This layering pullover makes a lovely addition to your wardrobe. Worked in a fine soft yarn like this baby alpaca and silk blend, the result is both comfortable and elegant. Simple straight lines and easy construction are offset by the rounded hem and the geometric lines at the yoke. Make it as written, or use the pattern as a blank canvas for your own modifications.

Skills Needed
Knit/purl, working in the round, picking up and knitting, mattress stitch, reading from chart. Short rows used to shape hem.

Construction Notes
The body and sleeves are worked in the round from the bottom up to the underarms. The rounded hem is shaped with short rows. The front, back, and sleeves are worked flat from the underarms. To finish, the shoulders are joined, the sleeves are set in, and the neck band is picked up and knit.
