Description

Sailor sweater knitting kit

The Lichia is a classic sailor jumper with the addition of a fantasy stitch yoke that brings a touch of whimsy and feminine elegance. The thin horizontal stripes on the body contrast with the grid pattern on the yoke evocative of the slightly open-knit structure of fishing nets. Be it for a casual look or a more formal outfit, you can wear this marine jumper with matching canvas pants, jeans, shorts, or a skirt.

Easy-to-knit

The Lichia sailor jumper is knitted with 3,5 mm needles. You must know these techniques to make it:

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

You can start this project if you know these techniques. Beginners with some knitting experience, can attempt this pattern but may require assistance. We recommend practicing fantasy stitches, especially for the decreases at the neck and shoulders. Knitting a few rows, with the help of the tips given in the knitting pattern, should help find your bearings.

Customise your sailor sweater

Several colour combinations are available, besides the classic white and navy blue. If none of the combinations suit you, choose your own among the Diam yarn colours and make mention of it in your order. Select the size that suits you best and consult our size guide if need be.

The knitting kit

Everything you need to knit this sailor jumper is included in the kit: balls of merino yarn, knitting needles (optional), a decorative heart-shaped charm, and a knitting pattern for all sizes between S and XL. Click on “no needles” if you do not want them or on “3,5 mm” to include them in your order. You will also need a few extra tools to knit the Lichia sweater such as a pair of scissors, two stich holders, a tape measure, and a yarn needle for the assembly. Visit our Haberdashery page to purchase quality knitting supplies.

Care for your sailor sweater

The Diam yarn is made from pure high-quality superfine merino wool. Take good care of your garment to preserve it from wear and tear. Spread out washes and avoid wearing your jumper several days in a row even when you just can’t get enough of it! Hand wash your jumper with a constant water temperature below 30°C or in a washer with a handwash cycle for wool. Use washing products in small quantities and do not add softeners. Remove excess water without wringing and leave the garment to dry on a flat surface in a well-ventilated space. Iron your garment using the wool setting. Store it on a flat surface in an unconfined space and change its position regularly to prevent creasing.
