For a Good Egg is a cropped pullover worked from the top down starting with a cast on at the shoulders. After short row shaping, back shoulders are joined at the neckline and worked to the underarms. The back continues with both back and front side shaping and increases along its sloping front edge to the hem where stitches are held. Front panel stitches are picked up at each shoulder and worked in stripes that join at the base of the neckline and continue in a decreasing slope to the hem. Stitches are picked up around the armhole and worked with short rows to the underarm, then in the round to the wrist. I-cord bind off trims both bodice and sleeve hems, and 1x1 ribbing trims the neckline.

This is a quick and fun knit, enjoy!
