The colourwork for this pattern was inspired by some wallpaper that was inspired by Art Deco. Throw in a little lace, and a little linen, and you have the Deco pullover. Deco is available as a single pattern, or as part of the eBook Flapper Trio.

The body of Deco is worked from the bottom up in the round from the hem to the underarm. It starts with lace to create a scalloped hem, then transitions into stranded colourwork. At the underarm cast off, the front and back are separated. The colourwork is worked back and forth in rows to completion. The shoulders are shaped with short rows, and seamed together with Kitchener stitch so they lay flat. The top down set in sleeves are picked up from the armhole and worked down to the cuff. The sleeve caps are shaped by short rows.
