CHANGES SWEATER ENGLISH
Changes Sweater pattern (English)
Changes Sweater is an oversized raglan model with a turtleneck worked in two-colored brioche (both colours on the same round) and cables. The brioche pattern makes the sweater reversible.
Starting with the neck and working in the round the turtleneck continues straight into the yoke which is shaped by working decreases in different intervals around the raglan seams. At the same time cables on both front and back and both sleeves are worked. After dividing into body and sleeves, these are worked individually. The side seam on the body is lead towards the front underlining the shape of the waist. Body, sleeves and neck are all finished by an i-cord trim.
