THIS TOP-DOWN, completely seamless pullover sweater features a geometric color work pattern around the body and cuff and stripes on the shoulders and back. This sweater’s unusual topdown construction includes set-in sleeve caps that are worked at the same time as the rest of the shoulder. This unusual construction allows for the stripes to be perfectly matched and is also a lot of fun to work! The pieces of the shoulder are done in sections that grow from pick-up stitches, which helps to add a bit of extra structure right where it is needed most.
