Classic and elegant, the fitted Begonia Pullover features an overlapped v-neck on both the front and back, and offers options for body and sleeve lengths. Garter rib edges and side panels add interesting details to an otherwise simple style. The body is worked in the round from the bottom up then divided at the armhole. Stitches for the sleeve are picked up around the armhole and worked in short rows for the sleeve cap. The v-neck edging is worked along with the body, so finishing for the Begonia Pullover is minimal.

Pink pullover is shown with shorter sleeves, shorter body, and 3” negative ease in the bust. Green pullover is shown with longer sleeves, longer body, and 0” ease in the bust.
