XS: 6 balls in C1, 4 balls in C2
S: 6 balls in C1, 4 balls in C2

L: 8 balls in C1, 6 balls in C2

  • Size US 13 (9 mm) 16” (40 cm) Circular Knitting Needles
  • Size US 17 (12 mm) 20” (50 cm) Circular Knitting Needles

Gauge:

Stockinette on size US 17: 8.5 sts and 13 rounds/ 4”; 1x1 rib on size US 13: 10 sts and 16 rounds/ 4’’

Note: ​To achieve the right weight yarn is held double - pull from 2 balls of yarn at the same time. Cuffs, neckband and bottom rib are done holding two strands of same color yarn - C1 - Color 1. The rest of the sweater is done holding 2 strands of contrasting color - one strand of C1 - Color 1 and one strand of C2 - Color 2.

Note: Be sure to work your swatch in the round since the body and sleeves are worked in the round. For many knitters, working stockinette in the round yields a different row gauge than working it flat, since they are working only knit stitches, not knit and purl stitches.
