The Oldies is a relaxed fit sweater knitted bottom-up. In the beginning, the front and back are worked separately and joined at the sides. Continue knitting in the stockinette stitch in the round until separating the front and back again at the underarm to start working flat the “Simple Diamond Stitch” panel. After joining the front and back at the shoulders, the stitches for the sleeves are picked up and worked in the round. This sweater is cropped length, but adjusting the body length is simple. Recommended to be worn with 10-35cm/4-14” positive ease. The sample was knit in size 1 with 30cm/12” positive ease at the bust.
