Easy to knit and exciting to look at: This sweater is perfect for the upcoming transition time to autum. The hand-dyed yarn (yak and silk) is very soft and the sunny color will prolong the summer.

The oversized sweater ist worked in rounds seamlessly from the top down. First the raglan yoke is worked top down to sleeve separation. Then you place the sleeve stitches on a stitcholder and finish the body in rounds down to the hem. Afterwards the sleeves are worked in rounds from top down to the cuffs.

The lace border is worked according to a chart included to the pattern.
