Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit in-the-round
  • Basic lace stitches (YO, SSK, k2tog)
  • Cabling

Pattern Description:

This rendition of Julissa puts a new spin on the original, boat-necked pullover. The lower, scooped neckline along with a bit of waist shaping and flattering sleeve length all together create a modestly flirty and feminine piece that will complement a variety of body types.

This pullover is knit seamlessly from the top down using raglan shaping and a worsted weight yarn, which lends beautiful stitch definition to the cable and lace details. Choose from cap or three-quarter length sleeves and wear with a neutral or colored camisole underneath.

18 stitches and 28 rows = 4" (10 cm) in stockinette stitch, using larger needles
