Apogee is a set-in sleeve pullover with subtle diagonal side seam details. Knit in fingering weight wool, this sweater is perfect on its own in spring and fall, and an essential layering piece for winter. You’ll find yourself reaching for Apogee on the weekends to pair with jeans and boots, and during the work week to compliment a pencil skirt. Knit it in one color, as shown, or knit the back piece in a different hue to accentuate the sweater’s structure.

Notes
• Apogee is knit flat in pieces from the bottom up
and seamed. After seaming the neckband stitches
are picked up and knit in the round.
• Sweater is slightly cropped, length may be
added after the hip to bust shaping is completed
on the front and back pieces.
• On the back piece, the neck and shoulder shaping
are worked at the same time and on the front
piece, the armhole, neck and shoulder shaping
are worked at the same time. Row counts have
been marked in the pattern to help guide you as
you knit each section concurrently.
