The Noma Sweater is a soft and roomy sweater with a folded polo-neck. It is knitted from the top down where the front and back pieces are knitted separately. The top of the back is knitted before you pick up stitches to create the shoulders and neckline. After that you gather the stitches from the front and back pieces and start knitting the body on the same needles. Finally you will pick up stitches to knit the sleeves and neck. All pieces are finished with a long double rib edge.

Knit a gauge swatch before starting so that you are certain your gauge is correct. The sweater should have a positive ease of about 15-20 cm.
