ASHA is worked seamlessly top down. The upper part is knitted with two strands of yarn held together - one of Nepal and one of Suave - in an easy, textured dot stitch pattern. The pattern runs out in a V-shape at the front, the back and the sleeves, and merges into a panel knitted only with one single strand of Nepal. Once the ribbing for the neckline is finished, it is shaped with short rows. The work is continued in the round with raglan increases shaping the shoulders. The sleeves are separated from the body and finished later.
To make the change between the double and single-stranded part, the respective panels are finished with short rows to create the V-shape. The lower part of the pullover is worked with one thread of Nepal, first with short rows to fill the spaces between the triangles, after that in rounds down to the ribbed hemline.
The sizes correspond to bust circumference as follows: XS/S (M/L; XL/XXL) = 29 (32; 35; 39; 42; 47)”/ 74 – 82 (90 – 98; 107 – 119) cm bust circumference (measured at the body).
The pullover has a very relaxed fit and 3/4 length sleeves. Example: If you have a bust measurement of 35” (90 cm), then knit the pullover in size M/L and it will fit oversized with a positive ease of 10.6” (27 cm).
