ANEIRA MINIKINS
GIRL’S CLASSIC TOP DOWN COLOURWORK SWEATER
By Rhiannon Owens

CONSTRUCTION AND DESIGN
This classic sweater is worked top down with a seamless circular yoke and a pretty colourwork design that is perfect for colourwork beginners with easy to follow repeats and no long floats. The hem and sleeves are finished with a folded hem for a clean and professional finish. The sleeves are shaped with a gentle puff at the wrists for a feminine touch, the body is worked without shaping for a relaxed fit that pairs well with many silhouettes. The result is a sweater that is truly versatile, cosy and pretty.

The body of this sweater is worked seamlessly, in the round. Short Row shaping at the neck results in a slightly lower neckline at the front for a better fit. The pattern includes directions for knitting the sleeves flat or in the round.
