Sneak peek: Sweater Weather

Sweater Weather pattern from Woolenberry

I’m beyond excited that my Warm & Woolly sweater is finished and I can finally wear it! After all the trial and error, the sweater is now exactly how I wanted it. A classic wardrobe staple with beautiful details.

This sweater is a seamless top-down raglan with a beautiful lace panel in the front, which you’ll recognise from Lake Song. The great thing about top-down raglans is that you can try them on at any point during the knitting process. And I’ve been doing that a lot, despite some slight mishaps as I’ve shared with you… but all’s good now!

This sweater will be a real staple in my wardrobe. It’s simple and thoroughly enjoyable to knit and I’m looking forward to wearing it everywhere. It looks great with both jeans and skirts.

I wrote the pattern in 12 sizes (yes, 12!), from 32 to 54 inches at the bust, because I wanted it to fit as many body types as possible. The yarn I used is Malabrigo Arroyo in Pearl (100% merino; 305 m / 334 yds per 100 g). The yarn is very smooth and has a lovely sheen. And the Pearl colourway is so gorgeous I can’t get enough of it!

To help you prepare for the pattern release, here’s info on the sizes available and the yardage you’ll need for your Sweater Weather.

Sweater bust circumference: (81, 86, 91, 96) [102, 107, 112, 117] {122, 127, 132, 137} cm / (32, 34, 36, 38) [40, 42, 44, 46] {48, 50, 52, 54} inches.

Measure your own bust circumference (with bra on, if you wear them) and choose a size that’s 5-10 cm / 2-4 inches larger than your actual bust.

Yardage needed: (4, 5, 5, 5) [5, 5, 6, 6] {6, 6, 7, 7} skeins of Malabrigo Arroyo. Or about (1200, 1250, 1330, 140) [1450, 1520, 1600, 1670] {1770, 1840, 1900, 1980} m / (1310, 1370, 1460, 1530) [1590, 1660, 1750, 1830] {1940, 2010, 2080, 2170} yds of similar sport (or maybe even DK) weight yarn.

Gauge: 24 stitches and 37 rows = 10 cm / 4 inches in stockinette stitch knitted in the round, after wet-blocking. I used size 3 mm / US 2.5 needles, but yours is probably different. So don’t skip swatching.

You’ll need needles in various lengths: dpns for the neck band and sleeves, 40-60 cm / 16-24 inch circulars for the yoke, and 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circulars for the body (depending on your sweater size).

And another set of dpns in one or two sizes smaller for the sleeve cuffs. And another long circular needle in one or two sizes smaller for the hem. I used size 2,5 mm / US 1 for these.

You’ll also need 7 stitch markers (4 markers for raglan, 2 markers for lace, 1 marker for BOR).

Sweater Weather pattern goes live next week! The Warm & Woolly 2018 collection includes this sweater, a matching hat, and a shawl. You can buy each pattern on its own or, if you love them all, you can save by purchasing the entire collection. I’ll share the other two patterns of the collection soon.
