Pattern Description:

A sweater with tight waist webbing and balloon shape body and sleeves.

I thought of a simple, single color, feminine sweater for spring / automn season. I used herringbone stitch pattern to shape a tight webbing, which shows off a slim waist and the wide bottom rib hides whatever needs to be hidden...

Herringbone stitch pattern is also used at the sleeve hems to help the balloon shaping of the sleeves.

The herringbone stitch pattern is not a very common technique, so I added photo instructions in this PDF pattern.

There are instructions for sizes: X-Small - Small - Medium
Yarn needed for each size: 1600 - 1650 - 1750 yds

Wear it with a Chanel skirt or trousers.

Prefer light color yarn to knit this sweater. I used lilac 30% wool - 65% acrylic with a string of lurex (5%).

I'm sure you'll enjoy knitting and wearing it!
