I wanted to knit simple dolman sleeve pullover. It is knitted by sideways and almost in one piece except neck opening. Using bigger needles and lighter yarn, it knits up very fast.
Because of larger gauge, yardage will tend to be varied by knitter. Be careful about it, you need to prepare enough amount of yarn.

Yarn; smooth and lightweight bulky yarn like Rowan kidsilk aura, Rowan alpaca cotton, and so on.
Or combination of laceweight mohair and sportweight merino wool works good. Yardage is about 450-500m.
Needles; 7mm or appropriate needle (circular or dpns)
Notions; stitch marker, spare needle or holder, tapestry needle

Tension; 12 stitches x 17 rows
Size; - Adult women S (M, L)
finished Width of bottom part – 39 (43, 46) cm,
Center back to sleeve – 59 (61, 63) cm,
