This pullover is made from the bottom up in pieces and seamed, for a flattering fit. It is tapered outward from the waist, reaches its fullest point at the bust, then the armholes and the neck are shaped one after the other.

This super soft, easy to wear sweater has great stretch and is light as a feather when made out of the recommended chainette-style yarn. Not that it wouldn’t be lovely out of another favorite sport or light dk weight! ;)

The default length of this garment is the length shown in the light gray, long-sleeved version, meaning to fit about 2” below the natural waist.

If you’d like to make it a few inches longer, as shown in the dark grey vest version, just buy an extra ball of main color yarn- there is enough stretch that no additional shaping should be required.

It is common to need a size larger needle for stranded colorwork (as in the bobble pattern on the front piece) versus working in stockinette stitch (as on the back piece and the two sleeves)
