Chocolate sweater (english)

DKK  45,00 
The Chocolate sweater is a beginner-friendly sweater with a round yoke. It is worked with one strand of bouclé yarn held together with a strand of silk mohair. Here I have used 5 shades of beige/ gold/ brown/ charcoal, but you can also use leftover yarn scraps or make it entirely in one colour.
You can find the relevant instructional videos linked at the bottom of the page.

    Chocolate sweater is knitted top-down with a raised neckline, which is shaped using German short rows (GSR). The round yoke is shapes with increases that are not visible in this yarn. The sleeves have the same width throughout. The width is held together by the ribbed edges to give the sleeves a baggy shape. As the sweater is worked top-down the length can be easily adjusted to preference.

    Choice of size
    When you are selecting a size, first measure around the bust (or the widest point of the torso). If you desire an oversized fit similar to that in the picture, select the size where the bust circumference is 14-19cm larger than your own measurements. This means that you must factor in 14-19cms of positive ease. Would you prefer a less voluminous fit, select one size smaller than this.
