Need a comfy cropped sweater with some personality? Look no further!! This Worsted weight/DK weight sweater is perfect to pull over your favorite dress, or some jeans. Dress it up, or wear it casual, this sweater fits all needs!!

Inspired by the book series, All Souls, being Spellbound means that you have had your power bound to you. This series was a huge inspiration to the sweater design. Sometimes, you need something easy to knit, but complicated enough to keep your attention.

Notes
This drop-shoulder style sweater is worked from the bottom up, seamlessly. The Hem and Body are worked in the round until the divide for the sleeves. The Front and Backs above the divide for the armholes are worked flat and the shoulders are finished using the 3-needle-BO. Sleeve sts are picked up along the edge of the armhole after the Body is complete.
I recommend before starting this knit, you take out a slightly oversized sweater that you enjoy the fit of, and measure across the bust. Then take a look at the finished garment measurements and determine what size you would like to knit.

When blocking the body of the sweater, aggressively block the torso so that the shoulders match up with the rest of the body. (in a boxy form)
