Junia Sweater - English
The Junia Sweater is worked top down. At first the yoke is worked back and forth to create an opening in the back. Then the two sides are joined and it is worked in the round. The cables on the yoke are worked according to a chart/instructions that also contain increases.
The sweater has a casing around the waist and it is described in detail how to create this. The body and sleeves are otherwise worked in stockinette st except for the last little part of the sleeves which are worked in twisted rib. The edges of the neck opening are also twisted rib.
The Junia Sweater is perfect for stroller rides or a trip to the park on cool days.
