Waldo is a very classic striped sweater, with the European shoulder-design and a relaxed fit. The sweater is knitted top down in one piece, starting from the top of the back, which is knitted flat and from where stitches are picked up to form the front part. The front and back parts are joined in the round from the armpits. The rest of the work is knitted in the round. Both the sweater hem and the sleeves have a long ribbing.
