This design is knitted top-down seamlessly in stockinette stitch, holding 4 strands of yarn for the body and 2 or 4  strands for the cuffs and edge band. 

The body is knitted flat, while the sleeves are knitted partially flat and partially in the round. You will begin by knitting the back until the underarms. Then, separately knit each shoulder at the front, shaping the v-neckline at the same time. The front and the back will then be joined together and the rest of the body will be knitted.  Next, you will pick up stitches along the armholes for working the set-in sleeves using the short rows. The edge band is knitted from picked-up stitches along the front and back of the cardigan.

Cardigan is designed to have approx. 20 cm [8 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 22 cm [8 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement.

Available sizes: S ( M ) L

The sizes S ( M ) L are designed to fit approx. bust circumference of 80-88 (88-96) 96-104 cm [ 31-35 (35-38) 38-41 in ]

Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35.5 inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size M. A size M sweater has a bust circumference of 112 cm [44 inches] which in the given example would give you 22cm [8.75 inches] of positive ease.

Nigdy nie wiedziałam tak precyzyjnego wzoru! Zachwyciła mnie dbałość o każdy szczegół, estetyka, filmik do każdego etapu. To się nie może nie udać z tak rozpisanym wzorem. Jestem absolutnie oczarowana! Liczę na więcej wzorów :)

Bardzo polecam, świetny prosty wzór do odczytania! Pomocnicze mini filmiki ze skrótami, dzięki którym wzór nie jest straszny! Zrobiłam sweter za pierwszym razem i to bez prucia :) Zabieram się za kolejny wzór ! Gratulacje, i czekam na kolejne wspaniałe wzoru swetrów ! :)

Der Pulli ist toll. Der Kontakt mit Wera sehr nett. Nur das die Anleitung nicht per PDF ausgedruckt werden kann,habe ich beim Kauf nicht bemerkt. Mit dem Handy neben mir stricken ist nicht so mein Ding. Ich stricke den Pulli trotzdem,leider nicht nach der Anleitung von Wera.
