Unobvious is a seamless sweater with lace panels and sleeve’s cuffs in contrasting color, finished with a twisted rib. This sweater is not only flattering with a nice drape and style, but also interesting because of its two-color construction.

Pattern information

The construction of this sweater is unusual. You start from knitting lace panels bottom - up, then, after picking up the stitches across the edge of lace panels the body of the sweater is knitted in the direction from the middle towards the sides of the sweater. After completing the body of the sweater sleeves are knitted in the round from live stitches. Neckline and bottom hem are knitted as the last.

Sizes: XS (S, M1, M2, L1, L2, XL, 2XL)

Finished measurements of the garment: 90 (95, 100, 105, 110, 115, 120, 125) cm / 35 1/2 (37 1/2, 39 1/2, 41 1/2, 43 1/2, 45 1/3, 47 1/3, 49 1/3)“ bust circumference;
