This pattern uses a simple color method called slip-stitch color. You work with only one color at a time, sometimes knitting a stitch with the new color and sometimes slipping a stitch of the former color. Less experienced knitters can work simple stripes instead of the slip-stitch color portion if they choose and they will still have a stylish and relatively easy pullover. More experienced knitters can work shaping at the waist, bust and shoulders if desired; custom fit tips are highlighted in the pattern at appropriate places.

Sizes are based on CYCA sizes and adjusted for ease. This pullover is meant to be worn over another top, so it’s made to be worked with 3” to 4” ease at the bust, 2” to 3” ease in the arms (biceps), and about 1” more in the armhole depth. Pattern contains full sizing information.

Color charts are provided for the slip-stitch color work on the body as well as for the slip-stitch color work + increases on the sleeves. Additionally, there are photos of how this color work method is done.
