I’m honored to be a part of a new knit.purl Magazine!
knit.purl Fall/Winter 2015
And I’m pretty in love with my new Sedona Sweater!
From the Magazine: Build-as-you-go construction starts with a horizontal lower body in this pullover. With attached dolman sleeves and a wide neckline, the end result is graphically interesting and fits with roomy comfort.
Dolman Sleeves, negative ease
So the magazine pictures show the sweater with 2 1/2″ of positive ease, but here I’m showing it with about 3″ of negative ease – you can see how it fits tighter across my bust but is still nice and roomy around the middle, so those dropped stitches still have a really nice drape. Clearly you can see this sweater has a lot of forgiveness!
Super Roomy and Comfy
Finished Size 29¾ (33½, 37¼, 41, 46½)” bust circumference. Pullover shown measures 33½”, modeled with 2½” of positive ease.
