Short Story – a stunning two-tone colour blocked sweater!

We are delighted that Susanne Sommer named her design after the yarn she created it in, On Stage - Short Stories.

This sweater seduces with its simplicity and clear lines. It is knit in a clever seamless modular sideways construction, making it very interesting to knit.

Starting with a provisional cast-on at the colour-change to the right of the neckline, the sweater is worked towards the cuffs to both sides. The hem is knit concurrently as a double-knit edge. The cuffs and neckline feature twisted ribbing for some textural interest, both can be worked in a single or double layer.

Short Story has a casual fit that can be tailored to your preferences. With 8 body and sleeve circumferences, 8 lengths from cropped to tunic-length, and 3 neckline options to choose from, you can mix and match to create your dream sweater.

Susanne’s quote:
The exquisite blend of super soft Merino, lustrous Silk and exotic Baby Camel of On Stage - Short Stories by Nature’s Luxury makes the yarn used in this sweater extra squishy, while having excellent stitch definition. Knit in two of the palette’s luscious shades, the sweater will be a wardrobe staple with a twist that you’ll want to wear again and again and again.

5 kits are set up including the amount of yarn needed to knit the size and length you choose.

How to select your kit corresponding to your size:

1. Choose your bust circumference including positive ease. Pick a size that is about 10-15 cm / 4-6” wider than your bust circumference (body measurement). Less ease will result in a tighter-fitting sweater, more ease will result in a more over-sized sweater.

2. Choose your desired length of your sweater, e.g. a (b, c, d, e)[f, g, h]. Remember that the hem will add an extra 3 cm, 1 ¼ “ to the finished length.

3. Select the corresponding kit (1 - 5), according to the list below.

1) Size 1 a-h, 2 a-f & 3 a-b: 3x MC + 2x CC = 5 skeins total
2) Size 3c, 4a: 4x MC + 2x CC = 6 skeins total
3) Size 2 g-h, 3 d-h, 4 b-h, 5 a-g, 6 a-e, 7 a-d, 8 a-b: 4x MC + 3x CC = 7 skeins total
4) Size 5h, 6f: 5x MC + 3x CC = 8 skeins total
5) Size 6 g-h, 7 e-h, 8 c-h: 5x MC + 4x CC = 9 skeins total
