This sweater is knitted bottom up.
Size guide: This sweater is knitted in sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL).
Chest measurement (of the sweater): 89 (97) 105 (115) 127 (139) cm.
Length: 44 (46) 50 (56) 58 (60) cm. The sweater expands 5 cm in its length when wearing it.
The sweater should have a positive ease of around 5-15 cm bigger than your chest measurement, which means the sweater is a bit loose. The sizes are equivalent to a chest measurement of:
80-84 (84-92) 92-100 (100-110) 110-122 (122-134) cm.
Measure yourself around your chest or the widest part of your torso to find the size that fits you the best.
I am a size S, and in the picture I am wearing a size XS. My sweater is also cropped, as I have knitted it 6 cm shorter than the original size.
Circular needle 10,00 mm 80 cm
Circular needle 10,00 mm 40 cm

This sweater is knitted in Mayflower by Molly. You will need 8 (9) 10 (11) 16 (18) balls in total, which is equivalent to 1200 (1350) 1500 (1500) 2400 (2700) grams for a single-colored sweater. If you wish for a two-colored sweater, read more about the yarn consumption under “change of color”.
I have knitted the sweater in the colors 12 - Light Blue and 14 - Light Purple.
Change of color:
If you want your sweater in two colors, you have to shift color after 5 (4) 5 (5) 6 (6) rows of bubbles on the body of the sweater, making the sweater look like the sweater in the picture. The yarn consumption will be:
4 (5) 5 (6) 7 (9) balls for the color in the top part of the sweater and 5 (5) 6 (6) 9 (9) balls for the lower part of the sweater.
The change of color will be on the 6th or 12th round.
When knitting with wool it is important to remember that it won’t tolerate normal machine wash or tumble drying. Instead, hand wash with lukewarm water. Wash with wool soap or normal hair shampoo. Your knit is to be dried flat on towels.
This sweater has a gauge of 8 stitches x 12 rows pr. 10 x 10 cm in bubble pattern.
