#FLASHDANCESWEATER

You are very welcome to share your version of FLASHDANCE SWEATER on Instagram using the hashtags above.

This knitting pattern is in English.

The Flashdance Sweater is an oversized, airy knit with chunky rib edges for a sporty look. The neckline is raised using short rows to improve the fit. I use the German short row method while increasing on both the right and wrong sides. It is knit from the top down and requires no seaming. When all increases have been worked the sleeve stitches are put on hold while the rest of the body is knit. The sleeves are then put back on the needles and knit one after the other.You can choose to knit your sweater on 8 mm / US 11 needles for a loose fit or on 10 mm / US 15 needles for a more oversized look. The pattern is the same for both versions but there is a difference between the needles sizes and thus the gauge and yarn yardage used will differ. All techniques are described in the pattern and there are links to instruction videos if needed. 
Always remember to make a swatch before starting and be sure to try on your garment as you knit it. You can always knit both sleeves and body longer or shorter for your desired custom fit. But please note that yarn yardage will change if you choose to customize.
