The Lemon Sweater is my first sweater pattern!
It has a multicolored design from the neck until the bustline and big blocks of color at the end of the sleeves and body.
The sweater has a comfortable fit with straight sleeves and a medium high neckline.
The pattern is knit from the neck down and doesn’t need any sewing.
For a sweater this is a relatively quick knit thanks to the thicker yarn.

The sweater comes in 7 different sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, 2X and 3X.

Amount of yarn
The following numbers are estimations made from my own sweater. I have quite a long torso and prefer my sweaters long, so a few test knitters ended up needing less yarn.
