I knit my sweater in Must Stash Yarn Sweater Weather. The Worsted Sock Arms pullover is the same fun construction and fit found in the Sock Arms, butQUICKER TO KNIT.

This sweater is all about color play! This sweater is perfect (and specifically designed) for self-striping and gradient yarns. It’s also great for pairing solids, tonals, and variegated skeins. There are so many yarn options. The specially modified, set-in sleeves are SEAMLESS and simple to knit. The modified sleeve cap allows for uninterrupted stripes on your sleeves. FUN SLEEVES! This sweater is knit from the bottom up, in the round. It includes waist shaping and instructions for adjusting the circumference of your sleeves. It has instructions for adjusting the fit for your body, so that you can increase/decrease the ease of your sweater. The Worsted Sock Arms also includes a rounded hemline.
