Don’t let the simple silhouette fool you—the design of this sweater is the ultimate combination of clever construction and easy knitting. Knit in pieces and seamed, this pullover features slit pockets just above the front hips. See Kiyomi’s tutorial in this issue for more information on how to work this unique pocket technique.
