“Just like a sea anemone that anchors itself to the rocks to undulate with the rhythm of the ocean, the stitch pattern of this sweater starts at the base of the neckline to unfold gracefully, carried by the sea current all the way to the end.” - Louise

YARN
Louise Robert Design – MERINO WORSTED (100% merino; 218 yds (200 m) / 100g skein) 4 (4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 7, 7, 8, 9). Model shown in colour Ecume, size 4 and Cobalt, size 1.

NEEDLES

Circular needles of 4.5 mm (US #7) or 0.5 mm less than needle size to get gauge.

GAUGE - 18 sts & 24 rows = 4” (10cm) in stockinette stitch.

SIZES - 1 (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
Bust final circumference (to be worn with 2” to 4” of positive ease):

33 ¾ (37 ¼, 41 ¾, 43 ½, 46 ¼ , 49 ¾, 52 ½, 56, 58 ¾, 62 ¼) inches.

NOTES
This sweater is a circular yoke worked from the top down with an open ballerina style neckline style and ¾ sleeves but you may also opt for a full-length sleeve if you prefer this style. There is no extra length added for the back of the neck: the back and the front of this yoke are identical. I recommend using stitch markers between each pattern repeat. This sweater is designed to be worn with 2” to 4” of positive ease so you must choose a final size that is 2” to 4” larger than your actual bust circumference.

When working with hand-dyed yarns, even when they are all from the same dye lot, I recommend that you always alternate between two skeins at every round.
