I sometimes get addicted to a sweater. I will wear one sweater over and over, day after day, until my kids start to ask what happened to my other clothes. No matter what else is in my closet, I have a hard time putting on anything else. The Drop a Rainbow Pullover is an addictive sweater. Like the Sock Arms Cardigan, this pullover uses self-striping yarn in the
sleeves, but this time with a more casual drop shoulder construction. In the Drop a Rainbow Pullover, all the short row shaping is worked in the body of this sweater, making the sleeves happily low maintenance. A flattering spiral is worked around each sleeve to add a little twist to your self-striping yarn and hide the decreases.
