The Ernie sweater is a slim and stretchy sweater in rib, worked in a yarn combination that keeps you warm and cosy on cold days. The sweater is worked top down. You start by casting on stitches for the neckline and work increases for the sleeves and for raglan at the yoke in the established rib pattern. The sweater is wider at the armhole openings; otherwise it has a slim fit. As the sweater is worked in rib, it can be perfectly adjusted to your desired fit when steam ironing it.
The grey sweater on the front page is worked in Rauma Puno no 1315 and Rauma Plum no 055.
The blue sweater is worked in Rauma Puno no 388 and Rauma Plum no 135.
Choose a size that is approx. 5- 10 cm wider (positive ease) than your chest circumference. The circumference is measured across the bust, right under the armhole opening. The stated measurements on the front page are for the finished garment.
