This is the sweater version of the Laila’s Cardigan, a basic garter sweater perfect for spring and summer. Just like our other sweaters and cardigans, Laila is a basic knit, the kind that can be wear with everything 🙂
Body and sleeves are knit separately in garter stitch, bottom up, then joined at the yoke. Both body and sleeves are knit in the round.

TEST KNIT GUIDELINES:
- The deadline is April 30th, so 3 weeks from today (this is a fairly quick project, but I added 1 week so you can order and get your yarn, then 2 more weeks to complete it).
- I would appreciate if you could post the finished project on your Ravelry account, linking it to the pattern page (i'll send the link when I upload the pattern on Ravelry ;).
- Please do post the progress and/or a finished photo of your project, tagging me (@jojo.tricot) and using the hashtag #lailassweater on your feed and stories.
- Also, I would love to have your feedback: is the pattern clear and pleasant to work with? Is it too small/big for the size? Things like that. Also, please let me if the yardage used in the project was accurate, specially if you’ve used a different kind of yarn then the one suggested.
Once again, thank you so much for helping me by testing this pattern! I really hope you enjoy your time working at it and love the end result as much as I did! And please let me know if I can clarify any question you may have during the process.
