Dagmar
A classic sweater with a twist - fun to knit and beautiful to wear. A little more length on the back gives a good fit, and the effect with the braids on the sides adds a little extra pizazz - these can easily be omitted though. The combination of Spinni and Alpaca 1 provides an incredibly soft, lightweight and durable sweater that you can have in your wardrobe for many years.

Directions
The sweater is worked in the round, from the top down. Cast on stitches using a temporary crochet cast-on, so the size of the neckline can be adjusted subsequently. Short rows are worked across the shoulder and the neckline in the beginning to yield a higher neckline. The yoke is worked with increases. Hereafter the work is divided and both the sleeves and the body are worked separately. Work short rows from the center back and onto the front piece to increase the length at the back.
