Kazual is a ‘casual’ pullover worked top down and seamlessly in the round.
It features striped welts on the shoulders and elbows and two small pockets. The welts are very easy to make: no difficult intarsia. Only one color is worked per row. You never need to join to the main color in the same row.
There are a few ends to weave in, but that shouldn’t scare you off: they are very easily hidden in the welts. The body has a slight A-line adding up to the relaxed, ‘casual’ feel and the cuffs and hems have a minimal finished look.

Everything you need to successfully finish your Kazual is included, no need to search on the web:

  • photo tutorials to work the striped welts and the special cast on technique
  • tutorials for short rows and jogless stripes.
