Soft Loop Sweater by Other Loops

SOFT LOOP SWEATER  by Maja of Other Loops is a light and soft sweater with turtleneck and an elegant striped structure.

The body has a boxy and oversize fit with straight sleeves. Worked top down, first the turtleneck and upper part of the yoke are worked in the round with shoulder increases. Then the work is divided for the front and back, which are worked flat before joined again for the body. The body and sleeves are worked in the round. The garment also features a striped structure made with knit- and purl-stitches according to a simple chart, which is repeated throughout the sweater.
