Holsten is an easy to wear every day sweater with a fun and uncommon color work that highlights only one sleeve like a bust sash.

The sweater’s wrong side is meant to be facing out, accentuate the increase “seams” form the contiguous saddle shoulder and sleeves down to the body waist shaping. ?(I always love visible knitting procedures).
But it’s also nice to be worn on the right side!

It is worked seamlessly top-down in one piece on the right side in Stst.
The pattern is written with no ease. If you like your sweater with some positiv ease (as shown in the sample with 1-2 in (ca 3-5cm)), please pick the according size.
