Ardis

This lightweight pullover is knitted from the top down with set-in sleeves, a shallow V-neck, a comfortable swing silhouette, and no seams! A simple stranded colorwork pattern punctuates the color shift at the lower body and sleeves. The neck is edged with colorful garter ridges followed by a tiny roll; the body and sleeves are edged with a bit of single k1, p1 ribbing.

Stitches are cast on for the upper back, which is worked in rows down to the armholes. Stitches for the front are then picked up at the shoulders, and the front is also worked in rows down to the armholes, with the neck shaped along the way. The lower body is worked in rounds to the hem, with widely spaced increases at each side to produce the easy swing shape. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up around the armholes, the caps shaped with short-rows, then the rest of the sleeves are worked in rounds to the cuffs.

There are 8 finished sizes: 38 3/4 (40 3/4, 42 1/2, 44 1/2, 46 1/2, 48 1/4, 50 1/4, 52 1/4)” (98.5 [103.5, 108, 113, 118, 122.5, 127.5, 132.5 cm) circumference at bust.
