The Braided Embers Sweater is designed to be a simple, cozy crop sweater that has a big chunky braid down the front, and optional contrast edging. It is a crew neck style, and is worked top down. The sleeves are a loose balloon style sleeve with a fitted ribbed cuff. The bottom hem is a 1x1 ribbed hem. The sweater is designed to fall at a crop level, but you are welcome to modify length as desired. It is a size inclusive design.

Sizes offered: 30(34, 38, 42){46, 50, 54}(58, 62, 66, 70)
These sizes reflect the FINISHED bust measurement
Size 70 is untested

Needles required:
8 mm for body and sleeves
6 mm for collar ribbing
6.5 mm for bottom/cuff ribbing
may need other size needles to meet gauge
I recommend using a set of interchangeable needles, as you will need 16” cord for the neck and beginning of the raglan, plus one or two longer cords that correspond to your bust size.

Gauge: 12 sts x 14 rows = 4 x 4inches (stockinette, in the round, blocked)

Yarn required: any bulky weight yarn to match gauge
I used indie dyed Treehouse Knits bulky for the my contrast edge sample, and KnitPicks Biggo, which is a more affordable yarn, for my solid sample.

Yardage required:
You can do this sweater in one solid colour, or with a contrast edging.
