From the magazine: This easy-fit pullover is worked in four almost identical sections. The sleeves are knitted as extensions of the front and back pieces and are seamed along the top from neck to cuff. Lynn Gates suggests other design possibilities: work each section in a different pattern stitch or different color. In this sweater, inside-out seams quietly call attention to the sweater’s construction. A simple garter stitch collar finishes the neck. Worked in a wool-cotton-silk blend, the dolman shape drapes becomingly and is soft and comfortable to wear.
