This is a physical printed knitting pattern written in English. PetiteKnit patterns are printed in A5 format on high quality paper.

The Melange Sweater Man is worked from the top down. First, the back yoke is worked back and forth in stockinette stitch, while the slope of the shoulders is created using short rows. At the bottom of the back yoke, increases are worked to shape the armholes. After this, each shoulder is worked back and forth separately towards the front on circular needles, and then the two shoulders are joined to form the front yoke. Back and front yokes are joined at the bottom of the armholes to form the body, which is worked in the round on the circular needles. The sleeves are worked from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the armholes. The sleeves are worked in the round on circular needles or on double-pointed needles or using the Magic Loop technique. At the end, a neck rib edge is worked from stitches that are picked up and knitted around the neck opening. The neck rib edge is then folded double and knitted together. The Melange Sweater is worked in two thin strands of wool yarn in contrasting colors held together to achieve the marled or “mélange” look. Start by knitting a swatch to determine which size needle gives you the correct gauge. 

Size guide

The Melange Sweater Man is designed to have approx. 10-15 cm [4-6 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 10-15 cm [4-6 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 86-91 (91-96) 96-101 (101-107) 107-113 (113-119) 119-124 (124-132) 132-144 cm [33¾-35¾ (35¾-37¾) 37¾-39¾ (39¾-42¼) 42¼-44½ (44½-46¾) 46¾-48¾ (48¾-52) 52-56¾ inches]. The measurements for the finished garment are on the front page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size to knit. For example, if you measures 103 cm [40½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size L. A size L sweater has a bust circumference of 118 cm [46½ inches] which in the given example would give you 15 cm [6 inches] of positive ease.
