Notes

Lofn is Norse for praise. This pullover is praising texture with its sideways voluptous cables and welt pattern that works like a rib. The upper part is picked up and knitted in Fisherman’s Rib and increased into top part of sleeve, while the bottom part of sleeve is knitted separately.

Sizes: S (M, L, XL, 2XL)

Finished measurements:
Bottom width: 92 (102, 112, 122, 132) cm/36.25 (40.25, 44, 48, 52)“
Wingspan (without lower sleeve): 71 (76, 81, 86, 91) cm/28 (30, 32, 33.75, 35.75)”
Lower sleeve length: 24.5 (22, 19.5, 17, 14.5) cm/9.75 (8.75, 7.75, 6.75, 5.75)“
Length: 53 (53, 54, 54, 55) cm/20.75 (20.75, 21.25, 21.25, 21.75)”
Note: Sample is knitted in size S but with a bottom width of 80 cm/31.5” instead of 92 cm/36.25” and height of 25 cm/9.75” instead of 30 cm/11.75”, due to a tight gauge.

Yarn: Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk, Sølje Pelsull (100% pelt wool, 350 m/383 yds, 100 g). The sample is knitted in Red 2132; 4 (5, 5, 6, 7) skeins; 1330 (1540, 1750, 1960, 2170) m/1454 (1684, 1913, 2143, 2373) yds.

Or another Sport/5 ply or Fingering 4/ply yarn.

Needles: 3 mm/US 2.5 straight circular needle (80 cm/32”).
3 mm/US 2.5 DPNs for sleeves.
Adjust needle size as needed to match gauge.

Notions: Stitch markers (removable), 3.25 mm/US D/3 crochet hook (for preliminary cast-on), cable needle and yarn needle.

Gauge: 24 sts and 32 rows in st st measures 10 cm/4” square.
24 sts and 40 rows in Fisherman’s rib measures 10 cm/4” square.
30-sts Cable measures 8 cm/3.25” wide.

Notes: The body is knitted in four parts with cables and welt pattern on the bottom part and Fisherman’s rib on the upper part. Increases are made in each side of the upper part for top of sleeve part. Bottom sleeves are worked flat separately. If you want to shorten or lengthen the sweater, adjust the height of the lower panel, adjust the stitch number in Welt pattern, e.g. to 24 sts for 3.5 cm/1.5” extra length and allow more yarn.

English pattern will be test knitted in my Ravelry group beginning 15th October.

Yes, Grete - ma9: the turbo knitter - knitted this in a week due to another sample knitter pulling out (extra long posting time) and the set date for the photoshoot fast approaching, hence the tight gauge at the bottom.
