The Celeste Sweater is worked from the top down and has a circular yoke. First the neck edge is worked, then the yoke is worked in the round in the charted colorwork pattern using 5 different colors. Short rows are worked after the stranded pattern has been completed to raise the back and create a nice fit. The body and sleeves are worked in the round in stockinette stitch and finished with a rib edge.

Please note that stranded knitting often needs to be worked on a needle 0.5-1 mm larger to maintain the same gauge as the stockinette stitch sections worked in one color. For this reason, you need to work a swatch in both the stranded colorwork pattern and in solid stockinette stitch before starting your sweater. 

This pattern contains charts with the colors of the brown Celeste Sweater alongside blank charts that can be colored with your own chosen colors.

Size guide

The Celeste Sweater is designed to have approx. 15 cm [6 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be approx. 15 cm [6 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XXS (XS) S (M) L (XL) 2XL (3XL) 4XL (5XL) are designed to fit a bust circumference of 75-80 (80-85) 85-90 (90-95) 95-100 (100-110) 110-120 (120-130) 130-140 (140-150) cm [29½-31½ (31½-33½) 33½-35½ (35½-37½) 37½-39½ (39½-43¼) 43¼-47¼ (47¼-51¼) 51¼-55 (55-59) inches]. 

The measurements for the finished sweater are listed on the front page of the pattern. Begin by measuring yourself before starting your project, to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 85 cm [33½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size XS. A size XS sweater has a bust circumference of 100 cm [39¼ inches] which in the given example would give you 15 cm [6 inches] of positive ease.
