Pythagoras’ pullover is a cozy, slightly oversized pullover with a
turtle neck and (nearly) invisible sleeve inset. It is worked top down seamlessly in one piece. The stitch pattern is easy, it consists of purl and knit stitches only that form a mix of triangles (pythagoras !). Special increases are placed in clever spots following the stitch pattern to make them invisible.

Sizes
Intended to be worn with positive ease (10 to 25 cm / 4 to 10”). Take the measurement at your high bust just under the armpits.
The sample is size M worn with 15 cm / 6” of positive ease.

There are only four sizes available due to the kind of the increases and their placement. But it is easy to alter the stitch gauge and thus obtain the best size. (instructions are provided)
S, M, L, XL: finished measurements: 35” / 40½“ / 46” / 52“ (89 / 103 / 118 / 132 cm)
