CONSTRUCTION
Majsan is a straight and short sweater model with a round yoke
and a repeating flower pattern in stranded knitting. It is knitted
top down, in one piece, for a seamless construction. Short rows
are made over the back neck to raise the yoke for a more com-
fortable fit of the neckline. The sleeve decreases are made in the
round to avoid interruptions in the flower pattern.
The pattern is written for the sizes XS (S/M) L/XL (2XL)

KONSTRUKTION
Majsan är en kort och rak tröjmodell med ett rundstickat ok.
Hela tröjan pryds av ett flerfärgsstickat blommönster. Tröjan
stickas uppifrån och ner i ett stycke, ingen montering krävs.
Förkortade varv stickas över halsringningen bak för att ge en
bra passform över hals och nacke. Ärmminskningarna är jämnt
fördelade runt ärmen för att inte störa mönsterrapporten.
Mönstret finns i storlekarna XS (S/M) L/XL (2XL) 3XL/4XL
(5XL); 97 (110) 122 (133) 146 (158) cm (bröstmått färdigt
plagg). Modellen kan stickas med antingen en lösare eller tigh-
tare passform.
