Notes: Solasta is a top-down pullover that begins with a provisional cast-on to form a deep boatneck with a folded neckband The circular yoke is decorated with colorful yarn scraps, marled with a brushed alpaca yarn, in a pattern that fades out along the chest. The body is slightly cropped in the front and longer in the back, with split side seams beginning at the waist. The sleeves mirror the yoke with more scrap marling, and are long and voluminous, ending with a cinched cuff to add a puffed structure. All edges are folded hems marled with a contrast sock yarn.
