This pullover features graceful flared sleeves and a tunic-length flared skirt that will flatter a range of body types. Set-in sleeves provide a great fit. The sweater changes color at the waist and elbow with a band of stranded-colorwork snowflakes to soften the line and draw interest.

The body is worked in the round from the bottom up. Front and back are worked separately after binding off for the armholes. Sleeves are worked bottom-up in the round, with the sleeve cap worked flat. The neckline and hems are finished with applied i-cord edging.
