Fade it! Sideways sweater is knitted sideways from sleeve to sleeve, starting and ending with garter stitch cuffs. Dolman sleeves are shaped with short rows. At the shoulder, the neckline is created by splitting the work into front and back panels which are re-joined at the opposite shoulder. The sleeves are worked in the round, and the front and back are worked flat. The sweater is worked in one piece, then sides are seamed and, finally, garter stitch hem and neckband are added by picking up stitches around the bottom and neckline. Dolman sleeves are ¾ length, tight at the cuffs and loose at the top with beautiful, curved underarms turning into body. The sweater is designed to be oversized and slightly cropped at the front, longer in the back. Measure your hip (about 5 cm/2” above the fullest part of your hip) to determine correct size.
