MORE INFORMATION

Construction and size guide


The sweater is worked seamlessly from the top down, and it is easy to adjust the length of the body and sleeves to tailor it to your body.

You cast on the back piece and work this back and forth in stockinette stitch with stripes, before you pick up and knit each shoulder. The shoulders are worked separately with short rows and increases. Then the shoulders are joined for the front piece. Afterwards, the front- and back piece is joined and the body is knitted in the round. The neckline ribbing is worked by picking up stitches. The sleeves are worked top-down by picking up stitches around the armhole.
