The sweater is oversized, approximately 20 cm
wider than your actual bust width. I recommend comparing the measurements in the pattern with a sweater that has the ease you would like, particularly if you wish the sweater to be smaller or larger than stated in the pattern.
Width: 110 (115) 120 (125) 130 (135) 140 cm
Length: 55 (55) 57 (57) 59 (61) 63 cm
Sleeve length: 45 cm or desired length

The sweater is knit with two strands of yarn held to- gether. For a more airy version, use only one strand of Rauma Vams Pt3 – but please pay attention to the gauge and note that you will use more yarn than stated in the pattern.

8 mm and 6 mm, or the needle size you need to obtain the stated gauge

12 stitches = 10 cm in stockinette

The sweater has an oversized fit with seamed sleeves and
no shoulder shaping, giving it a t-shirt shape. It fits equally well for women and men. The body is worked in the round until you divide for front and back pieces. The braille writing
is knitted into the front and back pieces. Pick your favourite word - use the empty chart to play around with the braille.
