Opuntia sweater

Opuntia is a classic, remarkably comfortable everyday pullover, fitting every body shape and every wardrobe! I designed my version to go well with jeans, but you can simply make it waistlong to match it nicely with dresses or skirts. The details on the arms and mid-height collar, which can be rolled, are its only embellishments. Using rib as the main stitch underlines its modern look and makes it elastic and fitting the body.

Opuntia is a very minimalist pullover, which is a perfect match for many different occasions! Its main features are modern collar and interesting arm shaping. Whole sweater, except cuffs, is made in Rib 1×1 pattern. It makes the fabric both soft and spongy, and definitely catches the eye. The pattern is totally beginners friendly.

The pattern contains detailed instructions for making the sweater in 8 sizes and two language versions – Polish and English.
