Antalia Sweater

By:

This lovely Antalia sweater is a great staple for your wardrobe.  Perfect for any season, this colorful and comfortable sweater can be worn by itself or layered with another top.  You'll love having one in all your favorite colors.  Sizes are given for small through XXL, so you can make a sweater for all the women you know.  This is an easy knit sweater pattern to dress up or down.

Antalia Sweater

Materials:

  • 4 (4, 5, 5, 6) balls Bernat Softee Baby light yarn in Soft Fern
  • Size 4mm (US size 6) straight knitting needles or size to obtain gauge
  • DPN size 3.5mm (US size 4) knitting needles
  • Pattern

 

Gauge:  10 cm (4”) x 10 cm (4”) = 17.5 stitches and 24 rows. It is recommended to measure swatch only after you wash it to allow for any shrinkage.

 

Notes:

  • The openings in side seams are finished with a narrow ribbon to give a nice accent to the garment and to prevent the corners from curling.
  • All measurements in schematics are given in centimeters to avoid overcrowding. To convert cm to inches, multiply cm by 0.3937.
     

Sizes:
Instructions are for woman’s sizes (height 168 cm [5’6”])

  • Small (bust circumference 81-86 cm [32-34”]),
  • Medium (bust 91.5-96.5 cm [36-38”]),

  • 2X (bust 122-127cm [48-50”]).

 

Instructions:
Changes for sizes Medium, Large, 1X and 2X are in parentheses. To shorten or lengthen the pattern, decrease or increase number of rows at adjustment line by 2 rows per each cm (6 rows per each inch) of increase/decrease. The sweater on the picture is shown in size Small.

Finishing

  1. Block pieces to measurements (refer to schematics on pages 3, 5 and 6).
     
  2. Stitch sleeves to armhole edges: Align armhole edges of back (front) and sleeve right sides facing in. To make a nice-looking seam, use sewing thread of matching color and backstitch each seam right below the chain of bound off and selvage stitches.
     
  3. Neckband: With right side facing use 3.5mm (US size 4) double point needles to pick up 25 (26, 27, 28, 30) stitches along right front neck edge, 21 (24, 26, 29, 32) stitches along back neck edge, then 25 (26, 27, 28, 30) stitches along left front neck edge — 71 (76, 80, 85, 92) stitches total. Knit 6 round rows of garter stitch, knitting 2 center stitches together in the center of the front in each row (see the big scheme on the right).
     
  4. Bind off all stitches of the neckband. To make a nicelooking seam use “sewn bind off” technique: when you finish knitting the neckband cut the yarn leaving a “tail” three times longer than the length of the neckband. Thread this yarn “tail” into a tapestry or sewing needle and sew the stitches as shown on the small scheme.
     
  5. Side seams and sleeve seams. Stitch side seams and sleeve seams as continuous seams. Leave the openings in side seams from row 1 till row 27 of the knitted fabric (see the scheme on the left). To make a nice-looking seam, use sewing thread of matching color and backstitch each seam right below the chain of selvage stitches.
     
  6. Openings in side seams. To prevent corners from curling and to add a nice accent to the sweater finish openings in side seams with a 1 cm (1/2”) wide ribbon of matching or contrasting color.
