Kleo is designed to have an oversized fit. When choosing which size to knit, measure the circumference of the widest part of your body (hip or bust) and add a positive ease of 25 cm [10 in], or preferred ease, to that number. Compare your result with the garment circumference and choose the closest size. If you fall between sizes, size up or down according to your own preference.

The sizes 1 (2) 3 (4) 5 (6) 7 (8) 9 are equivalent to sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL. They correspond to the body circumference (hip or bust) of approximately 80 (87.5) 97.5 (107.5) 117.5 (127.5) 137.5 (147.5) 157.5 cm [31.5 (34.5) 38.5 (42.25) 46.25 (50.25) 54.25 (58) 62 in]

In stockinette using 5 mm [US 8] needles: 15 sts x 25 rows = 10 x 10 cm [4 x 4 in] Worked flat, measured after blocking.

If you tend to have large differences in your knitting tension between flat vs round, it is smart to work a test swatch also in the round and adjust the needle size if needed to keep the gauge consistent.



5 mm [US 8] / 80 cm [32 in] circular needles

4 mm [US 6] / 40 & 80 cm [16 & 32 in] circular needles



- Stitch markers (3)

- Stitch holders (E.g. spare cable/ scrap yarn)

- Row counter (Tip: I use a free App called ‘Minimalist Stitch Counter’)

- Tapestry needle for weaving in the ends 



You will start by casting on stitches for the back and placing two stitch markers to indicate the placement of the back neck.

From there, the back is worked flat until the length reaches the bottom of the armholes.

Next, you will pick up stitches from the shoulder edges and work the shoulders separately in flat, while shaping the front neck.

New stitches are casted on for the bottom of the front neck, the shoulders are joined and the front is worked in flat until the length reaches the bottom of the armholes.

From there, the front and back are joined and the rest of the body is worked in the round and finished with a 1:1 ribbed hem.

New stitches will be picked up around the armholes and the sleeves are worked separately in the round, and finished with 1:1 ribbed cuffs.

The final step is picking up stitches from the neck opening and working the folded neckband in 1:1 ribbing.

To finish, weave in the ends and block your sweater with your preferred blocking method.


Enjoy this pattern and happy knitting!
