Just Float was designed for colorwork relaxation. Knit seamlessly in the round from the top down, it is straightforward pattern with lots of graphic drama. The pattern includes instructions for short or long sleeves, making it a great pullover for any season. The pattern includes short rows to raise the back of the neck for a comfortable neckline. The colorwork chart is designed so that you never have to catch a single float. No need to slow down to trap those long, pesky floats. This pattern just doesn’t have any. Instead, kick back, grab your needles, relax, and JUST FLOAT.
