Difficulty level

Difficulty level: 2⭐️ out of 5⭐️

Description of difficulty levels

1⭐️ out of 5⭐️

Patterns marked with 1⭐️ are suitable for beginners, there are help videos and no difficult techniques.


2⭐️ out of 5⭐️

Patterns marked with 2⭐️ are suitable for the slightly experienced knitter who still doesn't want difficult techniques but a project with a bit more detail.


3-, 4- and 5⭐️ out of 5⭐️

I don't yet have patterns that complicated or full of difficult techniques if these levels apply. They are simply there so that the knitter can put the degrees of difficulty into perspective.

Needles and knitting tension


Circular needles 8 and 7 for I-cord (60, 80 or 100 cm – depending on growing number of stitches)

Knitting tension

1 tråd på pind 8 i glatstrik: 10 x 10 cm = 15 m x 20 p efter vask og tørring (før vask: 16 m x 21 p)

For a denser look (less transparent):

You can also choose to knit Aurora in two strands of baby merino on needle 8 instead of one, to achieve a tighter stitch image. Make a knitting test in advance, which you wash and finally measure whether it meets the knitting tension of 15 sts x 20 rows (I have tested it, and it can be done). Be aware that you will probably need twice as much yarn.

Sizes and measurements

XS (S) M (L) XL
Chest circumference (widest place, measured on own body): 80-84 (85-90) 91-95 (96-100) 101-110 cm


Ease (negative): 5-10 cm, ie. 5-10 cm is drawn from your measurements on your own body, after which you choose the circumference below that fits these measurements.

Measurements of work

Chest circumference: 76 (80) 84 (88) 92 cm

Shoulder width: 40 (40) 41 (41) 42 cm

Hip circumference: 84 (88) 92 (96) 100 cm

Length of work: 78 (82) 82 (84) 86 cm

The pattern is made so that the work must be washed after it is completed. However, if you are worried about the work changing too much in size during washing, you can choose to go one size down for an even tighter fit.

My AuroraDress in the picture above is knitted in a size small: my measurements are 90 cm around the chest, 76 cm around the waist, and 99 cm around the hip.


250 (250) 300 (300) 350 g Drops Baby Merino (50 g = 175 m) if the sweater is knitted in only one color. If you want to add another color to the edges, use an additional 50 g = 1 ball.

Colour code: Drops 46 Rose (Unicolor) for body and 17 Beige (Mix) for the i-cord.

Washing instructions

Baby merino is superwash-treated yarn, which i.a. means that the yarn is very elastic, especially during washing. It is therefore important that the yarn is washed carefully so that the work does not stretch out of shape, watch, and follow this video (turn subtitles on and in the settings there’s a button which allows you to automatically translate my subtitles to your own language):

Recommended to machine wash in a laundry bag: delicate wash, 40 degrees at 600 revolutions or lower. However, the video also shows hand washing.

!!Feel free to add a thin thread to maintain the shape, e.g. a thread of mohair!!

Note! This is NOT a physical product, but a knitting pattern - purchase at your own risk! Remember to check the lauguage before buying.
