Flower Sweater has an unusual construction - front and back start as hexagons, worked from the centre of the flower motif outwards. When the hexagons are wide enough, sts for the neck and sleeves are placed on scrap yarn and the two pieces are joined and worked in the round, top down, with decreases shaping lower body at the sides. Raglan sleeves are knitted onto the body making the sweater completely seamless. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Working in the round, increases, decreases, picking up sts, provisional CO, short rows. GAUGE Stockinette st: 22 sts and 30 rows = 10 cm/ 4 in, with 4 mm needle(s) I-cord BO: 20 rows = 10 cm/ 4 in, with 4 mm needle(s) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished bust circumference: 79 (83.5, 88, 92, 96, 100.5, 105, 113, 117.5, 126, 134.5) cm/ 31 (32.75, 34.5, 36.25, 38, 39.5, 41.25, 44.5, 46.25, 49.5, 53) in. Shown in size 100.5 cm/ 39.5 in, with 2 in of negative ease at bust and 1 in of positive ease at hips. After blocking, finished hip circumference will become 5-7 cm/ 2-3 in larger than chest circumference. The sweater is designed to be worn with no ease at bust, otherwise the hip section will be too large. If your bust circumference is the same as, or larger than your hip circumference, choose a size with negative ease at bust. PREFERRED BRAND/YARN any smooth wool yarn with good stitch definition
