£12.00

Who doesn’t love a good chunky knit on a winter’s day? This pattern bundle has everything you need to keep you cosy when the weather turns cold. The Aosta Sweater (Chunky Edition) and Aosta Cardigan (Chunky Edition) are basically two giant blankets you can wear… and the Aosta Blanket is, well, a blanket! You can wrap yourself up in all the chunky Andalusian stitch goodness (cats not included!).

Description

Aosta Cardigan (Chunky Edition) 

Materials

You will need 9mm and 15mm long circular needles. As is noted in the pattern, you can use straight needles to work the body if you prefer. I alternated between the two, as the garment got quite heavy and circular needles didn’t feel comfortable enough for me. You can either work the sleeves using the magic loop technique or, if you have them, use double-pointed knitting needles. You will also need 8 stitch markers (which can be scrap yarn loops, if that’s easier on such large needles) and a darning needle.

You will need approx. 5-6 (5-6) 6 (6-7) 7-8 (7-8) 8 (8) 8-9 skeins of The Wool by We Are Knitters or any alternative yarn that matches the necessary tension. This is assuming that you want a longer-length cardigan. If you want a more cropped, bomber-jacket style garment, you can take away 1-2 skeins.

The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are intended to fit a bust measurement of roughly 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-105 (105-110) 110-115 (115-120) 120-125  cm with around 20-25 cm positive ease. The fit is meant to be relaxed, so as to best show off the amazing texture of the wool and the stitch.

 Materials

You will need 9mm and 15mm long circular needles. You can either work the sleeves using the magic loop technique or, if you have them, use double-pointed knitting needles. You will also need 8 stitch markers and a darning needle. I recommend using a 100cm needle cord.

You will need approx. 5 (5) 6 (6) 6/7 skeins / 400 (400m) 480m (480m) 560m of The Wool by We Are Knitters or any alternative yarn that matches the necessary tension.

The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL are intended to fit a bust measurement of roughly 85-90 (90-95) 95-100 (100-105) 105-110 cm with around 15-20cm positive ease. The fit is meant to be relaxed, so as to best show off the amazing texture of the wool and the stitch. For reference, my bust measures c. 90cm and I made the size S.
