Knitting kit for Friday Sweater for kids by PetiteKnit in Önling No 11
Friday sweater is a great classic sweater with a maritime twist - and now it is available for kids as well! The Friday Sweater Mini is worked from the top down in broken rib with raglan increases. The neck edge is worked in rib and folded. Cuffs and hem are also worked in rib.
Begin by working a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge. Remember to wash your swatch before measuring the gauge – as broken rib grows with wash.
The Friday Sweater Mini is designed to have approx. 10-13 cm of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 10-13 cm larger in circumference than chest measurement of the child. The measurements of the finished sweater can be found on the front page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure the child to determine which size will fit the best. For example, if the child’s chest measurement is 63 cm, you should knit size 5-6 years. A sweater size 5-6 year has a chest circumference of 74 cm which in the given example would give a sweater with 11 cm of positive ease.
