The Biot Pullover is a stunning piece that has a pleasant balance between simple, easy knitting and detailed cable knitting. The body is worked in the round from the lower edge to the underarms. The wide, straight sleeves, worked in the round from the top down, add a punch of architectural texture. This is a great piece for any knitter who can use a cable needle! It’s a nice, long pullover that is cozy, casual, and perfect for layering.
