The sweater is knitted from the top down in rounds, with short rows both above and below the colourwork to scoop the front neck. Side shaping also makes for a flattering fit.
With a relatively short section of colourwork this is a great project for beginning colourwork knitters.
The sizing given above is for the wearer's actual full bust measurement. The finished sweater includes 4 to 8.5cm/1.5 to 3.25 inches of positive ease.
The given tension/gauge is after blocking. Please note that Felted Tweed DK is akin to a US sportweight/heavy fingering.
