Beryl combines the precision of geometry with the serendipity of color bands of various widths. In Vivo, a candy-colored yarn perfect for summer, you'll be ready to head out into the sunshine. Beryl is worked from side to side in two pieces, with increases and decreases shaping the shoulders and neck. The two pieces are sewn together and then stitches are picked up at the neck, armholes, and hem for garter stitch edgings. The finished chest measurements are 37 (40, 44.5, 47.5, 51.5, 56, 60.5, 63.5, 67.5, 72, 76.5)" with finished lengths of 21 (21.5, 22.25, 23, 23.5, 24.5, 25.75, 26.5, 27.5, 29.25, 30)". If you like the fit of the sweater on the model, plan for 4-8" of ease. This sweater can be machine washed on delicate in cold water and dried flat. Berroco has rated this Amy Christoffers design as requiring intermediate skill level.
