Whitetop is an oversized, drop sleeved pullover with just a touch of colorwork. Knit from the bottom up, this seamless sweater will be a favorite cozy cold weather pullover. Whitetop is designed to be worn with 6-10” of positive ease, but has fitted sleeves. I encourage you to use the schematic to customize the fit of your sweater! Model is wearing size 40.5” with 6.5” of positive ease.

Knitting in the round, simple increases and decreases, simple colorwork, short rows, picking up stitches, three needle bind off

Whitetop uses the yarn over short row method, which requires no wrapping or picking up stitches. I highly recommend this method, as it is completely invisible and is very simple. A tutorial for this method of short rows can be found here: http://cocoknits.com/resources/tutorials/short-rows/
