KARMA CHAMELEON SWEATER ENGLISH
This pattern is in English
Karma Chameleon Sweater is a slightly cropped model with sculptural sleeves and double knitted edges by the sleeves and neck. It's worked in two-coloured brioche with both colours worked on the same row/round. Cables are made down along the shoulders, top of the sleeves and across the chest. The model is worked top down with different increase techniques shaping the sleeves and body in one, which gives an impression of an inset sleeve.
