MERINO NO. 5 VERSION

Pattern level: Intermediate

Sizes:  XS - 2X/3X

Materials:

  • Loopy Mango Merino No. 5 Yarn 74 yds 68 m | 150 g 5.3 oz each, 100% merino wool
  • Size US 17 (12 mm) circular needles 32'' (80 cm) in length 
  • Size US 19 (15 mm) circular needles 32'' (80 cm) in length 

Note: for neck and sleeves you will need to use magic loop method when using size US 19 (15 mm) circular needles 32’’  (80 cm).  To avoid magic loop for sleeves and neck you can use an additional size US 19 (15 mm) 20’’ (50 cm) knitting needles.  

For the cuffs you will need to use magic loop method when using size US 17 (12 mm) circular needles 32’’ (80 cm).  To avoid magic loop for cuffs you will need to use an additional set of size US 17 (12 mm) double pointed needles (DPN’s).

GaugeStockinette on size US 19: 6.5 sts/4", 10 rows/4" (this sweater is knit in the round so your gauge swatch should also be knit in the round - usually knitting stockinette stitch in the round results in tighter tension since there are no purl rows).
