Simply Red

Name: Simply Red
Pattern: Jasmine from Nectar by Kim Hargreaves
Yarn: YarnArt Jeans 26, 150 g
Needle: 3.00 mm

The key word for this pattern is simplicity. Simple design, simple yarn, simple elegance. And the result - simply comfortable, soft and wearable.
Lots of modifications to the pattern to fit my figure and style - less stitches, no seams, no short rows for the neckline. Knitted all in the round up to the raglan decreases, knitted the two sleeves separately in the round to their respective raglan decreases, then connected the sleeves to the body with 3-needle stitch, separated the neck for the buttonbands and continued back and forth, decreasing for the raglan the back, the fronts and the sleeves simultaneously.
