Orbits is the fourth design in my Einaudi Collection – a collection of knitwear patterns inspired by pieces of music written by Ludovico Einaudi. Orbits features stranded colourwork through the majority of the yoke and into the upper body and sleeves, with patterns that capture the mysterious, repetitive yet delicate essence of the music.

SAMPLE
The wearer is 5’10” in height with a chest circumference of 37”/ 92.5cm. The sample is size L, giving the wearer 8” / 20cm positive ease at the chest. An extra 1” / 2.5cm have been worked into the sleeves and body to allow for the wearer’s height.

SIZING GUIDE
This garment is graded into sizes XS (S, M, L, XL) (2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL). Recommended positive ease is 4-8” / 10-20cm at the chest.
Chest Circumference: 36 (39, 42, 45, 51) (54, 60, 63, 66)“ / 90 (97.5, 105, 112.5, 127.5) (135, 150, 157.5, 165) cm.

GAUGE
Using 3.25mm / US size 3 needles, or needle size required to meet gauge, 24 stitches over 38 rounds in stockinette stitch, blocked, creates a 4x4”/10x10cm square.

YARN
The sample has been worked using Kokon Yarn’s 100% Superwash Merino fingering-weight base (320m / 350yds per 100g) using colourway Moon as the main colour and Space as the contrast colour.
