This is a very comfortable, easy-to-wear pullover. The square neck is flattering to many body types, and the side slit allows the pullover to skim the hips without clinging. The body is worked in-the-round to the armholes, and the sleeves are picked up and worked down from the armholes, so you can adjust the sleeve length as you wish.

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.
