“To give the basic Aran pullover a little pizzazz, I added the bias cables on the front and back pieces. They add interest not only by changing the flow of the cables, but by changing the entire silhouette of the sweater. The biasing gives the slightest hint of a peplum and accentuates the waist naturally. And to keep the femininity, the neckband is a soft rollover versus a traditional ribbed neckband.” – Michele Wang

Garment pieces are worked flat, from the bottom up, then sewn together. The neckband is picked up after assembly and worked circularly.
