Esther is a lovely sweater with many great details. The sweater is short, has twisted sleeves and a biese at the hem, which is a really great detail. If you are unsure how to knit a biese, you can find help on our youtube channel.

Esther is knitted by a mix of Highland Wool and Super Kid Silk, a soft combination, perfect for sweaters.

The sweater is absolutely perfect for fall / spring, but can be used year round!

It’s important that the height of the sts fits the gauge. Because the sweater is knit across, this is the factor that decides if the finished work fits.

Pattern information:
The sweater is knit from sleeve to sleeve. You work with 1 strand of each quality. In the end you pick up sts along the neckline and for the ribbing in the waist.
