Knitting pattern for sweater with specks, a classic sweater design knitted in the extraordinary yarn, Önling No 5. We fell completely for this very special yarn. The yarn is made of cashmere, silk, alpaca and wool. Lots of flecks provide a wonderful play of colors. The yarn itself is so exciting and different that the design for this sweater should be very simple, so the yarn can appear at its best. And then just with some fun, delicate, surprising details.

Directions: The sweater is worked in the round, from the top down. Cast on using a temporary crochet edge, so the size of the neckline can be adjusted subsequently. Short rows are worked across the shoulder and the neckline at the beginning to give a higher neckline. The yoke is worked with increases in raglan. Hereafter the work is divided and both sleeves and body are worked separately. Body is worked with short rows at the bottom, so the body is longer at the back than the front. The sleeves are worked in the round. Try on the sweater and then the temporary cast on edge is removed and a neckline is knitted on.
