AllTerrain: A texture-filled pullover featuring artistic stitch arrangements. Each texture is presented on different areas of the sweater, making it visually appealing and a real talking point! It is knitted flat and in pieces. The sleeves are worked from the top down, giving you the option to work it directly from the shoulder edge, or free standing, plus allowing you to work to your desired length. The neck edge is picked up and knitted in the round - you can decide whether or not to have a short or long collar.
