The sweater is a light and airy mohair sweater with a V-neck. It is worked with braids on body and sleeves. VesterbyCrea.No.11 is worked top down in two strands of mohair. Start by knitting the yoke flat including the fronts, back and sleeves with braids. Raglan increases are worked on sleeves, front and back. The V neck is worked with increases on every second right row. After working increases for V neck the sweater is connected in the round. Then body is worked with braid pattern. The body is finished with ribbing and stretchy/italian bind off method. Sleeves are knitted by moving sleeve sticthes on to main needle and picking up and knitting underarm stitches when you come to them, and then worked in the round in ribbing and braid pattern is placed on mid sleeve. Sleeves are also finished with stretchy/italian bind off method. V neck is worked in ribbing by picking up stitches along the V neck. It is recommended to knit the V neck before finishing the body, as V neck can pull the body a little but up and make the sweater length a little shorter. This sweater is assembly-free.
