About The Paris Sweater
The Paris Sweater is worked in stockinette stitch top-down. The stitches of the front shoulder are cast on using the provisional cast on method, so that the back is worked from the same stitches. This results in an invisible transition between front and back. The front shoulders are worked separately and joined under the neckline. The back shoulders are worked the same way as the front, except they are not joined under the neckline. Stockinette stitch is worked back and forth. The front and back of the yolk are worked separately and joined under the arms. Now, stockinette stitch is worked in the round. The body is finished with ribbing. The sleeves are a little puffed by the shoulder seam. The sleeves are worked by knitting back and forth and stitches are picked up from the body in the beginning and end of the row. When the sleeves reach under the arms, they are worked in the round until they have the desired length. The sleeves are finished with ribbing. The colour changes every 10th row/round. When you choose colours for your Paris Sweater, you must choose a dominant colour. This will be the colour of the ribbing.
