3.5 mm / US 5 and 4 mm / US 6 double pointed needles / circular needle suitable for working small hcircumferences in the round (for ribbing)

The body is worked from the bottom up in the round then front and back are worked separately. After attaching the shoulders, sleeves stitches are picked up along armholes.
Stitches for collar are picked up at the end.

It’s a pretty loose sweater, in order to play with layering and to show the beautiful drape of the garnment. The style is minimalist with some beautiful details: wide collar; decorative double decreases along neckline and sleeves shaping. Elbow lenght and pretty wide sleeves add to the sweater its final touch.
