Put your knitting skills to work and make this cute color-blocked pull-over with playful scalloping. The body is knit seamlessly from the top down, and the sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole and shaped using short rows. Its cropped length makes this sweater a relatively quick knit, and it creates a flattering silhouette when worn with a full skirt.
