If you ever dreamed about living on the meadow you can partly make this dream come true by making a Flora sweater.
Wrap yourself in an extremely comfy pullover full of botanical textures and, wherever you go, you will be accompanied by tiny flower buds, dandelions and twigs.

For your convenience, each size has its own file, with instructions only for the given size. You will not have to search for instructions on complicated charts nor print many irrelevant information! Just pick your size and knit without distractions! IMPORTANT: you get access to all files (all languages and all sizes).

Flora is a pullover knitted top-down in the round. Its hallmarks are oversized shape, low raglan line and plenty of botanical textures. The pattern is easy to do, the only challenging aspect might be the number of textures, but I promise you – you will quickly remember every chart and its location and before you separate body and sleeves you will know them by heart!
To make it easier for you I prepared a special file for tracking the number of charts rows, stitches and raglan increasing in the yoke part. It will tell you how many occurrences of each type of chart there are in a particular round. Just mark the finished rounds and don’t worry about anything. I hope you will find it helpful!
