Knitting kit for Moby Sweater by PetiteKnit in Önling No 16 and silk mohair
Moby Sweater is a classic design beauty from PetiteKnit. The Moby Sweater is worked from the top down in an interesting texture and cable pattern. The sweater is slightly oversized, which means you can both use it as a seasonal outdoor sweater with a thin blouse underneath or as a thick and warm sweater all through winter.
Here we work Moby Sweater in Önling No 16 and Önling No 10, and the result is a gorgeous sweater with a rustic tweed look, added a twist of luxury and softness from the silk mohair.
The knitting kit contains: Önling No 16 and Önling No 10 for the selected size and a printed pattern, which you'll receive together with your yarn.

Size guide: The Moby Sweater is designed to have approx. 15-20 cm [6-8 inches] of positive ease, ie approx. 15-20 cm [6-8 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 cm [30½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) 55-59 inches].
Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S sweater has a bust circumference of 106 cm [41¾ inches] which in the given example would give you 16 cm [6¼ inches] of positive ease.
Please note: This kit does not contain the original yarn used by PetiteKnit, but carefully selected yarn that matches the gauge:
Col A: 300 (300) 375 (375) 375 (375) 450 (450) 450 g Önling No 16, 70% of the finest lambswool and 30% mohair, ca 300 m / 75 gr
Col B: 150 (150) 150 (175) 175 (175) 200 (225) 225 g Önling No 10, 70% Mohair, 30% Silk, ca 210m. / 25 g
You work with 2 strands of yarn held together throughout
Gauge: 20 sts x 28 rows = 10 x 10 cm [4 x 4 inches] in texture pattern on 4 mm [US6] needles (or the required needles to obtain gauge) after wash and blocking
Needles: Circular needles: 4 mm [US6] / 40, 60, 80 and/or 100 cm [16, 24, 32 and/or 40 inches], 3.5 mm [US4] 80 and/or 100 cm [32 and/or 40 inches], and 3 mm [US2½] / 40 cm [16 inches], a cable needle; Double-pointed needles: 4 mm [US6] and 3.5 mm [US4]
Procedure: First the back yoke is worked and shaped using short rows to form the slope of the shoulders. After this, stitches are picked up and knitted for each shoulder, which are then joined to form the front yoke. The front and back yoke are joined to form the body, which is worked straight down in the round. The sleeves are worked in the round on double-pointed needles or on a circular needle using the Magic Loop technique. Finally, stitches are picked up at the neckline to work a ribbed edge, which is then folded over towards the inside to form a double neckband, which is closed by knitting the stitches together with the pick-up edge.
Knit a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge – note that this can vary from yarn to yarn. Take care to wash the swatch before measuring, as the texture pattern can grow with wash.
