Distract Me is a boat neck, light-weight pullover for the warmer days of the year. It can be used as a beach cover-up or as a nice top for going out on a summer’s evening. Distract Me is knit with fingering weight sock yarn from the top down, beginning with the neck ribbing. The front and back panels are knit separately and joined at the underarms. The color work and waist shaping help to make the long stretches of body rounds almost fly by! Distract Me includes top-down set in sleeves. Sleeve stitches are picked up from the armhole, afterwards short rows are worked to create the shoulder cap. The sleeves are elbow-length and are finished off with contrasting color. A contrasting garter ribbing is added to the neckline to bring color to the top.

Distract Me („Lenk mich bitte ab“) ist ein leichter Sommer-Pulli mit einem breiten Ausschnitt, der für die wärmeren Jahrestage gut geeignet ist. Dieser Pulli wird mit leichter 100% Merino Fingering- oder Socken-Wolle von oben nach unten in einem Stück gestrickt. Die Rücken- und Vorderteile werden zuerst in Hin- und Rückreihen gestrickt und beim Armausschnitt für den Körper zusammengefügt. Die Farbstreifen und Taillen-Formung am Körper sind die Ablenkungen, die Sie brauchen damit das Stricken nicht langweilig wird. Die Ärmel sind auch von oben nach unten gestrickt. Die Ärmelmaschen werden zuerst um den Armausschnitt aufgenommen, danach wird die Schulterkappe durch verkürzten Reihen geformt. Die Ellbogen-langen Ärmel werden mit Farbsteifen fertiggestrickt.
