Guido sweater

Guido pattern is now available!
A huge thank you to my lovely test knitters Maria, Inkeri, Emilia, Teija, Gudrun, Eva, Maija, Emilia, Heli, Tanya, Svenja and Satu! You can see their lovely Guidos here.

The pattern comes in twelve sizes: 21 ¼ (22, 23, 25, 26, 26 ¾, 28 ¼, 29 ¼, 30, 31, 33, 34 ¼)” / 54 (56, 59, 63, 66, 68, 72, 74, 76, 79, 84, 87) cm chest circumference, to fit approx. 1 (1.5, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 14) years old.
The sweater is designed to be worn with 3” / 8 cm of positive ease.

I recommend using Aran-weight or heavy worsted yarn that gives you the gauge. The yarn used for sample is Pirtin Kehräämön Karstalanka, a finnish wool yarn.
You’ll need approx. 440 (455, 475, 505, 525, 560, 585, 615, 630, 665, 720, 745) yds / 400 (415, 435, 460, 480, 510, 535, 560, 575, 610, 660, 680) m yarn of your choice.

The gauge is 17 sts and 24 rows in Stockinette stitch = 4” / 10 cm

The needles and notions you’ll need are following:
• two Size 8 US / 5.0 mm circular needles, 24-32” / 60 – 80 cm long
• Size 8 US / 5.0 mm double pointed needles for sleeves or a long circular needle if you use Magic Loop technique.

• row counter
• stitch markers
• tapestry needle
• waste yarn for pocket and underarm stitches
• 2 buttons, ¾” / 2 cm in diameter.

In pattern page 2, you’ll find all abbreviations and techniques used in this pattern.

Thank you!
