A simple, seamless, 3/4-sleeved pullover knit from the top down. The construction method is adapted from Barbara Walker’s top-down simultaneous set-in sleeves in Knitting from the Top. The back shoulders are knit separately and shaped with short rows. They are joined by casting on the center back stitches. Each front shoulder is picked up from the back shoulder cast-on and shaped with short rows. The tops of the sleeves are picked up along the sides and then the sleeve caps are knit along with the body. Garter edges and tops of shoulders are knit in a contrasting color. Split hems keep the fit relaxed.

Sample shown is worn with about an inch of positive ease.

Note: madelinetosh 80/10/10 Sport knits up easily at a DK weight.
