(Grand) Agora is a cropped fitted cardigan for women.
It is knitted top-down seamlessly, with raglan sleeves and V-neck. Fronts and back are worked in reverse stockinette with some 1/1
twisted rib fun at the bottom of the body, while sleeves are worked in stockinette. It was created to highlight the waist and chest.
The V-neck draws attention to the bust, chest and neck while the 1/1 twisted rib play at the bottom of the body naturally narrows it and emphasizes the waist. The back is slightly fitted thanks to some decreases which follow the back curve.
The pattern provides two possible length for sleeves : long or ¾.
Depending on chosen length, you’ll emphasizes different part of your body : small hips with ¾ sleeves or hips with long sleeves.
Pattern contains both schematics, written explanations and one chart for each size.
As it is written for 11 sizes, I decided to divided the explanations in 3 pdf in order to not loose you with the numbers. A first pdf (‘Before beginning’) gives you final measurements for all the sizes and help you choose the correct size for you. The second has the explanation for size 34 to 44 and the third pdf, explanations for size 46 to 54.
You will have access to 6 files when downloading (3 for English, 3 for French).
