The sweater is knitted from the top down. After the two-coloured part,
short rows are made to raise the back to make a good fit, then the work
is divided for body and sleeves. The body and sleeves are cast off with an
i-cord. The sweater has a low neckline and a loose fit.

Size:

These measurements indicate the finished size. The sweater is designed to be worn with 5-10cm (2-4”) of positive ease.

Please note that some yarns stretch after washing and blocking. To be sure of how much your sweater will stretch in washing, make a make a 10x10cm (4x4”) swatch and soak up to see how much bigger the sweater will be.

Needles:

Circular needle 3,5 mm and 4 mm (US 4 and 6) in a length that fits your size. I work with the magic loop method which make it possible to knit the whole work using the same cable-length. There are many videos on the internet that show this method.
