This is a paper copy in English.

Melange Sweater Junior is worked from the top down. First, the back yoke is worked back and forth in stockinette stitch. Then, each shoulder is worked separately and joined to form the front yoke. Front and back yoke are then joined to form the body, which is worked in the round on a circular needle. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up and knitted along the armholes, worked in the round on double-pointed needles or on a circular needle using the Magic Loop technique. Finally, the rib edge at the neckline is worked from picked-up stitches and folded double. Melange Sweater Junior is worked in two strands of yarn in contrasting colors to achieve the marled or “mélange” color.

Start by knitting a swatch to determine which size needle gives you the correct gauge. 

Size guide

Melange Sweater Junior is designed to have approx. 20 cm [8 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be approx. 20 cm [8 inches] larger in circumference than the chest measurement. The sizes 1-2 (2-3) 3-4 (4-5) 5-6 (6-7) 7-8 (8-9) 9-10 (10-11) 11-12 (12-13) 13-14 years are designed to fit a chest circumference of approx. 53 (54) 56 (57) 59 (62) 64 (68) 72 (75) 78 (80) 82 cm [20¾ (21¼) 22 (22¾) 23½ (24¼) 25 (26¾) 28¼ (29¾) 30½ (31½) 32¼ inches]. The measurements for the finished garment are listed on the front page of the pattern (please note that these measurements are only achieved if the sweater is knitted in the correct gauge). If you/the recipient measures 62 cm [24¼ inches] around the chest, you should knit a size 6-7 years. Size 6-7 years has a chest circumference of 82 cm [32¼ inches] which will, in this example, give 20 cm [8 inches] of positive ease.

If the measured chest circumference deviates from the age guide, you can adjust the lengths to the person you’re knitting for. The same applies if the child is short/taller than average.
