Pattern notes
This sweater is knitted in the round from the bottom up. The hem and sleeves are knitted back and forth to form the slits before joining to work in the round. The body is worked in garter stitch; instructions are given for working alternate knit and purl rows/rounds, but there are many techniques demonstrated online for knitting garter stitch in the round without purling.

The garland pattern for the yoke is knitted on a background of reverse stocking stitch. Yoke shaping is incorporated into the pattern.

Finished bust measurements are given with short rows worked for B cup. Each set of two short rows (1 repeat) added or taken away will increase/decrease the length at the bust by approximately 0.5cm (0.25in).
