Knitting kit for Terrazzo Sweater from PetiteKnit in Önling No 2 + Önling No 10 silk mohair
The Terrazzo Sweater is worked from the top down.
First the yoke is worked flat (back and forth) on the circular needles, while the neckline is being shaped, then the work is joined to be knitted in the round.
The yoke is constructed with shoulder increases on both right side and wrong side rows on the first section.
On the next section, increases are worked on the sleeves only, and on the final section classic raglan increases are worked on both body and sleeves. The turtleneck consists of a ribbed collar worked at the end, from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the neck edge.
It is is worked in twisted rib. The sleeves are worked in the round either on double-pointed needles or on a long circular needle using the Magic Loop technique.
PetiteKnit has made videos that demonstrate the different steps in the pattern, and can be found on PetiteKnits website here (videos in danish only)
