CONSTRUCTION
Jubilæum TRIC is knitted using the Ziggurat method, an all in one technique inspired by Tuulia's Tailored Sweater Method. The knitting begins with a regular long-tail cast on for back and shoulders. Each shoulder is worked in turn as you begin to build sleeve caps for the set in sleeves. The front bands flow from the collar and are knitted along with yoke and body. The rib detail at centre back provides swing for ample and other behinds. Sleeves are knitted top down from live stitches. Step by step instructions guide you from cast on to bind off. Helpful Tables keep track of rows and shaping, but is not required reading.

This updated version of TRIC is somewhat cropped when compared to the original making it more modern. Åsa has widened the front bands, eliminated the single buttonhole and embellished the bands, collar and cuffs, with a contrast color. She replaced the triangle detail on the back with three sleek columns of ribbing and narrowed the cuffs and finished them with a sideways rib to match the Front bands.
