PETITEKNIT AGNETE CARDIGAN

From: $126.00

The Agnete Cardigan is worked from the top down in brioche stitch. First a section for the back of the neck is worked in double knitting, which will connect to the front edges, and form the integrated button bands. Next, stitches are picked up and knitted along the edge of this section, and the back yoke is worked from these. After this, the right and left front yoke are worked flat, separately. The three parts of the yoke are joined to form the body, which is worked flat, back and forth in brioche stitch while the front edges or button bands are continued to be worked simultaneously in double knitting. Buttonholes are worked along the double knitting front bands. Stitches are then picked up and knitted along the armholes and the sleeves are worked down from these in the round.

Begin by knitting a swatch before you start your project, to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge. Please be aware that the row gauge (i.e. how many rows there are height-wise in 10 cm [4 inches] in a column) can vary depending on the yarn you’re knitting with. The most important thing is to have the correct stitch gauge (i.e. how many stitches there are width-wise in 10 cm [4 inches]).

You can find videos of the brioche stitch and double knitting techniques at www.petiteknit.com.

Size guide

The Agnete Cardigan is designed to have approx. 10-15 cm [4-6 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be approx. 10-15 cm [4-6 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm [31½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) 55-59 inches]. The measurements for the finished cardigan can be found on the front page of the pattern. Measure yourself before beginning your project, to determine which size will fit you the best. 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 bust circumference of 105 cm [41¼ inches] which in the given example would give you 15 cm [5¾ inches] of positive ease.
