City Limits by Samantha Guerin Designs | City Limits is knit from the bottom up, in the round, with a graphic twisted stitch motif around the bottom half of the body. The front and back are separated at the armholes and worked flat. The shoulders are joined with a three needle bind off, then sleeves stitches are picked up and knit inside out to the cuffs. The neckline stitches are picked up and knit in half twisted rib.

Needle Size:

  • US 6 / 4mm or size needed to get gauge; 24” circular needle for body; 40” circular or DPN’s for sleeves
  • US 5 / 3.75 mm or one size smaller than needed to get gauge, 16” circular for neckline

Pattern Includes: Written & Charted Instructions

Skill Level: Intermediate

Other Details: Suggested Ease: 4-6” of positive ease. This is flexible and can be adjusted based on your personal preference. Please bear in mind that if you choose to knit a size with less than 4” ease, you may need to knit your sleeves longer than directed in the pattern. I don’t recommend less than 2” of ease, as drop shoulder sweaters get some of their arm mobility from ease in the fit.
