Knitting Pattern in English for a comfortable and slightly oversized sweater with a classic striped pattern, a round neck and striped cuffs and collar in sizes XS | S | M (L | XL | 2XL).

 

Structure:

The sweater is worked in stockinette stitch top down with raglan increases in one piece. First, the yoke is worked back and forth in rows to shape the round neck with additional increases along the neckline. As soon as the front parts are closed to the round, the yoke is finished in stockinette stitch in rounds with raglan increases. Then, the sleeves are separated from the body and the body is worked in stockinette stitch in rounds with a pattern of contrasting stripes. Finally, the body is finished with a hem in 1x1 ribbed pattern in the main colour. The sleeve stitches are picked up again and are finished in stockinette stitch in rounds with the same striped pattern like the body. The cuffs are worked in 1x1 ribbed pattern with alternating stripes in the main colour and the contrast colour. In the end, stitches are picked up along the neckline and a collar in 1x1 ribbed pattern with alternating stripes in the main colour and the contrast

colour is added to the round neck. The fit of the sweater is very comfortable due to the positive ease. The striped design is very classic, but with a modern make- over due to the cuffs and collar with alternating stripes in the main colour and the contrast colour.
