The pullover is constructed from the top down. First, the front panel is knitted flat, using German short rows to shape the shoulders and neckline. Once the front section is worked to the underarm, it is set aside. Next, stitches are picked up along the shoulders of the front panel. The back neckline is subtly shaped using short rows to enhance the overall fit. Knitting continues on the back panel until reaching the underarm level, where both the front and back panels are joined together. The body is worked in the round to the hem. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole and worked in the round.

SIZE GUIDE

To pick the correct size, measure yourself with a measuring tape around your bust. The recommended ease is 15 to 25 cm / 6 to 9¾”. Sample shown in size XS with 22.5 cm / 8¾” positive ease.

Please note that the finished measurements can only be achieved if the pullover is knitted in the correct gauge.
