The Perfect Layering Sweater is great for wearing with all sorts of different layering pieces! Hot outside? Wear a cami underneath. Getting cooler? Wear warmer layers under to peek through the mesh stripes.

Uses DK yarn - Malabrigo Rastita, but any DK yarn that gets gauge can be substituted if you do not want to use a wool yarn.

Sweater is worked in rounds. Some rounds are joined, but other rounds are worked continuously. Read instructions carefully and only join when instructed to do so. Do not turn at the end of round.

Ch 4 at beginning of round counts as dc, ch 1.

Collar and cuffs are worked back and forth in rows, at a right angle to the body or sleeve. The ribbing is attached at the end of every other row by working the last stitch of the ribbing and the next stitch of the body together. Be sure to skip a stitch in between each join.
