Don't be intimidated by the beautiful scalloped edging on this pullover! It's all knit (no crochet) and it looks far more complicated than it is; you don't have to be a master knitter to do it! The waist is nicely shaped to bring attention to your figure and flatter your hips - be sure to use a yarn with a lot of body so the shaping will look it's best.
18 sts and 27 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch
At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.
