Aibrean is a lovely sweater with an easy pattern that gives a pretty, nubby texture. You won’t need much time to get into the pattern, I swear - anyway the instructions are given word by word to lead you through the yoke increases in pattern - first the yoke is worked back and forth to the final neck CO, then in the round to sleeve separation. Sleeve sts are placed on hold to work the body first down to the ribbing. Then sleeve sts are placed on DPNs to work the sleeves in the round top down. Neck finishing is worked last.
sample is worn with approx. 3 in of positive ease at bust.
