Berry sweater is a loose and stretchy sweater in rib. The sweater has a short fit, a perfect combination with high waist trousers. The sweater is worked top down with a turtle neck, pretty shoulder details and raglan increases. Once the turtle neck is finished, you first work increases for the yoke, then for the sleeves. As you don’t work short rows at the neck, the sweater has the same length at front and back. Berry sweater has a tight and wide ribbed hem at the sleeves, which create a nice contrast to the wider fit. As the sweater is worked in rib, it can be perfectly adjusted to your desired fit when steam ironing it.
