The Periodic Pullover is a modern, clean interpretation of the periodic table of elements. The sweater is worked from the bottom up in the round, and the top front and back are worked separately flat and seamed at the shoulders to create a simple boat neckline. The shoulders feature intentionally exposed seams that transition to a raw-edge neck. The sleeves are picked up around the armholes and worked out from the body in the round.
