Beautiful striped sweater, worked seamlessly from top down. At the beginning, the upper body is worked back and forth until the neckline shaping is complete. The rest of the sweater is worked in the round.
The body is slightly A-shaped and the edges are finished with a Garter rib. The pattern includes a photo tutorial for lifted increases.
Please note that the length of the CC1 section in the upper body (color Kajo in sample photo) gets gradually longer as the sizes go up.
Have fun choosing your favorite color combination!
