Knitting pattern in English for a sportive, oversized sweater with contrast colored statement stripes on body and sleeves, a round neck and ribbed hems for body and sleeves.
The sweater is knitted top down with raglan increases. To form the round neck, you knit a couple of rows back and forth before you close the sweater to the round and the yoke is going to be finished. Before the sleeves are separated, the first block of statement stripes is worked. After separating the sleeves from the body, you are going to continue to knit the statement stripes in contrasting colors and finish the body with a 2x2 ribbed hem. The sleeves are knitted in rounds with statement stripes too and are finished with a 2x2 ribbed hem too. In the end you are going to attach a 2x2 ribbed hem collar to the round neck.
Available in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL und XXL.
