Ready-to-knit women’s sweater
The Perros sweater is made with Top Hair, a fluffy yarn made from mohair and silk that brings lightness and softness to the garment while yielding a gentle warmth. It’s a thick mohair, that makes tight stitches that aren’t loose. The cut is straight with set-in sleeves and a slightly wide round neck. A set of stripes adorn the back, front, and cuffs while the sleeves are plain. You can go for a casual look with the Perros on top of canvas trousers, jeans, or even a pencil skirt.
How to knit this sweater?
The Perros sweater is knitted with 5 mm needles. To knit it, you must know how to:
- Knit and purl stitches
- Increase and decrease stitches
- Pick up stitches
- Cast off and assemble
You can attempt knitting this piece if you master these techniques. Beginners with some knitting experience may require some assistance with picking up stitches and assembling.
The Perros jumper is available in different colour stripes. Pick the colour that suits you best and select the size you wish to knit. Refer to the size guide if necessary.
The knitting kit

Taking good care of your sweater is the key to preserving it for a long time. Spread out washes and avoid wearing your sweater several days in a row. Air it regularly to get rid of smells. Handwash your sweater or put it in a washer with a handwash cycle. The water temperature must be constant and under 30°C. Use gentle washing products in small quantities and refrain from using softeners. Rinse with clear water and squeeze excess water out without wringing. You may also spin it in the washer under 900 rpm. Dry on a flat surface in a well-ventilated location but do not put it in the dryer. Store your sweater in an unconfined space away from dust.
