Squarish is a modern, cropped sweater, featuring geometric stranded pattern around the yoke and long puff sleeves. The work begins with the collar, followed by the circular yoke. Some short rows are added after the stranded pattern to create a scooped neckline. Body and sleeves are then separated, sleeve stitches are placed on hold and the body is worked in the round towards the hem.
Stitches for the sleeves are then placed back on the needles and the sleeves are worked in the round towards the cuffs.
The pattern includes photo tutorials for the folded edging and for the German short rows. The stranded pattern is both charted and written.
