Terrazzo Sweater Kit
Are you looking for a comfy, cozy sweater? Well look no further! We've put together some kits for the Terrazzo Sweater by PetiteKnit using Noro Silk Garden Sock Solo and Leo & Roxy Yarn Co. Mohair/Silk.
The Terrazzo Sweater is worked from the top down. First the yoke is worked flat (back and forth) on the circular needles, while the neckline is being shaped, then the work is joined to be knitted in the round. The yoke is constructed with shoulder increases on both right side and wrong side rows on the first section. On the next section, increases are worked on the sleeves only, and on the final section classic raglan increases are worked on both body and sleeves. The turtleneck consists of a ribbed collar worked at the end, from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the neck edge. It is worked in twisted rib. The sleeves are worked in the round either on double-pointed needles or on a long circular needle using the Magic Loop technique. Begin by working a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge.
These kits will make the Terrazzo Sweater by PetiteKnit.
