Classic Alpaca Sweater


The Classic Alpaca Sweater is a minimalistic, oversized design that will perfectly complete any of your outfits. This sweater has a lowered shoulder line. It’s knit with premium yarn; a mix of alpaca, cotton, and merino.

This sweater is designed to be knitted top-down, partially in the round and flat, using a half fisherman’s rib stitch.

The Classic Alpaca Sweater is designed to have approx. 28 cm [11 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 28 cm [11 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement.

Available sizes:   S ( M ) L 

Sizes S ( M ) L are designed to fit an approx. bust circumference of  80-88 (88-96) 96-104 cm [ 31-35 (35-38) 38-41 in ]

Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size M. A size M sweater has a bust circumference of 124 cm [48.75 inches] which in the given example would give you 34 cm [13.5 inches] of positive ease.

Bust circumference:  114 ( 124 ) 134 cm  [ 45 ( 48.75 ) 52.75 in ] 

Length: measured from the mid-back excluding the folded neckband 57 ( 59 ) 61 cm [  22.50 ( 23.25 ) 24 in ]
