Knitting kit for STRUCTURE LOOP SWEATER by Other Loops in Önling No 20 + silk mohair
Structure Loop Sweater is a beautiful, oversized sweater with stripes in structured knitting across the body and sleeves. On the shoulder you'll find a rib detail, which continues along the armhole and down as a panel along the side of the body.
The sweater is designed by talented Maja Kløvdal aka @otherloops and here we knit it in Önling No 20 (shetland wool) and silk-mohair, for a warm sweater with a rustic look, yet with the softness of the silk mohair. The dark blue model is knitted in this yarn combination.
You can also knit in our alternative kit with 1 thread No 15 (merino wool) and silk mohair, which gives a light and soft sweater, completely itch-free and with a modern merino / silk-mohair expression.
In addition, we have made a kit in our luxurious Önling No 1 (angora and merino) for a perfectly soft and joyful result.

Gauge: 19 sts x 32 rows in structured knitting on needle size 4 mm = 10 x 10 cm
Follow the diagramme for the structured stripes when you knit your swatch. The gauge is very important - especially the height, as several measurements in the pattern is described as a number of rows.
If you do not match the gauge in terms of number of rows, we recommend you try to switch to needles in another material.
The sweater is worked from the top down. Stitches are cast on for the back of the neck and then worked with rib stitch in both sides, and at the same time increases are worked to form the top part of the back panel. Then stitches are picked up along the edge of the shoulders, and the shoulders are worked individually back and forth. Stitches are then cast on to join the 2 shoulders into the front panel. The front and back panels are joined, and the body is worked in the round on a circular needle. The body is finished by a bottom rib hem. The sleeve stitches are picked up from the armhole, and the sleeves are worked in the round and finished by a rib stitch cuff. Finally, stitches are picked up from the neck opening and worked in rib stitch. The rib stitch neck hem is folded double and knitted down.
The structured stripes on the sweater start on the back and front panels and continue down the body and the sleeves. Follow the placing and the chart for the stripes as described in the pattern below.
