The garment is knitted in traditional style from the base up, but with this one it is all in one piece, until you reach the armholes. Doing it in stripes appears to make it grow faster, as there is a change happening every second row, though you could use one color too and it would look just as good. The set in sleeves, coupled with the shaped body, that nips into the waist but remains wider at the hips and bust, gives a slimming line.
This garment fits a wide range of sizes, as there is a large amount of expansion created with 5×1 rib stitch, which expands when needed, but sits condensed if not. The sleeve also is shaped in at the elbow from the flared buttoned longer cuff. Bobbles on the band and high buttoning at the base make this truly a ‘must do’ garment that you will enjoy wearing everywhere.
