This top-down sweater uses short rows to shape the neck and raglan shaping at the shoulders. The body is garter stitch with an accent rib down the sides and 12-stitch cable running down the sleeves. The cable panel is worked from written directions. Stitches are reserved for the sleeves, which are knit from the shoulder down once the body is complete. It uses Malabrigo's Rios, a 100% Merino superwash wool that is hand-dyed in incredible color combinations. Finished chest measurements are 35.75 (37.5, 39.5, 41.5, 43.25, 45)" with lengths of 23 (23.5, 24, 24.5, 25, 25.5)". It can be machine washed and dried flat. Designed by Justyna Lorkowska.
