They say, to knit a typical sweater, one third of
the stitches are for the sleeves, one third are for
the yoke, and one third are for the body of the
sweater below the underarms.

Well, I wanted, mainly, to knit the sleeves, and
draw them together using ribbons and bows. Here
is my attempt.

Tertian music is based on the interval of a third.
In medicine, a tertian fever returns every three
days. Let’s hope this one-third of a sweater
makes you feel like humming and chases chills
away.

You can use any yarn, any needles, and any
gauge you like. I think, though, if it’s much
heavier than a light worsted, it might feel strange
to have at least a small slit down the back,
covered only by ribbon.

I’ve written the pattern so that you can fill in your own numbers, but I also tell you what I did.

Mine took 3 skeins of yarn, but I didn’t need much of that third skein.
