This pattern is in English.
The Oslo Sweater is knit from the top down. You begin by knitting the back flat on a circular needle. Then, stitches are picked up at the sides and each shoulder is worked separately and then both are joined at the front. The back and front are joined to knit in round under the underarms. The sleeves and neckband are knit from picked up stitches at the end.
The Oslo Sweater is designed to be worn with a positive ease of approximately 20 cm compared to your actual bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL correspond to a bust measurement of approximately 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 cm, and have those extra 20 cm of positive ease built into the pattern (as you can see from the finished measurements). Measure yourself to find the best size for you before casting on. For instance, if you have a bust measurement of 87 cm, you should knit a size S.
