edited to add yarn info and sizing below
Last week when I posted about this sweater there seemed to be a decent amount of interest. To my knowledge, the pattern only comes in French — a perfect candidate for a knit along, non?
Let me know if you’re interested and if there are enough people I’ll create another blog for it. We’ll need a place to write to each other and talk through the translations.
Sizing 33.5, 36, 40, 42.5, 47 in (84, 90, 98, 106, 118 cm)
Yarn Phildar Partner 50% polyamid, 25% wool, 25% acrylic 74 yards (66 m) 11, 12, 13, 14, 16 balls and Phildar Sunset 65% viscose 35% polyester 218 yards (200 m) 4, 4, 5, 5, 6 balls
Gauge I don’t have the pattern yet but it looks like both yarns are held together throughout. The sunset yarn is a metallic laceweight so I’m guessing the sweater’s gauge is similar to Partner’s gauge of 15 sts and 20 rows over 4 in/10 cm.
Needles Partner’s recommended needles are US 8-10 (5-6 mm)
BTW, this (found via the Colchique Along) couldn’t have come at a better time. It’s the best French-English knitting term dictionary I’ve come across.
Oh — and if you have any names for the sweater please leave them in the comments too. If we use the name I’ll send you a little package in return!
