A top-down A-lined pullover with curved lines running across the body and sleeves. The construction is simple yet interesting, using short rows extensively throughout. The tightly spun yarn is recommended to show off the striped texture. It is a versatile wear with playful details.
Gauge (after blocking):
27 stitches & 40 rows = 4” / 10 cm in Stockinette stitch with US 2.5 (3 mm) needle
Sweater is knitted in the round from the top down. Sleeves are knitted at the same time as body using the contiguous set-in sleeve method until the underarm. Short rows are used to shape the yoke, the lowered back hem, the wavy front hem and the sleeves. The sleeves can be knitted using the magic loop method, or using DPNs. Lastly, neck stitches are picked up and work Lateral braid for clean finishing.
