The Balloon Sweater is an oversized sweater with balloon sleeves starting far down on the shoulder (drop shoulder) that are accentuated by a tight rib at the wrists. The Balloon Sweater is worked top-down. At first, while shoulder increases are worked on the yoke, at the same time short rows are used to shape the neck opening. Then, the front and back are worked separately (back and forth in stockinette st). Front and back panels are joined under the armhole and the rest of the body is worked in the round. Then sts are picked up for the sleeves, which are worked in the round on circular needles and at the end on double pointed needles (or using the magic loop technique). This means that the Balloon Sweater requires minimal finishing - all that is left to do is to weave in the ends. For the Balloon Sweater the tubular cast on and tubular cast off methods are used. This will create a neat edge and provide great elasticity along the rib. It is important for the finished result (both functionally and aesthetically) that this technique is used (it is especially important for the ribbing of the sleeves).
The sizes XS (S) M (L) correspond to bust measurements of about 85 (90) 95 (100) cm. Measure yourself before you start knitting to decide which size to knit. The Balloon Sweater is recommended to be worn with a positive ease of about 15-20 cm compared to your bust measurements, which is already built in the pattern.
