Lilian is a modern oversized sweater with slip-stitch cable pattern. It’s worked from top down with the sleeves being worked as seamless extensions of the body. The bottom edges of the sleeves are joined with Three-Needle Bind-off and short row shaping on shoulders and sleeves gives it a better fit. The garment is cropped but the length is easy to adjust.
