Augustins no 20 (ENG)
Augustins no. 20 is a wonderfully warm and hugging sweater, with draped sleeves and an oversized fit.
At its ribbing edges, the sweater has a series of laced detailings, which together with the elaborately laced collar, brings a nostalgic feel to the otherwise simplistic shape of the garment.

Worked: The sweater is knitted top-down in the round in Stockinette Stitch, with finishing broad ribbing edges. The yoke is formed by Raglan increases, whilst the body obtains its A-shape by making a series of continuous increases at each side of the work. To make the sleeves puffy, a row of double increases is knitted at the upper part of the shoulders. The ribbing edges of the body and sleeves, each have their own little series of laced detailings. Lastly, when the whole sweater has been made, a laced collar and I-cord ribbons are knitted onto the yoke, just below the neckline.
