This feather-light jumper is knitted seamlessly from the top down.
The yoke is shaped with short rows so that the back will be higher than the front.
The construction is quite easy:
Raglan sleeves, a wide boat neck and fitted sleeves balance out the wide A-shaped bottom so that the finished garment has both elegance and drape.
A lot of textured details make this jumper a garment that is fun to knit and interesting to wear! There are cables at the shoulders, enclosed by a triangle of purls, and also at the sides, where they flare out at your natural waist to follow a textured curve of double moss stitch on the front and on the back.
This form and stitch reminded me of the lattice you find sometimes on doors in Morocco!
The same pattern is repeated at the cuff of the sleeves, which are double-sided so that you can easily fold them up or down.
