The sweater is made using a hybrid construction and starts with a provisional CO at the lower part of the yoke and is worked bottom-up toward the neckline.
The live stitches are then picked up for body and sleeves, and the sweater is finished top-down.
This construction technique allows more freedom for modifications and is easier to adjust, if something is not working out for your body shape.

SIZES:

32 (34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50)

I recommend choosing a size with 2.5-7.5 cm/1-3” positive ease to get a comfortable fit. Sample is worn with 2.5 cm/1” positive ease.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS:

Bust circumference: 86 (90.5, 95.5, 100, 105, 110.5, 115.5, 120, 125, 130.5) cm/33¾ (35½, 37½, 39¼, 41¼, 43½, 45½, 47¼, 49¼, 51¼)“.

NEEDLES:

4.5 mm/US 7 circular needle (100 cm/40”, 80 cm/32” and 60 cm/24”),
4 mm/US 6 circular needle (80 cm/32” and 60 cm/24”),
or a size which gives you the correct gauge.

YARN:

Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (100% Wool; 128 m (140 yards)/50g), shown in colorways Hayloft (MC) and Fossil (CC), or any other worsted weight yarn that gives you the correct gauge.

YARDAGE:

MC:
approx. 978 (1025, 1083, 1155, 1218, 1273, 1350, 1443, 1505, 1563) m/
1070 (1121, 1184, 1263, 1332, 1392, 1476, 1578, 1646, 1709) yds;
CC:
approx. 83 (88, 93, 98, 100, 103, 108, 115, 115, 120) m/
91 (96, 102, 107, 109, 113, 118, 126, 126, 131) yds;

GAUGE:

19 sts and 26 rows in 10 cm/4” on larger needle in stockinette, worked in the round (blocked).
Row gauge is very important for this design, since it defines the yoke depth and therefore the fit around the shoulders.

Tapestry needle
Stitch markers
Waste yarn
Additional circular needle
