ERRATA English: JOINING BACK AND FRONTS It should read ‘place the right front stitches back onto your needle’ (not left)

German: RECHTE FRONT: In der Folg Rh Front Markierer setzen und DMre, wenn DM erreicht wird: Folg Rh (RR): … 1re, 1li über 28 (28, 28, 28, 28, 28, 32) M, ms, [1re, 1li] bis Ende. RÜCKEN UND FRONTEN VERBINDEN: „die stillgelegten rechten Front M zurück auf die Nadel nehmen“ (nicht linken)

When I bought Lettlopi yarn (for the first time!) at Mylys Hamburg, Naima the owner said to me: “You will love it”. And yes, this seriously became a big love!

BIG LOVE is worked seamlessly from the top-down.
Start working the collar separately. Then you pick up and CO sts for the back and shape the back neck with short rows. Continue to work the back for the length of the armhole. Pick up the stitches for the front and collar and work both fronts symmetrically for the length of the armhole. Join back and fronts to work the body in stitch pattern down to the bottom ribbing. Pick up the sleeve sts to work the sleeves in rounds in stitch pattern.

Any pattern questions are welcome here
