“Simple is the best” perfectly describes the pullover.

It is worked from the top down with raglan shoulders. After the neckline is shaped (no short rows!), the fronts are joined to work in the round.

The entire pullover is worked with a stretchy slipped stitch pattern, which gives the lovely subtle texture. I hope this piece will be your all-time favourite item.

What a pleasure to work with such a gorgeous yarn from SKEIN! One of the softest yarns I ever knit with. The perfect ratio of the silk gives a great drape to the pullover.
