  • A unisex pullover, the pattern is sized for a finished chest measurement ranging from 43 inches (110cm) to 52.75 inches (134cm)
  • The pattern provides for a zippered neck although this can be omitted.
  • The sweater is knit in the round and the armholes are sewn and cut to insert the sleeves.
  • An errata page with additional graphs was included in the copy of the pattern from which this description was drawn.
  • The booklet also contains patterns for hats, mittens, socks and headbands and children's versions of the sweater and accessories.

A booklet with a version of this sweater and the one for kids (it may differ from the description above, but it is the same patterning) is available for free from Dale Garn through this link. The pattern itself is in Norwegian but it is mainly charts.
