Women’s sweater knitting kit

The Beniste is a revisited sailor jumper with an added touch of fantasy thanks to its unique set of stripes; the gold streaks put a lovely twist on such a timeless design. The cut is straight and slopes down to the hips with a round neck and raglan sleeves for optimal comfort. The Beniste jumper is knitted with Luxor, a 100% natural yarn made up of a blend of alpaca, merino, and cotton. This slightly fuzzy yarn is very durable and thin out easily. You can wear the Beniste sweater with canvas or crepe pants for a formal outfit, or with jeans or a pencil skirt for a more casual look.

How to knit this sweater?

The Beniste is knitted with 5 mm needles. You must know these techniques to knit this jumper:

  • Knit and purl stitches
  • Increase and decrease stitches
  • Pick up stitches
  • Cast off and assemble

You can achieve this project with ease if you know these techniques. However, beginners with some knitting experience may require help with some steps such as picking up stitches or assembly.

Customise your sweater

You can choose between several colour stripes to go with the natural base. Pick the one that suits you and select the size you wish to knit. Refer to the size guide if necessary.

The knitting kit

Everything you need to knit the Beniste jumper comes in a kit: Luxor balls of yarn, a spool of gold Stella thread, knitting needles (optional), a 24 karats finely gilded decorative heart charm, and a knitting pattern with step-by-step instructions and annotated figures for sizes S, M, L, and XL. You will also need a few extra tools to knit this design such as a pair of scissors, a tape measure, a yarn needle, and two stitch holders (optional). Visit our haberdashery page to purchase your knitting supplies.

How to care for your knitwear?

The Luxor yarn is a high-end natural knitting yarn. Take good care of your jumper to keep it for as long as possible. Spread out washes and refrain from wearing it several days in a row. Air it regularly to get rid of smells. Handwash your garment or in a washer equipped with a handwash cycle. The water temperature must remain constant and under 30°C. Use gentle washing products and rinse with clear water but do not add softeners. Remove excess water without wringing or spin dry it in the washer under 900 rpm. Leave your jumper to dry on flat surface in a well ventillated space but do not put in the dryer. Iron your garment at medium heat and use a press cloth ideally. Store your garment away from dust in an unconfined space. Change its location regularly to prevent creasing.
