The Basic White Sweater has a minimalistic yet oversized design, perfect for casual outfits. It’s knit with premium yarn; a mix of alpaca, cotton, and merino.

This sweater is knitted top-down in stockinette stitch. First, the neckline and shoulders are shaped while knitting flat. Then the work is joined together to complete the shaping of the neckline. The yoke is continued in the round before it is divided into body and sleeves. Both sleeves and body are knitted in the round. The sweater is completed with neck ribbing using a seamless technique


The Basic White Sweater is designed to have approx. 32 cm [12.75 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 32 cm [12.75 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement.

Available sizes: S ( M ) L

The sizes S ( M ) L are designed to fit approx. bust circumference of 80-88 (88-96) 96-104 cm [ 31-35 (35-38) 38-41 in ]

Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size M. A size M sweater has a bust circumference of 124 cm [39.5 inches] which in the given example would give you 34 cm [13.5 inches] of positive ease.
