This design was inspired by the typical fairy lights that bling up any party or space. The Fiesta Swing Sweater evokes that same feeling of magic, sparkle and joy, spreading a celebration mood.

The sweater is worked flat with raglan construction. Back, front and sleeves are worked separately from the bottom up. When all parts are worked and sewn, stitches are picked up and worked circular to knit the turtleneck (therefore, 6.00 and 7.00 mm circular needles are needed for the neck). The sweater is designed to have a positive ease of about 5 cm.
