“I have always liked models involving geometric shapes. I like the repetitive aspect of geometry that offers infinite creative possibilities! Since I have a weakness for the dolman style, I wanted to integrate the mitered square in a dolman pullover.

The front and the back are made from two mitered squares. Then, shoulders are sewn together and both sleeves are created by picking up stitches on each side of the square. The ¾ sleeves are shaped with short rows (back and forth rows may be added for extra width according to selected size) and ends with a ribbed cuff worked in the round. Hem and neckline ribbing is worked in the round as well by picking up stitches at the very end.“ - Louise Robert
