Seasonal Sweaters: Sipila



Join Megan for an iteration of Seasonal Sweaters! Before class starts we will all meet for a 1 hour session to check measurements, discuss the pattern, talk yarn options and color combinations, and to check gauge!

Sipila is knit from the top down in the round. There are options for either long or short sleeves included in the pattern; make sure you check the suggested yardage for the version you prefer, as the long sleeve version will require more yardage. The body length is easily customizable, but changing it will also affect the yardage, so please keep that in mind. If you are using hand painted or speckled yarn, it is highly recommended to alternate skeins for the main color (C1) to avoid noticeable color blocks and/or pooling. The contrast color (C2) doesn’t need to be alternated. 
The gauge for this design is intentionally loose to create a drapey, lightweight fabric.

US 2/ 2.75 mm 
US 4/ 3.5 mm

Gauge:
 
22 sts and 30 rounds over 4” 10 cm after blocking in both colorwork and stockinette.

Sizes: 
Measurements given are for the finished garment. This sweater is designed to fit with 12-14” 30.5-35.5 cm of positive ease at the bust and 2” 5 cm of positive ease at the upper arm. The gauge is intentionally loose to create a fabric that drapes nicely and flatters the body. As the sleeve has less ease than the body, it is important to choose a size that will comfortably fit around the upper arm. Sizes are given as numbers, check the measurements to determine the proper size for your sweater.
