The Urban Polarsweater ist a soft and warm sweater, worked with two strands of yarn on a large needle size. It is equally suitable for walks in the woods, strolling around the city, at the seaside and even for work. The neck is worked with two ribbed layers, so it has a lovely snug fit around the neck without being too tight. The zipper makes it even more practical, while it makes a nice accessory at the same time. This sweater is worked from the bottom towards the top and the zipper will be sewn in with one strand of „Børstet Alpakka“ later on. After that, the sleeves are picked up from the armhole and worked until the desired length is achieved. The women’s version has a slightly tighter fit than the men’s version, which is a bit more of a unisex-model. Just check the measurements and decide, which one you like the most for yourself.
You can also choose a zipper that is longer or shorter than suggested. Just make sure to adjust the length of the neckpiece according to the chosen zipper. Do not to buy a zipper that differs too much from the recommended one, since it would make it very hard to assemble everything.
