Braid sleeve sweater (english)
Difficulty 4 of 5
Braid sleeve sweater is a 3/4 sleeve mohair sweater perfect for cool summer days or transition time. Of course, it can also be used in the winter season, depending on how litter-cut you are.
It’s knitted from the top down. The neck is shaped with short rows at the same time as the cable pattern over the shoulders, the pattern continues down the sleeve and finishes before the rib edge of the forearm.
The pattern is described both with and without shape design. With shape design, you get a tight-fitting sweater using short rows that highlight the chest. Around the abdomen extra space can be made, which is ideal if you have little you want to hide. Without shape design, you get a classic raglan sweater with short rows over your neck.
For the sweater to fit snugly around the chest, you should choose your size based on your dimensions under your chest and not on your normal size or breast width. The sweater has a tight fit with ease of 7-9cm.

- Twisted rib.
- Increases, both to the right and to the left.
- Short rows for both neck, and chest incisions.
- Collecting sts for under the sleeve.
- Cables over 6sts to the right and to the left.
