Adorable seamless sweater with a round yoke and bell-shape sleeves. The yoke is knit in the round from the neck down, and the stitches increase strictly according to the pattern. After this, the stitches are divided into front, back, and sleeves. The advantage of knitting from the neck down is that the length of the body and sleeves can be adjusted, if the stitches are put on a piece of waste yarn while the sweater is tried on.

Size of the sweater is determined by thickness of yarn and needle size:
Sizes X-Small, (Small, Medium, Large) will need 9 (10, 11, 12) 50-g balls (approx 130, (116, 105, 97) yards per ball) of bamboo, cotton, cotton/viscose/silk, or wool yarn. Gauge is given in pattern.
