“Peekaboo! I see you!”

This classic crew-neck top-down sweater gets downright playful with its faux undershirt peeking out of it. Garter stripes offer endless customization opportunities while using up yarn leftovers, and cute faux seams add a nice polished touch. There’s even an option to add pockets!

~~

Construction: This sweater is knit seamlessly from the top down, with the front yoke worked in garter stitch. Optional pockets can be worked; their linings require some seaming. Stitches are picked up on the wrong side close to the hem and cuffs, and worked in garter stitch in the round for the “undershirt” portion. The 3/4 sleeves are worked in the round.

Skills required: casting on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, knitting in the round, picking up stitches, binding off. If making pockets: yarn over, seaming.
