Gaufres

This pattern is available for $7.00 USD buy it now

Gaufres is a top-down, seamless pullover with a detachable cowl.
The neckline is shaped with some short rows, then the yoke is worked in the round and shaped with interesting increases.
After separating the body and the sleeves, body is worked top down in the round to the hem and it is shaped with some increases to create a slightly A-line bottom. The pullover has a wide hem, that is worked in a beautiful waffle-like stitch pattern.
Sleeves are worked from the underarm to the cuff in the round without any shaping, adjusting their length is very easy.
The neckband is worked inside out, then folded outwards. If you want to wear the cowl, you can use the buttons to fasten it to the pullover.
