Tove is an oversized drop­shoulder sweater with a loose fit. The long and tight ribbed cuff and hem create a balloon­like silhouette on both body and sleeves.
Worked with Mohair in fisherman’s rib for a more trendy effect.
It is knitted bottom up and the sleeves are knitted by picking up the stitches from the body.
The shoulder seam is worked at the end by joining the live stitches to a saddle seam worked in stockinette stitch. This shoulder construction adds a more steady and structured feel to the sweater.
The model on the picture is 169 cm tall and wears a size 2.
