Collett sweater is a sweater with fine shoulder details and with a slim half- turtleneck. The armhole openings are slightly deeper and the body has a wide fit, and the sleeves have a tight fit for a feminine look. The sweater is worked top down with increases at the body for the delicate shoulder details first, thereafter for body and sleeves at the same time. You finish the sweater with short rows at the back before the ribbing starts, so that it is longer at the back side. As the sweater is worked top down, you can easily adjust the length while knitting and no final sewing is necessary.
