This is a relatively simple top-down stockinette sweater, using the contiguous construction method to create a set-in-sleeve-look seamlessly. If you are new to this method it can be a bit daunting and confusing. So I have included some more descriptive boxes throughout the pattern to help you along.

The length is easy to adapt, and the sweater features a high-low hem. That is, the body is longer at the back than at the front. This is something you can easily omit, should you wish to. Lastly, the sleeves are designed to be on the longer side.

I hope you will enjoy this pattern, and if you need any help or have any suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me in my Ravelry group ‘Skeindeer Knits’. It’s the best place for swift support. Happy knitting!
