Stockholm Sweater Junior
This pattern is in English.
The Stockholm Sweater Junior is knit from the top down in stockinette stitch with two strands of silk/mohair lace weight yarn held together. You begin by working the top of the back flat, after which stitches are picked up along the cast on edge for the shoulders. Each shoulder is knit separately and shaped using short rows, so they slope neatly. The front and back of the sweater are joined under the armholes, thereafter the body is knit in the round. For the sleeves, stitches are picked up along the arm holes, and then knit in the round to the cuff on DPNs or a circular needle using Magic Loop.Finally stitches are picked up along the neck opening, and a rib collar is knit, folded over, and sewn down on the wrong side. The Stockholm Sweater Junior requires no other finishing than sewing down the neckband.
