Item details

Repeto Sweater is a modern and relaxed garment for everyday use. Repeto gets is look by repeating purl and knit rows in the hem, but the real trick is in your elbows: the panels made by short rows give some extra space for the elbows and they are the coolest detail of the sweater.

The design of the sweater is relaxed, and the V shape gives some space for your body. You can wear it with a tank top, a basic tee or a silky blouse. Layering looks great because the sweater is a little bit cropped as contemporary garments are. If you want to add more length, just work more rows.

The oversized shoulders prop up the vision of a trendy item, and the neckline is wide so it’s pleasant to wear too.

The sweater is knit seamlessly from the top down. First you cast on provisionally the shoulder pieces, work and combine them by ripping off your provisional CO. Then you join in round to work the body and finish the neckline. Now there’re only sleeves to go! Pick up the stitches and you’re almost done.

If you want to underline you last detail, you can duplicate a small Repeto motif in the hem. And then repeat the sweater!

Shown here in size M (36). The sample is knit of Walk Collection Cottage Merino in colorway Cream-Cherry Brittle.

You need:
Yarn
• 3, 3 (4, 4, 4) skeins of fingering weight yarn (approx. 366 m / 100 g) (400 yd / 3,5 oz). Yardage approx. 290, 300 (330, 370, 400) g / 1000, 1100 (1200, 1350, 1450) m, 10, 10,5 (11,5, 13, 14,1) oz / 1090, 1200 (1300, 1480, 1600) yd. Merino single and sock yarn suggested: Walk Collection Cottage Merino, La Bien Aimee Merino singles, Lystig Yarn Merino singles, Hedgehog Fibres, Madelinetosh Tosh Light or any yarn
that goes nicely to gauge.
• 1 m/ 1,1 yd of popping color for duplicated stitch pattern (optional)
• Waste yarn for provisional CO
• 3 st markers (2 for the body/sleeves and 1 for measuring the body)

Needles & others
• Main needle: 3,75 mm (US5) 80 or 120 cm (31 or 47”) circular needle or size to obtain gauge. I prefer the longer one just to try the sweater from time to time.
• Sleeve needle: 3,75 mm (US5) DPN’s if you don’t use the magic loop method.
• Hem needle: 3 mm (US3) 80 cm (31”) circular needle.
• Neckline needle: 3 mm (US3) 40 cm (15”) circular needle if you don’t use the magic loop method with the longer one.
• Cuff needle: 3 mm (US3) DPN’s if you don’t use the magic loop method.
• 3,5 mm crochet hook for crochet CO (suggested but optional).
• Tapestry needle for duplicating sts (optiona) and finishing.
• Waste yarn for provisional CO.

Sizes: S, M (L, XL, XXL) / Your bust 85, 90 (100, 110, 120) cm / 34, 36 (40, 44, 48)”
Finished sweater bust circumference approx. 107, 115 (125, 135, 137) cm / 43, 46 (50, 54, 55)”.
Note that this is an oversized sweater on bust and shoulders so the sizes don’t grow evenly. The idea is to choose a size that has approx. 15-20 cm / 6-8” of positive ease on bust, but you can fit in the smaller sizes too because of the positive ease. Then the sweater isn’t just that wide. On larger sizes, also the sizes sleeve circumference grows and the biggest change is more space in the body.

FAQs

I use professional acid dyes and quality yarns. After dying I rinse the yarns carefully. I also wash them as long as they don't bleed. Some really bright colors or yarns with a lot of speckles may bleed a little bit during first washes and that's normal. After washing I let them dry for a couple of days but never hang them when they all wet so they won't stretch.

Although most of my yarns are superwash merino, I recommend cold hand-wash. That's how the dye stays at its best. For the same reason I never wash my knitted items without any reason, only if they have stains. Fresh air is usually enough. I have tested my yarns in washing machine. And yes, the dye stays. But still: cold hand-wash, please!

Kyllä voi! Vastaan mieluusti, jos sinulla on kysyttävää.

Yes you can, just contact me in 14 days of delivery and ship them back in 21 days. I do understand that even though I try to photograph the yarns as they are in nature and be as realistic as possible, we can see them differently from different screens. Buyers are responsible for shipping costs for both ways. I return the cost of the item.

I like there's a main color and some speckles to support the idea. I don't want them to be too fuzzy so they match with other yarns easily. I also like using white as an element. It brightens the look and makes yarn vivid. I like to keep color combinations interesting and contemporary, and I read a lot of fashion magazines. I want my yarns also to match the clothes I'm wearing. I have recipes for the color combos but I prefer using my eyes. That's why the next dye lot is never exactly the same. If you like to have a bigger amount of some colorway, please contact me. I do custom orders.

There are no animals in my dying studio, but we have cats at home. I store my yarns in boxes at home and even though I wouldn't let the cats near the yarns, I can't guarantee totally animal free zone for the yarns, sorry!
