If you’re familiar with my style, you know that I love everything imperfect, asymmetrical, shredded, ripped - in one word not boring. So I came up with my variation of dropped stitch (as known in knitting) and called it a shred stitch.

The sweater itself is surprisingly light, airy and breathy. I couldn’t believe it myslef - I used just 83 grams of yarn for XS/S size. And that is for long sleeved sweater - how cool is that!
The feeling when wearing it is so nice, it feels like the sweater is hugging you.

You will find a FULL PHOTO TUTORIAL of shred stitch added to the pattern that will help you to learn the stitch and it’s increases/decreases easily.
