SOFT_LOOP_SWEATER is a light and soft sweater with turtleneck and an elegant striped structure. The body has a boxy and oversize fit with straight sleeves.
Soft_loop_sweater is worked top down. First, the turtleneck and upper part of the yoke are worked in the round with shoulder increases. Then the work is divided for the front and back, which are worked flat before joined again for the body. The body and sleeves are worked in the round. The garment also features a striped structure made with knit- and purl-stitches according to a simple chart, which is repeated throughout the sweater.

Bust circumference_ 120 (130) 144 measured under the arm hole.
Length_ 64 (65) 65 cm including the neckband.
I recommend knitting a size which allows for a positive ease of 25-40 cm relative to your bust circumference, depending on how oversize a fit you wish for.
