Sidelines Sweater

Because of the sideways construction, the Sidelines Sweater’s wide rib texture with slipped stitch detail turns into a textural horizontal stripe pattern that is combined with a wide hem, and cuffs in twisted ribbing and a folded neckline (optionally worked in contrasting colors).

The modular construction makes this an (almost) seamless project.

Sidelines is a casually oversized sweater that can be tailored to your preferences: With 8 body and sleeve circumferences, 6 lengths from cropped to tunic-length, and 3 neckline options to choose from, you can mix and match to create your dream sweater!

DETAILS

Mix & Match Sizing:

Customize your size by combining any circumference, length and neckline option:*

  • Finished Bust Circumference for circumferences 1 (2, 3, 4, 5)[6, 7, 8]: 
96 (106, 117, 127, 137)[147, 157, 167] cm / 38 (42, 46, 50, 54)58, 62, 66”
including 15 cm / 6” positive ease – Pick a size that is about 15 cm / 6” wider than your bust circumference (body measurement); less ease will result in a tighter-fitting sweater, more ease will result in a more over-sized sweater.
  • Finished Length (at center back) for lengths a (b, c, d, e, f): 
36 (44, 52, 60, 68, 76) cm / 14 (17½, 20½, 23½, 27, 30)”
  • Neckline Circumference for options S / M / L: 47 / 64 / 77 cm / 18½ / 25½ / 30½”

* Circumferences 7 & 8 can’t be combined with Length a. Any other combination is possible!
