  • The Paul Sweater is worked from the top down in stockinette stitch. First, the left and right shoulders are worked separately before being joined into a single piece. After that, stitches are picked up to work the back. Then, stitches are picked up again to work the right and left fronts. German Short Rows are used to ensure a comfortable fit at the shoulders. Once all the parts are completed, they are joined for knitting in the round. Next, stitches are picked up to work the neckline in a 1x1 rib, worked in the round. Finally, the stitches are picked up to work the sleeves in the round.

Sizes:
XS / S / M / L / XL / 2XL / 3XL
The Paul Sweater has a slightly oversized fit and is designed to have approx. 20 cm 7¾ in of positive ease with slightly reduced ease in larger sizes, to ensure a more comfortable fit. This means the garment’s measurements will be approx. 20 cm 7¾ in larger than your actual bust circumference.

The sizes XS / S / M / L / XL / 2XL / 3XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 / 85-90 / 90-95 / 95-100 / 100-110 /110-120 / 120-130 cm 31½-33½ / 33½-35½ / 35½-37½ / 37½-39½ / 39½-43¼ / 43¼-47¼ / 47¼-51¼ in.

Before you begin, measure yourself to determine the right size. For example, if your bust circumference is 90 cm 35 in, you should knit a size M. If you are between sizes, choose the size based on how loose you prefer the sweater to fit. Using the diagram with the finished garment measurements can be a helpful reference when deciding which size to select.
