This modern, everyday pullover features a slightly rounded hemline with a singular row of eyelets defining the subtle A-line shaping at each side. Worked in our hand-dyed organic merino Natural Colors yarn in fingering weight, this versatile sweater has excellent drape and is wonderfully soft. The lightweight stockinette stitch and graceful open neckline makes this great sweater wearable year-round.

Notes:
The sweater is worked from the top down. The yoke is begun with short-rows worked back and forth, then work is joined to work in the round with raglan armholes. A provisional cast-on is used to add stitches at the underarm. The rounded hem is worked back and forth using German short-rows.
