Gianna is as comfortable as your favorite Tee-shirt yet much more stylish. Wear it alone or layered over a tank or your favorite shirt. The raglan style pullover has a wide neck line and Vertical Drop Stitch panels down the front, back and sleeves. It is worked in the round from the top down for try-on-as-you-go customization. Pattern instructions are for the long sleeve/bottom of hip Avocado version shown in the top photo. Pattern is easily customized for shorter sleeves and length as shown in the Cocoa version.

Vertical Drop Stitch makes for a very stretchy fabric which will gently follow your curves without having to add waist shaping. The pullover’s ‘to fit’ chest measurements (shown above) are much larger than the actual finished pullover’s measurements because of the amount of stretch the dropped stitches add. The Avocado pullover is shown here in a Size 2 which has a finished measurement of 27” on a model with a 36 1/2” chest. The Cocoa version is a size 1 with a finished measurement of 25 1/2” and is the better fit for a 36 1/2” chest. To find your size, select a ‘to fit’ measurement nearest your actual chest size. If you are exactly in the middle, knit the smaller size.
