The Urban Polar sweater is a thick and warm sweater, worked with double thread on thick needles. A perfect fit for the city, your way to work, outside in the forest or on the water.
The neckline is folded in half and worked in rib, so that it fits perfectly – but not too tight.
The zipper makes it not only easier to put the sweater on and off, but is also a cute detail for the eye.
The sweater is worked bottom up. The zipper is sewn by hand with 1 thread of Børstet Alpakka. The sleeves are picked up around the armhole openings and are worked to your desired length.
You can adjust the length of your chosen zipper by +/- a couple of cm, by working the neck higher or lower. It is not recommended to buy a zipper that differs a lot to the stated measurements above. The zipper can be bought at www.witredesign.no.
This model is designed as a unisex version. It is slightly wider than the “slim fit” version and can be worn by women and men.
The sweater is designed to be worn with approx. 10 cm positive ease (10 cm larger than your bust measurements). The stated measurement on the front page is for the finished garment.
