This is the DK weight sibling of the Marklee pullover. The fit is slightly oversized, but without being too boxy. A lateral braid across the shoulders adds a crisp, graphic detail. Slip-stitch ‘side seams’ angle sightly toward the front of the garment, creating a flattering line that ends at the sweet split hem.

Knit from the top, the shoulders are shaped with short rows, angling them downward for a better fit. Front and back are joined at the underarms and the body is worked in the round to the hem. The bottom edge dips slightly lower at the back, before dividing for the hem. Sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked in the round to the cuff.
