Sparks

Sparks

This sweater is a close relative of my Starry. It features the same technique with modular stars, but this time it knits faster. It also allows for more colorplay; you can knit the yoke with a different color.

I used Vesper sock merino for the stars (can't remember which colorway that was), and Tosh light Citrus for the top yoke. The blue yarn used for the sleeves and body is 6/28 T&D cashmere from Colourmart.

 

Materials

For sizes A, (B, C, D, E, F, G): you will need fingering-weight yarn (aprox. 400m/100 g) in the following amounts (meters) solid top ' solid bottom/selfstriping: 200/8000/400 (220/930/410, 240/1060/420, 260/1190/430, 280/1320/440, 300/1400 /450, 1320/1530/460).

If you want stars to match, you will need more selfstriping yarn. Exactly how much more? -that depends on how many repeats there are in the skein.

You will also need some scrap yarn for the sleeve sts, a tapestry needle, a stitch marker, and circular needles:

- shorter 2.5mm needles with metal tips for the stars and neckband  

- long 3.5mm needles for the body and sleeves

- optional, but highly recommended: washable fabric glue to secure the knots at the center of the modular elements.

Gauge:  - approximately 22 stitches and 30 rows = 10cm for bodice and sleeves.

The stars are about 10-11cm across.

 

Sizes: with suggested gauge, sweater fits   86 (96, 104, 112, 120, 128, 132) cm. bust circumference. If you’re between the sizes, either knit a larger size, or adjust your gauge (switch to larger needles). You can also use DK- or light DK yarn for larger sizes not described in the pattern.
