…wallowing in memories of a fantastic weekend in Paris…

this sweater is all about this weekend

Sylvie will offer yarn kits (with pattern) in her Etsy store
Pink memories is worked seamlessly from the top down. The front of the body is worked in Garter Stitch with a cute set-in pocket on the right side of the body. First the yoke is worked back and forth until neck shaping is complete. Then the yoke is worked in the round with raglan increases. When the yoke shaping is complete, the sleeve sts are placed on hold and the underarm sts are cast on, using your preferred cast on method. Then the body is worked in the round to the ribbing with an A-line shaping. Then sleeve sts are picked up again to work the extra-long sleeves top down in the round to the end. As this jumper is worked from the top down it is advisable to try it on from time to time to check the length and overall fit. The length and width of the yoke are easily adjustable by adding/ reducing increases, or adding/ reducing underarm sts
