Flattering ribbed sweater knit in the round without seams. Darts are carefully shaped to maintain the flow of the rib pattern and create a perfect fit. The unusual neckline frames your face at the front and curves round to form an interesting detail at the back. Tubular cast ons create perfect edges, while the neck edge can be neatly finished with a tubular bind off, or for a slightly different effect the picot bind off pictured. A simple variation on the basic rib pattern creates flared cuffs for the long sleeves. Snow White was designed to flatter a wide range of shapes and sizes and so the pattern is given in seven sizes, ranging from a 28 - 54” bust. For a perfect individual fit the stitches can be slipped onto scrap yarn at key points and the sweater in progress can be tried on.
