Tegna (knit) - Wednesdays, beginning August 21



This oversized, drapey, easy-to-wear sweater is worked from the bottom up using fingering weight yarn. The project is worked in the round and then splits at the sleeves.

  • Short row shaping
  • Picking up stitches

* Note from Shelley re gauge - "The pattern calls for needle size 3 for the main body and 2 for the neckline, but also warns that many knitters had to go up a number of sizes to get gauge. I used a US 7 for the main body and a US 6 for the neckline. My suggestion is to start your swatch using a US 5 and go from there." If you would like to discuss the swatching process for this project, please call the shop and ask for Shelley.
