Knitting of course - When by the lake

  • 9 sizes: XS to 5 XL.

So what are you doing when you are by the lake , well I knit of course - and by a small private Swedish lake I casted on a few stitches to see how I could capture the moment and this is what came of my needles.
The sweater has fitted sleeves with an oversized body, the yoke has texture, made with a combination of knits, purls and yarnovers.

When by the lake is worked from the top down in the round. First the neck is worked in rib, then German short rows to shape the neck. Then the yoke is worked with a texture and eyelet pattern. When the yoke is done the sleeves are placed on waste yarn or stitch holders, and the body is worked in the round and ended with a ribbed hem. The sleeves are placed back on needles and worked in the round with decreases and ended with a ribbed cuff.

Techniques:
Knitting in the round.
German short rows.
Yarnovers.
Knitting through back loop.
Increases - Make one left and yarnovers.
Decreases - Knit two stitches together - and slip, slip, knit.
Yoke texture is written out instructions - no charts.

Size guide and ease:
When by the Lake is designed to have approx. 15- 20 cm {6-7,75 inches} of positive ease.
The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 71-76 (81-86) 91,5-96,5 (101,5-106,5) 111,5-117 (122-127) 132-137 (142-147) 152-158 cm {28-30 (32-34) 36-38 (40-42) 44-46 (48-50) 52-54 (56-58) 60-62 inches}. The measurements for the finished garment are listed on the front of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size to knit. For example, if you measure 85 cm {33,5 inches} around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S sweater has a bust circumference of 105 cm {41,25 inches}, which in the given example would give you 20 cm {8 inches} of positive ease. If you would like a more oversized fit, knit a size larger size and vice versa for a less oversized fit.
