Swirl Sweater - English
This pattern combines different structures, braids and cables in a sweater that is knitted top down. First the backpiece is worked, then stitches are picked up at the seam to form the shoulders. The front and back are joined and the body is worked in the round. Stitches are picked up to create the sleeves and short rows form the shoulders. Finally, the neck the worked in twisted rib.
