Knitting kit for Ingrid Sweater by PetiteKnit, Jensen Yarn + silk mohair
PetiteKnit has designed this beautiful Ingrid Sweater in structured knitting. A classic and simple sweater with many great details and techniques!
Ingrid sweater can be worked in 3 different yarn kits. See related products below.
Here we work it in the original yarns, which is Jensen Yarn from Isager and silk mohair. It gives a soft and dense sweater with a clear and visible pattern structure.
See also alternative kit with 1 strand of Önling No 2 (100% merino) and 1 strand of Önling No 10 (70% mohair, 30% silk) for a very soft sweater, which is lighter than the original kit with Jensen Yarn. You get the classic fluffy, expression that is a result of knitting with silk mohair.
See also kit with 1 thread Önling No 1 (75% merino and 25% angora), which is a super alternative if you want to avoid silk mohair, and get a slightly lighter sweater with great softness and a nice, clear stitch expression.
The knitting kit contains: Jensen Yarn from Isager and Önling No 10 (knit 2 threads together) for the selected size and a printed pattern that you receive together with your yarn.

The measurements for the finished garment are indicated in the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size will fit you the best.

Recommended needles: Circular needles: 4 mm [US6] / 40, 60, 80 and/or 100 cm [16, 24, 32 and/or 40 inches], 3 mm [US42½] / 40 cm [16 inches] and 3.5 mm [US4] / 40, 80 and/or 100 cm [16, 32 and/or 40 inches]

Procedure: The Ingrid Sweater is worked from the top down in a knit and purl texture pattern. First, the back yoke is worked back and forth and the sloping shoulders are shaped using short rows. Then stitches are picked up and knitted for the shoulder sections, which are also shaped using short rows. The shoulder sections are then joined to form the front yoke. The front and back yoke are joined at the underarms to form the body, which is worked straight down in the round. The sleeves are knitted in the round from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the armholes. The Ingrid Sweater is worked in a texture pattern, which consists of three different pattern sections, each one separated by an eyelet section.
Begin by knitting a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge before starting the project – note that the gauge needs to be correct both in width and height, for you to be able to achieve the measurements in the pattern.
Please Note: The price of the yarn kit is calculated based on the amount of yarn included, which is the amount we have used to knit the design according to the above measurements. Should you need more yarn, additional yarn can be purchased at regular prices by placing an order and state LOT number in the comment box at checkout. All designs have been thoroughly calculated and tested.
