Piilo (hideaway in Finnish) is a relaxed, boxy pullover with dropped shoulders and a neat chimney neck. It is knitted from the top down, mostly in the round (in the beginning, the Back and Front pieces are knitted flat). Even though it is a simple, uncomplicated sweater, there are a couple of tricks to learn: the stripes are jogless and the colour switches in the ribbing invisible.
