Schöne Pullover aus dem Web einfach nachstricken - Chiemseegarn

Simply knit beautiful sweaters from the web

The web is full of ideas for beautiful knitwear. You won't always find instructions on how to do this. But that doesn't matter! Experienced knitters can also copy patterns or adapt them for themselves. You just have to take good measurements and do a stitch test.

Schöne Pullover aus dem Web einfach nachstricken

It's really easy if you have a favorite sweater that fits perfectly and you simply copy the pattern. Then you measure the length and width of the individual parts and draw them on. You determine which pattern you want to knit and do a stitch test. So you can always calculate exactly how many stitches you need. Of course, it gets tricky when increasing and decreasing the stitches at the neckline and sleeves. But here, too, practice makes perfect.

The neckline is usually a third of the width of the top. You pull off these stitches. Then you design the neckline as you like, e.g. big and round or very flat like a boat neckline or you decide on a V-neckline. In the last four rows of the shoulders, you always bind off a quarter of the stitches, or you divide them into thirds. Then the shoulders are nicely rounded.

Use other sweater patterns and patterns to create your own work. This is particularly helpful for the individual cut-out solutions. Here we present you a pullover from the web that is so cleverly and beautifully asymmetrically cut that you just have to knit it! Preferably with your new favorite yarn from Chiemseegarn!

Refined, asymmetrical sweater in half patent pattern

Different variants of patent patterns are possible for the pattern:

It's most likely a brioche pattern with a row of stockinette stitches in between. This is how the fine waffle structure is created, which is not as voluminous as a pure patent pattern.

Here you can see some examples of suitable patent patterns:

The cut:

The back part of the pullover is knitted quite normally. The highlight is the front part. Here you do not knit from bottom to top, but you start at the side of the back piece. One half of the front part has exactly the same width as the length of the back part up to the armhole. It has to be sewn on exactly on the back part, or you pick up the stitches directly on the back part. Then you knit straight up. So long that the front parts are a bit bulbous. Important: You have a large, round neckline that you have to work out on both front pieces. The piece is sewn straight on at the shoulders. The shoulder seams are relatively narrow because you have a very large turtleneck. So calculate a very generous, wide neckline. On the left front piece you have to leave out the buttonholes at the top.

The sleeves are loose but not too wide. There are no cuffs.

shawl collar:

Measure the exact width of the neckline for the shawl collar. The best way to do this is to sew the sweater together. Then you measure along the neckline with the tape measure: This is how long the shawl collar needs to be knitted! The pattern is the same as for the sweater. The shawl collar needs to be knitted about 20 cm wide so that it falls so loosely. You knit it extra and then sew it into the sweater.

closure with buttons:

The special feature of this sweater is the closure with a flap and two strikingly large buttons. The flap keeps the turtleneck in shape, away from the neck. You choose a different pattern for this rollover.It is best to knit a very fine rib pattern with smaller needles. It reaches from the inside of one front part over the collar to the outside and therefore has to be knitted that long. Measure this yourself. The rollover must not be very tight, but must be loose. When knitting, skip the buttonhole at the top of the flap.

Concluding word:

If you see a great knit sweater somewhere, but there are no instructions for it, then just try to knit it. It's not rocket science to create your own sewing patterns when you've already created a few well-fitting knit sweaters. You can also simply use the dimensions of purchased sweaters that fit particularly well.
