Anker’s Sweater is worked from the top down. The yoke is worked in sections of rib with increases in the round, followed by classic raglan increases when the stockinette stitch section begins. The sleeves are worked at the end, either on double-pointed needles or on circular needles using the Magic Loop technique. Anker’s Sweater has no finishing other than weaving in ends.

Size guide

Anker’s Sweater is designed to have approx. 10-15 cm of positive ease. The sizes 0-3 months (3-6 months) 6-9 months (9-12 months) 1-2 years (2-3 years) 3-4 years (4-5 years) 5-6 years (6-7 years) 7-8 years (8-9 years) 9-10 years (10-12 years) are designed to fit a chest circumference of approx. 42 (45) 47 (49) 53 (54) 56 (57) 59 (62) 64 (68) 72 (77) cm. The measurements for the finished garment are listed on the front page of the pattern (please note that these measurements are only achieved if the sweater is knitted in the correct gauge). If you/the recipient measures 56 cm around the chest, you should knit a size 3-4 years. Size 3-4 years has a chest circumference of 70 cm which will, in this example, give 14 cm of positive ease.

If the measured chest circumference deviates from the age guide, you can adjust the lengths to the person you’re knitting for. The same applies if the child is short/taller than average.
