This soft sweater is a cropped and light model with dropped shoulders and a deep V-neckline. The sweater is knitted in the round bottom up until divided by the V-neck and worked flat. Stitches are picked up for the shoulders, which are worked top down. The sweater is work in ”honsestrik” (fair isle). You can find inspiration for the sweater in the diagram below or make up your own design by drawing figures or mosaic in the empty diagram on the last page. Stitches are picked up for the sleeves, which are work top down – first flat, then in the round. The sleeves are concluded with a hem in rib stitch by the cuff.
