Knit from the bottom up, this sweater has modified raglan shaping and short rows to create seamless set in sleeves.

The edges are all hemmed in a finer yarn, in order to reduce bulk. You will need a smaller needle size for the facings, as well as a skein of lace or sock weight yarn for the facings. I used a color that matched the aquarella perfectly, but a contrasting color would be fun. Less than one skein is needed for the facings, so if you have a half ball, use it!

The finished bust sizes are: 32 (36, 40, 44, 48, 52) inches, and they need: 6 (7, 7, 8, 8, 9) skeins of Aquarella. This sweater is shorter, if you like all your sweaters long you may want an additional skein.

There is a modest amount of waist shaping.
