The Lykke Sweater from Knitscene Winter 2017 is in the Hygge Collection which is all about comfortable, wearable knits. "Lykke" means to make happy, so this relaxed fit sweater with cables at cuff, collar & hem is bound to be a favorite in your wardrobe. The body of this pullover is worked in the round from the lower edge to the underarm, then the upper front and back are worked separately back and forth. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up around the armholes and the sleeves are joined to the underarms with a perpendicular join. The sleeves are then worked in the round to the cuff.
