Needles: 3.75 mm / US 5 knitting needles AND needles suitable for working small circumferences in the round Always use a needle size that will result in the correct gauge after blocking.

Notes: The front and back of Nasreen are worked separately and seamed. Each piece is made of a vertical panel worked from the bottom up, a diagonal panel worked by picking up stitches along the edge of the first panel and a neckband worked by picking up stitches
at the top edge. The front and back are then joined at the shoulders with a 3-needle cast off and the sides are seamed. Stitches are then picked up around the armholes for a neat finish.

While the ribbing and neck band are worked in a single colour, the garter stitch panels are worked in two-colour stripes by changing colour every 2 rows.
