Boho Bella is a feminine, lightweight and super comfy pullover perfect for the upcoming warmer weather of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. It is worked from the top down seamlessly and incorporates short rows to achieve a scoop neck. The yoke of the pullover has a delicate nature inspired lace pattern which has both written and charted instructions. The waist is brought in slightly with subtle decrease and increase shaping in the body. The bottom of the pullover is finished with a 1x1 twisted rib hem. The sleeves are either 3/4 or full length and are picked up around each armhole and knit in the round ending with 1x1 twisted rib cuffs. The Boho Bella pictured is knit in Milis by Julie Asselin in the Opera 2 colorway. Milis is a single ply hand dyed Merino yarn and light fingering in weight.
