Leksak”, meaning ”toy” in Swedish, is an intriguing top-down pullover for both boys and girls! Slightly cropped sleeves that don’t get in the way, and with a different and decorative take on the front panel. Most of the garment is worked flat, but still manages to be completely seamless. A perfect sweater for keeping the little ones warm while playing! The pattern includes instructions for both the closed pullover and the open front tunic, as well as rough instructions for lacy crochet edgings.

    Hello. I’m making your yarn madness leksak tunic sweater. My yoke has no collar. I’ve finished the body but don’t understand where I should do my backward loop castons. The instructions say between the yoke and the collar. I don’t have a collar. Can you help me please? Thank you

      Hello Ondre! Since you’re making it without the collar, pick up sts along the whole front edge. Then you will do backward loop CO, folloowed by picking up on thw other side. I hope this helps!

    I really want to make the Leksak pattern for my little Granddaughter but am finding it extremely hard to understand the English instructions. Do you have other more clear instructions in English. So much is not said in the pattern like when the marker is place you have to guess that the stitch is the next knit stitch, or is it a slip stitch, etc. I do need help with this complicated pattern eventhough it is a short one.

      I’m currently cleaning up the pattern a bit and will send out an update later today. I’ve not had any feedback before about it being complicated, but I’ll definitely have a look at it!

    I too need an updated version…or cleaned up…as I am making a tunic for my granddaughter
    I do not understand where the collar is???

    1. madeleine avatar

      The pattern has already been updated. In the new version I removed the collar instruction, to clean up the pattern. To work a collar, however, you can just add a section of even garter stitch at the very beginning, after casting on.

    I have made this sweater twice and am working on a third with crochet edging…do I block before or after the crochet?

    1. madeleine avatar

      After works well! 🙂

    Hej! Varför är alla stora storlekar inom en och samma parentes? En storlek passar väl inte alla?

    1. madeleine avatar

      Det är bara för att det ska vara lättate att hitta sin storlek i texten. Något som bryter av den långa strängen med siffror

    I have the Leksak and am having a hard time the instructions for the front section. it says to turn the front 90 degree and stitch in garter stitch. How do I do that?

    1. madeleine avatar

      Hi! You will work up the right front, turn 90 degrees to work across the front neckline, and turn again to work down the left front 🙂

    Help I purchased the Leksak pattern and it was on my iPad but i didn’t print it. I’ve made 2 so far…and am in love with them but I wanted to print it and now I can’t find it on my iPad. Is it possible to have it resent?

      The purchase was made on September 21/23 2019 according to my credit card.I’m not sure if the email address i put down is the one it was sent to …I have 2 very similar so you should be able to tell from the one i put in these comments if its the same. One is a gmail and one is a yahoo account.

      1. madeleine avatar

        Of course! Can you send me your emails in text? For some reason I can’t show it from your comments.
