Bettan Cardigan is a straight and short cardigan model with a narrow fit over the shoulders. An all over structure pattern decorates an otherwise plain design. Both the body and the sleeves are knitted from the bottom up. The body is worked in one piece back and forth until reaching the underarm, where the work is divided in back and fronts. Thereafter, the parts are worked together in one piece – a seamless construction. Raglan decreases shape the top of the sweater.

The pattern is written for sizes 83.5, 92, 100.5, 108.5, 117, 125.5 and 133.5 cm (finished chest measurement). The model can be knitted with both a slimmer or looser fit. If worn with more positive ease, the depth of the yoke will be greater and the sleeve holes deeper.


Bettan är en rak, kort koftmodell med ett heltäckande strukturmönster. Både kropp och ärmar stickas nerifrån och upp. Ärmarna stickas sedan samman med kroppen och ingen montering krävs. Okpartiet formas med raglanminskningar.

Mönstret finns i storlekarna 83,5; 92; 100,5; 108,5; 117; 125,5 och 133,5 cm (bröstmått på färdigt plagg). Modellen kan stickas med en lösare eller tightare passform. Om tröjan bärs med stor rörelsevidd blir oket och ärmhålen djupare.
