Beach House Sweater is a delicious, well-fitting sweater that is warm and easy to wear everyday and at the same time with some elegant features that make it classic and stylish. It is knitted from top to bottom without any kind of assembly. First, it is knitted back and forth where the v-neck is formed. The body and sleeves are then divided, which are knitted in the round and finished separately. The long ribbed edges on the sleeves give it a cozy relaxed look with the option to fold up the ribbed edges so that the ribbing is in two layers and allows for e.g. to have a shirt underneath. The sweater is knitted approx. 5 cm shorter than normal sweaters, so that the ribbed edge sits nicely on the hips. I recommend an extra width compared to your body measurements (positive ease) of 5-10 cm. If you are over size XL, I would recommend an extra excess width of max. 5 cm.
