Inspired by breezy walks by Lake Michigan, over the drawbridge and into the marina and down Bridge Street of Charlevoix, Michigan, for ice cream and shopping, Charlevoix is a light and easy pullover. With a seamless design, relaxed fit and gentle princess shaping that skims and flatters, Charlevoix will be a vacation to knit and wear.

  • short row shaping
  • picking up stitches
  • increasing and decreasing

NOTES
Charlevoix is knit from the top down. The back neck stitches are cast on first and increases are made for the shoulders and simultaneously short row shaping drops and curves the back neck. The neckline and sleeve caps are knit “contiguously” top down using a method adapted from Susie Myers (“SusieM” on Ravelry). After the neckline is joined, the sweater is knit in the round down to the hem.
Sleeve stitches are held on waste yarn and slipped to a needle after the body is completed, and knit top-down and in the round. The sweater is finished with garter stitch on neckline, sleeves and the split bodice hems.
To create the flattering silhouette, this design includes additional shaping around the curve of the shoulder, as well as waist and hip shaping along princess lines designed to follow the wearer’s curves. The split hem eases this relaxed pullover over the hip so that it drapes freely. Please spend some time looking over the schematic to help you choose your size and decide on any modifications to the waist or hip shaping. Some positive ease is recommended for an effortless and easy layer.
