The Retrofit sweater is designed to be a relaxed sweater with up to 10cm (4”) positive ease. The sweater is worked from the bottom up. The body is worked up to the armholes, followed by the two sleeves up to the armhole. The stitches for the sleeves and body are then joined and the yoke is worked. The back hem of the sweater is ‘dipped’ with short row shaping.
