This sweater is specially designed for persons sitting in wheelchair and persons that have difficulties in dressing themselves. There are bi-directional zippers on both sleeves, so that they can be opened both at the top and at the bottom. The front is a little shorter than on other sweaters (so that it will look better when seated) and a little longer in the back (to cover the lower back when seated).

The sweater is crocheted top-down, i.e. you start at the collar and work downwards. No parts are crocheted in the round.

This is also a fairly quick and easy pattern (compared with other sweaters of my design).
