IT'S A KIND OF MAGIC SWEATER ENGLISH
This pattern is in English
It’s A Kind of Magic Sweater is an oversized and simple model with decorative increases along the raglan seams.
The sweater is worked top-down. In the beginning the yoke is worked back and forth to shape an elegant neckline at the front. Then, stitches are cast on at the bottom of the neckline and worked in the round until the work is divided for body and sleeves and the parts are finished individually. The body is worked straight down, while decreases are made on the underside of the sleeves. Sleeves, body, and neckband are finished with a beautiful wide ribbing in twisted rib. At the neck, the ribbing is folded double.
The sweater is meant to have a positive ease of approx. 25 cm. This means you should choose a size 25 cm larger than your bust measurement (if that is the widest part of your torso). If you have a bust measuring 96 cm you should choose a size M with a circumference of 121 cm.
