Inspired by the peaks and ski slopes of the Alpine mountains, this standard-fitting pullover is not quite cropped but falls just below the waist, making it a flattering piece to wear with skirts or over long dresses. I designed this sweater to work with chainette yarns, which are fabulous in so many ways. To provide extra stability with chainette yarns, it is worked flat from the bottom up and seamed. The pattern has both charts and is written out for knitter’s preference. It is soft, airy, cuddly and so comfy to wear.
