Nagare is a modified drop shoulder pullover with a flowing pattern on the front yoke and slightly ruched sleeves. The pattern includes two sleeve options: short and 3/4 length.

The pullover is worked seamlessly from the top down with two strands of lace-weight summer yarn.
First, the neck edge is worked in the round, and shoulder increases and neck shaping are worked with German short rows. After that, continue shoulder increases in the round to the final width, then the front and the back are worked flat separately to the underarm. They are joined again and the body is worked in the round to the hem. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole and worked in the round to the cuff.
The pattern instructions are written, and the wave pattern is both written and charted.
