Woodlark sweater has an easy knit and purl herringbone pattern on the body and sleeves. The sweater is knitted from the top and because of the pattern no further edge is needed. That provides a nice finish, but also makes it easy to adjust the length of the body and sleeves.

Construction note
Woodlark Sweater is worked top-down. You start at the top of the back, then form the back of the shoulders down to the bottom of the armholes. Then, the front section of the shoulders is worked, and the neckline is shaped. When the upper sections of the back and front sections are completed, they are joined in the round and the body is finished on a circular needle in the round. Stitched are then picked up along the armholes and the sleeves are worked top down.

DANSK

Woodlark sweater har et nemt sildebensmønster i ret og vrang på krop og ærmer. Mønsteret danner en god kontrast til den glatstrikkede overdel. Sweateren strikkes oppefra og mønsteret danner kant i sig selv, hvilket giver en fin afslutning, men også gør det ekstra nemt at regulere længden på krop og ærmer.

Konstruktion
Sweateren strikkes oppefra. Først strikkes ryggens øverste del fra de skrå skuldre og ned til bunden af ærmegabet. Derefter strikkes masker op langs ryggens skrå skuldre og forstykkets øverste del med skrå skuldre og halsudskæring strikkes. Når øverste del af både ryg og forstykke er strikket, samles de to dele og kroppen strikkes færdig rundt på rundpind. Derpå strikkes masker op langs ærmegabet og ærmet strikkes rundt på rundpind.
