Snorlige V is a summer version of Snorlige. A feminine oversized sweater with either a round neckline or a rounded V-neckline, bands of lace pattern, dropped shoulders and bands of lace and stockinette. The sweater is worked top-down.
Sleeve stitches are picked up around each armhole to work the sleeves top-down in the round in stockinette stitch (without lace pattern) until a long cuff is worked in 1×1 rib. The short sleeves are worked in rib only.
At the round neckline, stitches are picked up for further finishing to personal preference.
Snorlige V is constructed with 10 repeats of a Lace Pattern with 5 repeats at the Back and 5 repeats at the Front. At the Front the wavy curve of the Lace pattern is used in the neckline. Each size of the sweater has its own Lace Pattern so all sizes will have the same “look” and the sweaters will look alike.
Lace Patterns have charts and written instructions.
Snorlige V has 5 sizes: Sizes 1 (2, 3, 4, 5)
Corresponding to sizes XS/S (M/L, L/XL, 2XL, 3XL) with ease at body.
Make sure to choose a size that allows for the dropped shoulders and upper body to have some ease. If you find that the lower body is getting too wide, there is an option to decrease the width.
