Gael is worked seamlessly in rounds from bottom up with the yarn held double throughout. Body and sleeves are first worked separately and then joined for knitting the yoke. Both body and the sleeves begin with a ribbing before they are continued in stockinette stitch. A stranded colourwork Norwegian pattern is worked into sleeves and the yoke. Decreases for the shoulder are made throughout the yoke. The neckline is shaped with German short rows and ends with a ribbed inverted turtleneck.
S (M; L; XL; XXL) = 35 (39; 42; 45; 48)“ / 90 (98; 106; 114; 122) cm bust circumference (measured at your body).
The sweater has a relaxed fit and should be worn with a positive ease of 4” (10 cm). Example: If you have a bust measurement of 35“ (90 cm), then knit the sweater in size S and it will fit loosely with a positive ease of 4“ (10 cm).
