I absolutely love this flattering, size-inclusive design and now that I've knit it in three different Noro fibers, I can say I adore each one! Beautifully designed by Elizabeth Smith, it goes back to what I love most: simple, classic and wearable design.
Choose from 3 different shapes to flatter all body types: an a-line (which is what the pictured sample is knitted in), a waist-shaped and a no-shaped version. Inclusively sized, choose from sizes 1 - 9. Measurements given are finished bust sizes and it is recommended to allow 2-4" positive ease for the best fit.
Fiber: 100% wool "Viola" by Noro
Skill level: adventuresome beginner and beyond
Inclusive, finished bust sizes range from 34" to 66"
The sweater is knit from the top down and split at the underarms to knit one of the 3 body-shaping versions. Sleeves are transferred to dpns (or you can use the magic loop method as I did), with the neckline and cuffs worked in a size smaller needle.
Needles are not included, this project requires:
US size 10 - 24" & 32" circular needles & dpns (or use 32" for magic loop method)
US size 9 - 32" & 16" circular needles & dpns (or use 32" for magic loop)
