A sweater to live in, fun to knit from the cast-on at the collar, with mini cable details and the joy of putting the colors together.

LIVIN is worked seamlessly from the top down. Knitting starts from the cast-on at the collar. Then stitches are cast on for the shoulders to work the back until the length of the armhole. Stitches are then picked up for the front neck shaped by short rows and then worked until the length of the armhole. The body is then joined to work in rounds down to the bottom ribbing. Sleeve stitches are picked up around each armhole and sleeves are worked in 2x2 rib.
