Daves sweater is a rather thick and wonderful sweater with extra length and an oversize fit. It is large in size and thus perfect for cold autumn and winter days, when you need to cuddle into something warm. Remember to check the measurements, so you get a garment you enjoy.
Daves sweater is worked bottom up with double thread on thick needles. It is divided into front and back piece at the armhole openings and both pieces are finished separately. The neckline is large and thick and it is folded double before the stitches are cast off. Pick up stitches for the sleeves around the armhole openings and work them to your desired length.  

Vams in 100% Norwegian wool will give a dense and heavy sweater with good durability that will last long. The yarn has many good qualities such as tenacity.
Puno will give a thinner wool sweater with a bit more air between the stitches, but still with good thickness and warmth. Since the yarn is a «blown» yarn, it does not have the natural durability. 


Size guide:
Choose a size that is approx. 30-35 cm larger than your chest circumference (positive ease). 

Needle sizes:
Circular needle 10 mm (40, 60 or 100 cm) for all pieces in stockinette stitch, both at body and sleeves. Use Magic Loop method at sleeves.
Circular needle 8 mm (40, 60 or 100 cm) for ribbing at cuffs, hem and neckline. Use Magic Loop method at sleeves.

The pictured sweater is worked in Rauma Vams 03 and Lang Cloud 008.
If you want to work the sweater in Lang Cloud, you need the same amount of yarn as Rauma Puno. Round up to the nearest 100 g if necessary in your size.
