    The yoke of this top-down sweater is knit flat with garter stitch yoke shaping in the main color. The body continues in the round with reverse stockinette stitch to show off the purl bumps. A contrast color sleeve is knit with raglan shaping and joined to the main color yoke while you knit it for a seamless join. Optional thumbholes create a cozy sleeve cuff and short rows raise the ribbed collar for a stylish stream-lined fit.

    Choose worsted or aran weight yarn to knit this unique Westknits sweater named after Monsieur Plastique, my fabulous friend and makeup artist in the photos.


  • Sizes
    36 (41, 45, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64)” / 91 (104, 114,
    122, 132, 142, 152, 163)cm chest circumference. These
    sizes are the finished measurements of the sweater.

    I recommend selecting a size 2 – 4” / 5” – 10cm larger
    than your actual chest circumference for a fit with a bit of
    positive ease.

    The gray and blue sample is the 45” / 114cm size shown on a 40” / 102cm chest circumference.
