Vilvaere for wellbeing
Vilvaere is an oversized sweater with a V-neck and dropped shoulders. The sweater is worked top-down and starts with cast on stitches at the shoulders for the Back and is worked down to the underarms. Stitches are picked up at the shoulders of the Back to work the Front in two parts, that are joined after the neck shaping. The Front and Back are joined at the underarm and worked in the round until the hem. A lateral braid is worked before the hem is worked in stockinette stitches. Sleeve stitches are picked up around each armhole to work the sleeves top-down in the round to cuff. A lateral braid is worked before the sleeve cuffs and the stitches are bound off at desired length. At the neck, stitches are picked up for further finishing.
Vilvaere can be worked with short, long or without sleeves and with an I-cord or stockinette neckline edging. Customize the sweater as you please!
