The February Fitted Pullover is a bust-friendly take on an old classic. This fitted, scoop-neck pullover is worked in the round to the neck shaping, then worked flat. Waist shaping occurs on the side, with one full lace repeat decreased for the waist on each side. If you desire more gentle waist shaping, please omit the waist shaping charts entirely and knit approximately 1''/2.5 cm at your natural waist on needles one size smaller than your main needle size.
The gull lace pattern and instructions for working waist shaping are offered both charted and in written form. Like most lace garments, the February Fitted Pullover will look best when knit in a yarn with some memory and which responds to blocking--the solid wool Dream in Color Classy is an excellent choice. Other wools that have been used successfully include Cascade 220, Madelinetosh Tosh DK, and Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label.
