About the sizes: ”What a Waist Sweater” is a large woollen sweater made in a broken rib stitch. The sweater is designed to have a positive ease of about 15-25 cm. The design does account for the fact that positive ease is not the same for every size. This means that the positive ease is smaller on the bigger sizes. If you would like a tighter fit you can make a size smaller and still knit following the cm measurements of your original size.

The measurements:

Length on the middle of the back (excluding the ribbed edge at the neck): about 52 (56) 57 (57) 60 (65) cm

Width at the connection of the body (beneath the arm hole): about 50 (52) 54 (58) 60 (65) cm


Hjertegarn Incawool (100 grams = 160 metres): 400 (500) 500 (600) 600 (7-800) grams Held together with drops sky (50 grams 190 metres): 200 (200) 200 (200) 250 (300) grams

You can also make the sweater in Navia ”trio” held together with Drops ”Brushed Alpaka Silk” - calculate the same amount of metres as stated above. This yarn alternative will give you a lighter and more airy sweater.

Knitting gauge: Broken rib stitch: 12 stitches x 22 rows on 7 mm needles with the two strands of yarn held together = 10x10 cm after washing and blocking. Ribbed edges: on a 5 mm needle 16 stitches x 28 rows = 10x10 cm. Please NOTE that the broken rib stitch expands a lot when washed and by usage, especially width wise. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you make a gauge swatch and wash it, in order to find the needle size you will need to use to get the correct knitting gauge.

The broken rib stitch is made by alternating between 1 knitted row and 1 ribbed row (k1, p1).

Recommended needles: 7 mm needles (40 and 80 or 100 cm) and 5 mm needles (40 and 80 cm)
