Rippling Water is a top-down, seamless, cozy pullover with cowl neck.
It is a simple and quick project with a few interesting features: squishy Brioche stitch, beautiful shaping lines, unusual construction.
The whole sweater is worked in the round, we start the work with the cowl that is shaped with some increases creating the top of the sleeves. The yoke is shaped with raglan-like increases.
After separating the body and the sleeves, body is worked top down in the round to the hem.
Sleeves are worked from the underarm to the cuff in the round.
Worked with a heavy worsted or aran weight yarn at a loose gauge the result is an airy and drapey fabric.
