The Lyon Sweater is worked from the top down. First the top part of the back yoke is worked with increases, then the shoulders are worked from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the slanting sides at the back yoke. Stitches are then picked up and knitted along the sides of the shoulders and the rest of the yoke is worked together on the circular needle, first back and forth and then in the round. The body is worked in the round on a circular needle, and the sleeves are worked in the round on double-pointed needles or on a circular needle using the Magic Loop technique. At the end a folded neck edge with built in double knitting is worked. The Lyon Sweater is worked with stripes, the placements of which are described in the pattern.
The Lyon Sweater is designed to have approx. 20 cm of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be approx. 5 cm larger in circumference than your bust measurement in the smallest sizes but progressively less in the larger sizes. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm. The measurements for the finished sweater can be found on the front page of the pattern. Please note that these measurements are only achieved if the correct gauge is obtained. Measure yourself before beginning your project, to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S sweater has a bust circumference of 108 cm which in the given example would give you 18 cm of positive ease.
