LIGHT_LOOP_HIGH-NECK is a simple and light sweater with a tall neck. Feminine details along the neckline and shoulder creates a fine contrast to the boxy fit of the body with straight sleeves.
The sweater is worked top down in 1 piece and is thus sewing-free. First, the neckline is worked in stockinette stitch. This is followed by short rows to shape the neckline while increases are worked for the shoulders. Then the yoke is worked with front and back panels worked separately until joined for the body, which is knitted in the round. Finally, stitches are picked up in the arm hole and the sleeves are knitted in the round.
XS (S) M (L) XL (XXL).
The sweater has a boxy fit with approx. 20-30 cm positive ease.
You should choose a size with the circumference approx. 20-30 cm larger than your own bust circumference, depending on how loose of a fit you want the sweater to be.
