Introducing Delicious Toast – a high collared, side-buttoned pullover, perfect for seasonal transitions. This is a top down knit with almost no seaming. Its slouchy collar and slim sleeves are worked in the round while its bodice is worked flat – front and back worked separately due to their side buttoning attachment left open below the waist for easy wearing. Worked overall in a 3 stitch by 2 row repeating Garter Rib, its edges are trimmed with stretches of basic Garter. Short rows at intervals even out gauges between them. Sleeves are set-in. Here’s the related blog post about its name :). Enjoy!
