Vertical Stripes Sweater
This knitting pattern is in English.
Vertical Stripes Sweater is worked bottom-up in a k 4, p 4 rib pattern. The sleeves are worked by picking up sts around the armhole and working in the round on small circular needles, using the magic loop technique or on double pointed needles. Lastly, a neckband is worked around the neck opening. Vertical Stripes Sweater therefore requires almost no finishing or seaming.
Vertical Stripes Sweater has a slightly oversized fit. It is designed to be worn with 20-25 cm / 8-10 inches of positive ease. To find the right oversize fit for you choose the size that is approximately 20-25 cm / 8-10 inches larger than your bust circumference (see measurements on the front page).
