Knitting lessons - chunky jumper

Who's up for some more knitting lessons? I've been kindly sponsored by Love Crafts to teach you more knitting lessons and I've chosen the Lempi Sweater by Novita Hygge (it's free to download here). It's a gorgeous, really chunky jumper which would be perfect for late summer evenings after a BBQ.




This is an easy knit, and you'll learn a new skill - to knit in the round (it's way easier than you'd think)

Here's what you'll need



Choose the size you'll need:

Size
XS
S
M
L
XL
XXL
Body circumference in CM
96
104
112
120
128
136
Amount of yarn in grams
750
800
850
900
1000
1100

Once you know your size, pick your super chunky yarn and buy enough! You can use the Novita Hygge yarn if you like. I chose to make it using MillaMia Naturally Soft Super Chunky in Sailor Blue and I'm making a size S so I've got 9 balls. A cheaper but lovely alternative is Paintbox Simply Super Chunky and if you were making size S, you'd need 8 balls. The benefit of the Paintbox yarn is that you can chuck it in the washing machine, but if you choose a real wool like I have, it will be lovely and soft. Pros and cons!

Other supplies you'll need

  • 8mm 80 cm long circular needle circular needle 
  • 8mm double pointed needles
  • 10 mm 60cm long circular needle 
  • Darning needle for sewing together
For my circular needles, I have an interchangable circular needle kit which can do lots of lengths and widths of needle. I love mine, which are from Hiya Hiya. They're slippery and sharp which suits my tension, but if you have a looser tension then I'd recommend looking for bamboo ones. Check out my Instagram highlights and IGTV and YouTube for some video introductions to knitting

If you can't decide what colour to do, you can check out the Ravelry page for this jumper to see how others have made it. 

Let me know if you have any questions. I'll give you all a week to gather your supplies and then like last time, I'll do some videos for how to follow this knitting pattern!

  3. The more porous the yarn is, the more dye it will absorb and the darker the color will be. Even the finest knitting yarns will have some variation in the spinning process that will be enough to insure minor variation even in the same batch. garn fri frak
