Hack It Sweater

Hack It Sweater

With the Hack it Sweater you can design your very own jumper by making simple changes to the basic instructions. Different «hacks» described in the instructions help you to create exactly the expression you want in your jumper. The variations range from different yarn compositions to altered constructions on the sleeves and neckline. Only your imagination sets the limits here.


The basic instruction of the Hack It Sweater is a very classic raglan jumper, which has a slightly wider fit at the body. It is worked top down in Finull and Alpakka Lin by Rauma. First the ribbing is worked at the neckline. Then short rows are worked on the front piece, including raglan increases for the sleeves. Body and sleeves are worked with decreases, before all pieces end with ribbed cuffs.


Yarn: Finull and Alpakka Lin by Rauma.
Amount of yarn: 5 (5) 6 (7) 7 skeins/quality. Keep in mind that the use of different «hacks» might change the total amount of yarn. The quantity given here refers only to the basic instruction.

Measurements: Sweaters chest circumference approx. 109 (116) 123 (130) 137 cm. Sleeve width: 34 (38) 41 (45) 48. Inner sleeve length: approx. 49 cm (individually adjustable). Total length centre front below ribbing: approx. 54 (56) 58 (60) 62 cm (individually adjustable). Keep in mind that changes regarding the measurements may result in a different total amount of yarn.
Recommended needles: Circular needle 4 mm (80, 40 and 30 cm), 5 mm (80 and 40 cm). You can skip the short 40 and 30 cm circular needles, when working with dpns or the Magic loop method. The needle size is just a recommendation. Please knit a gauge swatch first!
