Leaf me sweater with a twist is – just as the name suggests – PlumMum’s Leaf Me Sweater, which has been through a transformation. This version is designed to be worked in two strands of silk mohair, it is easier to knit and without any sewing.
Leaf me sweater with a twist is slightly cropped (although it is easy to add length if desired) with puff sleeves, and a beautiful lace leaf pattern decorating the body. The sweater has an oversize fit and I recommend a positive ease of app. 7 – 10 cm [2.75 — 4 inches]. In other words, add 7 – 10 cm to your bust measurement to find the size suited to you.
The sweater is worked in the round from the bottom and up to the armholes, where the work is separated into front and back and then worked back and forth. The sleeves are worked in stocking stitch and added by picking up and knitting stitches around the armhole to work in the round.
Leaf me sweater with a twist is light as a feather and perfect for all seasons when wearing jeans, dresses and skirts.
