Angelina, an elegant and lace sweater
1. The story behind Angelina, this elegant sweater
As you know, last year I designed Bobbles, a crop sweater for my daughter.
She was so won over by this sweater that she asked me for another one in a dark solid color.
I had a sweater quantity of Lang Yarns Angelina in my stash for a few months in a dark blue, such a wonder of softness, a silk thread with blown merino.
This is how Angelina was born.
2. The construction of this sweater
This is a sweater knitted from the top starting with about fifteen rows of 1*1 ribs with a circular yoke*. It is then embellished with a lace pattern that widens throughout the yoke.
Once this part is finished, you will attack the body which is knitted in a lace pattern.
You will finish the body with an 1*1 large ribbed edge. The sleeves are added afterwards and are finished with the same pattern as for the body and also end with an 1*1 large ribbed edge.
*If you want to know more about circular yokes, I posted a YouTube video in French one year ago.
3. What level is needed to knit Angelina Sweater?
This pattern is not complicated to knit and has been specially designed for beginners or comfort knitters (and others too!).
The most difficult point you might encounter are:
- to follow the two charts which are essential in the pattern (they are in a chart form but also in the form of written explanations).
4. Where to buy the pattern?
5. Which sizes are available for this elegant sweater?
1 [2, 3] [4, 5] [6, 7, 8]
The pattern is available from 95 cm to 155 cm finished chest measurements and it’s designed to fit with positive ease (+15 – +20 cm).
To understand the ease, I suggest you watch the video below (in French):
It can be worn with more or less ease (in these pictures, the ease is 15 cm for a size 3).
6. Which yarn and material are suggested for knitting this sweater?
The suggested yarn is Lang Yarns Angelina 150 m / 50 g (60% Silk, 40% Merino) 1100 (1153, 1208) (1329, 1437) (1669, 1727, 1885) m / 1202 (1261, 1321) (1454, 1572) (1825, 1889, 2062) yds or 8 (8, 9) (9, 10) (12, 12, 13) balls colorway 34.
Of course, you can also use another composition such as a twisted merino, a mixture of cotton and acrylic such as Scheepjes Stone Washed. But you can also consider using two threads together such as a merino fingering yarn with a mohair and silk or alpaca lace yarn.
Notions and needles required are as follow:
- 3.5 mm (US 4) 100 cm (40″) circ needle

Finally, why did I name this sweater Bobbles?
I don’t think you have to be a genius to know where this pattern’s name comes from! It is simply the name of the yarn I used, that, I think, suits the pattern.
I hope this sweater will make you fall for it and that this article will make you want to knit it.
