Célia is a lofty sweater meant to be worn everyday. The simple, oversized fit and the softness of the yarn make it a perfect casual wear. Work with a top-down construction, the sleeves stitches are placed on scrap yarns, as the crew neck shaping and the raglan increases are finished. The body is then worked in the round. The asymmetrical bottom hem, which adds interesting details, is shaped with short rows. The sleeves are then worked in the round and the neck band is picked up. The sweater is shown in size M, worn with 2” positive ease. All the abbreviations and the techniques used are mentioned and explained at the end of the pattern.
