When my daughter started ballet this year she wanted aspecial sweater to wear only with her ballet outfit. Many of the girls in her class had store bought sweaters knit in acrylic in a tiny gauge that had extra long ties which wrapped around the body several times. I decided that this pattern should be worked in a larger gauge for speed, a warmer yarn for cold muscles, should have a more streamlined approach to the tie and include a floral inspired cable pattern for my blossoming dancer.

This sweater has a unique construction, the bottom band is completed first and stitches are held for the front edging as well as the second band. The main body is picked up and knit from the band and the front is shaped to the armholes. Then sleeve stitches are cast-on using a provisional cast-on and worked for the underarm width before being worked into the front of the sweater. The front and neck shaping are worked at the same time as the sleeve short rows to taper the wrist of the sleeve. At the back neck depth the stitches from the first sleeve are left waiting while the second sleeve and side are worked. When both are at the back neck depth stitches are cast-on for the neck. The rest of the sleeves are worked before seaming the sleeves with a three needle bind off and grafting the back together. The neckline is picked up and worked with short rows to curve the neck and then seamed together.

Please note, this is an advanced pattern
