A spiralling stitch pattern twists about this sweater. All the shaping; sleeve, waist, and yoke, is done in the pattern. Despite looking complex, the stitch is very simple and it is easy to adjust the length of the sweater and add in more or less waist shaping. You might be surprised when you read the pattern!

This sweater is knit in the round, seamlessly, from the bottom up. The underarms are grafted.
If you have a handspun singles you would like to make into a sweater, this is the perfect pattern for it. Even if the sweater twists from the yarn being unbalanced, this will not be noticable in the finished sweater.

The sizes are: 32 (36, 40, 44, 48, 52) inch bust, and they take 9 (10, 11, 12, 13, 14) balls.

This pattern can also be bought from Knit Picks for 5.99
