Red sweater in the style of oversize

Knitting an oversized red jumper. An interesting combination of patterns that are combined in this jumper oversize will appeal to fans of non-standard solutions.

Materials and tools:

  1. yarn (72% cotton, 18% silk, 10% polyamide; 100m / 50g) - 650 (700) 750 grams of red;
  2. long circular needles number 6;
  3. short circular needles number 5.

Pattern Description

Semi-patent pattern

An odd number of loops.  

Facial rows: edge, * 1 purl, 1 loop removed with 1 nakida, as purl, from * constantly repeat, 1 purl, edging.  

Purl rows: edging, 1 front, removed nakida loop to knit together in purl, from * constantly repeat, 1 front, edge.

Underlined headings (2 loops)

At the beginning of the row = edge, 1 purl, knit 3 loops together with a tilt to the left (1 loop to remove as the front one, 2 knit the loop with the front one, then stretch it through the removed loop);  

at the end of the row = knit up to 5 loops from the end, then 3 loops knit together front, 1 purl, hem.

Openwork pattern from the «Cos»

First, at 55 (59) 63 loops + 2 edge = knit acc. pattern. The outer 18 loops each form a "braid", the other loops between them are an openwork pattern. The diagram shows the front rows. In purses, knit all the loops by drawing or according to instructions, knit nakida purl.  

Start with 1 edge loop and loops before repeat A, repeat A 3 (4) 5 times, then perform 3 times 3 middle loops, repeat B 3 (4) 5 times, end with loops after repeat B and 1 edge. Perform the 1st-32th row 1 time, then logically continue the pattern upwards, for this purpose constantly repeat the 17-32th row and perform additions / expansions 20 more times in each 8th row according to. scheme.


Knit with needles No. 5 (an even number of loops) = alternately 1 front, 1 purl.

Density of knitting

17 p. x 34 p. = 10 x 10 cm, connected with a semi-patent pattern;  

15 pt. tracery x 29 p. = 10 x 10 cm;  

«spit» - 18 points + 1 edge = 8 cm.


In connection with knitted sleeves, knit on circular needles No. 6 in rows in the forward and reverse direction. Circular knitting needles # 5 use only for slats.

Due to the different density of knitting in front of a long back. When stapling the edges of the front, they are respectively set in position, resulting in a free fit in the oversize style.The front halves of the sleeves on the pattern are calculated from the density of knitting of the semi-patent pattern. As a result, a slight bevel of the sleeve / shoulder bevel is formed.


Size: 38/40 (42/44) 46/48

Knitting description


Type on the spokes 137 (143) 149 loops with a cross-shaped set and knit with a semi-patten pattern.


The outer 26 loops will then go to the front.

For a bevel, underlined on both sides in each 8th row from the initial row 13 x 2 p. = 85 (91) 97 p. Under 35 cm = 118 rows from the initial row, dial for both side hoses 1 x 1 p., then in each 2nd row 1 x 1 p., 1 x 5 p., 4 x 10 p. and 1 x 19 new loops and include in the pattern = 217 (223) 229 p. Through 56.5 cm = 192 rows (58 cm = 198 rows) 60 cm = 204 rows from the initial row leave all loops, while the average 53 (55) 57 sections form a throat, external 82 (84) 86 sections. &Mdash; shoulder / sleeve line.


Dial the needles 57 (61) 65 loops with a cruciform dial and knit with an openwork pattern of "la braid".

After 40.5 cm = 118 rows from the starting row in the next front row add for sleeves on both sides 1 x 1 st.and perform in the openwork pattern the 15th extension = 89 (93) 97 p. The remaining 65 loops of the additions of the sleeves should be performed, as on the back, and knit the added loops with a semi-patten pattern. At the same time, perform extensions in the openwork pattern 9 more times in every 8th row, but constantly compensate them in increments as follows: 1st loop «spit»knitwiththepreviousloopofthesemi-patentpatternandthelastloop"lait"braids»withthenextloopofthesemipatentpatterntogetherpurlrespectively; semi-patent pattern 1 will be reduced accordingly = 219 (223) 227 n. after the last increase for the sleeves. After 55 cm = 160 rows (56.5 cm = 164 rows) 58 cm = 168 rows from the initial row close the neckline for the average 43 points and finish both sides separately. For rounding along the inner edge, subtract 4 x 1 section in each 2nd row and 2 x 1 section in each 8th row. After 66 cm = 192 rows (67.5 cm = 196 rows) 69 cm = 200 rows leave the remaining 82 (84) 86 p. shoulders / sleeves.


The back and folded in front of the front side, left loops are arranged in parallel on 2 needles. To connect both parts, knit the loops of the shoulders / sleeves together with the purl, respectively, while closing them.Dial on the short circular needles 53 (55) 57 loops of the neck of the back, on the edge of the neck in front of the dial another 75 loops. For a strap to knit on all 128 (130) 132 loops of rubber band in circular rows. With a width of 3 cm, tightly close all the loops, as purl. Dial 50 (56) 62 loops on the short circular needles along the bottom edge of each sleeve, while setting the edges, and for the plank tie between edge 6 cm with an elastic band in rows in the forward and reverse directions. Then close the loop, as purl. Slanted side edges of the back and sewed in front, while suiting in front of each other.
