Take it easy is a top-down, seamless pullover with set-in sleeves, wide scoop neck and gentle waist shaping.
Upper yoke is worked first from shoulders to the top of the sleeve caps, the shoulders are shaped with short rows. The stitches of the fronts are picked up from the cast on edge of the back and the fronts are worked to the top of the sleeve caps.
Then the pieces are joined together and the stitches of the sleeve caps are picked up. From this point back, fronts and sleeve caps are worked simultaneously to the underarm.
Body is worked in one piece from the underarm to the hem with waist shaping.
Sleeves are worked from the underarm to the cuff in the round.
All edgings are worked with a very simple but interesting method, that creates beautiful, clean lines.
