Portland Top-Down Pullover #111
Portland, Maine, is a great seaside city with a vibrant downtown, yet it remains within easy reach of plenty of outdoor fun. Mainers bring a sense of style to their outdoor pursuits, and the state is famous as the home of great outdoor gear. This pullover is aptly named, since it boasts comfort, warmth, and style, all in one. Work the waist and hip shaping as given, or omit both and work the piece straight down from the underarm for a looser fit.
This is a top-down, set-in sleeve pattern, with short-row shaping to shape the sleeve cap (instructions on how to work short rows are included). There are also tips on how to customize your fit.
