The Sediment Pullover draws inspiration from geological layers of sediment in rock formations, emphasized by the rustic, colorful tweed yarn. This sweater, knitted from the bottom up in the round, features short-row shaping to give it a curved high-low hemline. The simple wide neckline features an I-cord bind-off for a smooth, flattering edge.

NOTES

  • The body of this pullover is worked in the round to the underarm, with short-rows to shape the lower edge, then the front and back are worked separately back and forth. The sleeves are worked in the round, with the sleeve caps worked flat.
  • When working German short-rows, each double stitch counts as a single stitch.
