NOTES ABOUT DESIGN

The garment is made top-down in circular rounds only on the right side. First is made the yoke, and then divided for the sleeves and body.

The sweater alternates Front Post Double Crochet and Back Post Double Crochet in a diamond pattern.
Ultimately, an edging is worked around the neckline, sleeves, and bottom. The edge is worked in a front post and back post double crochet ribbing.

The pattern is available in 6 sizes and is written in US terms. This pattern uses as reference standard body measurements, but because of the stitch pattern, the positive ease is not the same on all sizes. That is why the pattern is written for sizes from 1 to 6. Use the measurements to choose the size that suits you.

How much yarn do you need?

I made 2 samples for this design: one in DK weight yarn and one in Fingering Weight Yarn. The yardage below is for both yarn weights, considering the measurements above.

For the Fingering weight version, I used Cascade 220 by Cascade Yarns. Yarn composition: 100% Peruvian Highland Wool; 1 hank has 50g and 250 meters.
I used Rico Essentials Merino DK by Rico Design for the DK weight version. Yarn composition is 100% Virgin Wool; 1 ball has 50g and 120 meters.

For each size, you will need approximately: 1480 (1750, 2070, 2170, 2490, 2850) meters
