Ground Pepper is a classic V-neck sweater with little details that make it special. Beautiful chain-like raglan increases and faux seams on body and sleeves, along with endless possibilities in color combination, make this a piece to knit over and over again.
The sweater is worked from top down, the upper body back and forth, the rest of the body and sleeves in the round.

SIZES: XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL)
Bust circumference of the finished sweater: 31 (35, 39, 43, 46 ¼, 50 ¼)” / 79 (89, 99, 109, 117.5, 128) cm; to fit bust 28 (32, 36, 40, 44, 48)” / 72 (82, 92, 102, 112, 122) cm.
The sweater is designed to be worn with 3” / 7.5 cm of positive ease for sizes XS, S, M and L and with 2 ¼” / 6 cm of positive ease for sizes XL and XXL. The positive ease is already built into each size. Shown in size S.
