    Piia Maria is wearing an S size sweater in the pictures (size 36/38). If you want a slightly looser knit, choose a larger size. This sweater is also lovely in an over-sized model.

    The Usva sweater in the pictures is made from artisan yarn spun in our spinning mill and designed specifically for knitting.

    Instructions for the sweater - Vuono
    Regular price €10,00
    /
    Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.


    ONLY AVAILABLE IN FINNISH!

    The Vuono sweater is designed to be used for life's adventures!

    This easy instruction is also suitable for beginners.

    A wonderfully warm unisex sweater is suitable for both men and women. The blouse has a trendy zipper collar, under which the collared shirt also looks stylish. If you love polo shirts, leave out the zipper. Both implementation methods are taken into account in the instructions.

    The Vuono sweater is knitted from DK-strength 3-strand alpaca yarn with 5 mm needles. The blouse has rounded raglan sleeves with a short saddle on the shoulder. This makes the blouse a particularly good fit even for men with shoulders. The hem and sleeves of the Vuono sweater are knitted in the round up to the arms. In Kaorokke, the pieces are combined. Starting from the zipper slit, the upper part is knitted flat.

    Tip: You can get a fluffier version of the sweater by choosing Suri alpaca yarn instead of 3-strand alpaca yarn.

    Sizes: XS-SML-XL-XXL

    Thread flow:

    - 3-strand Alpaca yarn: 350-400-450-500-550-600 g or
    - Suri alpaca yarn: 200-250-300-350-400-450 g

    Needles: 5 mm and 4.5 mm

    Cardigan instructions - Naava
    Regular price €10,00
    /
    Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.


    ONLY AVAILABLE IN FINNISH!

    The long and comfortable Naava cardigan is knitted with two yarns.

    Naava is a classic and timeless cardigan. The raglan-sleeved basic jacket will be enough fun for years to come. Naava's model is uncomplicated and relaxed, but because of its luxurious material it is nevertheless very special. Descriptively, the jacket was named Naava. It's like the quiet peace of our disappearing primeval forests. A little rough and shaggy, but so very precious in all his everyday life.

    The narrow and straight hem of the Naava jacket is knitted in one piece up to the arms. Pockets that are subsequently embedded are knitted into the hem. The sleeves are knitted with double pointed needles or a long circular needle, looping. Finally, at the top, the pieces are connected.

    The jacket is knitted from sweetly soft and fluffy Suri alpaca yarn together with thin single-strand Alpaca/Wild silk. With combinations of different colors, you can create a wonderfully mottled knitted surface according to your own taste. The jacket is finished with lovely wooden buttons.

    Sizes: XS-SML-XL

    Materials:


    Thread flow:
    Suri Alpaca 250-300-350-400-400 g
    Alpaca/Wild silk 200-250-300-300-350 g

    Please note that the strength of Alpaca/Wild silk varies slightly from color to color. That's why the skeins of some colors have more yarn per meter than other colors. From the point of view of the instructions and knitting, this is irrelevant. The yarn flow is defined so that there is enough yarn in all colors. From the thinnest threads, depending on the type of handwork, one skein may be left over. Full and unopened skeins can be returned.

    Needles: 5 mm and 4.5 mm circular needles, length 80 cm and double pointed needles 5 mm and 4.5 mm.
    Density: 16 sts = 10 cm stockinette stitch on thicker needles, knitted together with both yarns.
    Other accessories: 7 buttons and loop markers.

    Garment dimensions:
    Full length in the middle of the back 91-94-95-96-98 cm.
    Body and hem circumference when the jacket is closed 98-106-114-122-130 cm.
    Inner sleeve length 48-49-49-50-51 cm.

    Note! The measurements are the measurements of the finished garment after wetting/wetting. Getting wet stretches the overall length of the coat by 5-7 cm. Elongation is taken into account in the dimensions of the formula.

    Choose a size that is 10-20 cm bigger than your own chest circumference. The model pieces in the pictures are knitted in size S and the model size is 36. Size XS is suitable for a teenage child and corresponds to sizes 152-164 cm.

    The instructions are delivered to you as a downloadable print version. You can buy printed instructions in the shop.

    Kaunotar pattern, knit two braided vests with the same pattern.

    Are you looking for a slightly more challenging knitting project, the end result of which charms with its beauty?

    Beauty is your choice then. Kaunottare has two absolutely wonderful cardigan models in the same instructions.

    Kaunotattare was designed by Piia Maria Pekkanen. The yarns in the instructions use domestic, ethical and untreated artisanal yarns from Ruukki Kehräämö.

    Beauty 1 is knitted from delicate and soft angora yarn (brown in the picture). Its neckline is open and the length is designed to fall on the hips. Beauty 2 is waist-length and has a high polo collar added (white in the picture). Beauty 2 is knitted from 100% alpaca yarn.

    In both Kaunottari, the basic knitting technique is the same, and skillful knitters can combine models to create a whole of their own. Remember to reserve enough yarn for the sweater, because the yarn lots are unique and therefore it may not be possible to find yarn of exactly the same shade later.

    Threads Beauty 1:

    Threads Beauty 2:

    Sizes: XS-SML-XL/XXL

    Yarn count: 200-300-300-300-400 g
    (In angora yarn, 200 g is enough for size S, if the meters are at least 400 m/100 g)

    Needles: 4.5 mm and 4 mm circular needles (lengths 80 cm and 40 cm)

    The instructions are delivered to you as a downloadable print version. You can buy printed instructions in the shop.

    Hobo vest for women and men.

    When a teenage boy asks his mother to knit a slipover, the signs are clear. This all-time classic has made a comeback. Cardigans are in fashion again! The stroller was designed by Ateljee Piia Maria in collaboration with Ruukki Kehräämö.
