The NEVER ENDING STORY jumper is a classically simple ribbed jumper with a V-neck. A basic piece that can be combined well, especially in spring/summer, and belongs in every wardrobe.
The jumper is knitted from top to bottom in a half-patent, with the "curly" side of the pattern being the front. The back is knitted first, then the left and right front. The back and front pieces are knitted in rows until the end of the armholes. Then join the two pieces together for the body and work in rounds. For the sleeves, pick up stitches from the side edges of the front and back pieces and also knit in rounds. Finally, the V-neck is edged with an I-cord.
Techniques used: Half-patent with turn-ups, left and right inclined double increases, left and right inclined double decreases, bind-off with the 'Italian method', I-cord bind-off.
Each wool pack contains the amount of yarn needed to complete the project in the selected size.

Circular knitting needle 3,5 mm / 40-50 cm and 80-100 cm.
Circular needle 3.0 mm / 80-100 cm for the cuffs on the sleeves (with magic loop method) and torso and the I-cord edging of the neckline, if necessary circular needle 2.5 mm for a tighter edging of the neckline.

If necessary, choose a different needle size to adjust the stitch samples.
For the quality 'Double Sunday', for example, it is recommended to go up half a needle size (4.0 mm), as pure new wool is slightly more elastic than yarns with cotton content and therefore the pattern contracts more.
Sewing needle, stitch gauge and safety pins to keep the stitches still, stitch markers if needed.
