PetiteKnit - Celeste Sweater Junior


PetiteKnit Knitting Pattern - Celeste Sweater Junior

Top-Down Knitting | Sizes 1 - 14yrs

The Celeste Sweater is worked from the top down and has a circular yoke. First the neck edge is worked, then the yoke is worked in the round in the charted colorwork pattern using 5 different colors. Short rows are worked after the stranded pattern has been completed to raise the back and create a nice fit. The body and sleeves are worked in the round in stockinette stitch and finished with a rib edge.

Please note that stranded knitting often needs to be worked on a needle 0.5-1 mm larger to maintain the same gauge as the stockinette stitch sections worked in one color. For this reason, you need to work a swatch in both the stranded colorwork pattern and in solid stockinette stitch before starting your sweater.

This is not a piece of clothing, you are purchasing a knitting pattern to create your own garment. Patterns are a physical, printed copy and will be posted to you by Royal Mail.
