Freestyle Sweater
Designed by Paula_m

The FREESTYLE Sweater is a simple raglan sweater with three-quarter sleeves and fine details on the cuffs. An all-rounder that can be easily combined and is perfect for spring and summer. First, the neckline is formed by shortened rows (back and forth). Then work in rounds and work increases for body and sleeves. After the raglan increases are completed, the work is divided and body and sleeves are finished separately. Since the sweater is knitted from the top down, it is possible (and advisable) to try it on during knitting, so the length of the body as well as the sleeves can be adjusted individually. Techniques used: Shortened rows (German Short Rows), left and right inclined increases and decreases, cast-off with the Italian method'. All the techniques used are explained in the manual with the help of photos and links to tutorials.
