Description

Ya’ar is a stylish and elegant design. The pattern includes directions for both long and short sleeves, making this the perfect knit for every season. Ya’ar is designed with Autumn and Indigo’s Classic Sport, a 100% sw merino sport weight yarn, which knits up beautifully and gives the garment a fabulous drape. Ya’ar is worked in the round from the bottom up, then divided at the armholes to work front and back separately. The sleeves are worked in the round by picking up stitches around the armhole. Ya’ar is designed to have some negative ease around the bust. After finishing the lace section at the bottom, it’s worked up rather quickly because there are hardly any purl rows.

SIZES

1 (2, 3, 4) [5, 6, 7] (8, 9, 10)

Measurements:

The recommended ease for this design is approx. 5 cm (2 inch) of negative ease. The measurements below are the finished garment measurements, not your own. Please note: D and E, the end of sleeve circumferences for the upper arm and wrist, are quite stretchy and supposed to have a tight fit around your upper arm or wrist.

A = Chest circumference
B = Armhole depth
C = Armpit to hip length
D = End of sleeve width (circumference) for upper arm (short sleeved version)
E = End of sleeve width (circumference) for wrist (long sleeved version)
F = Overall length

MATERIALS:

Needles: 4 mm circular needle (US size 6, UK size 8) or other needle size that matches gauge. I recommend using an 80 cm or 100 cm circular for the body, depending on the size you’re knitting. The sleeves can be worked on a 40 cm circular needle, but DPNs or the magic loop method may be easier for the smaller sizes.

3,5 mm 60 cm circular needle (US size 4, UK size 9) for the neck ribbing, and 3,5 mm DPNs or circular needle for the sleeve ribbing. You can use DPNs or the magic loop method with a longer circular needle.

Yarn: Sport weight yarn, approximately 1000, (1100, 1200, 1300) [1450, 1550, 1650] (1750, 1850, 1950) meters / 1100, (1210, 1320, 1430) [1600, 1700, 1810] (1920, 2030, 2150) yards for the long sleeved version. The short sleeved version requires approx. 150 meters / 165 yards less. I used Classic Sport from Autumn and Indigo, a 100% sw merino yarn that comes in 100 g skeins (à 300 meters / 328 yards). You can also use any other sport weight yarn that matches gauge.

GAUGE:

24 sts x 32 rows = 10 x 10 cm; on 4 mm needles in stockinette stitch.

DEADLINE:

March 8, 2020.

COMPENSATION:

When the pattern will be published, you will receive a free PDF copy of the final pattern once you've uploaded your project to Ravelry.

Unfortunately, I am unable to compensate you for your time or yarn in any other way. However, if you want to use the same yarn as the sample: Autumn and Indigo has generously offered a 25% discount code if you use this yarn for this test. You are by no means obligated to use the same yarn. You are free to use any other yarn that matches gauge. Less expensive alternatives include: Drops Alpaca, Drops BabyAlpaca Silk, Drops Baby Merino, Hobbii Baby Merino, Hobbii Highland Wool. Please note: I haven't personally checked the gauge in the listed alternatives, so I cannot guarantee with certainty that these will work.
