Needles: The needle size required to meet gauge can vary quite widely depending on your knitting style. The range used by other is 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!
Recommended Size for Main Needle: US 3 (3.25mm) circular needles for the body and sleeves
Recommended 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
4" = 22 stitches x 26-28 rows 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) Example photos show Tegna worn with 8” of positive ease.

About the Yarn:
With your kit you have a choice between Harvest Fingering, a solid hank, hand dyed with natural organic materials to create natural earthy colors. Because of the unique natural materials use for this yarn, colors are sometime subject to variation as each harvest is different. Or you can choose a Gradient Kit and play with how you blend your sweater from light to dark.
Both yarns are 100% Extrafine Merino Wool. To care for your Tegna you will be able to machine wash it on a gentle cycle in cool water and lay it flat to dry.
Price and how much yarn is included will vary depending on your yarn and sizing choices:
XS-M = 1 Gradient Set/2 Hanks of Harvest
L-3XL = 2 Gradient Sets/3 Hanks of Harvest
