Important sizing note: Tevara is intended to be worn with
positive ease around the bust but has fitted sleeves picked

ease may result in sleeves that are too snug, so please take

the schematic) of your chosen size.

Notes: Tevara starts at the bottom band which is worked
flat before joining in the round and working upwards, with a short row section to create the additional back
length. The front and back are separated at the underarm
before working neck and shoulders shaping. The
decorative stitch panel begins at the bottom back and
stretches the length of the sweater. I-cord creates neat
bottom and top edgings and the shoulders are finished
using a 3-needle cast off. Stitches are picked up around
the armhole for the sleeves and neckband.
