Elegant V-neck sweater with ¾ length sleeves. The sweater is worked seamlessly from top down and requires minimal finishing.
The work begins with the back neck section of the ribbed collar. Stitches for fronts, sleeves and back are picked up from the edge of the collar and the upper body is worked in one piece, ribbed collar included. When the raglan increases and V-neck shaping are completed, sleeve stitches are placed on hold and body is worked in the round towards the hem. Sleeve stitches are then placed back on needles and the sleeves are worked in the round towards the cuffs.
* Aurinko means sun in Finnish.
