BUT...... the (2) side sections AND the center section are worked AT THE SAME TIME, each section following it's specific insts, and the specific instructions will be worked on different rows until all rows of the shaping have been completed, and the st counts are given for each section.
- A note on sizing:
The finished sizes for this pattern seem large at first glance. Though these measurements represent the circumference at the hem of the sweater and throughout the body, the smaller gauge and traveling stitches at the yoke force the fabric at the underarm to gather into a functionally smaller circumference, creating a slight A-line shape.
When choosing a size to make for this pattern, consider that the functional circumference at the underarm will be approximately 37" (41", 46", 51", 58") for the sizes given, and choose a size that will give you a few inches of positive ease.
- Clarification on Yarn, A note from the designer:
The yarn used for this sweater is classified as Worsted weight; the ball band recommends size 8 (5 mm) needles to get a gauge of 4.5 sts per inch. It has great loft and “behaves” nicely as a DK weight!
