This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

note: I wear a size S - this sweater is extremely oversized!

This sweater is worked in a total of 8 pieces: 6 parts for the body, and the 2 sleeves.

Because the seams run in the center of the upper part of the front and back, and the two parts are sewn one on the right side of the fabric and the other one on the wrong side of the fabric, means that the two front parts are knitted exactly the same, and so the two back parts.

I casted on with ravel cord and w/y, then e-wrapped cast on with my working yarn.

The yarn is an extremely fine linen tweed (mystery linen, since there was no sticker on the cone!) that has the tendency to twist like crazy.
The multiple seams allowed me to block it and un-twist it.

I don’t have the yardage for this sweater, but the weight is about 250 grams.

The bottom edge of the two large rectangular bases for the front and back and the edge of the sleeves are in garter stitch (I had to practice the use of my garter bar! I only did 8 rows, and that was enough!)

The neckline is also in garter stitch - which I actually hand-knitted, in the round, using size 0 - 2mm circular needles.
