This sweater has a square neckline, a loose-fitting bodice with a laced central motif, a belt emphasizing its tight-fitting waistline and long sleeves reprising in their central part the laced motif.
In the pictures below you can see details of Bette.
Here you can see how the neckline band edge has been knitted separately and then joint to the bodice with a backstitch seam.
Knitted to fit a XS size, it has been realized using:
- 300 gr of super fine pure wool yarn in burgundy colour, (recycled from a previously knitted sweater);
- needles 2,5mm (for ribbed band edges) and 3mm;
- yarn needle;
- 1 metal bucket and 80cm approx. of velvet ribbon width 5cm for the belt.
The stitches used are:
- 2k/2p ribs (edges);
- Stockinette stitch (used in the back bodice and mixed to the lace motif in bodice front and in sleeves);
- Arcs and lines laced motifs (see the chart);
