Shown in the Dragonberry colorway.
The sweater is knit from the top down, with stitches picked up from the shoulder straps, fronts and back joined at the armholes, and continued in one piece.
Motifs are charted only. Remainder of directions are written.
Waist shaping is included for a flattering, body-skimming fit.
The sleeves are worked by picking up stitches along the armhole, working short rows for the cap shaping, then continuing in the round.
