To celebrate Malabrigo March, I am offering 20% off my self-published patterns made with Malabrigo yarns until the end of March 10 with the code MALMARCH20.

The Candied Orange sweater, rich in both color and texture, is written for 6 sizes and 2 lengths, cropped and regular. The amount of ease is up to you: roomy for layering or extra comfort, or minimal ease for next-to-body wear. Look through the dimensions on the next page and choose the ease and length that works best for you. In the photo: cropped version in size C worn on 36¼″ (92 cm) bust with 10″ (25 cm) of positive ease.

The sweater is worked sideways in two pieces (front and back) which are seamed at the shoulders and sides. An extra pattern repeat is added to the back to create a higher back neck. The sleeve stitches are picked up around the arm openings and worked in the round top down with decreases evenly placed along each sleeve to create a gentle taper towards the cuff.
