There’s a lovely little town in coastal Massachusetts called Essex. It’s filled with beautiful old homes and farms along the marsh, as well as numerous art galleries and antique shops. I have wonderful memories of horseback riding and biking the scenic roads and farms of Essex. This beautiful top, with its easy, comfortable fit, would be perfect for art- and antique-hunting in the village, or a quiet evening out on the deck overlooking the marsh.

This pullover is worked from the top down, beginning at the back shoulders. The back is worked to the armholes, then placed on hold while the front is picked up from the back shoulders and worked to the armholes. Then the back and front are joined and the body is worked to the bottom edge. The sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked to the cuffs, with short-row shaping to shape the sleeve caps.

If you are unfamiliar with working a set-in-sleeve sweater from the top-down, my 2-part tutorial gives you everything you’ll need to know to do it successfully.
