Wigeon pullover is a drop shoulder boxy pullover worked flat in pieces and then seamed. Body has three large color blocks, and the two bottom ones are repeated in the sleeves. Top block drops from the shoulders to create the top part of the close fitting and full-length sleeves. Shoulders are shaped with short rows and joined using three-needle bind off. The back is slightly longer than the front with a slit in the side seam. Working in lace weight yarn takes some time, but the result is a rewarding lightweight pullover. For a shorter version, decrease the middle color block length.
