Pattern Description:

Centripetal is a universally flattering and fashion-forward sweater that is surprisingly fast and easy-to-knit. The back and sleeves are knit flat using simple increases and decreases, and the rest of the sweater is a large, flat circle created using short rows to build a series of cabled wedges.

Short rows making you squeamish? Try the German Short Row Method to maintain your flow and eliminate that
pesky wrapping and turning. Video tutorial on my blog: http://laurendahl.com/centripetal

PS - This is not designed as a maternity sweater, but it will work great as one since it can be worn open or fastened above the bump. :)
