Winter is coming and I wanted the WAITING FOR INDIAN SUMMER sweater a bit warmer at the neck, that is why I added a version with turtle neck. You will find instructions for both versions.

WAITING FOR INDIAN SUMMER is worked seamlessly from top down. The right side is reverse stockinette stitch. To avoid that lot of purling, the garment is reversed to the wrong side after neck shaping in short rows. So the whole sweater is worked on the wrong side by stockinette stitch.
The shoulders and yoke are worked in a certain order, which must be strictly adhered to.
