The Jenny Sweater has a beautiful textured pattern. It is knitted in the round from the bottom up in smock with raglan inserts. The body and sleeves are knitted separately, after which they are joined on the same circular needle, and the yoke is knitted. The neck is knitted back and forth on the needle, and the neckline is shaped by continuously casting off stitches. The neckline is knitted on at the end from the gathered stitches.

IMPORTANT: Knit a test piece to check your knitting strength before you start.

Size guide

Jenny Sweater should have room to move ( positive ease) of approx. 19 cm in relation to your chest measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) correspond to a chest measurement measured on your own body of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) cm. The measurements of the finished sweater are given on the front of the pattern. Measure yourself before you start knitting to determine which size will fit you best. If, for example, you measure 90 cm around the chest (or the widest part of your body), you should knit a size S. A sweater in size S has an excess width of 109 cm and, in the example mentioned, will provide a room for movement ( positive ease ) of 19 cm. If you are between two sizes, it is recommended to choose the smallest size, as smock knit will grow slightly with use.
