easy wool cardigan making strickmuster hakeln ideeen

going to show you how to knit a simple slouchy sweater so the first thing you’re going to need to make this sweater is the free written pattern which you can get by clicking the link in the description box below and the free written pattern is available at that link on my blog or you can also purchase a large print ad free printable PDF version of the pattern in my Ravelry store now this pattern comes in nine different women’s sizes from an extra swell to a 5x I’m going to be making the extra small so you’ll also
need some yarn for your sweater I’m using Lion Brand pound of love in Oxford gray and this is a worsted weight yarn and the amount will be given in the written pattern if you want to find out how many yards you need for the size you want to make or if you want to substitute a different worsted weight yarn I recommend pretty much anything that’s nice and soft and not real scratchy so you’ll also need a circular knitting needle now this one is about 40 inches long and it’s a size 8 a 5 millimeter needle but the reason that we’re using a
circular needle instead of straight needles is because even though this entire sweater is worked flat and there are no sections that are worked in the round at all everything is worked back and forth in rows but because the sweater is worked mostly in one piece we don’t want to try to cram you know for most sizes over 200 or 300 stitches on to like a 14 inch straight needle so we use a long circular needle and work back and forth on it so that we make sure that our stitches have room to be on the needle so we’re gonna still be working back and forth but we just need that
extra length to hold all the stitches that we’re going to be using here so you’ll also need some scissors a yarn needle or blunt tapestry needle a measuring tape and two stitch markers and you’ll want to make sure that the stitch markers you’re using are at least big enough around that your needle can slide through like this because these are stitch markers that we’re going to be slipping on the row as we’re knitting so this sweater is knit in three pieces we have the main body of the sweater all as one piece and
then two sleeves so for the body of the sweater we’re going to start across the bottom and we’re going to knit up to the underarms then we’re going to do a front section which is just continuing up with a rectangle for the front on the one side and then we’re going to bind off part of those stitches and knit a little kind of tab that sticks up on the neck edge then we’re going to join the yarn on another section of that same rectangle and knit up similar to make a longer section that’s still all part of the same piece then with the stitches
that are left on the other side we’re going to join yarn again and knit up another piece of rectangle with another little section that kind of protrudes off of the neck edge it’s basically just a modified rectangle with slits in it for the arm holes so this is a drop shoulder style sweater so the sleeves have very little shaping involved and the arm holes have no shaping whatsoever so this is very approachable for someone who’s an advanced beginner and hasn’t made a garment before all right so we’re going to start with our cast on I have
my yarn here and I’m going to leave several yards of a tail because we are going to be doing a longtail cast on so I’m going to go ahead and start with a slipknot like so and I’m going to place it on my right needle tip and I’m going to do a longtail cast on so I’ve got my yarn in the slingshot position generally if you are a beginner knitter this is one of the first cast ons that you learn so I’ve got the tail yarn coming over the back of my thumb and then down and then I have the yarn that’s coming from the skein going over the top of my
index finger and woven in between my other fingers below and also going down so I’m holding both of those strands of yarn the length of them with my other three fingers in my hand so I’m going to bring the needle tip towards me and pick up as you can see the strands cross around my thumb I’m gonna pick up the one that’s closest to me and then I’m going to reach over here and grab the Strand of yarn off my index finger and pull it through then I’m going to take my thumb out of that yarn and then pick it up again with my thumb to tighten up
the stitch you don’t want to make it too tight you just want to make it so that it’s not loose and saggy and floppy so again I’m going to bring the needle tip towards me pick up the Strand of yarn that is closest to me coming off the front of my thumb then reach back here and grab the yarn that’s coming off of my index finger and pull it underneath and that original strand pull my thumb out and then grab that yarn again with my thumb to kind of tighten it up a little bit but generally if you are a beginner knitter or at least an advanced
beginner knitter then you will have learned this cast on already so I’m not going to spend a bunch of time explaining that here this is a relatively universally taught cast on as far as I know among like you know learn to knit books and stuff like that so I’m going to keep casting on all the way across and I need for the extra small I need a total of 186 stitches all right so I have finished casting on all the stitches that are needed for the size that I’m making and I just want to kind of explain a little bit here before we get started this might look really
long right now I know you can’t really see it yet how how wide it actually is until we start knitting and get some fabric you know started but once we start knitting this it’s gonna seem really wide but the reason why it’s so wide is because first of all this is the back and both fronts all in one piece secondly this sweater has four inches of positive ease and you can size down if you are in between sizes if you want to to make it slightly more fitted but regardless it still got some room in it a little bit of extra room so that it can be kind of slouchy and on top of
that we are knitting the kind of like of the collar edging that comes around on the front it goes up the front behind the neck and then back down we are knitting that all in one piece with the rest of the sweater and not only does that add to the width beyond what you would normally knit for a sweater but it also is going to be wide enough that that collar edging can fold back on itself so it’s going to be this whole main body panel is going to be the entire bust circumference plus four inches plus those collar edgings that are going to be knit on the ends of our
panel here so that when we assemble our sweater that will be the front and those collar edging panels will be wide enough to fold back and again this will make more sense if you look at the schematic or at the photo that shows the finished body panel piece so now we’re going to go ahead and start knitting the ribbing so this sweater calls for a two by two ribbing meaning that we do two knits to choose two to purl stitches and I will explain that a little bit more when we get to that but what we’re going to do is we’re gonna take the needle that we
finished casting on with the one with the yarn tails coming off of it and we’re going to move the cast on tail or the yarn tail out of the way and we’re going to knit with the yarn that’s coming from the ball so because we’re not knitting in the round here I’m just going to kind of scoot the rest of the stitches down off of my left needle and we are going to be knitting starting from here so you want to make sure that the needle with the yarn coming off of it is in your left hand and I kind of like to bring some stitches down and
scrunch them up onto the needle before I get it started and what we’re gonna do is work Row one so for Row one we’re going to purl two and knit two all the way across so we’re just going to purl
