Kira K Designs is a line of original knitting and crochet patterns with a streamlined and eminently wearable aesthetic. Research on historical clothing, which Kira did during her former career as a theatrical costume designer, is a strong influence on her design sense, and many patterns reference styles from the 1920s through the 1960s. Kira's family history of Danish Modern furniture design is also an important influence on her patterns, resulting in garments and accessories with clean lines and intriguing details that are both interesting to make and easy to wear.

This flattering wrap sweater is designed for minimal seaming, with the body including front edging knit in one piece to the armholes. The sleeves are knit in the round before being sewn to the body. There is no built-in closure, which allows you to cinch the sweater tighter or looser depending on your preference - choose a size smaller than your actual bust measurement for the best fit - you can wrap the sweater looser for a custom fit.
4" = 18 sts and 25 rows in Stocking Stitch on larger needles
