Beautiful colorwork sweater, worked seamlessly from top down. Circular yoke with a few increase rounds and the colorwork pattern is worked first. Body and sleeves are then separated, sleeve stitches are placed on hold and the body is worked in the round towards the hem, adding a slight A-shaping. Sleeve stitches are then placed on needles and the 3⁄4 length sleeves are worked in the round towards the cuffs.
Please note that the colorwork is charted.
