Roxy sweater

Roxy Sweater

The Roxy sweater is a very comfortable knitted pullover with an elegant V-neck on the backside which goes perfectly with a simple pair of jeans for a casual but special day-to-day wear. It is knit in one piece, top down, with raglan technique and big balloon sleeves. Use soft worsted yarn (cat.4), for example baby llama wool or an alpaca blend. The front piece is shorter than the back and reaches right above the hip line, but feel free to try it on as you knit to get the best fit for your body and the length you desire.

Roxy blusen er en komfortabel pullover med elegant V-halskant på bagsiden, som passer perfekt til simple jeans som en pæn dagligdagskombination. Den er strikket i ét stykke, oppefra med raglan og rigtig store ballonærmer i et blødt og tykt garn ligesom Baby Llama garnet jeg fandt hos Juniper Moon Farm. Forstykket er kortere end bagstykket og strikkes så langt nedad som passer bedst for dig.

Der ”Roxy sweater” ist ein komfortabler Pullover mit elegantem V-Ausschnitt. Als Alltagsoutfit mit dem gewissen Etwas, sieht er einfach perfekt zu Jeans aus. Er wird in einem Stück gestrickt, von oben nach unten, mit Raglanärmeln und sehr weiten Ballon-Ärmeln. Ideal strickt es sich in einem weichen, dicken Garn, wie zum Beispiel Baby Lama oder Alpaka. Die Vorderseite ist kürzer als die Rückseite und die Länge kann je nach Wunsch angepasst werden.

Le « Roxy sweater » est un haut tricoté très confortable avec une encolure en V élégante à l’arrière, parfait sur une paire de jeans pour un look casual de tous les jours. Il est tricoté d’une pièce en partant du haut, avec des emmanchures raglan et de grandes manches ballon. Vous aurez besoin d’un fil doux type worsted (cat.4), par exemple de la laine de bébé lama ou un mélange alpaca. Le devant du pull est plus court que le dos et se pose juste au-dessus de la ligne de hanches, mais libre à vous de l’essayer sur vous-même pendant que vous tricotez pour l’adapter à vos mesures et votre longueur souhaitée.

Sparkles cable top

The Sparkles sleeveless cable top is worked in one piece from the bottom up until the armhole shaping, at which point the front and back are knit separately. The cable binding is worked first, then sewn together to form the hemline that the top is then cast onto. The yarn chosen for the model (size S) is a combination of Lana Grossa Silkhair Lusso (a mohair with some shimmer in it) and Lana Grossa Cashmere 16 fine, which gives it a more glamorous look. You can of course opt for any other combination, or a single thread of any DK or light worsted yarn (cat. 3) that fits the indicated gauge.
