Knitting kit for October sweater from PetiteKnit

October Sweater is a wonderful, cozy sweater with a relaxed and oversize fit. It has wide ribbed edges in both sleeves and body, and a slit in the sides provides an extra good fit.

Note that the sweater shown in the pictures is knitted in a different yarn than in this kit. Here we knit October Sweater in Önling No 1, 75% Merino Superfine Super 100’s Wool and 25% angora, which makes for an even softer sweater than in original yarns. If you would rather knit in original yarns, you can find the kit here.

The knitting kit contains: Önling No 1 yarn corresponding to the selected size and a printed pattern

Sizes: XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL

Bust circumference: 116 (120) 126 (130) 139 (149) 158 (168) 177 cm [45¾ (47¼) 49½ (51¼) 54¾ (58¾) 62¼ (66¼) 69¾ inches]

Length: 69 (70) 71 (72) 73 (74) 75 (76) 77 cm [27¼ (27½) 28 (28¼) 28¾ (29¼) 29½ (30) 30¼ inches] measured mid back incl. neck edge

Size guide: The October Sweater is designed to have approx. 30 cm [11¼ inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be approx. 30 cm [11¼ inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The fit is oversize.

Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size to knit. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S sweater has a finished circumference of 120 cm [47¼ inches] which in the given example would give you 30 cm [11¼ inches] of positive ease.

The model in the photos is wearing a size XS and has a bust circumference of 82 cm [32¼ inches] and is 164 cm [approx. 5 feet 4 inches] tall.

Gauge: 21 sts x 28 rows = 10 x 10 cm [4 x 4 inches] in stockinette stitch on 4 mm [US6] needles, or the required needle size to obtain gauge

Double-pointed needles: 3.5 mm [US4] and 4 mm [US6]

Materials: 450 (500) 500 (500) 550 (600) 700 (750) 750 g Önling No 1, 75% Merino Superfine Super 100’s wool and 25% Angora. 50 g = approximately 197 yards (180 meters).

You knit with one thread throughout

Procedure:
The October Sweater is worked from the top down in stockinette stitch. The first section of the yoke is worked back and forth (flat) to shape the neckline, then the work is joined in the round and the rest of the yoke is worked in the round on circular needles and shaped with raglan increases. The sleeves and body are finished with a wide 2 x 2 rib edge. The rib edge at the neckline is worked from picked-up stitches at the end and folded double. The October Sweater has an oversize fit – knit a size smaller than recommended if you would like a less oversize sweater.

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.

Washing instructions for your knitwear
Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect. Often it is enough to hang your woolen sweater / garment outside in the humid weather or bring it with you into the bathroom, when you take a long, hot shower - the steam will often be enough to freshen it up it and remove any unwanted odors.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Everyday Kit
Neither Önling No 12 nor No 13, is pre-washed when you receive it on cones. You get the best result if you soak your finished knitted garment in lukewarm water for approx. 2 hours. Then wash the garment as you would otherwise with washing detergent for wool, either by hand or on a wool program in your washing machine. Dry it by laying it flat.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Silk kit
As the Silk Kit from Önling contains 3 different qualities (linen, wool and silk), we recommend that you always wash your silk sweater / garment by hand, to avoid it changing shape or appearance during wash. The three qualities will react differently to water, temperatures, etc. Önling can not take responsibility for the result if you wash your silk sweater in the washing machine. Your garment made from the silk kit should NOT be spun or tumble dried. Instead, dry it by laying it flat.
