Rather than using a marled yarn, the Lake Geneva Sweater’s look is created by holding two strands of the same yarn in different colors together throughout. The shorter row gauge of the garter stitch creates the shoulder slope.

Notes This pullover is worked from the top down. The back is worked separately back and forth to the underarms and the stitches are placed on holders. Stitches for each front are picked up along the back shoulders and increased for the neck, then each front is worked to the underarms. The three pieces are then joined and worked in the round to the lower edge. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up around the armhole and the sleeves are worked from the top down in the round.
