Lillian, harbinger of spring! This garter-trimmed, color-block pullover is a delightful transition piece for welcoming warmer weather. Subtle shaping at its center front and back panels create a slimming visual, enhanced by the garter waistbands at its sides – a terrific detail. The nubbly garter stitch rounded shawl collar is fun to make with short rows that disappear into its shaping. This piece is worked bottom-up with easy seaming at its side panels. You’ll find this to be an enjoyable project and a welcomed addition to any wardrobe.
