Cardamom Sweater - English
Cardamom sweater is worked from the top down. Stitches are cast on and increases are made to shape the edge of the neck and the contiguous shoulders. The shoulder pieces are joined to complete the neckline and the yoke is finished with raglan increases. The body is worked in double broken rib and finished with a twisted rib with a slit in each side. The sleeves are worked in the same double broken rib pattern and finished with long twisted rib edges. Finally, stitches are picked up at the edge of the neck and worked in twisted rib before being folded in.
This pattern includes seven different sizes: XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL. The circumference of the sweater at the bust is 95 (99) 103 (110,5) 122 (129,5) 141 cm. We recommend that you measure your bust circumference (or circumference at the widest area) and add a positive ease of around 10-15 cm, when choosing the correct size to knit.
Example: if your circumference at the widest area is 90 cm we would recommend knitting a size M, which will have a positive ease of 13 cm.
21 stitches x 32 rows = 10 x 10 cm in double broken rib.
