Knitted in buttery-soft Merino wool yarn, this pattern uses simple stitches and a couple of pretty final flourishes to create a flattering sweater.
The sweater is knitted in the round, top down, with raglan shaping. The bottom edge has "stripes" of alternating stockinette stitch and reverse stockinette stitch, forming 3-dimensional welts. An i-cord is used to gather up the welts into soft folds at each side and is tied in a bow. The i-cord is easily removed if not wanted. (This welted design feature helps disguise an imperfect tummy area.)
The body is knitted in a "broken rib" pattern. Its texture adds interest and its stretchiness ensures a smooth fit.
The neckline and sleeve edges are trimmed with a delicate picot edging, adding a touch of elegance to this pretty, easy-to-wear top.
**Note**: You can easily customize the sleeve length and total length to your taste.
**Pattern has been test-knitted and tech-edited, to give you a pleasurable knitting experience.**

I have been knitting on and off since my teens, but became somewhat obsessed with it in 2007. I love squishy wools for the short, mild Los Angeles winters, and like cottons and blends for the rest of the year. I really believe that even beginner knitters can create something beautiful and useful, so I strive to keep patterns simple yet original. I am Goodstuff on Ravelry, and blog from time to time about knitting and life here: http://www.knitandtravelandsuch.blogspot.com/.
