Slainte is the asymmetrical sweater you’ve been dreaming of. The slightly A-line body tapers into a sleek, elegant point on one side. Guaranteed to spruce up your jeans, your shorts, your summer skirts…The fabric has an irregular stripe pattern of elongated stitches. Super easy with lots of effect.
It’s knit in the round, contiguous, bottom-up. The sleeves are knit separate and combined with the body at the start of the arm opening. The neckband is picked up and knit.
You can slant the bottom sharply, like in the short-sleeve example, or more shallowly, like in the long-sleeved example. It has a round neck and a choice of long or short sleeves.
