This pattern is available in English & in German.

Simply Flattering is knit from the top down and features set-in sleeves that are knit simultaneously, with the upper body.

The flattering fit comes from the shaping since the pullover is fitted at the top and then slightly flares out because of its A-Line shaping and its rounded shirt-tail finish at the bottom. Best of all, the shirt-tail shaping is worked without using short-rows.

Fitting tips are provided in the pattern and since it is worked from the top down, it can be tried on while still on the needles.
