Throwback Thursday (Worsted)
This TBT design is a nod to an old 1980s rollneck but updated with a split hem, an easy lace + cable design at the sides, and a set-in sleeve that is worked simultaneously with the upper bodice. Loose fitting but not overly sized.
A photo tutorial guides you through the top-down construction for what is possibly the easiest set-in sleeve you’ll ever work--no sewing, no picking up stitches around the entire armhole, no short rows on the sleeve cap. Just carefully placed increases within the easy stockinette.
To maintain a seamless translation from the rolled neck trim and the bodice, you’ll be doing a provisional cast on--but no worries! It’s totally easy, too, and I’ve created a video tutorial showing you how (complete with a mispronunciation of the word “Provisional” . Hey, we’re a judgement-free zone here:)
The pullover is intended to be worn with 1-3” of positive ease (that is, 1” to 3” larger than your bust measurement).
