 INTRODUCTION

The Ditte Sweater is knitted top down in the round. The neck is shaped with short rows, and the round yoke with increases before each pattern sequence. It is made up of a total of 5 different pattern sequences repeated across the body and sleeves. Body and sleeve length are determined by the number of sequences. If you want to adjust the length, you may add or remove a sequence. I recommend that you print a copy of the pattern.  That makes it easier for you to count and cross out rows as you work your way through the pattern. You may keep the digital version on your phone or tablet to enable you to use the links for the videos.
