EDIT 17/01/2012: Several knitters have pointed out that the waist shaping begins too late. It seems my torso is longer than the standard.
So, instead of “K body until approximately 7,5” (19cm) from underarm” you may want to begin the shaping before. (1” to 2” earlier)

EDIT 31/12/2011: I have updated the pattern for better clarity. Please be sure to download the latest Arleenv3 version.

Please note: Every size except 42” have been tested.

Arleen is a simple everyday pullover, with a light twist: a crocheted button-up slit that allows you to choose whatever size button you like!
Knitted from the top in one piece and seamless, it’s an easy and fast project. It is also highly customizable: want ¾ sleeves or tunic length? Just keep on knitting and there you go!

This is my very first pattern; any comments are welcome to help me improve my pattern writing skills. Hope you’ll enjoy this simple knit! :)
