Ladies Lunch Dates Sweater

Whether you’re popping out for a causal coffee date with friends or heading out on a date night with your favourite person the Ladies Lunch Dates Sweater has you covered. Knit in a sumptuous woolly blend and paired with jeans and boots for a casual look or try knitting it in a luxurious fibre blend such as baby camel and silk or pure silk and pair with tailored slacks and heels for an evening out.

This deep v-neck sweater looks great as a top on its own showing a little skin or layered over a collared shirt for a more office ready look.

I encourage you to play with both fibre content and colour combinations for infinite possibilities.

Sample uses Silky Humps in the colours Fall, Wizz Fizz, Stunning and Swamp Water. Julie is wearing size 6 - 120cm, her upper bust measurement is 99cm giving her 21cm of ease.

Techniques used in this design include a provisional cast on, some basic intarsia, a twincrease style increase and knitting in the round. Don't let any of this worry you, I've linked to videos to help you on your way.

Recommended ease is 10-20cm but choose a size that gives you the fit you prefer.
I encourage you to play around with not only colour, but colour placement. There’s no rule that says you have to follow a specific sequence for your stripes, each one of my samples is different and they each give off a very different vibe.

Needles: 3.25mm circular needles

Yarn Requirement: This design uses 4ply/fingering weight yarn that is 400m per 100g (based on Harnie Hoolie’s Designs Silky Humps). If substituting yarn look for one that is 360-400m per 100g.
If substituting yarn look for one that is 360-400m per 100g.

For your main colour (used for the ribbing and narrow stripes), you’ll need:

Metres - (550, 564, 579, 595) [616, 634, 660, 675] {691, 715, 732, 756} (783, 800, 825, 848)

Yards - (601, 616, 633, 650) [673, 693, 721, 738] {755, 793, 800, 826} (856, 874, 902, 927)

You’ll also need some contrast colour/s (used for the wide stripes. Divide this number of meters/yards by the number of colours you want to use (EG: 7 contrast colours in size 6 requires approx.181mm of each colour).

Metres - (1100, 1128, 1159, 1191) [1232, 1268, 1320, 1351] {1382, 1430, 1464, 1513} (1566, 1600, 1651, 1696)

Note that you can use as many colours as you like for your contrast colour, so divide this number by how many colours you want to use to see how much of each colour you need.
