Sofie’s sweater

11.00$

“Sofie’s sweater” is worked from the bottom up, with raglan. The sweater has color work sections at the neck, bottom of the body, and at the wrist. These color work sections are customized for each size, so that entire pattern reports always fit the number of stitches.

There are facings on the back of the color work sections at the bottom of the body, the neck and the sleeves. This is to prevent threads from being pulled out, for example by fingers getting in to the threads. With double layer, the neck will be thicker and will more easily stand straight up nicely.

The picot edge at the top of the neck and at the bottom of the sleeves and body makes neat and beautiful edges.
The grey and pink sweater features a shimmering thread in the color work section.
The red and beige sweater is made without any shimmering thread.

The pattern is a pdf file, and a link to download this file will be sent to your email, immediately after the purchase.
