Pattern Description:

Try something different... with this unique and stylish garment - the wrapped pullover. The diagonal cabled wrap hides a pocket and turns around the neck to form a cosy collar. It's unusual construction makes it very addictive to knit.

It is worked from the bottom up. The collar is asymmetrical in the back going from halfway the right sleeve to the top of the left sleeve. Sleeves are worked from the top down.

Short rows are used at the bottom and the waist shaping is assymetricly placed to compensate for the diagonal wrap.

All techniques used (short rows, provisional cast-on, ...) are explained in full detail.

Instructions are included for both long and short sleeved versions.

Is best worn with no ease or a negative ease (2-5cm, 0.75-2).
Available in a lot of in-between sizes for a perfect fit.
