Arching braids give elegant structure to this modern drop-shoulder design. Three-quarter length sleeves, a slightly a-line shape to the body, and a flattering split hem make for a comfortable and contemporary wardrobe staple.

Worked seamlessly from the top down, Archer features an angled shoulder line that ensures a fantastic fit. Enjoy the rhythm of knitting gently contrasting stripes or embrace the beauty and simplicity of a single color. Knit in fingering weight wool, this pullover will transition smoothly from season to season.

Instructions are provided for working Archer all in one color, or with 2 x 2 stripes for the body. The design begins at the upper back, and both versions are worked the same until the arch shaping is begun. From that point, separate instructions are given for the striped or solid body.
