A pullover that gives you the opportunity to decide on sleeve length by proposing two different versions.
This Jumper uses intricate stripes to enhance the relaxed shaping on the body. The textured colour-work on shoulders and sleeves gives this design an interesting focus point and is complemented by the curving stripes at the yoke and the bottom half of the garment.
The short rows that create those arched lines provide some shaping to the ample fit of the body. They are also responsible for the slightly curved hem, that allows for a discreet bell-shape without the use of any decreases or increases.
Fitted Sleeves counterbalance the boxy body: Choose either 3/4 long sleeves or short ones - both are described in detail in this pattern.
Finally the hemline is worked with two strands in moss stitch, to give structure and drape to the overall shaping of the body.
All techniques and methods are either explained in the pattern itself with attached photo tutorials, or links are provided that point to web-tutorials.
