Olmsted is a top-down, totally seamless pullover with a dipped hem, plait cables, and set-in sleeves. The shoulders, sleeve caps, and hem are shaped with short rows. The body has a bit of an A-line shape for comfort. The front and back feature a wide (wider on the back) panel of double seed stitch set off with a cable on each side. Easy to toss on over a button-down or alone, with jeans or a skirt, Olmsted is basically a fancy sweatshirt.

Skills needed: Knitting in the round, working short rows, basic increases and decreases, cables, picking up stitches, provisional and backwards loop cast ons, knitting with double-pointed needles.
