Sweater is worked from the top down. All pieces of this sweater are picked up and grown on for minimal hand finishing. This pattern is partially knit flat and partially knit in the round. All DEGEN sweaters are designed to allow for the maker to adapt for their body. We recommend you grab a sweater you love, pick the closest width size and mimic those length measurements.
