    Size guide
    Porcelain Sweater Junior has a spacious shape. Length is measured in the middle of the back, excluding the neck band. Since the sweater is knitted topdown, it is easy to adjust the length of body and sleeves.

    Construction note
    The sweater is worked from the top. You start at the top of the back, then form the back of the shoulders down to the bottom of the armholes. Then, the front section of the shoulders is worked with short rows to form the shape of the shoulders. Then the neckline is shaped. When the upper sections of the back and front sections are completed, they are joined in the round and the body is finished on a circular needle in the round. Stitched are then picked up along the armholes with double pointed needles (or with magic loop) and the sleeves are worked topdown. Finally, stitches are picked up around the neckline to make a folded neckband.
