When purchasing the BERTHA SWEATER you’ll also get the BERTHA SWEATER LACE EDITION and the BERTHA SLIPOVER in the same download. Every option has been carefully thought through, and it comes with its own twists and tweaks.

The Bertha is worked seamlessly top-down with a perfect fit at the shoulder and a very versatile look, to match all of your outfits.

The Bertha Set includes three variations on the same construction. Each version has its twists and small differences in length, width, and shape to make it as perfect as possible. The set includes a Sweater, a Lace edition, and a Slipover.

I designed them with great care, so you can knit several Berthas and never feel bored! I hope you enjoy knitting them!

DPNs or short cable needles might come in handy for sleeves and cuffs.
