From Kiyomi: “Simple shaping, contrasting colors, and rustic textures make this basic pullover a wardrobe staple. Reminiscent of that comfy flannel shirt, the curved front and back hems are flattering on almost all figures and are casual yet modern.” Once the curved hems are knit, the pieces are joined in the round to form the body. The bottom rib edging is picked up at the end.
