DESCRIPTION

The Mila sweater is a combination of my love for traditional nordic colorwork and whimsical design. A colorful striped yoke transitions to an allover pattern that adds drama and fun to this classic-fit sweater. It is knit from the top down starting with the collar. Short-row shaping takes place in the back to give the bust a great fit. Then yoke increases are done within the yoke chart, and finally a second chart is knit for the body and sleeves.

NEEDLES:
Main: US 2/2.75 mm - 24”/60cm to 40”/100cm circular and preferred needles for small circumference knitting for sleeves (Magic Loop,
short circulars, or DPNs).
Ribbing: US 1/2.25 mm - 16”/40 cm circular for collar, 32”/80 cm for hem and preferred needles for small circumference knitting for cuffs.

(Or needle size you need to achieve gauge, The ribbing needle should be 1 US size smaller than the main needle. )
