I have been wanting to make this sweater for awhile and now have found the perfect yarn. An easy wearing pullover with just enough shaping to make it flattering and just enough detail to make it interesting. I used Anzula’s Oasis which is a silk and camel mix. It has a wonderful drape making it just right for this tunic style pullover that skims over the hips. The drape plus the beautiful sheen give elegance to this simple design.
Finished bust: 30 (33.25, 36, 39.25, 42, 45.25, 48, 51.25, 54, 57.25, 60)”; Size 33.25” modeled with 1/2” negative ease.
Yarn: Anzula Oasis, 70% silk, 30% camel; 343m (375 yds) per 114g skein; color: Kale, 3 (3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5) skeins, 797 (883, 956, 1043, 1116, 1202, 1275, 1361, 1434, 1521, 1594) yds.
Needles: Size 4/3.5mm 24” circular needle and set of 4 or 5 double-pointed needles.
Other: Stitch markers, stitch holders, tapestry needle.
Gauge: 20 sts and 26 rows = 4” in Stockinette Stitch.
Notes: This pullover is constructed from the top down in one piece with short row shoulder shaping and set-in sleeves. There is slight waist shaping worked on the back. The length of the body can be adjusted by working more rounds after the Increase rounds or by working more Increase rounds. If you desire a straighter fit, you may leave out the waist shaping. If you change the waist shaping, make sure you end up with an odd number of front and back sts between the side Seed Stitches for the bottom bands. The length of the sleeves may be easily adjusted.
