Vintertid means winter time in Swedish. This sweater embodies how I want to face the colder months - in warmth, swept in something soft and light.

Vintertid is an oversized sweater knitted in a simple lace pattern with dropped sleeves and turtleneck. It is worked seamless top down with two strands of yarn held together. First, you knit the front back and forth down to end of armhole, then the back in the same way. Then, you continue knitting the body in the round. Arms and neck ribbing is worked in the round by picking up stitches along armhole and neck edges. The sweater in its original design is slightly cropped, but it is easy to adjust both width and length for a personalized fit.

Technical elements such as provisional cast-on, tubular bind-off and slipped stitches makes the knitting experience fun and adds finesse to the end result.

Errata; In the section of joining body in the round, there has been a small mistake. Between the markers under each arm it should be: Round1: k2, yo, k1. Round 2: k1, sl1, drop yo from previous round, k1. Round 3: k1, sl1, k1. Round 4: k1, sl1, k1.
