Construction

  • Sweater is worked flat in pieces from the bottom up and sewn together. The neckband is picked up and worked circularly after garment assembly.
  • As hem falls to low hip length and body is worked straight without shaping, select a size that works for both chest and hip circumferences. Alternatively, work the back and front to your desired length from hem to bottom of armhole.
