Outdoor Sweater My Guy Size by Uldklumper
This Outdoor Sweater is a great transition sweater for when seasons are changing. It has a high collar, which keeps the neck nice and warm. The sweater is knitted from the top down, starting with the collar. In the collar, a drawstring is made, where an icord can be slipped through. Like in the picture, the icord can be made in a contrast colour. The collar is made using (German) short rows, and when it is finished, a part of it is folded, creating a nice asymmetrical look by the collar. After finishing the collar, the raglan increases on the front and the back of the sweater are started. Afterwards, the body and the sleeves are knitted separately.
The sweater is also fitting for women. Use the recipe’s chest measurements as a guideline to decide the right size.
