Necessity is the mother of invention – the triangle sleeve was invented to stretch 3 skeins to make a sweater. It worked!

Sweatrrr is a fun, funky, sligthly tailored but not too clingy sweater knitted all in one go from the cast-on to the hem, using the same Ziggurat Top-Down Tricnique as Simple, Koronki, Tric, well all of my sweaters now!

Small intarsia squares (aka as blobs) run down centre back and front.
The contrasting rolled neck is knitted last.
The set-in sleeves are also knitted top-down and in the round using either Magic Loop or two circs.
A bold triangle insert is knitted into the right sleeve as a finishing (yarn-saving) flourish. Not a seam in sight.

There are step-by-step instructions, an overview table to help you keep track of increases from shoulder to the separation of sleeves, and how-to photos (on the last pages, to be printed or not as you choose).

Instructions for (optional) bust darts (3 sizes) and waist shaping are also included.

Yarn requirements
3 (3, 3, 3, 3) 4, 4, 4, 5, 5 skeins

The first five sizes can be knitted with 3 skeins of the main colour, but you may need to knit the sleeves before finishing the body to make sure.
