This is a nice and comfortable sweater that can be used all year round. It is knitted from top to bottom in rib, back and forth on a circular needle. After the neckline, it is increased with raglan on the yoke and short rows are knitted to make it higher in front and back. An opening is made for buttonholes on the left side of the front to then continue knitting in the round. Italian cast on and cast off has been used, to make it stretchy and to give a nice result. Knitting rib is very elastic, the sweater will therefore have a long life.
