Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Short Rows

Pattern Description:

Whether you wear it in a mountaintop getaway or simply to run errands or pad around the house, you'll be cozy, comfortable, and warm - and you'll look great. Clara has a modern, boxy shape and a line that slopes slightly from front to back. While the overall fit is oversized, the sleeves are fitted, and the bottom border pulls in slightly to hug the legs. This is a sweater that looks especially good with leggings or skinny jeans.


CONSTRUCTION
Body is worked all-in-one piece, back-and-forth on circular needle; do not join. Sleeves are picked up along armhole and worked to cuff. After shoulders are seamed, stitches are picked up around front and back neckline and collar is worked.

The lower edge of sweater is curved with the back being longer than the front. Shaping is achieved with short rows and slipped stitch front borders.
