A flirty lace insert adds a bit of fun to this seamless slash-neck pullover with 3/4 length set-in sleeves. Aiken begins with the upper back which is knit and put on hold. Stitches for the front are both picked up and cast on to create the wide neckline, and the front is knit identical to the back. The front and back are joined in the round when stitches are cast on for the underarms, and the body is knit down in one piece. The sleeve stitches are picked up from the armholes and worked downwards towards the cuff, incorporating short rows to shape the sleeve caps. It’s best worn with 0-3 inches of negative ease.
Please note that the pattern includes written instructions only. Sorry chart lovers!
