Ponchetta Kits


Sizes: 1 (2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
Note: On older versions of pattern, sizes were labeled as XS (S, M, L, XL, 2X). I’ve updated sizing labels since sizing of this piece can be different than traditional sweaters.

Finished Measurements:
Full Circumference: 49.5 (53.5, 58.5, 63.5, 68.5, 73.5)“/126 (68, 149, 161, 174, 187) cm
Side-to-side width: 24.75 (26.75, 29.25, 31.75, 34.25, 36.75)”/63 (68, 74, 81, 87, 93) cm

Picking a Size:
There are 2 ways you can pick a size, based on either your bust measurement, or your shoulder-to-shoulder measurement. I suggest considering both of these when deciding what size to pick. I encourage you to visit this link to learn additional details about Ponchetta and sizing:

BASED ON BUST: I suggest picking a size whose finished “Full Circumference” is approx 12-20”/30-51 cm larger than your actual bust circumference, depending on desired fit. Shown in size 1, being worn with 16”/41 cm of positive ease at bust.

BASED ON SHOULDER WIDTH: I suggest picking a size whose finished “Side-to-Side Width” is approx 5-10”/13-25 cm larger than your actual outer shoulder-to-outer shoulder width, depending on desired fit. Shown in size 1, being worn with 6.75”/17 cm of positive ease at shoulder width.

Gauge: 16 sts & 24 rws = 4”/10 cm in St st

Yarn: 3 (4, 4, 5, 5, 6) skeins Simplinatural by Hikoo (40% Merino, 40% Alpaca, 20% Silk; 100g = 183 yds), shown in colorway First Press Olive.

Needles and other supplies:
• US 8/5 mm 32”/80 cm circ needle, or size needed to obtain gauge.
• Extra US 8/5 mm circ in any length (or size used for gauge), to be used during Three Needle Bind-Off technique.
• US 7/4.5 mm 24”/60 cm circ needle, or 1 needle size smaller than that used to obtain gauge (for neck)
• 18 (18, 20, 22, 24, 26) stitch markers, in multiple colors.
