Registration Deadline: Wednesday, May 9, 5:00 pm

Tegna is a stylish bottom up, seamless sweater with lace details great for warmer weather. Designed for any fingering weight yarn, this sweater would make a wonderful summer top in linen.
Yarn: Any fingering weight yarn that knits to the gauge.
Yardage: 760 (800, 860, 1020, 1160, 1240, 1300) yards
NOTE! In testing it was found that the needle size required to meet gauge varied quite widely depending on yarn used and knitter’s personal style. The range used by testers was US 3 (3.25mm) through US 7 (4.5mm) for the main body, so knitting a gauge swatch is absolutely critical to determine needle size and ensure proper fit of the garment!
Main Needle: US 3 (3.25mm) circular needles for the body and sleeves
Neck and Sleeve Hem Needle: US 2 (2.75mm) circular needles for the neckband and sleeve hem, or one size smaller than main body needle
Other Notions: Stitch markers, stitch holders (or scrap yarn), tapestry needle, an extra needle for 3- needle-bind off
Gauge: 22 sts and 26-28 rows over 4” in stockinette after washing and blocking on larger needles
This sweater is designed to be slightly oversized, with approximately 5-10” of positive ease around the bust. The sleeves are fitted, so make sure you pay attention to the sleeve circumference when choosing your size. (Schematic is provided in the pattern) Sample shown is worn with 8” of positive ease.
XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL) finished circ. at bust: 35.5” (38”, 43.25”, 48.25”, 53.5”, 58.5”, 63.5”)
