This pattern can be found in issue 9 of Laine Magazine.

Lumi is worked seamlessly in the round and top down using the contiguous set-in sleeves method to shape the shoulders and the sleeve caps. The pattern includes a “random” gradient which makes every sweater unique.
The body is composed of three different sections. The first section will be worked in stockinette stitch and the final section in reverse stockinette stitch. In the middle section, you will randomly work a pre-determined, increasing number of purl stitches. The number of purl stitches increases row by row.
