This fun, textured Pullover has fitted sleeves with a stranded motif, to balance out the ample shaped, uni-coloured, relaxed lower body. An innovative take on the neckline finishing provides a more polished look and produces a neat edging, reminiscent of sewn tubular bind-offs.
The set in sleeves in this little sport-weight jumper allow for a tailored look that still keeps a playful style with the use of contrast colour and stranded colour-work, which reflects the geometric form of the stitch pattern, that features all over the body and the cuffs.
Some interesting details, like the travelling lines that flow from the neckline towards the sleeves on the back side of the garment and the broken up motif of the stranded section, modernise the traditional influences of this garment.
Both hemline and sleeves are kept in a shorter style for a more flattering overall look, but can easily be adjusted to the preference of the knitter .
