The Holiday Sweater is knit seamlessly from the top down with raglan increases. The sweater begins at the neckline, which is shaped by knitting back and forth with increases on either side. From there on, the sweater is knit in the round. The sleeves are extra wide towards the hands and are finished with a closefitting rib (balloon sleeves). The sleeves are knit in the round with the Magic Loop technique. At the end, stitches are picked up for the neckband, which is knit with both decreases and increases to ensure a neat finish.
The Holiday Sweater is intended to have a positive ease of 15-20 cm. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL correspond to a bust measurement of approximately 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 cm. Note that the final measurements of the sweater have those extra 15-20 cm already built in. Measure yourself to find the best size for you before casting on.
