Pattern Description:

This cropped pullover is worked circularly from the bottom edge to the underarm. The body is split at the armholes, and the front and back are worked back and forth separately. The shoulders are then joined and the sleeves are picked up at the armhole and knit to the cuff. The neckline trim is picked up and knit in the round. The little squares of color are reminiscent of confetti and are a result of changing colors when purling.
