Zhenia sweater

Understated, yet sophisticated and most certainly the perfect airy and loose fitting top for the summer. An easy, even a great beginner top to knit. The body gets knitted flat from the bottom up to a dropped shoulder. The sleeves are knitted in the round in a very textual pattern adding just the right touch to stand out.

A positive ease of 8” is worked into the pattern, so choose your actual size. For sizes:
S -34/36, M -38/40, L -42/44, XL -46/48, XXL -50, XXXL -52”.
