A classic tweed sweater with a twist, this cozy knitted garment will keep you warm all winter. Its flattering slim silhouette is enhanced by vertical decorative seams running down the body and top of the sleeves. The twist is the contrasting edges worked in a lace weight yarn. They add just the right amount of interest to give this casual wear sweater a touch of elegance.
The sweater is knit using the contiguous sleeve method developed by Susie Myers, worked in one piece from the top down. This makes it easy to try the garment on as you go and create a perfect fit.
Designed to be a flattering fit for small, medium and larger sizes by using extensive waist shaping in the small and medium sizes (sizes 32-38) and moderate waist shaping in the large sizes (sizes 40-46). From size 48 upwards, the sweater is knitted in an A-line.
Shown with moderate waist shaping and 4 inches of positive ease.
The sample uses Briggs & Little Heritage and Isaga Strik Alpaca 1. A substitute yarn is shown below.
