This design is knitted top-down seamlessly in stockinette stitch, holding 3 strands of yarn together.
The sweater is knitted partially flat and partially in the round. You will begin by knitting the back until the underarms. Then, separately knit each shoulder at the front, shaping the v-neckline at the same time. The front and the back will then be joined together and the rest of the body will be knitted. Next, you will pick up stitches along the armholes for working the set-in sleeves using the short rows. The neckband is knitted from picked-up stitches along the front and back of the sweater.
This sweater is designed to have approx. 15 cm [6 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 15 cm [8 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 [35.5 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 110 cm [43.25 inches] which, in the given example, would give you 25cm [9.75 inches] of positive ease.
Bust circumference: 105 ( 110) 115 cm [ 41.25 ( 43.25 ) 45.25 in ]
