SUMMARY: This is a unisex crew-neck pullover with drop-shoulders and long sleeves. The body and sleeves are worked separately in the round and steeks are used to insert the sleeves into the body. The sweater features a large snowflake design band on the front and back upper chest area in a field of small diamonds and lic. The bottom ½ of the body is plain. The lower edge of the body is self-faced with a purl turning row and features several small pattern bands in the hem. These small pattern bands are used on the self-faced sleeve cuffs, the tops of the sleeves, the shoulders and the neckline. The upper sleeve pattern is a modification of the main snowflake design, appearing as large diamonds filled with small design bands, also in a field of small diamonds and lic. The bottom 1/3 of the sleeve is plain.

There is also a cap pattern. 12101 cap
