PATTERN
This boxy dropped shoulder sweater is as sweet as the name implies. A round neckline starts with 1 x 1 ribbing which highlights the stockinette roll that follows. In fact all the edges are rolled even the flowers are knit in stockinette stitch, folded and then rolled. The leaves under the flowers are crochet. The front has a knit in pleat gathered beneath the flowers. Leave out the pleat and flowers and this makes an adorable pullover for a boy.
. The easy to follow pattern includes:
• Schematic with dimensions
• A helpful tracking sheet
• Diagrams and full explanations for techniques
• A pattern helpline
