The Light Loop sweater by Other Loops is a simple and light sweater. The feminine details along the neckline and shoulder create a nice contrast to the boxy fit of the body with straight sleeves.
Here we work Light Loop Sweater in a lovely soft and light kit consisting of Önling No 11 (merino wool and cashmere) together with one strand of silk mohair.

Procedure: The sweater is worked top down in 1 piece and is thus sewing-free. First, the neckline is worked in ribbing. This is followed by short rows to shape the neckline while increases are worked for the shoulders. Then the yoke is worked with front and back panels worked separately until joined for the body, which is knitted in the round. Finally, stitches are picked up in the arm hole and the sleeves are knitted in the round.
