Playful narrow stripes and an adjustable neckline make Lenja a comfy addition to nearly anyone’s casual wardrobe. The neckline can be made tighter or looser by adjusting the twisted cord, which is threaded through a knitted tube. Leave it wide for a relaxed look, or make it narrow to create a ruffly gathered effect in the front.
Lenja is knit in one piece from the top down, using short rows and careful increases to create well-fitting shoulders and sleeve caps. Photo tutorials and sketches are included to make knitting the special techniques simple, and the included garment schematic helps you get the perfect fit. It’s designed to be worn with a cosy 10 cm (4 in) of positive ease.
The stripes are a playground for colour! Have fun choosing your own colour scheme – you can even sneak a third colour in randomly throughout the sweater for a cheeky touch.
